Evolution Gaming's First Studio Outside Of Europe Goes Live

Publish: 12.02.2018

One of the global leaders in live dealer gaming Evolution Gaming has proudly announced the opening of its new Canada studio located in New Westminster, British Columbia.

The new state-of-the-art facility is the first Evolution Gaming’s studio outside of Europe and represents a part of the deal to offer Live Casino content through the British Columbia’s crown corporation.

The 16,000 square feet complex is situated near the Anvil Center and Westminster Pier Park.

An Important Move For The Province As Well

Initially, the studio will offer Live Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat games, but will later expand its offering and launch Live Casino solutions for other Canadian operators, which will be able to share Live Casino tables or offer their own.

The opening of the new studio has created more than 50 new jobs for the local community, while that number will jump to a total 170 once the studio expands its operations.

This is Evolution Gaming’s eighth studio, but the very first one on this side of the Atlantic Ocean as well as its first one operating with a standalone data center.

Strengthening The Offer

Commenting on this milestone in the company’s history, Evolution Group Chief Executive Officer Martin Carlesund said that after months of planning and hard work by Evolution and BCLC staff, both sides were delighted that the new studio was live and serving online players in British Columbia.

He added the company was very excited by the future since BCLC had a strong multi-channel, multi-product offering that would now become even stronger with the addition of world-class Evolution-powered Live Casino.

Monica Bohm, Monica Bohm, BCLC’s Vice-President, eGaming said the addition of new and innovative products from Evolution’s Live Casino portfolio for existing and new players would help keep BCLC at the forefront of gambling entertainment and create jobs locally.
