Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that it has signed an agreement with Matchbook, the rapidly-growing sports betting exchange.

As a result of the agreement, Matchbook will expand its Live Casino games offering with content from the full portfolio of Evolution Live Casino products on desktop, tablet and smartphone. The extended Live Casino content offering is expected to go live in Q2 2017.

Matchbook already complements its leading sports betting offering with proprietary Casino Table Games and 3rd party Slots, Video Poker and Live Dealer content.

As well as extending the number of Live Roulette and Blackjack tables currently offered, the agreement with Evolution gives Matchbook scope to add Immersive Roulette, Live Baccarat including Squeeze and Control Squeeze, numerous Live Dealer Poker variants and Evolution’s new Dream Catcher Live Lucky Wheel.

Cian Nugent, speaking on behalf of Matchbook, said: “Having recently completed the switch to our brand new platform, this is just the latest in a series of significant improvements to the Matchbook customer experience and a further signal of our intent in 2017 and beyond. Live casino has been a big area of growth for us in the last 12 months already and with Evolution recognised as a leader in live casino, and with this agreement Matchbook players will have increased opportunities to play different games and different tables, across even more devices.”

Sebastian Johannisson, Chief Commercial Officer at Evolution, commented: “We are very confident that Matchbook players will love their new extended line-up of Live Casino games. The Evolution games will bring something new, fresh and different – including exclusive titles such as Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Live Three Card Poker and Immersive Roulette. At the same time, the unique Progressive Jackpot side bet in our Live Caribbean Stud Poker adds potential for further big money wins alongside Matchbook’s existing Big Jackpots.”

Johannisson added: “Very importantly, the Evolution games will significantly extend ‘anytime, anywhere’ access for Matchbook’s players. Mobile access to our Live Casino games now accounts for over 45% of game revenue across our network. Mobile play, available on over 200-plus tables is a fundamental bedrock growth in today’s Live Casino market.”
