As I exclusively revealed in February 2016, the Hippodrome live casino will be launching it’s own Live Dual Play Roulette table and feed from the casino based in Leicester Square in London.
Announced this morning in a press release.
Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has signed an agreement with London’s Hippodrome Casino that will see the launch of both an online Live Casino service for The Hippodrome itself, and a ‘Live from The Hippodrome’ feed for Evolution’s complete network of licensees.
The Hippodrome’s own Live Casino service will be built around Evolution’s generic live tables, located at Evolution’s Riga studios, and a Dual Play Roulette table to be sited within Lola’s, The Hippodrome’s underground casino.
The Evolution Dual Play Roulette table on the gaming floor in Lola’s will allow online players on desktop, tablet and smartphone to play with players seated at the same Lola’s table. This dual play (or ‘convergence’) capability is enabled by an Evolution state-of-the-art Live Casino camera and sound studio installation around the actual table.
As well as being a focal point of The Hippodrome’s own Live Casino service, the Lola’s Dual Play Roulette table will be made available as a ‘Live from the Hippodrome’ feed to Evolution’s other licensees. This will allow any Evolution licensee’s players to sample the unique atmosphere of Lola’s, which recreates the under-stage Hippodrome live entertainment club of 1900.

Press Release Ends
The Hippodrome Live Casino is already running games from Evolution, having migrated away from the Microgaming Live Casino earlier this year.
I’m interested to see if they will add a dedicated area at the Riga Studio’s as the press release is a bit unclear on this.
This is great news for UK & International players visiting the casino in London. You’ll now be able to play at the table in the casino and then go home and continue playing on the same table.
As mentioned above the Hippodrome Dual Play Roulette table will be located in Lola’s which is the underground casino at the Hippodrome.
It’s a smaller environment than the main gaming floor upstairs. It has a range of card tables offering Blackjack and 3 Card Poker and presently there are three American Roulette tables and one craps table.
I visited the Dragonara Casino when I was in Malta earlier in the year and was able see and play on the very first Dual Play Roulette table that Evolution launched. I’m certainly looking forward to visiting the new table at the Hippodrome.
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?
