The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has officially cleared Evolution of any misconduct following an investigation into allegations of illegal activity in markets subject to US sanctions.

The investigation stemmed from a report received by the NJDGE in November 2021.

The report, submitted by an unidentified firm, alleged that the supplier’s live casino games were accessible in black market jurisdictions such as Iran, Syria, and Sudan.

At the time, Evolution refuted the allegations and said the claim originated from an anonymous third party with the intention to discredit its business.

The company highlighted the rigorous protocols in place to verify geographic locations and emphasised its role as a B2B provider, responsible for supplying services to operators who, in turn, manage player interactions and compliance with regulatory requirements.

Nonetheless, the NJDGE launched an enquiry into the matter to ascertain the veracity of the allegations.

No evidence found

However, the NJDGE has now informed the B2B supplier that it found no evidence to substantiate claims that Evolution had sanctioned, promoted, or benefited from content offered by operators in jurisdictions deemed prohibited by New Jersey regulations.

Evolution also conducted its own internal review, affirming the adequacy of its due diligence and compliance procedures. 

Furthermore, the company took proactive steps to enhance its processes, a move supported by the NJDGE, although these enhancements were not related to any jurisdictional violations.

The NJDGE’s investigation into this matter has been closed without requiring further action.

The allegations initially caused a ripple effect in the market, with Evolution’s share price plummeting by over 16% during the week following the allegations.
