Evolution Live Casino Software

evo-logoEvolution Software was established in 2006 and have won a number of industry awards for the development of their online live casino hardware and software solutions.

They develop a range of software and hardware solutions that enable Live Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat (with Live Baccarat Squeeze), Live Casino Hold’em, Live 3 Card Poker, Live Caribbean Stud Poker & Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Ultimate Texas Holdem Bonus Poker and Dream Catcher money wheel to be streamed over the internet.

They can also provide online casinos with a wide range of services to support the operation of the live casino, which gives a prospective customer the opportunity to pick exactly the right mix when designing their live casino offering.

It’s not my intention in this article to do a sales pitch for Evolution Gaming.

They are however one of my favourite Live Casino operators and you’ll see that in my live casino reviews. I’m happy to recommend their product from a players perspective.

What I’ve done is to explain the options that are available to the online casino, which in turn will explain why you are unlikely to see exactly the same deployment of the Evolution live casino software across multiple online casinos.

I guess it’s up to us to judge whether the casinos have chosen wisely.

If you’re just interested in data the grid below summarises the options that each of the online casinos I’ve reviewed has chosen.

The reviews are worth reading, just to see how I think the casinos have performed. The play now button will take you directly to the casino, so you can sign up and see for yourself how the Evolution live casino has been deployed.

If you’re interested in reading more you should check out my trip reports of when I visited the Live Casino Studios in Malta in 2016 and the Live Casino Studio in Riga in 2017.

The options

As I mentioned above, online casinos are able to mix and match individual components to create exactly the right gaming experience for their brand. I’ve summarised the most important ones below which will give you a bit of an insight of where an online casino can spend their budget on creating a live casino.

So the options are:Evolution Live Casino Studio

  • Generic Live tables

    This is the entry level solution where casinos share the live casino environment with each other. The dealing studio is located in Riga, Latvia and has centralised monitoring, shared dealers and infrastructure. The casino is able to customise the live lobby and betting limits.

  • Dedicated tables and environments

    This allows the casino to personalise the customisation of tables, cards, staff attire, backdrops and availability hours with the added attraction of having native speaking dealers.

  • Streaming of live games

    From either a purpose built Live Casino Studio or from within a land-based casino. An online casino can host its own dealing studio from within their own land based casino. They might do this if they are in a country where there are restrictions for online gaming.

  • Specialised Spanish Live roulette

    A solution is available from a purpose-built Live Studio at Casino Rincon de Pepe, which is located in Murcia, Spain. This is a specialised solution for Spanish speaking countries that are heavily regulated.

  • Inter-resort Live Casino

    This is a solution that enables the streaming of land based casino games within the same resort. This is particularly useful for US based Casino resorts that cannot take advantage of online internet streaming due to in-country restrictions.

  • Mobile Gaming Solutions

    All of the Evolution Live Casino games can be played on mobile devices. No App is required. The interface is slick and the games easy to find.

  • Live Casino on TV

    The streaming of dedicated services onto TV from the live casino studio in Riga.

  • Integration Solutions

    Services that allow for the integration of 3rd party products such as payment wallets and funds transfer solutions.

The Games

The most important bit of any live casino software are the games and the player experience.

Without both, it’s difficult for any provider to make their mark and stand out from the crowd.

Evolution continues to push the boundaries of both the games and playing options and quite honestly they are the currently the Gold Standard in the industry.

The Lobby

All of the games are listed in the lobby and the number of tables displayed under each game is dependent on the package that the casino has taken.

This can include dedicated tables, branded to the casinos’ requirements, multi-language tables and special VIP tables for higher rollers.

Selecting one of the games along the bottom displayed the tables and stakes available to the player.

If you’re interested is seeing what the games look like and what options are available I recommend checking out the best Evolution Gaming Casinos page that holds all the details and images.
