CHERRY HILL, N.J., Aug, 2018 — Rush Street Interactive, which operates PlaySugarHouse.com in New Jersey, is once again leading the online gaming market by launching a Live Dealer Casino powered by Evolution Gaming, the global leader in the live dealer and table games category. Evolution has been named Global Live Casino Supplier of the Year by eGaming Review (EGR) nine years in a row, one of the highest levels of awarded excellence in e-gaming.

Evolution’s new online product will make its debut on PlaySugarHouse.com with an exciting mix of live tables including low and high stakes Blackjack games (including side bets such as 21 +3, Any Pairs and Bet Behind), Roulette, Slingshot Roulette and Baccarat. It will also offer two exciting and exclusive live poker games: Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em Poker-which are launching for the first time in the US online gaming market.

Live dealer games combine the convenience and ease of online gambling with the trustworthy and social aspect of being at real tables with real dealers in real time.

“A live dealer game is the closest you can get online to playing in a land-based casino,” said Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive. “Many players prefer live dealer options because they watch it happen live, which gives them a higher level of trust in the outcome. We’re excited to now offer those players this opportunity to virtually sit and play on Evolution’s world renowned live tables.”

“Evolution pioneered the product category and is globally considered to have the leading live dealer products,” said Ken Adams, Head of New Jersey Operations for Rush Street Interactive. “This reinforces PlaySugarHouse.com’s commitment to offering New Jersey’s online players the best mix of innovative and entertaining games available.”

“SugarHouse Online Casino is well established as one of the leaders in the New Jersey market and we are confident that the Evolution-hosted Live Dealer Casino will prove very popular,” said James Stern, Evolution’s Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales. “On top of an exceptional range of world-class live games and exclusive content, we have extensive experience as we already run 400-plus live tables from multiple state-of-the-art Live Casino studios. At the player interface level, our Blackjack is the fastest, slickest online Live Blackjack available anywhere, so players get more game rounds and more excitement from every gaming session.”

SugarHouse Live Casino dealers will serve players from Evolution’s sophisticated state-of-the-art studio in Atlantic City. The service will launch with 10 gaming tables, although more tables and games are expected to be added before the end of the year. The games are run in real time and payouts calculated in seconds so players online or on their mobile devices will feel as if they are sitting in a real casino.

PA Commonwealth Court Rules Pennsylvania Skill Video Game Machines are Slot Machines
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court has ruled that the video game machines manufactured and distributed by the company POM under the name “Pennsylvania Skill” are considered “slot machines” under Pennsylvania law.

“With this decision, we urge the Pennsylvania State Police, the Office of Attorney General, police departments and District Attorneys across the state to enforce Pennsylvania law to halt the proliferation of thousands of illegal Pennsylvania Skill slot machines now in convenience stores, bars, restaurants and other establishments in communities across the state,” Thomas C. Bonner, Group VP / Legal & Chief Counsel for Parx Casino said.

“We know that illegal slot machines and full-blown illegal casinos are popping up all over Pennsylvania. We know that minors are gambling, and we know that the state Lottery is losing tens of millions of dollars that should be going to our seniors because of these illegal machines. It’s time to confiscate these machines and put these illegal casinos out of business,” Bonner added.

The Commonwealth Court’s clarification that the “Pennsylvania Skill” games are “slot machines” under Pennsylvania law provides concrete and clear legal justification for law enforcement at the state and local levels to confiscate such machines and prosecute those responsible for manufacturing, distributing, leasing, or owning these machines.
