Press Release 8th May 2017
The Evolution Dual Play Roulette table, which brings together land-based and online play, will be located on the casino’s main gaming floor, on the ground floor of the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel. It follows Dual Play Roulette launches in the past 18 months at The Ritz Club London, The Hippodrome Casino London and Malta’s Dragonara Casino.
Evolution Dual Play Roulette embodies land-based and online casino convergence by allowing players at the actual Roulette table in the casino and online players to play alongside each other in the same game rounds, with the same dealer at the same table.
Moreover, the Evolution Dual Play solution offers the land-based casino a high level of bespoke customisation to enable a unique deployment and online player experience. Instead of a single static camera at the table, Evolution Dual Play Roulette allows complete customisation through a choice of the number of cameras, the camera angles and the shot sequences.
Evolution already has a significant presence at the Grand Casino Bucharest, as it is home to Evolution’s own state-of-the-art Live Casino studio serving the Romanian market. The studio, which opened in September 2016 was the first Live Casino studio to be certified in Romania and now supports eight Romanian licence holders, with additional operators due to launch in 2017.
The Grand Casino Dual Play table is due to go live by the end of Q2 2017, and is one of a number of similar bespoke Dual Play deployments in the pipeline over the coming year. It will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will provide online players with a true gaming experience as if they were in the casino themselves. The live games feed from the Dual Play table will be made available to all Evolution licensees allowing the entire network of operators the ability to offer such a unique product to their players.
James Stern, Director of Business Development & Land-based Sales at Evolution, said:
“An increasing number of prestigious venues are selecting an Evolution Dual Play solution to deliver a truly convergent solution, as players get a great deal more than is offered by an ‘off the shelf’ product. Our team always works closely with each individual casino to create a customised, showcase installation, that equally reflects their brand and approach, to offer further differentiation. Streaming numerous live, interchangeable HD quality feeds, each unique Dual Play Roulette encapsulates the real thrill of the action at the live table and offers players the most immersive and engaging experience – just as if they were physically sitting and playing at the actual table.”
Sorin Constantinescu, President of Casino Association Romania, commented:
“The bespoke nature of Evolution Dual Play Roulette gives the Grand Casino great scope to create something different and compelling for players. The Dual Play table will bring the unique atmosphere and excitement of the Grand Casino to an extended online audience of new players and is further evidence of the market’s move to support online gaming.”
Press Release ends
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?
