Evolution AB hires 400 people in CT for new online gaming service


A Swedish company that provides live casino games for online betting sites has opened a new studio in Fairfield that has already hired 140 workers and plans to add 260 more, Governor Ned Lamont said Monday.

Evolution AB began operating in the state at 11 a.m. Monday, offering live dealer games at FanDuel and DraftKings online casino platforms offered in Connecticut.

For the next week, Evolution will operate in a soft launch format, with only blackjack and roulette tables available to a limited number of participants. Evolution will fully launch its services on July 18, pending resolution of any issues discovered during the soft launch.

The jobs the company is hiring for in Connecticut include technical, production, administrative and information technology positions, as well as security, according to Lamont.

“Connecticut has proven to be a leader in the gambling economy for decades,” he said. “This expansion allows those who wish to participate to continue to do so, in a responsible way.”

David Bednarz, a spokesperson for Lamont, said state and company officials are not saying the location of Evolution’s base of operations in Fairfield due to security concerns for the facility. . City officials did not respond to inquiries about the new venture made by Hearst Connecticut Media on Monday.

The state’s Department of Consumer Protection will monitor the soft launch to ensure Evolution’s games comply with state online gambling regulations. Connecticut law requires Evolution to operate a facility in the state in order to offer live dealer gaming on Connecticut gaming platforms.
