Evolution pens agreement with Loto Quebec to supply its live dealer offering from Vancouver studio
Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has forged a deal with Lotoquebec.com, which became the second online gaming site to operate out of Evolution’s Live Casino production studio in Vancouver, Canada.
Vancouver Operation Ready to Hit the Market
Evolution has entered the agreement to provide the provincial Crown corporation with Live Casino services from its production studio in Vancouver, which opened in early 2018.
Lotoquebec.com will offer six dedicated tables, five of which be hosted by French-speaking presenters, as well as four of the supplier’s existing tables. Quebec is Canada’s second most populated province after Ontario and has more than 8 million people that mainly speak French. This is a huge deal for Evolution regarding the fact that it is the only regulated Live Casino provider in Canada.
James Stern, Evolution’s chief business officer of America and land-based, said the new deal is a breakthrough.
“The service we will be providing to lotoquebec.com underlines the flexibility of our Vancouver studio, and our vast experience in the provision of live casino solutions.”
“Our track record in providing native speaking dealer solutions is a key factor, with lotoquebec.com’s French speaking presenter tables being a key USP when serving the province’s predominantly French speaking population.”
The tables are expected to go live later this month and Lotoquebec.com will become the second operator to utilize Evolution’s Canadian studio.
The first was British Colombia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) that launched in February 2018, and has offered Live Casino to British Columbia and Manitoba since then. The first Live Casino, named Casino en direct in French, will be available on all devices where the provincial Crown corporation already offers online casino games, poker, lottery, sportsbetting and bingo.
Sovanna Phan, online product manager at lotoquebec.com, added: “We’re thrilled to be launching casino en direct. It’s innovative, and a great addition to what we already offer our customers on lotoquebec.com.”
“It fits hand in glove with our click-and-mortar strategy, to engage with customers both online and face-to-face at our casinos.”
Evolution meets all the Lotoquebec’s needs and will expand its Canadian studio to meet projected high demand from Quebec players.
“We selected Evolution because we wanted a partner with the vision, innovation and capability to deliver localised, convergent solutions that will allow lotoquebec.com to deliver live casino in so many ways, to appeal to different players” Phan added.
