Evolution Gaming has signed a deal with Cherry iGaming, the leading Scandinavian online slots provider.
Cherry iGaming, named Online Gaming Operator of the Year at the International Gaming Awards for the past three years, operates a multi-brand strategy.
Their brand roster include Cherrycasino.com, Sunmaker.com, Norgespill.com, EuroLotto.com and many more following the recently announced acquisition of ComeOn!.
Under the terms of the deal, Cherry brands will have access to Evolution’s full range of standard and VIP live games streamed from Evolution’s Latvia studio.
Cherry will also take many of Evolution’s localised Live Casino services for Europe which are native speaking dealer tables streamed from Evolution’s Malta studio.
Cherry iGaming Group Chief Executive Officer, Jonas Wåhlander said:
“Having monitored the exciting growth trends in the Live Casino market we have chosen to partner with the industry’s most innovative and flexible provider to better capitalise on this product category. Evolution’s extensive Live Casino offering with its turnkey generic and localised solutions for Europe enables us to do that very efficiently together with our outstanding in-house knowledge.”
Sebastian Johannisson, Chief Commercial Officer at Evolution, added:
“We are delighted to welcome yet another market leader to Evolution. Integration of Evolution Live Casino into Cherry’s brand portfolio will begin immediately. Going forward, Cherry brands will benefit from unrivaled choice and agility as they deliver the very best Live Casino services to their customers — via our generic and localised services, and, of course, with the option of exclusively branded dedicated tables and environments.”
It’s surprising to still find online casinos that still haven’t got a Live Casino.
I can sort of understand if the casino is focuses purely on slots, but even these sites offer table games.
It’s good to see that someone at Cherry recognises the potential for Live Casino.
Cherry do have NetEnt and Extreme Live Gaming live casinos on some of their brands. The recent acquisition of Comeon! would have given them some insight into how well Evolution live casino performs and maybe part of the reason for this deal.
Either way it’s good news for players at the Cherry Brands.
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?
After all that, would I play there regularly?
