Evolution Gaming claims demand remains strong despite coronavirus impact

Evolution Gaming has said there is a continued strong demand for its products, despite the disturbances caused by the coronavirus outbreak.


In its business update, the supplier claimed daily operations have been largely undisturbed and business demand remains high.

The supplier noted many players have switched to playing casino games, since the suspension of all major sporting events around the world has severely impacted sports betting.

Evolution Gaming added it has followed global advice, including using disinfection and implementing social distancing among its employees.

The virus has so far claimed more than 10,500 lives worldwide out of nearly 259,00 cases, at the time of writing.

Evolution Gaming CEO Martin Carlesund said: "It’s a turbulent time and it's inevitable COVID-19 also impacts our business, but all employees are now doing a hard and fantastic job.

"We have a strong financial position and, in the midst of all this, we experience high demand for our live casino."

Interestingly, in a statement on 19 March, supplier Playtech said it expects the live casino vertical to be impacted by the outbreak, providing the opposite viewpoint to Evolution Gaming’s report.
