Evolution subsidiary Ezugi launches in Ontario with theScore, Bet99

Brand will supply live casino content to Toronto-based brands

Evolution subsidiary Ezugi has launched its live casino offering in Ontario.

Ezugi content includes casino table games such as baccarat, blackjack and roulette, as well as live game shows and a wide range of regional titles, all streamed from Ezugi’s studios in Europe.

Those products, including games such as Ultimate Roulette, Andar Bahar, Ultimate Andar Bahar and Lucky 7, will now be available on the platforms of Toronto-headquartered brands theScore Bet and Bet99 throughout the province. Bet99 launched its new sportsbook and casino app last September.

The launch in Ontario comes eight years after Ezugi made its North American debut in the U.S. market. Additional rollouts in Ontario are expected to be announced in the next few months.

“After an exciting few years of consolidating our market position and extending our games portfolio, this is a very significant step for Ezugi and its growth,” said Ezugi Chief Commercial Officer Pang Wee Goh. “Ontario has long been on our radar, representing the ideal progression in Ezugi’s ongoing expansion throughout North America. I am confident that operators in Ontario will benefit from our large and innovative games portfolio, which truly offers something different for players.”

The North American Evolution continues

Evolution has been taking further steps to expand its North American operations in recent months.

In February, the group confirmed it is acquiring Livespins for around $7.3 million CAD. Livespins is now another brand under the Evolution Group umbrella, including Ezugi and others such as NetEnt, Big Time Gaming, Red Tiger and others.

The same month, it announced a new strategic agreement with Caesars Digital to establish dedicated live casino studios in multiple states across the U.S., including one inside Caesars’ New Jersey-based Tropicana Casino.

The following month, it unveiled a deal with Rush Street Interactive to launch its online slots in Delaware via the BetRivers platform.

And earlier in June, it launched slot games from another of its gaming studios, Nolimit City, across six U.S. states.
