Galaxy Gaming Deal Likely Bringing New Games To West Virginia Online Casinos

Written By Corey Sharp on September 12, 2023
Galaxy Gaming is set to debut new games in North America and potentially at WV online casinos.

Live dealer games across states with legal online casinos have been a hit. Galaxy Gaming is debuting a new array of live dealer games after inking a deal with Konquer, an online game developer.

West Virginia online casinos are likely to see new and exciting games in the live dealer space soon.

Galaxy Gaming adding fresh live dealer games to WV online casinos

Galaxy Gaming’s deal with Konquer would bring live dealer games to online casinos in North America, including the West Virginia market.

Some of Galaxy Gaming’s most popular games include:

  • Daredevil Poker
  • Emperor’s Challenge Exposed
  • High Card Flush
  • High Hand Blackjack

Todd Cravens, Galaxy Gaming’s president and CEO, said in a statement:

“We’re delighted to see some of our most exciting titles and progressives be developed for the North American iGaming market by the Konquer team. This is the first time Daredevil, Emperor’s Challenge Exposed, and High Card Flush will be live online, and we can’t wait to engage and delight players with this proven content.”

Konquer CEO, Ashford Kneitel, is one of the architects behind many of DraftKings Casino’s WV games. He spoke highly of Galaxy Gaming’s portfolio of options:

“Galaxy Gaming has some of the most valuable games in casinos worldwide. We’re honored they trusted us to bring them online.”

Galaxy Gaming is already partnered with Evolution

Galaxy Gaming got ahead by forming a partnership in May with Evolution Gaming, who powers live dealer games.

Cravens commented on his vision for live dealer games after the announcement:

“Extending our pre-existing and long-standing partnership with Evolution aligns with our focus to deliver the best table game content to everyone, everywhere. Evolution continues to develop a robust catalogue of top-performing and innovative online titles. We are delighted to continue to be a part of this impressive live casino product portfolio and thrill their players with our world-famous games.”

Evolution Gaming works with most of the big operators in West Virginia, including:

  • BetMGM
  • BetRivers
  • FanDuel
  • DraftKings
  • Caesars

Though slot play makes up the majority of online casino revenue, there’s still a large appetite for live dealer games. So much so, President of Caesars Sports and Online Gaming, Eric Hession, said during Caesars’ Q2 earnings call that live dealer games are still going to be a “major part of the business” for the operator.

“The standalone app is going to have a higher percentage of slot business than table, but it’s still going to have live dealer and the overall table games. We do expect that live dealer product to be a sizable percentage.”

Operators and gaming providers have been so good at adding content over the years. Including new live dealer games for players is only going to help grow online casinos, especially in West Virginia.
