Evolution has agreed a deal with bet365 to provide it with its portfolio of live dealer games.

NEXT.io understands the games went live in a limited number of markets last week, including the UK and Malta.

Bet365 currently lists 12 Evolution live dealer games available to consumers. Among other titles, Evolution’s Lightning series, Crazy Time, Dream Catcher and Monopoly Live are listed.

The titles are currently listed under the operator’s Games tab, as opposed to the Live Dealer section of the site.

The supplier intends to announce the new partnership to coincide with tomorrow’s (24 April) Q1 financial report, according to industry sources.

The deal follows on from Evolution-owned Nolimit City’s previously announced agreement to provide online slot games to the brand.

Bet365 was reportedly one of the last major online operators without a live dealer agreement with Evolution.

Playtech exclusivity agreement ended

The Stoke-based operator previously had an exclusive live dealer agreement with Playtech.

However, NEXT.io understands this exclusivity ended several years ago.

Playtech remains a core live dealer provider for bet365, supplying live table games and game shows including its recently announce Super Mega Ultra live offering.

The Isle of Man-registered provider also supplies all game titles under bet365’s Live Casino tab on its iGaming mobile app and website.

The news of Evolution signing a live dealer deal with bet365 may provide a boost to the company’s financial results.

The business reported €405.6m in revenue in Q4 2023, up 21.1% from the same period in the previous year.

The live dealer segment continued to be the highlight, with continued expansion in Evolution’s capacity meeting an ongoing rise in demand.

Evolution previously said in Q3 2023 that growing demand for its live dealer services had outpaced its capacity to deliver.

With bet365 growing in the US, the news could also prove to be a boost to Evolution’s North American business, which has been a focus for the supplier in recent years.
