About the Evolution Gaming & Scientific Games Agreement

In terms of the agreement, Evolution will serve as the sole Live Casino provider to offer the game as part of its product range with the option to extend with more game content from Scientific Games’ proprietary portfolio of games.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is currently one of the most popular house-banked Texas Hold’em game in the world, generating more than €1.5 billion in Gross Gaming Revenue in land based casinos globally. The game is fully scalable and it is, therefore, possible to deal an unlimited number of players from one table.

According to a statement issued by Evolution Gaming, the game is bound to be an attractive tool for operators to convert poker players into casino players. The statement went on to say that it is expected that the game will be initially launched to licensees this summer.

Tom Wood, the Vice President and Chief Product Officer, B2B, Interactive at Scientific Games commented on the new deal by saying that there was a time when a dozen different Hold’em games were being offered by casinos, but that only this one emerged from the pack as the dominant game at land-based casinos around the world. Wood went on to say that they are confident that the game’s scalability and pace will result in it being an excellent game in the Live Casino environment and they are extremely excited to see Evolution with its industry-leading platform being the provider to make it happen.

The Chief Product Officer of Evolution Gaming, Todd Haushalter, revealed that they are excited about furthering their partnership with Scientific Games. He added that being in a position to exclusively offer their partners the most popular Hold’em game in the world helps them to further cement their leadership position in the Live Casino space.
