Saying that iGaming was the main topic of conversation at last week’s third edition of the SBC | Summit North America in Secaucus, N.J., would be putting it mildly.

Michigan online gambling got the latest taste of iGaming Monday.

FanDuel Michigan announced its first branded live dealer studios in Michigan and Pennsylvania in partnership with Evolution.

The new live-dealer experience allows FanDuel to expand its rapidly growing online casino portfolio.

Michigan and Pennsylvania are among the few states in the U.S. that have legal real money online casinos, along with Connecticut, Delaware, New Jersey and West Virginia.

Those states, plus Nevada, have online poker.

All of FanDuel’s live dealer games, including blackjack and roulette, now will be streamed for Michigan and Pennsylvania customers directly from FanDuel’s live dealer studios.

A dedicated live dealer studio offers FanDuel the ability to offer players exclusive promotions as well as the addition of live updates and dynamic statistics.

Both novice and experienced players should find benefits in the FanDuel Live Dealer Games.

FanDuel Casino is currently available in four states (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia). It also operates the Stardust brand in New Jersey and Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.

FanDuel Casino touts its array of protections that it says shows its strong commitment to responsible gaming. 


Evolution Launches Live Casino Studio in Connecticut Monday

In conjunction with the FanDuel announcement, Evolution announced Monday the launch of its new Connecticut live casino studio.

This will be Evolution’s fourth studio as it continues to find ways to serve the regulated iGaming market in the United States.

Evolution is based in Sweden. According to a news release, it bills itself as “developing, producing, marketing and licensing fully-integrated B2B Live Casino solutions to gaming operators.”

Founded in 2006, it is a top B2B provider working with more than 600 operators and has more than 14,000 employees in North America and Europe.

Existing Evolution customers FanDuel and DraftKings went live on day one of the studio launch, initially offering live dealer roulette and blackjack. 

“Evolution is proud and excited to further expand its North American footprint and to once again help operators be first into a new online market,” said Jeff Millar, commercial director of North America at Evolution, in a news release. “We are confident that online players in Connecticut, just like players in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia before them, will enjoy a truly world-class gaming experience.

“We look forward to many exciting years working in partnership with our operators to bring players the most innovative online gaming and entertainment solutions and even greater choice. Our studio offers plenty of headroom for this exciting market. There’s room to expand to meet licensees’ needs, and room to operate dedicated, exclusively branded tables and environments, which are very popular with both our operators.”
