Major provider of live casino solutions Evolution Gaming has again headlined casino news with another exciting announcement. The firm has recently announced that it will be creating its first ever gaming studio outside of European borders after inking a deal with the Canadian British Columbia Lottery Corporation.
The new deal between the Canadian lottery association and Evolution is set to provide a brand new, cutting edge live gaming facility to Western Canada, breaking new ground on Canadian soil. Evolution Gaming currently offers seven different live casino gaming studios in its collection, offering players around the world real money baccarat, blackjack, roulette and casino Hold’em through its state of the art internet streaming technology.
Each of the games features a real live dealer who is fully trained to offer casino games just like players would be able to enjoy at land-based casinos. Evolution’s games can also be specially branded to suit each operator that they provide to, with all offerings managed from a central control room that can also provide instant resolution of any issues that may arise during play. Evolution Gaming Group has elaborated on its deal with the British Columbia lottery firm, saying that a 16,000 square foot studio is soon to be erected in the Vancouver area of Canada.
The studio, Evolution says, could be open as soon as the end of 2017. Evolution also mentioned that their very first non-European gaming studio will offer players on both desktop and mobile devices 24 hour live casino gaming opportunities at the PlayNow.com casino platform. The offerings at PlayNow will include an assortment of ten live casino table games in total, ranging from real money blackjack to roulette and poker.
Martin Carlesund, Evolution’s CEO, noted that entering the Canadian live gaming market in collaboration with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation has been a ‘huge breakthrough’ for the company’s operations outside of European borders. Through the new partnership, he said, Evolution will be able to offer a great live casino experience for Canadian players through its state of the art live gaming studio in Vancouver.
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation will also benefit through the use of the live casino studio, Carlesund said. He noted that this latest expansion move from Evolution has assisted in cementing their reputation as a world leader in the field of live casino products, and also highlights the company’s ability to successfully meet the needs of strictly regulated markets. Evolution has noted that its proposed studio in British Columbia could also create in excess of 170 jobs for locals, and will also be designed in order to offer live internet games to other provincial operators throughout Canada.
