Evolution Launches Live Side Bet City

Side Bet City live casino poker game new from Evolution. Evolution Gaming is at it again, expanding its world-leading live casino platform with yet another innovative new way to place a wager.

Real Online Casinos Pushing the Tech Envelope

Prospects of ambitious charge to implement unique online casino tech. Online gambling is far from a new concept. We’ve had access to internet-based casino games for the last two decades.

The option to play these games in a real-life setting has been available for much, much longer. So long, in fact, that one might think the land-based gambling industry is more attuned to pioneering new gaming technology. But that’s not the case at all. Real Online Casinos Pushing the Tech Envelope Real-money internet casino companies—the ones that develop the games we play online—are doing all the work towards the future of the global gaming space.

BC Online Casino delivers Record Gaming Revenue

Live online casino games contribute to record-breaking annual gambling revenues for BCLC. The British Columbia Lottery Corp (BCLC) has released its latest annual earnings report for the fiscal year ending March 2018.

Net income for the Crown Corporation rose $61.5 million to a record setting $1.4 billion year over year.

Canada’s Favorite Live Casino launches in US Market

Best Canada Live Casino expands south into New Jersey, USA. The live dealer casino market isn’t nearly so competitive as its cousins in electronic gambling. There are hundreds of companies developing game software for online casinos, building interactive, RNG-based slot machines, tables games and more. Contrariwise, only around two dozen brands host live casino studios, streaming genuine table action to desktops, smartphones and tablets all over the world. There are a few logical explanations for why the live casino industry is so much smaller. For the last decade, it’s been more of a niche market, largely due to high-tech demands. It’s also not the type of software online casinos look to employ more than one of. Furthermore, it’s not a very inviting business for entrepreneurs when a single entity has already reached astronomical heights, soaring far beyond the capabilities and popularity of any existing competitor. If you’re familiar with today’s … Continue reading

The Hardest Live Blackjack Games to Get a Seat

Why some live dealer blackjack tables are harder to play than others. Blackjack games don’t come with a great stretch of imaginative rules. Some have side bets or progressive jackpots, but the object of the game never varies. The player’s job is to achieve a hand total closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand, without busting (exceeding 21). Do this and you win. Fail and you lose. It’s that simple. By these basic rules, there’s no single blackjack game that is easier or hard to player than any other. However, if you intend to play live blackjack games on the world’s most popular, multi-award-winning platform, Evolution Gaming, you may find it’s a lot harder to grab a seat at some of their tables than it is others. Live Dealer Blackjack Tables where Seats are Scarce There are two primary blackjack games where players have the hardest time gaining a seat. … Continue reading

Why some prefer House-Banked Texas Hold’em

The Ultimate Showdown: Texas Hold’em Poker -vs- Live Dealer Casino Hold’em Texas Hold’em is, hands down, the most beloved poker game in the world. It brings people together for a battle of mathematical supremacy and psychological warfare. Whether heads-up or in a thousands-strong multi-table tournament, the games can be incredibly lucrative, if you play your cards right. Casino Hold’em is, for all intents and purposes, the same game. However, competition is limited, decisions are much easier to make, and you don’t have to be a savant to outwit your opponent. This game pits player versus dealer in a house banked rivalry that anyone can win. Texas Hold’em Poker vs Live Dealer Casino Hold’em By and far the most significant difference between these two casino games is competition. In Texas Hold’em poker, it’s you versus every other player who stakes a buy-in. Even in a 9-seat SNG, your natural odds are severely … Continue reading

EGR B2B: The 2018 Live Casino Supplier Award goes to….

For the 9th year straight, Evolution Gaming named EGR’s Best Live Casino Supplier of the Year. It’s a fiercely competitive world we live in. In most industries, leading brands come and go like dew on a flower pedal. But not all of them… The online gambling industry is one that sees major brands rising to new heights, and very few ‘little guys’ worming their way into a lucrative, top-tier position. Being a big-wig in this business comes with great responsibility. For Evolution Gaming, that responsibility is to carry a brilliant and admirable crown, lighting the path—leading the way—for all its rivals to follow.

That fact was reaffirmed last night when Evolution once again collected the award for Live Casino Supplier of the Year at the 2018 EGR B2B Awards ceremony at the Hurlingham Club in London, England.

Canada Live Online Casinos by Playtech

Playtech’s Live Casino Online Canada – 15 Years of Authentic Real Time Gambling If you’re a risk taker in Canada live online casinos by Playtech are worth exploring. I’ve been a longtime advocate of Evolution Gaming‘s formidable live dealer platform. In the last year, Playtech’s live studios have evolved into something profound enough to rival the industry’s longtime leader.

Playtech’s Live Casino Online Canada 15 Year in the Making Although it wasn’t anything close to the quality of today’s live casinos, Playtech’s initial live dealer platform sparked a revolution in the iGaming industry.
