US.- FanDuel Group is launching its first live dealer studios in partnership with Evolution. The studios will be based in Michigan and Pennsylvania and will be used to stream live dealer games, including blackjack and roulette, to customers in each state.

FanDuel Group operates FanDuel Casino in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia, while also operating the Stardust brand in New Jersey and Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. It recently appointed Asaf Noifeld as managing director for online casino.

In the newly created role, Noifeld will be responsible for supervising the company’s online casino business. Noifeld worked at Flutter subsidiary PokerStars for eight years as managing director of PokerStars Casino. He also served at 888 Casino in a variety of roles.

A few weeks ago, FanDuel and DC United opened the brick-and-mortar sportsbook at DC United’s Audi Field stadium. It’s the first such facility at a Major League Soccer stadium in the US. However, FanDuel said it has “no timetable” for a mobile sports betting launch in Washington DC.
