Evolution Gaming

Evolution Games are some of the most sought after in the online gambling industry and the company itself is true to its brand identity; it really has proved to be evolutionary and continues to be in how it is able to create its products. Having actually re-branded as Evolution following their merger with fellow software provider NetEnt at the end of 2020, the software provider as an entity still retains the name Evolution Gaming.

Founded in 2006, the company took significant strides in its first decade and was able to evolve in a way that saw it able to stand out considerably among its competitors. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, which has almost become an online gambling ecosystem, players and operators alike get the benefit of the evolutionary and creative minds the company has access to.

It is hard to find an operator site that does not list any Evolution products and, in fact, many players create an account just based on the fact that they can access the software provider's wide portfolio of games.

The strategy that the company has embarked on over the years has clearly had an emphasis on innovation which has seen them produce a wide range of games and slots content that have proven to be particularly popular.

Evolution Gaming Live Casino Games

One area that Evolution has excelled in and are in fact considered to be the undisputed leaders in is the live casino niche. The company essentially changed the face of live casino in 2011 when they essentially set the tone and effectively put their own stamp on how these games should look and feel for the players.

It would be fair to say that the company can be regarded almost as an innovation laboratory and the level and quality of these games that they have developed and released has seen them reach heights unparalleled. The world's best when it comes to live casino products, they also have their own live games that are exclusive to them as a company.

As a result, they have many different versions of these games. For example, you can find 13 different types of live roulette to play including French, European and American, however, innovative formats such as Lightning Roulette which has become the most popular live roulette game in the world. This game, in addition to being visually stunning, players get a fantastic benefit. If they make a 'straight up' bet, between one and five lucky numbers can be struck by lightning which then multiplies the payout from 50x to 500x.

This version has won Product Innovation of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards, G2E Las Vegas, Innovation in Live Casino at the SBC Awards, while it was voted EGR's Game of the Year 2018 by online casinos in the industry.

Players can also find multiple versions of live blackjack, including their landmark offering which is packed full of features that include the optional 21 + 3 as well as the Perfect Pairs side bets, this is another prime example of innovation from Evolution.

With many forms of live baccarat being available, arguably the most popular is the award winning Lightning Baccarat. In this game, players have the opportunity to win huge payouts, thanks to multipliers that range from 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x up to 8x.

Featuring 10 different live poker games Evolution has done well to create a suite of offerings that superbly differentiate from one another. Arguably the most popular is Casino Hold Em, which is an enthralling version of the five card Texas Hold Em poker game. The difference with this though is that players have the ability to place optional bonus bets and this pays out if a pair of Aces is dealt in the first five cards.

Innovative Live Casino Games from Evolution

As well as having creative versions of the traditional casino games that are offered in a live format, Evolution has developed a highly innovative unique selling point which has helped the company to particularly stand out among its rivals. The beauty of this is that these games are exclusive to them and, as a result, many operators count them as part of their offering. Let's take a look at some of these.

Monopoly Live

This was developed in partnership with Hasbro Games and is based on the considerably popular and world-famous board game. It comes with a live dealer, who stands in front of a life-size wheel which is then spun. The aim essentially is for players to predict which segment the wheel pointer is going to stop on, though it is to also unlock the bonus rounds which then take you to a 3D Monopoly board.

Dream Catcher Live

Another innovation that has come from Evolution, this has proved to be a major success. Again, based on a wheel, Dream Catcher Live gives you the chance to place bets on the spin. Throughout the game, the presenter spins the wheel and interacts with the players to keep them informed.

Evolution in the News

Perhaps one of the biggest events of Evolution was their merger with NetEnt to effectively create a superbrand as a software provider to be able to compete with the likes of Microgaming and Playtech. The two entities are Swedish and as a result, the merger made sense, especially when considering the expertise and experience that both companies have in the online gambling industry. Both brands share the same trait of innovation and have proven that they can adapt to limited market conditions and evolve accordingly. While news of such a deal did shock the industry, it only added to the ecosystem in the industry for the better. Additional deals could well follow this as Evolution aims to develop a hard shell that can withstand penetration from industry competitors.
