Evolution goes live with Janshen-Hahnraths in the Netherlands
The partnership will see Evolution’s live casino, RNG-based games and slot games from its NetEnt and Red Tiger brands offered to Dutch players for the first time.
In addition, Janshen-Hahnraths – which operates the Fair Play Casinos brand of land-based venues – will have access to Evolution’s live games portfolio, including classic games such as roulette and blackjack along with Evolution’s range of live game shows.
“We’re excited to be working with Janshen-Hahnraths Group and extending their Fair Play Casinos’ offering into the new Dutch online gambling market,” said Gavin Hamilton, commercial director at Evolution.
“Our extensive online offering is a great fit for further developing their exciting games portfolio and we look forward to achieving great new things together.”
Janshen-Hahnraths has been established for over 60 years, operating 38 land-based Fair Play casinos in the Netherlands.
“We have been planning for this day for a long time,” said Björn Fuchs, chief digital officer at Janshen-Hahnraths.
“We are absolutely delighted to now offer both existing and new Fair Play customers a fantastic choice of world-class online games. We are sure players will agree that the sheer quality and variety of the online games now available to our players on desktop and mobile at the Fair Play website has been well worth the wait.”
Janshen-Hahnraths is one of 10 operators permitted to launch in the Netherlands, after the country’s igaming market opened on 1 October.
Holland Casino went live last week, after a technical error with the Centraal Register Uitsluiting Kannspelen (CRUKS) caused a delay.
Entain, Kindred, 888, Betsson and LeoVegas, who were not issued igaming licences in the Netherlands, have blocked Dutch customers in a temporary move until they receive their own licences.
