Evolution ( 20)

Evolution Gaming is among the best providers of live dealer solutions in the world, ranking high on seemingly every list. They are consistently named Live Casino Supplier of the Year by the high-profile EGR award, since 2009 and every year thereafter. Their studios in Latvia (Riga) are the Europe’s biggest single-site casino facility, with over 100 live tables at the studio premises.

The developer holds the licenses issued by Alderney Gambling Control Commission, Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Besides, the company is certified by AAMS (Italy), DGA (Denmark) and DGOJ (Spain), and accredited in compliance with ISO 27001:2013.

Range of live dealer games

Evolution Gaming works at the leading edge of technological development and tries to overcome the competition by rolling out new game variants and updating the existing ones. They currently offer over 30 different live games, including (but not limited to) European Roulette with several local variations (Venezia Roulette, Svensk Roulette and Deutsches Roulette), French Roulette, Immersive Roulette, Double Ball Roulette, Live Blackjack, Blackjack Party, Live Baccarat and Live Casino Hold’em.

Key features of the Evolution Gaming platform

  • the live games have an excellent HD-quality of the video stream. The lightning-fast Internet is still a problem in many locations but players are given the option to trade the smoother play for a lower video resolution. The sound is also great, with several control options available
  • dealers are all professional because they have to attend obligatory two-week training courses before being admitted to work with real users. Dealers speak the language that is relevant to the market; for example, in Deutsches Roulette the dealer speaks German and in Venezia Roulette he or she speaks Italian
  • blackjack has the 21+3 and Perfect Pairs side bets that are placed optionally alongside main bets. Besides, blackjack offers the Bet Behind feature enabling players to make a bet behind other players.
  • most games have the Favorite & Special Bets feature for saving up to 15 frequently used bets
  • the game statistics (hot/cold number chart, winning numbers, etc) on the roulette map are based on up to 500 recent wheel spins
  • the platform allows a multigame play, meaning that a player can join one or more live games, while still sitting at currently active tables
  • the interface language is English by default and it cannot be changed by a user. The interface in localized variations of live games replicates the language of a given country (French, Russian, Dutch, Turkish, etc)
  • house rules are easily accessible from within the game

Drawbacks in the platform

  • US players are not accepted
  • having many features and the HD stream, the games usually require a high-speed Internet connection
  • there is a flip side of popularity: since any given table is usually visited by hundreds of players at a time, which is especially the case for well-liked casinos, the dealer is unable to reply to all incoming messages that may be sent by players via the chat

Mobile compatibility

There seems to be no problem for playing Evolution Gaming live games on smartphones or tablets of almost any make and model. The developer claims to be fully compatible with all generations of iPad and iPhone, and most Android-based devices. Nearly all desktop games produced by Evolution Gaming have their equivalent mobile versions played via browser.
