Evolution software is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority, Alderney Gambling Control Commission, UK Gambling Commission, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, Division of Gaming Enforcement of the State of New Jersey (USA), KansspelCommissie (Belgium Gaming Commission), Romania National Gambling Office, Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (British Columbia, Canada), The Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection of Latvia, ADM (L’AgenziadelleDogane e deiMonopoli) and DGOJ (Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego).
With such a strong vote of confidence from the world’s leading gambling bodies, no wonder the top online casinos have chosen Evolution as a gaming service provider.
To clear up any confusion, Evolution is a software provider exclusively dedicated to live casino solutions. This means you will find no slots or any other type of RNG games in this company’s portfolio. Their production is based on live streaming and studio table games, with exceptions inspired by game shows and TV programs. It can be broken down to live casino studio games, land-based live casino, mobile live casino and live casino for television. To specify which games are featured in the Evolution software suite, you can expect everything from roulette, blackjack, and baccarat to poker, games in the wheel of fortune format, craps, Sic Bo and a range of exclusive, completely unique games that enrich the portfolio and provide fresh experiences for live casino players around the globe.
Like we’ve explained before, Evolution does not manufacture RNG table games like the ones you may be used to from other providers. Completely dedicated to the live casino sector, Evolution came the closest to a virtual RNG solution perhaps with its Auto Roulette game. Slingshot Auto Roulette does not come with a live dealer. Instead, a fully automated, precision roulette wheel delivers 60 to 80 games per hour, around the clock.
The First Person series includes games like First Person Roulette, First Person Blackjack, First Person Lightning Roulette, First Person Dream Catcher and First Person Mega Ball, and all of these are built around 3D rendering and animation with RNG software running the show until the player decides to click on GO LIVE and switch to a corresponding live dealer game via an in-game portal.
So far, progressive jackpots have been attached to Live Casino Hold’em, Live Caribbean Stud Poker and Live Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker developed by Evolution Gaming. Casino Hold’em Jumbo 7 Jackpot was initially funded by the developer with a sum of one million euros. Now, this is the world’s biggest online live casino progressive jackpot. Live Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker comes with its own unique ‘First Five’ Progressive Jackpot, whereas the Live Caribbean Stud Poker is won with a Royal Flush and has the potential to reach into the millions.
The time when Evolution was good only for roulette, blackjack and traditional casino poker are long gone. So far, the leading live dealer provider has produced various games with refreshing concepts and unusual studio environment. There’s Football Studio, a game that started the Top Card series, but the production is heavily marked with several products inspired by game shows, namely, Deal or no Deal Live, Mega Ball and Live Dream Catcher, followed by the unusual Lightning Roulette and Lightning Dice.
Live Football Studio is a combination of a simple two-card game and live match commentary, seasoned with chat and goal celebrations focused on actual live football fixtures. Other games we’ve mentioned have their own stories, but also two things in common – multipliers (huge ones, up to 1,000x the bet in Lightning Dice) and excellent, entertaining hosts.
We should also mention Deal or No Deal. The highly popular Evolution live dealer title based on an even more popular TV show.
While suppliers such as Playtech have live casino games as a side project, Evolution is fully committed to producing revolutionary live dealer products. What’s great about Evolution’s approach is that they manage to succeed on two battlefronts – traditional games and their variations vs. completely new formats and unique concepts. In other words, Evolution is equally good at producing different versions of classic blackjack or roulette and games like Football Studio or Side Bet City.
The contribution Evolution has made to the live casino industry is enormous. The company has single-handedly put live dealer gaming on the map and managed to become a force to be reckoned with in this department. Nowadays, one can’t imagine a highly-rated live casino without Evolution-powered Lightning Roulette, Infinite Blackjack, Live Dream Catcher, Live Baccarat Squeeze and many other titles. The latest to join the collection is Live Craps.
Another thing that perhaps we haven’t addresses much, which sets the company apart from the majority of live dealer providers, is the exquisite studio design. Evolution’s studios, which are located in Latvia, Malta and Canada all have a very professional look and sport a stunning style, while the hosts and hostesses working there look act and look like professionals. You as a player are greeted with anintuitive interface which allows you to place your bets at appropriate moments in the game, a process automated by the software, while the dealers assist you with the outcome of a roulette spin or dealing the cards. The interface is not cluttered, yet, you can find plenty of useful tools, including the bet limits, customization settings, and additional information quite fast.
Evolution holds the following awards, among others:
Evolution is a true trend-setter in the world of internet gaming. The company has managed to develop exclusive offers for online casino establishments, catering to the needs of both operators and customers. The company is leaving a global footprint with their live studios in different locations and their trained, skilled dealers and hosts who often speak several languages and satisfy the need for native tables. When Evolution appeared at ICE 2020, they announced 12 new titles. What does this tell us? These guys are unstoppable. There are about to launch Crazy Time, a game based on Dream Catcher but described as “the craziest, most fun game yet”. Stick around, because Evolution Gaming has a lot more to give, even though they’ve already painted the landscape of the live casino industry as we know it.
