Editor's note: this software provider's full name was Evolution Gaming prior to October 2020.
Evolution is one of the leading software providers specializing in video streaming of live casino games. The company was founded in 2006 and managed to instantly revolutionize the live casino concept by launching its own platform. From that moment on every online casino operator wanted to have a live casino platform.
Today Evolution is dedicated to deliver the best possible live gaming experience by streaming live casino games directly to your desktop, Smartphone or tablet. The company is certified as a leading live casino provider in several European countries, such as Italy, Spain and Denmark. The company also holds licenses and certificates in Malta, Alderney, United Kingdom, Belgium, Romania and Canada. “Thinking globally, leading locally“ is Evolution’s motto, so it’s no surprise that the supplier always cooperates with operators and local regulators to provide 100% compliant, localised solutions.
The brand has been crowned with awards since 2010 almost every year. In 2017, Evolution was named ‘EGR Live Casino Supplier of the Year’ 8th year in a row. In 2018, the company was showered with recognitions, from the ‘Casino Content Supplier of the Year’ at EGR Nordics Awards and the 'Best In-Casino Streaming Live Dealer Provider' at the Live Gaming Summit in Barcelona to the double victory at EGR B2B Awards – ‘Live Casino Supplier of the Year’ for ninth successive year, and ‘Multi-Channel Supplier of the Year’. They’ve continued with the same trend in 2019, winning ‘Casino Content Supplier of the Year’ at the EGR Nordics Awards, ‘Online Casino Supplier of the Year’ at the Global Gaming Awards London and ‘Live Casino Supplier of the Year’ for the tenth year running at the EGR B2B Awards.
Details About Evolution’s Live Casino Platform
Evolution has all the standard live dealer games, including live Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette, plus Three Card Poker, Mini Roulette, Casino Hold’em and much more. Players are offered online interactive gaming experience very similar to playing in land-based casinos, only here you can play up to 4 different tables all in a single window. The live Blackjack table has even side bets like Perfect Pairs and 21+3. Recently, the supplier added a set of newly developed solutions which have elevated the portfolio even more.
Developing functional, high-quality studios with great design and employing capable, educated and friendly dealers is something that every live casino supplier is trying to achieve. The one with the most success thus far has certainly been Evolution. This provider counts on multiple top-botch studios from which the games are streamed around the clock, and the business only improving. The company started with a state-of-the-art TV production set of studios in Riga, Latvia. The vicinities expanded soon onto 2,000+ square metres of space to support the demand for dedicated tables and bespoke environments for specific operators. The Riga studios became the largest single-site casino operation in Europe in 2013, hosting 100+ tables.
The Ruleta En Vivo service (Live Roulette in Spanish) is streaming live from a licensed land-based casino in Murcia, whereas a second studio complex opened in Malta in 2014. The next year, the company acquired a studio at Casino de Spa in Belgium, and soon it launched its Aalst studio.
Finally, Evolution built a production hub in Tbilisi, Georgia, and one in the New Westminster area of British Columbia, Canada in 2018. That same year, Evolution became the first live casino developer to open a studio in the USA, (in Atlantic City, New Jersey).
Live dealer blackjack games produced by Evolution are often described as slick, fast and rich in features. The developer keeps the core game intact most of the time and then adds entertaining, beneficial features on top of that mountain of pure casino fun. The tables are 7-seat ordeals, but the bet behind feature is usually available so that an unlimited number of players can enjoy the game simultaneously.
Some of the most popular products are Blackjack Party, a low-stakes, party-style variant with an attractive and animated duo of a dealer and a co-presenter/hostess, then Infinite Blackjack with massive multi-player scalability, four optional side bets and he Six Card Charlie rule, and also Free Bet Blackjack, the newest addition to the portfolio with automatic Free Double Down and Split Bets on qualifying hands.
Live roulette by Evolution is arguably the game that ‘suffered’ the most innovation over the years. From Live Roulette, even Dual Play Roulette, to Immersive Roulette, Live Double Ball Roulette and Lightning Roulette, fans of this longstanding parlour casino game are in for something special whichever variant they chose. Roulette games in Evolution’s live dealer arrangement offer chat, game history, statistics, Hot and Cold numbers, a personalised Favourite Bets menu, full-screen HD video and more.
The live baccarat lobby boasts several available options, each aiming to bring the Macau-like gaming experience straight to your device screen. Evolution offers classic Live Baccarat, Multi-Camera Baccarat, Live Baccarat Squeeze and Live Baccarat Control Squeeze. Entering one of these games, players can take pleasure in feature-rich gameplay improved by a big choice of roads and optional side bets such as Player Bonus, Banker Bonus, Either Pair and Perfect Pairs.
Only a few live casino software developers can boast a notable poker games selection; most are lucky to have one poker game in their portfolios. Evolution has more than one, and they are of top-quality, very innovative, attractive and mobile-optimised. Live Casino Hold’em is a must, and it comes with a Bonus Bet and a Progressive Jumbo 7 Jackpot side bet. Apart from this much-loved five-card Texas Hold’em poker game, Evolution streams 2 Hand Casino Hold’em, Live Caribbean Stud Poker, Live Three Card Poker, Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em and, since recently, Side Bet City (a 1985 Las Vegas-themed poker room).
Other Live Games
While expanding on existing game genres, Evolution simultaneously works on introducing new types of games into the library. The foundation was Live Dream Catcher; after this game proved to be a great success the supplier launched products such as Monopoly Live (also a wheel of fortune game, with a Monopoly theme), Deal or No Deal Live (a game show with rewards), Live Dragon Tiger (similar to live baccarat), Lightning Dice (an extravagant game of dice with a live dealer and pompous scenography) and Football Studio (card game combined with live football fixtures).
Evolution is very open to the idea of getting closer to the customers by offering them service in their native language. In fact, the company hosts the majority of its many native speaking dealer tables in the Malta studios, offering London Roulette, Venezia Roulette, Svensk Roulette and Deutsches Roulette. Casinos are allowed to make requests for Evolution to provide native dealers for selected tables, for example Danish Blackjack at Leo Vegas or Russian Blackjack.
