I am proud that yet another of the very best minds in our industry has chosen to join the Evolution network.”

Nolimit City co-founder Jonas Tegman went on to add:

“I cannot think of a better match between two companies than between Nolimit City and Evolution, we are fully aligned in terms of people, product, technology and how to get the job done. The slot vertical is under massive change, and we can’t wait to take on the challenge of global expansion together with Evolution, helping out with navigating towards the best slot product offering in the market.”
