Standout Live Games Features
Evolution Gaming has created a robust live casino platform that stands out with a host of interesting features to enhance players’ gaming experience. Some of them are specific to certain types of live games while others are available across the entire platform. For instance, statistics on hot and cold numbers are inherent to Evolution Gaming’s roulette tables while the Bet Behind and Pre-Decision features are supported at the blackjack tables.
Mobile Gaming Suite
Evolution Gaming provides a selection of live tables that are fully optimized for play on the go. Players can engage in world-leading live casino games not only on their laptops and desktop computers but across all tablets and smartphones that run on the iOS and Android operating systems.
The mobile gaming suite launched in 2012 and gradually expanded with the addition of new tables throughout the years. The mobile games are developed in the HTML5 language, meaning you can play them directly in the browser of your portable devices.
Many live casinos that work in partnership with Evolution Gaming also offer native apps you can install on your smartphone. As for the supported portable devices, these include all generations of iPad, iPad Mini, and iPad Air, all generations of iPhone, all Android tablets (including Sony, Google Nexus, and Samsung), and all Android-based smartphones (including the likes of LG, Sony, Huawei, Samsung Galaxy, Xiaomi, Google Nexus, and HTC).
All mobile live games are beautifully rendered and work seamlessly on each specific device and its corresponding operating system. You can switch between devices with great ease since the mobile games feature the familiar desktop user interface. Of course, you need a decent enough connection on the go to enjoy your playing experience to the fullest.
Live Roulette Selection
Evolution Gaming’s catalog features a selection of live roulette tables that is impressive in terms of sheer size. The roulette action is streamed live from the company’s studios in New Jersey, Vancouver, Bucharest, Malta, Riga, and Georgia’s capital Tbilisi. The games are hosted in a huge variety of native languages to the benefit of non-English speakers.
The user interface is largely uniform across all live roulette games so you will experience no difficulties when switching from one table to the next. The different settings and environments cater to a huge array of player preferences.
There are also in-casino streams from the roulette tables of some of the world’s biggest landbased gaming venues. Tables are available in all three popular formats - American, French, and European.
Live Blackjack Games
The selection of live blackjack games is just as massive, with some Evolution Gaming licensees offering over fifty tables, sometimes even more. The tables under the Blackjack tab in the lobby are categorized based on minimum limits (usually $0.50, $50, and $100+). This allows players to easily identify the games that fit their gambling budget.
The stream, delivery, and the overall feel of the games are all superb while the user interface is again uniform across all blackjack tables. Most of the tables can cater to no more than seven seated players at a time, with the option to bet behind others. Other games like Live Infinite Blackjack allow an unlimited number of players to join the action simultaneously.
Live Baccarat Suite
Evolution Gaming also supplies a wide range of live baccarat games, with some live dealer casinos offering branded tables. Players can switch between Classic and 3D view, with most of the tables utilizing eight full packs, dealt out of a manual shoe.
Players have a choice from multiple camera angles for a more realistic experience that captures the live action down to the smallest detail. The games are conducted mostly by attractive female dealers seated at polished bean-shaped tables.
Live Casino-Banked Poker
Evolution Gaming has launched a rich selection of casino-banked poker games whose main distinctive trait is that you play against the house rather than competing with fellow players. Some Evolution Gaming-powered casinos have integrated progressive side bets into their live poker tables, giving you the chance to compete for mouth-watering amounts of money. Below, we describe briefly the four most notable live poker games by Evolution Gaming.
Live Dice Games and Game Shows
Apart from offering conventional table games, Evolution also boasts a host of refreshing releases that use elements of world-renowned game shoes and board games. Dice fans are catered to with a couple of unique offerings in the form of Sic Bo and Lightning Dice.
