Evolution Gaming win the EGR Live Casino Supplier award for the 7th time.

Evolution Gaming EGR Winners

Evolution were once again named EGR Live Casino Supplier of the Year at the annual EGR B2B Awards held at the Tower of London Pavilion on Wednesday 1 June 2016.

They beat the other shortlisted contenders Extreme Live Gaming, Ezugi, Medialive Casino, NetEnt and Playtech, to win the award for the 7th time.

The award was presented to Evolution Gaming Chief Commercial Officer Sebastian Johannisson by the compere for the evening, comedian Simon Evans.

Speaking later during the evening Johannisson said:

“For Evolution and its staff this is a fantastic way to round off another landmark 12 months. During this period we have opened two further Live Casino studios, both in Belgium; we have won significant new business, not least from world leaders such as Genting and Micrograming; we have launched a host of new games including our all-new Baccarat offering and flagship Live Baccarat Squeeze; and we have listed the company on Nasdaq First North Premier in Stockholm.”

Johannisson continued:

“These successes were followed in April by our 10th Anniversary celebrations — and now a seventh win on the bounce in the EGR awards has made 2016 an extra-special year for Evolution.”

Reflecting on Evolution’s remarkable unbroken run of wins, he commented:

“We work very hard indeed to achieve sustainable commercial advantage for our licensees. We know that the results we have achieved for our licensees, as do they, — and the innovations we have introduced on their behalf — have been major factors in us winning this award in every single year since the awards were established. We know also that it takes a great deal to retain such an award. There are a growing number of Live Casino providers who are pushing forward aggressively, but that simply drives us on. We have a lot of exciting developments that will be revealed in the year ahead, which we believe will further reinforce our leadership position in the Live sector.”

I was very impressed when I visited the Evolution Studios in Malta in the early part of 2016 and I predicted then that Evolution would kick on and continue to be the pace setter in Live Casino in Europe.

The roll out of the new lobby, the switch to full screen HD for the games and the arrival of new games like Double Ball Roulette show that Evolution are not hanging around and are keeping their promises of pushing forward the development of Live Casino.

It will be interesting to see how their competitors and peers respond during the next 12 months.

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

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?
