Belgium – Evolution’s Belgium Live Casino attracts A-Licence holdersBy Phil - 12 May 2015
Evolution Gaming, a leading provider of Live Casino solutions, is aiming to dominate the Belgian Live Casino market, having signed agreements with a number of Belgium’s A-Licence holders.
All of the licence holders will stream online Live Casino for Belgium’s regulated online gaming market from Evolution’s new Belgium studio at Casino de Spa.
The new studio, scheduled to go live at the end of the second quarter, will be located in the Pink Ballroom at Casino de Spa, with the live tables visible to customers visiting the historic land-based venue which opened in 1763.
bwin.be, unibet.be, 777.be, Circus.be and starcasino.be are all preparing to stream live dealer Roulette and Blackjack plus Auto Slingshot Roulette from the studio. In addition, Evolution has signed with Gaming1, the market’s principle class B provider, who will stream Auto Slingshot Roulette from the same facility.
All operators will use shared tables at the Casino de Spa studio to stream live games seven days a week. All live tables will be served by native speaking Flemish and French dealers, as stipulated by the Belgian Gaming Commission (BGC), and all games will be available on desktop, tablet and smartphone.
Jens von Bahr, CEO at Evolution Gaming, said: “Once again, Evolution’s investment in regulated markets will give both existing and new licensees a significant competitive edge. This takes our total number of studios to five; and it fits with our strategy of delivering customized streaming solutions to meet the needs of licensees and regulators.”
He added: “As with all of our studios, Casino de Spa will offer state-of-the-art Live Casino broadcast facilities with the support of our robust infrastructure so that licensees can achieve cost-effective market entry. What’s more, there is scope here to create exclusive dedicated environments for licensees who wish to further differentiate their Belgian Live Casino offering in the future.”
Emmanuel Mewissen, CEO of Circus Group and Owner of Casino de Spa, added: “We are delighted to be working with Evolution Gaming, another leader in the gaming sector. We have a track record of innovation at Casino de Spa and to be able to offer a world-class Live Casino from here is very much in keeping with our rich history. Live Casino is a dynamic sector and we look forward to launching the market-leading Live Casino solution for Belgium.”
