16th October 2018 – Evolution Gaming has launched two RNG table games. First person Roulette & First Person Blackjack is the developers first foray into RNG games. I’ve played and reviewed them both. While both have their merits there is room for improvement.
Evolution has launched two First Person RNG games, Blackjack and Roulette.
Evolution First Person RNG Games are exclusively available at Leo Vegas before going on general release later this month.
This is the second time we’ve seen First Person Roulette which was originally launched in early 2018. The game was removed shortly after release as it just wasn’t up to the standard we’ve come to expect from Evolution Gaming.
Roll forward 8 months and we’ve now been treated to a newer version and also Version 1 of First Person Blackjack.
It is virtually the same in every detail, apart of course the live dealer.
It’s a single player Vegas Rules game played with 5 seats.
An 8 deck dealing shoe is used which is reshuffled before each new game round.
You can double your bet on any 2 carded hand and split any pair. Split Aces get one additional card. You can’t double on a split.
The speed of the game is controlled by the player who initiates the game with a Deal Now button.
In terms of Blackjack games this is as close as you’ll get to playing without a live dealer. The obvious difference is the game is not multiplayer and the shoe is shuffled after every game round.
The player interface uses the same features you’ll find in Evolution Live Blackjack.
While playing the view of the table moves depending on your seating position, so you’ll get a realistic view of the dealer position. The cards are clearly displayed, making it easy to see their face values as they are dealt.
I’d really like to be saying that I love these RNG games from Evolution. But in truth I think they are OK and if I’m being really honest, I think more time has been spent on how they look rather than the playability of the games.
The FPG Roulette is the poorer of the two games, with very little focus being made to the player experience. I found myself getting irritated that my chips weren’t not being shown on the betting grid when I used the racetrack. That and the lack of special bets and the opportunity to save favourtite bets to use either within the game or on the live games is a disappointment.
The FPG Blackjack is a better game that is closer to it’s live dealer counterpart.
I had hoped Evolution would have been braver with the playing rules, perhaps allowing doubles on Splits and more than one card on split Aces. But alas it’s not meant to be. It’s a good introduction to Blackjack, but not somewhere I’d chose over Evolution Live Blackjack.
Where to play
The games are both being previewed at Leo Vegas. They have had the games skinned with their branding. This is something I would expect most of the casinos to do if they want the games to stand out from the other RNG games on the market.
I’ve been playing, reviewing and collecting data about online live dealer casinos since 2011. I monitor what’s going on in the industry so I can give the best and most impartial advice. I regularly visit live casino studios around the world, so I know what’s going on behind the cameras!. If you want some information or just want my opinion on something drop me a line using the form below.
Leo Vegas has a great mix of live casinos. Evolution (with dedicated tables), Ezugi, NetEnt, Portomaso, Authentic Gaming & Luckystreak. There’s Live streamed Roulette from land-based casinos in Malta and Gibraltar, Italy Georgia & the USA.
Mr Green live casino has games from 3 providers (Evolution Gaming, NetEnt and Authentic Gaming). With their own dedicated Blackjack and Roulette tables they are one of those casinos that have it all. Specific Live Casino Bonuses and promotions round things off nicely.
Live Roulette focused casino, with Studio and Land Based streamed tables. Lots of foreign language tables and dealers. Plenty of other Live Dealer games and Slots on offer. Great promotions & Good Stake ranges.
BetVictor has a brand new Live Casino Studio and is making the most of it with some nice promotions. The Live Roulette and Blackjack tables offer low and high stakes for all player types. Always been one of my favourite casinos to play at.

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 used to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make logical sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino. Did I have a good time?, are the dealers nice and chatty?, is everything easy to understand?. Does it have a good set of games, is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use, does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and 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 & 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?
