FanDuel opens US live casino studios


In partnership with Evolution, FanDuel has launched its dedicated live casino studios in the US states of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

An agreement struck in February sees Evolution acting as FanDuel’s exclusive live casino games provider in the US, and all of FanDuel’s branded live casino games will now be streamed to players in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

A spokesperson said: “The user interface will guide players in what bets you can place and even show potential winnings for your bets. Playing FanDuel Live Dealer Games is a great opportunity to learn the game in a more controlled environment, and for the experienced player, the game offers a less crowded and more relaxed gaming experience.”

In further news, FanDuel have also announced the promotions of Christian Genetski to President and Mike Raffensperger to the newly created position of Chief Commercial Officer. Both have enjoyed successful careers to date with FanDuel through its rapid evolutionary period.

Genetski, previously Chief Legal Officer, now will oversee all of the company’s business development, partnership, corporate strategy and government affairs units, and will also be responsible for driving FanDuel’s vision and execution of strategic partnerships and new business initiatives.

Raffensperger, previously Chief Marketing Officer, will be responsible for revenue generation across the group’s sportsbook, casino, racing, daily fantasy and free-to-play platforms, and will also oversee FanDuel’s content and programming assets.
