mobile live dealer casino games expanding into Swiss and South
African iGaming markets.
As a player in the iGaming community, if you could only choose one
brand of live casino games to access, which one would it be? To
properly answer such a question, you’ll need adequate experience
with various live gambling platforms; a familiarity with different
software programs, studios, dealers, etc. It’s not only the players
who face questions like this, but the online casino operators that
supply games to the general public. And for them, being familiar with
the available brands and popular opinions of potential players is not
a perk, but a requirement.
The countries of Switzerland and South Africa found themselves in
a unique situation recently. These nations have ring-fenced iGaming
markets in which their respective governments run and/or very
strictly regulate the only legal online gambling sites. Therefore,
when operators in these two regions countries decided it was time add
or expand live casino verticals on their existing iGaming menus, both
had to do their research.
In what should come as little surprise (to those of us who are
familiar), they both went down their check lists, both choosing the
same company to supply live casino content within their respective
markets. They both selected…
Evolution’s Desktop & Mobile Live Dealer
There’s no denying the fact that Evolution Gaming is the
industry’s best supplier of live dealer games. I’m not being
biased. It’s not a flippant opinion, but a fact, and there’s more
than enough evidence to prove it. Look at the results of the eGR
B2B Awards. For the last ten years – every year the awards have
been run – Evolution Gaming has been named the Live Casino
Supplier of the Year.
It’s not just a panel of judges who made this decision time and
again, but the players of desktop and mobile live casino games from
all over the world who were involved in the voting process. How do
you deny ten straight years worth of majority favor? You don’t.
Evolution is clearly doing something right, and to this day, none
have been able to mimic, much less surpass, their many qualities.
Swiss Group Partouche Selects Evolution Gaming
Group Partouche, one of Europe’s leading land-based casino groups, is a major player in the Swiss iGaming market. It was Groupe Partouche who chose to employ the live casino platform of Evolution Gaming. According to reports, the live dealer tables should be up and running, accessible to the brand’s players, sometimes in the first half of 2020.
Alexander Sosnovski, CEO of Geneva-based Casino du Lac Meyrin,
describes Evolution as “a strategic partner for us, not only
because they are the leader in live casino games, but also because
they are developing new and exciting technology for online
Evolution CCO Sebastian Johannisson said his company is “delighted
to have been chosen by Groupe Partouche to partner with them and have
our live casino solutions available to their players in the Swiss
market.” He went on to laud their live platform as a perfect for
“Partouche Group’s next generation of casino entertainment
SA Permits Evolution to Serve Local Operators
South Africa’s gaming regulators with the Western Cape Gambling
and Racing Board (WCGRB) came to the same conclusion, choosing
Evolution Gaming as the best supplier of live dealer content in the
region. Their situation is a bit different though. Evolution is not
the first live casino supplier to receive a license in the area. That
honor went to Ezugi, which has been supplying live content to
SA for quite some time.
The interesting fact here is that, in November 2018, Evolution acquired Ezugi. Therefore Evoltuion has, in a way, been catering to the region for more than a year. The extension of the license to include Evolution’s content is being seen as a natural progression – if not a delayed one – In the South African market. But that didn’t seem to bother Evolution Gaming CEO Martin Carlesund, who expressed enthusiasm over the deal in this morning’s press release.
“Thanks in large part to the great experience already gained in
this market by our Ezugi subsidiary, we are entering a really
exciting new vertical in this region,” said Carlesund. “Our
world-leading live dealer solutions, and new live event betting
solutions too, will be available not only on desktop, tablet and
smartphone but also in retail betting shops.”
This latest expansion into Switzerland and South Africa is
improving Evolution’s global footprint once again. The company’s
world-class desktop and mobile live dealer casino games are already
licensed in the European nations of Alderney, Belgium, Latvia, Malta,
Romania, and the UK, the Canadian province of British Columbia, and
the US States of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
