BCLC Welcomes Evolution Gaming with Casino Deal

Renowned live casino games supplier, Evolution Gaming has sealed a deal with the BCLC. Local players will have access to 10 live tables at Playnow.com

Live casino games software specialist, Evolution Gaming has tipped its hat at the city of Vancouver, choosing the coastal metropolis as the location of the first-ever live casino studio outside of Europe. In addition to providing real-time streaming of blackjack, baccarat and roulette to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s (BCLC) flagship online gambling destination, Playnow.com, the facility is expected to create hundreds of jobs.

Live Casino Games for the Online & Mobile Platforms

The five-year deal, which has only recently been announced, offers Canadians first-hand experience of live gambling on the online and mobile platforms. Locals can now enjoy the thrill of betting and winning on classic casino games, as and when they are happening, in their own homes and on the go.

The B2B live gaming suppliers are planning to expand the real-time streaming services of the Vancouver studio to state-run online gambling sites in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and the Atlantic Provinces. The plan is to offer both shared and dedicated tables for desktop, tablet and mobile phone.

About Evolution Gaming

Evolution Gaming is the undisputed pioneer of live gaming. Its gambling products are renowned for innovation and functionality across all platforms. The 16,000 square foot Vancouver facility is the eighth of its kind and joins Evolution branded production studios in Latvia and Malta.

A suite of traditional table games include the staples mentioned above, plus live versions of Casino Hold’em, Three Card Poker, Caribbean Stud and Texas Hold’em. For those who enjoy a fast and furious challenge at the tables, a multi-game feature allows players to open up to four live games in a single master window... and play them simultaneously.

Vancouver Studio to Launch with 10 Live Tables

In addition to the conventional table games, there are unique and exciting variations that will hopefully be streamed directly from the Vancouver address in the not too distant future. As the deal between the BCLC and Evolution Gaming stands, the studio will launch with 10 live tables offering just roulette, blackjack and baccarat, all of which will be managed by attractive live dealers.

Multi-table Views and Rich Features for an Enhanced Live Gambling Experience 

Players can enjoy multi-table views and a flurry of rich game features that include hot and cold bets, a favourite bets menu, game history, statistics and a saved bet feature in live roulette. Blackjack buffs have value-added features such as precision bets, side bets and the bet behind option to up the ante.

Live Chat Functionality

Live chat functionality enables direct communication between remote players and the dealers in real time. Canadians in far-flung rural areas who are feeling snowed-in and lonely will soon be able to enjoy a quick visit to the live casino at the gambling destination of choice for a fair bit of social networking!

Independent Casino Software Reviews Appear Positive

Online resources directed at the Canadian market, such as the www.grizzlygambling.com GrizzlyG Canadian online casino review site en provide independent reviews of the Evolution Gaming software. Registered players at Playnow.com and other state-run sites can find the pros and cons of playing the live casino games.

A general consensus regarding the Evolution Gaming casino software appears to be overwhelmingly positive. With the action soon to be provided by home-grown talent, the experience is tipped to be even more enjoyable and interactive.

Deal Makers Upbeat

We’re not the only folk getting excited about the deal. According to CEO of Evolution Gaming, Martin Carlesund, it’s “a huge breakthrough, outside of our European operations and consolidates Evolution’s position as a global leader in the B2B Live Casino market.”

Vice president of eGaming at the BCLC confessed she was delighted at the prospect of the arrangement boosting the existing gambling offering. If all goes to plan, the deal will generate 170 new job opportunities, many of which are expected to be filled by Vancouver residents.
