(PRESS RELEASE) -- Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that it has signed an agreement to provide live casino services from its new U.S. live studio in Atlantic City, NJ, to DraftKings.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Boston, MA, DraftKings offers daily fantasy sports contests across 11 professional sports in eight countries including the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia. On 6 August 2018, the company launched DraftKings Sportsbook in New Jersey, becoming the first operator to offer legal online and mobile sports betting in the state.

DraftKings was first to market in New Jersey with online sports betting, just a couple of months after filing for its license with the New Jersey regulators. We very much look forward to working with DraftKings on this project.”
