LeoVegas AB: Breakthrough for Authentic Gaming in USA


LeoVegas' subsidiary Authentic Gaming has entered into an agreement with Foxwoods Resort Casino which will enable players outside the USA to play online at the USA's largest casino.

The partnership will make it possible for the first time to gain online access to live casino games at a land-based casino in the USA. Distribution will be handled through Authentic Gaming's network of operators, which includes LeoVegas.

"This is the first time that live casino will be streamed from a US casino to European players. I am sure that players will be drawn to games from USA's largest casino, and we also expect to see growing interest from more operators,"says Jonas Delin, CEO of Authentic Gaming.

Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO, LeoVegas, comments: "It is fantastic to see that we in the LeoVegas Group have succeeded with yet another unique achievement. The entire team at Authentic Gaming has worked hard to bring this partnership about, so great praise to them."

Authentics Gaming's live casino product has now been launched by more than 20 operators on some 75 sites. Authentic Gaming's performance is favourable, but is not expected to have any material impact on the LeoVegas Group's growth and earnings in the near term perspective.
