Authentic Gaming and Foxwoods agree live casino partnership

Authentic Gaming, supplier of premium live casino solutions to both online and land-based operators, has forged a landmark partnership with Foxwoods Resort Casino that will see it live stream roulette games from the gaming floor of the Connecticut casino to online players.

North America’s largest, and the world’s fifth largest resort casino, Foxwoods is owned and operated by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and features more than 9 million square feet of gaming, entertainment, hotel, shopping and dining spaces.

The ground-breaking deal enables live casino players in Europe and around the globe to access, for the first time, live table games from the gambling floor of a land-based casino in the U.S. via the Malta-based supplier’s Authentic Roulette product.

A single zero, European roulette table will be the first table to go live. It will be streamed live from the Club Newport VIP room, which is located at the Grand Pequot Casino; just one of six casinos located within the resort.

Authentic Roulette enables the live streaming of games from roulette tables located on land-based operator’s casino floors to a limitless number of online players by way of Authentic Gaming’s network of B2B clients including but not limited to NYX Gaming Group, LeoVegas, Mr Green, Unibet, Bethard Group and EveryMatrix.

Another perk of the partnership; online operators will have the opportunity to offer their customers exclusive promotions, such as trips to the southeastern Connecticut monolith that include nights at the casino and shopping sprees.

Commenting on the new partnership, Authentic Gaming CEO Jonas Delin, said: “This is a breakthrough deal for us and the wider online gambling industry. It marks the very first time any live casino game has been streamed from the floor of a US casino to European players.

“Foxwoods Resort Casino is the largest casino complex in the US, offering thousands of slots and several hundred table games in addition to world renowned restaurants and nightclubs. I’m sure players will be drawn to games streamed from Foxwoods, porting them right to the heart of the action,” according to the news release.

Meanwhile, Foxwoods Director of Online Gaming, Seth Young, said the following: “We are thrilled to be the first US casino to stream live to online players in Europe and around the world. This is a fantastic opportunity for Foxwoods to extend its brand internationally, and to show the world what it means to experience Foxwoods hospitality.”

Another recent development at Foxwoods is the addition of Rainmaker Stadium to its world-class gaming portfolio. The dynamic stadium gaming experience located in the Rainmaker Casino features 30 play terminals and three live dealer offerings, including Mini-Baccarat and Blackjack.
