Reading Time: 2 minutes

17.08.2018 – Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, today announced an historic breakthrough in the US casino gaming market — the opening of the company’s first USA Live Casino studio, in New Jersey.

The new purpose-built Live Casino production studio for the US market is Evolution’s tenth Live Casino studio worldwide. The news follows recent announcements by Evolution that 888casino, Resorts Casino Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, PlaySugarHouse.com operated by Rush Street Interactive and Ocean Resort Casino Atlantic City will all use the new Evolution US studio to launch Live Casino services for players in New Jersey.

The New Jersey studio launch is another significant milestone in Evolution’s growing North American presence, which already includes a dedicated Live Casino studio for Canada — opened in Vancouver in January 2018 — as well as a number of Evolution Dual Play (on-premise and online) Roulette tables for the Atlantic City gaming floors of Resorts Casino Hotel, Ocean Resort Casino and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

The studio and supporting infrastructure provide a state-of-the-art B2B Live Casino solution for multiple operators wishing to offer world-class Live Casino gaming to online players on desktop, tablet and smartphone. Initially the studio offers 10 online live tables and a wide range of Evolution game variants: American (Double Zero) Roulette, Blackjack with side bets and Bet Behind, Baccarat, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker, plus Slingshot Roulette.

Further game launches and additional tables, including dedicated tables that can be used by operators for live sporting event promotions and to cross-promote land-based casino attractions, for example, all form part of the studio’s expansion plans.

So far, employment opportunities have been created for 50-plus people. Recruitment continues, and further jobs will be created as studio operations expand.

Evolution CEO Martin Carlesund commented: “Our entry into the US market has been a carefully considered long-term project. Back in 2013 Evolution became the first Live Casino provider to gain New Jersey Preliminary Waiver approval. Having closely monitored US market developments over the past few years, while reinforcing our position as Live Casino market leaders in Europe, we believe that now is the right time to launch with a full-fledged studio facility for the US.”

Carlesund added: “Now we have a fantastic Live Casino studio in New Jersey — with a wide choice of live games from day one, and ample room for expansion and the rapid ramping up of services to meet our new US licensees’ needs. We are now extremely well placed to support our licensees as they acquire and grow market share in the exciting new US Live Casino market.”

Oneida Indian Nation Announces Multi-Million Dollar Expansion at YBR Casino to Create New Entertainment Experience with Social Games
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Located in Chittenango Plaza, the expansion includes a new entertainment wing featuring a six-lane luxury Brunswick Bowling center, two Topgolf Swing Suite bays, pool tables, shuffle board, a stylish full-service bar, and new dining options.  The renovation project also includes a redesign of the casino’s exterior.

The Oneida Indian Nation announced the third phase of construction at its YBR Casino, located in the Village of Chittenango. The renovation will expand upon the casino’s extensive gaming options with a new state-of-the-art entertainment wing, slated to open in early February. It will feature a six-lane luxury Brunswick Bowling center, two high-tech Topgolf Swing Suite bays, and other social games. The new section will also feature a new full-service bar and dining, more than ten television screens and dedicated sports-betting stations. The renovation will also include an exterior redesign that stylishly combines the aesthetics of Central New York’s industrial history with a modern 21st-century look.

YBR Casino’s expanded amenities include partnerships with Topgolf Swing Suite and Brunswick Bowling, two leading national brands in the recreational gaming:

TOPGOLF SWING SUITE

Topgolf Swing Suite is the country’s most popular provider of interactive group-golfing venues, delivering fun for all ages where golfers and non-golfers alike can come together for playful competition. Both of the bays at the YBR Topgolf Swing Suite will feature a variety of HDTVs, comfortable lounge seating, golf and non-golf games, including Zombie Dodgeball, Baseball Pitching, Soccer, Hockey and more.

BRUNSWICK BOWLING

Brunswick Bowling, a leader in the bowling industry for over 125 years that specializes in creating modern, full-service bowling centers around the world, will construct a six-lane center featuring top-of-the-line equipment designed to create an engaging experience for guests of all ages and skill levels.

ADDITIONAL SOCIAL GAMES AND NEW DINING

New entertainment amenities at YBR Casino include the addition of pool tables and shuffle boards—popular social games with a new generation of guests.

YBR Casino also recently launched new weekly live esports tournaments.  Every Wednesday, the tournaments bring egamers to The Lounge with Caesars Sports at YBR Casino to compete for weekly cash prizes, Free Play and more.

BURGERS OF MADISON COUNTY

YBR Casino opened the newest location of Burgers of Madison County, the extremely popular restaurant from Point Place Casino, with a menu of delicious burgers, milkshakes and more.

“With the latest renovations to our gaming floor, the addition of The Lounge with Caesars Sports and this next phase of expansions, YBR will be completely transformed into a multi-entertainment venue unlike anything else in the area,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “This new phase of renovations at YBR is geared to exceed guest expectations, and is a reflection of the Oneida Indian Nation’s ongoing commitment to reinvesting in Central New York. By expanding our offerings, we will be creating new jobs and helping to revitalize the region as a premier tourist destination.”

This expansion builds on the Oneida Indian Nation’s collaborations with national brands in the gaming and entertainment fields. Earlier this year, the Oneida Indian Nation partnered with Caesars Entertainment to develop The Lounge with Caesars Sports, state-of-the-art sports-betting venues with VIP amenities, luxury seating and award-winning menus. YBR Casino is now home to New York State’s largest sports book and has proven to be a winner with new and loyal casino guests alike.

“The expansion of entertainment options at YBR Casino and the reputation the Oneida Indian Nation has for offering the best amenities for guests is consistent with the fun, social experiences guests know and expect from Topgolf,” said Peter Kratsios, Director of Business Development from Topgolf Swing Suite.  “More than half of the guests who enjoy Topgolf have never touched a golf club in their life, so we are confident the addition of Topgolf Swing Suites will attract new guests, golfers and non-golfers, to the property.”

“We’re excited about our partnership with the Oneida Indian Nation and bringing new entertainment options to YBR Casino,” said Jason Dean, Director of New Business Development for Brunswick Bowling Products. “When experienced in an atmosphere like YBR Casino, we know that Brunswick Bowling will be the perfect complement to the YBR Casino experience.”
