For bettors who will be in the vicinity during the seven day trial period, trying out a game or two at the live studio hub will definitely be worth it. Thereafter, the casino gaming developer has scheduled to have a full launch as well enter into august. 

Casino players will admit that the live dealer gaming option is quite inviting especially for players who love suspense and thrill offered in their favorite game. The location for the new Evolution Studio will be Fairfield and this is particularly great news for gambling fans living in the area. Traveling to bet will be a thing of the past as players in this region begin to enjoy betting at their convenience. Connecticut neighbors better start looking out for events they can cross over to participate in. 

The expansion of Evolution brand to encompass service delivery is proof of the fact that the gambling industry is large enough to accommodate any brand that has a unique offering. Lamont is confident that the residents of Connecticut will appreciate this new player especially because they are joining the industry with a wealth of experience in what customers look for in a betting experience. 

Evolution is proof of the industry’s commitment to provide their customers with an advanced technological gaming experience that will offer users a top-tier experience for the players who are eligible. The Governor is keen on having the residents as well as visitors with an unparalleled gaming experience. The focus is not only to entertain those players who reside in the state but also to make Connecticut the choice destination for bettors who are looking to travel for purposes of gambling. 

Over the past few decades, the people of Connecticut have consistently supported the gambling industry in the state making the industry a high flyer among regions that are performing well in the sector. In a recent press release, Lamont appreciated the addition of Evolution as a key component in the provision of modern and technologically forward gaming experiences. Eligible residents of Connecticut as well as visitors from neighboring states are in for an elevated user experience from operators within this jurisdiction. By exposing the people of this state to an expansive gaming industry, gaming enthusiasts can engage in responsible betting. 

The release also provided insight into the company’s plans to staff its new gaming studios. A total of 140 workers have already been hired and this figure is expected to go up to 400 to cater to the growing number of players. The state laws in Connecticut dictate that any gambling business operating in the area must be run out of a physical facility so that it is practical to include live dealer games in their product offerings. 

Gaming through DraftKings and FanDuel

For now, the guests of Evolution will only be able to experience roulette and blackjack but there are plans for expansion in the future. The plan is to have more live dealer games in an expansion effort that will see the casino achieve a full launch. This is the soft launch period and less is expected before the casino embarks on greater plans of offering more to its customers. 

There will be live dealer games available for those who have access to the DraftKings and FanDuel apps in Connecticut. This option definitely adds to the state’s plethora of live games and the list continues to grow. 

A few weeks ago, DraftKings Casino revealed to the gaming world that it would be offering Bragg Gaming options in Connecticut following a deal with the developer. Gaming enthusiasts in the state can now indulge in Bragg’s Spin Games RGS (remote game server) slots which include Ripley's Big Wheel and Galaxy Gaming’s 21 + 3 Progressive Blackjack.

During the first quarter of the year, DraftKings signed an agreement with Inspired Entertainment that would allow the betting operator to offer the developer’s games in the Nutmeg State. This has been received positively in the market and the fact that DraftKings is a trusted gambling brand definitely opens more doors for partners.

In the United States right now, only six states offer real money online gaming, also known as iGaming and Connecticut is one of them. Having joined the league of iGaming states in October 2021, the state now features in a league that includes Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia. Along with Nevada, the six states have also legalized online poker

Live gaming had for a long time been confined to land based casinos but this took a complete overhaul when people were forced into social isolation. The internet enabled live dealer games and there has been no looking back for a lot of people. With an online gaming hub in Connecticut gambling tourism just got a shot in arm. 


By choosing Connecticut as its newest iGaming destination, Evolution has provided an opportunity for this state to open up its market to the world. While there are other established markets in the country, the fact that Connecticut offers a fresh feel will get the world noticing. It will be interesting to see how the residents respond and in turn how guests like what is being served at this location.
