Evolution Gaming is without a doubt a market leader when it comes to live casino games software. After introducing a number of new live casino games in 2017 like Live Ultimate Texas Holde’m and Live Dream Catcher, the company has announced even more new live casinos games that will be launched in 2018.
Last week we visited ICE Totally Gaming in London, a gaming event that truly brings together the international online and offline gaming sectors.
New Live Casino Games to be launched in 2018 by Evolution Gaming
Evolution Gaming made a few exciting announcements at ICE about the new live casino products that they will be launching in 2018 which include:
- A new Live Roulette Table called Lightning Roulette with random multipliers
- FPG Roulette game, the first ever Evolution RNG Roulette Game
- A Salon Prive Area for Super VIP players with Roulette and Blackjack tables
- The introduction of a No Commission Baccarat table
- Dragon/Tiger Game
New Live Casino Game:Lightning Roulette
From all the above new live casino tables/games, the one that really stands out for us is the Lightning Roulette. This is mainly because the presentation of the game is so much different and the multipliers are making it different compared to usual live roulette tables.
This live roulette game works the same way as any roulette game with the difference that in every spin there are very game round also 1–5 randomly generated lucky numbers. Better still, randomly generated lucky payouts of between 50:1 and 500:1 are paid for Straight Up bets placed on each round’s lucky numbers!
The compromise that players will have to make is that instead of 35 to 1 for straight up bets, winners are getting paid 30 to 1, however, the multipliers definitely make up for it.
Lightning Roulette is in Beta at the moment and will be launched across most Evolution’s network at the end of March.
From the other new products the FPG Roulette is the first ever RNG product with a feature called First Person Gaming, which makes it 3D and more immersive compared to traditional RNG table games.
The game has also a special ‘Go LIVE’ button that transports players directly to an Evolution Live Casino game with the same UI and rules.
While all the rest of the new products by Evolution Gaming are also exciting additions, these are nothing new to the industry as other providers already offer them.
We spoke with Christopher Smith, Evolution’s Gaming Key Account Manager about the new Lightning Roulette, the RNG Roulette Game, their live poker progressive jackpots and upcoming new live poker variants as well as more new games including Dragon Tiger and Live Sic Bo!
Can you tell us a bit more about Lightning Roulette
The two main products that we announced this year is the RNG roulette, our first RNG game and Lightning roulette, the first live roulette game including multipliers.
Lightning roulette is in Beta at the moment and is going to be launched by the end of March across most of our network.
We saw a great success with our Dream Catcher, part of the success was the attraction of the multipliers, that’s why we applied it to Lightning Roulette and expect to have similar kind of success with it. We are quite proud of how it looks.
Evolution Gaming seems to have a full portfolio with live poker games with some of them having Jackpots now. What are the plans for live poker games moving forward.
Yes we have a few live poker games with progressive Jackpots at the moment the only live casino games with Progressive Jackpots.
Caribbean stud poker progressive jackpot, Casino holdem Progressive Jackpot which is a 7 card Progressive Jackpot and is over 1 Million euros at the moment. We also have Texas Holdem Bonus rolling out now out now to our network with a Progressive Jackpot on first 5 cards.
Are there any other new products that will be launching later this year
There are going to be a few Asian focused games that we are going to be bringing out.
Sic Bo will be coming out by end of this year. Dragon Tiger coming out soon in Q1. We believe that Dragon Tiger is the most beautiful Dragon Tiger out there. These are to help facilitate the growth in the Asian market.
We have other plans to bring out more games with partners, more poker games, more poker variants. Cant really talk too much about that at the moment but we are constantly developing and making sure we are pushing forward for new games.
