Evolution Gaming has come to this years ICE with a bag full of new products and innovations.
A quick run through the Press Release reveals:
While all of these products are new to Evolution, they are actually already available to Live Casino Players at other live casino providers.
Extreme Live Gaming, Authentic Gaming and Media Live all run roulette tables with side bets, and have been for a few years now.
Playtech has had privately booked tables for VIP’s, No Commission Baccarat and Dragon Tiger, also for a number of years. The Private table solution is not as sophisticated as Evolution’s.
What Evolution has done is build on already good products. They have a greater reach than the Playtech solution, which is only available to casinos taking Playtechs others products.
The good thing is a wider range of players will now be able to enjoy a fuller range of games. And what Evolution does really well is the presentation.
I’m looking forward to seeing the games at the ICE conference this week.
Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, is today unveiling a host of new products at ICE 2018 (6–8 February at ExCeL London), including the revolutionary new Lightning Roulette game.
Evolution Lightning Roulette is a unique extended Roulette game that is sure to light up the Live Casino experience for Evolution licensees and their players.
All the usual Roulette bets are there — and much more. In Lightning Roulette, every game round also features 1–5 randomly generated lucky numbers.
Better still, randomly generated lucky payouts of between 50:1 and 500:1 are paid for Straight Up bets placed on each round’s lucky numbers.
The game setting and UI are equally electrifying. Lightning bolts and sound effects add to the tension, setting the scene for a thrilling Live Roulette experience.
According to Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer, Lightning Roulette is
“sure to be the talk of show at ICE. Everyone who has seen it is simply blown away – both players and industry veterans alike. We have worked hard to create a game that players will love and can’t wait for them to start enjoying it”.
Haushalter goes on to say,
“This is the most complex product we have ever done, but all that complexity is hidden from the players, who only see that each round, between one and five numbers are struck by lightning and given magnified pay outs of 50x – 500x.
To do this we combined digital random number generators with the Live Roulette wheel, which has never been done before. The studio itself is also incredibly advanced.”
Evolution will also premier its Salon Privé, which is a collection of Roulette and Blackjack games dedicated to super-VIP players.
Created at the company’s primary studio in Riga, Evolution’s all-new Salon Privé is set to be the most luxurious way to play table games online.
“This has never been done before because it is so difficult to achieve operationally. We are offering players unprecedented levels of control over the game at totally private, single-player Roulette and Blackjack tables.
From choosing their favourite dealer, to changing the cards to being in charge of the game speed, the players can control all of this and more.
Our mission with the Salon Privé is to provide the sort of ‘white glove’ service that is offered in the private gaming salons of Las Vegas.”
Two further new games being showcased at ICE — Dragon Tiger and No Commission Baccarat — are aimed primarily at Baccarat devotees and will extend the appeal of Evolution’s already extensive Live Baccarat range.
Visitors to the Evolution stand can also learn more about the company’s recent new studio launch in Canada and the upcoming Georgia studio launch.
They can also get right up to date with the HTML5 update of the Evolution live games portfolio, which is fast approaching completion.
Summarising the appeal of Evolution’s stand at ICE 2018, Haushalter added:
“We take our market leadership position very seriously and our ICE line-up reflects that.
Our partners expect us to serve their mass market players, high-limit players, even their poker, bingo, and slot customers, and to continually dazzle their players with new and interesting ways to play online.
We worked really hard to deliver all these new products at ICE and adding these to our current portfolio, which includes Dual Play Roulette and Baccarat, 15 different spoken language Roulette games, Dream Catcher, hundreds of Blackjack games, and our exclusive and proprietary Poker games including the latest addition of Live Texas Hold’em Bonus, I think we have a market leading offering for both players and operators.
Come by our stand at ICE and see what the future of Live Casino looks like.”
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?
