Bally’s is looking to make headway into the North American live casino space after entering into a “strategic partnership” to leverage Stakelogic’s software and technology.
This follows Rhode Island’s entry into the US igaming space, with last month’s legalisation meaning the region became the seventh US state to legalise online casino. This also extended Bally’s role as the sole active casino operator in the area to now include the activity.
Regulated by the state lottery, the igaming offering is only available to people playing in the Ocean State that are over the age of 21. The company will also provide funding to help with responsible gambling education.
“We are thrilled to partner with Stakelogic to bring our live casino operations online in Rhode Island,” stated Robeson Reeves, Chief Executive Officer of Bally’s Corporation.
“With a partner like Stakelogic, we know we are putting our best foot forward, and we are confident that we will be able to provide our Rhode Island customers with a truly exciting live dealer experience.”
This will see the group leverage Stakelogic Live’s software and studio technology, in a bid to “establish” the group’s live casino offering across the North American digital gaming ecosystem.
Bally’s noted that it expects to launch a suite of online live casino games, such as blackjack, roulette, and baccarat, in Rhode Island by April 2024.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Bally’s as it will finally enable Stakelogic to bring its technology to the US,” added Stephan van den Oetelaar, Stakelogic CEO.
“It will also enable us to build on our tremendous growth since launching live casino 14 months ago, positioning Stakelogic as a leading technology company in the igaming industry.”
