ICE – Evolution to lift the curtain on Blackjack Party

By - 27 January 2015

Evolution Gaming will be exhibiting several new products at ICE including Blackjack Party, an all-new, low stakes online Live Blackjack.

The new game has unlimited bet behind opportunities, music, a party atmosphere and a chatty TV-style duo of dealer and co-presenter, Evolution Live Blackjack for Mobile and a preview of the imminent Live Baccarat for Mobile and Immersive Roulette Lite, an exciting bespoke variant of Immersive Roulette, Evolution’s Game Of The Year award winner.

The Immersive Roulette Lite development will see customisable, multi-camera view Live Roulette tables – offering an immersive playing experience on desktop, tablet and smartphone – made available as an option for Evolution licensees’ own branded dedicated tables.

With new Live Blackjack and Live Baccarat for Mobile making their debuts at ICE, Evolution’s Mobile Live Casino, meanwhile, is a complete offering in every sense. The company’s Mobile offering now spans multiple Live Roulette variants, Live Blackjack and Live Baccarat on iPad, iPhone and leading Android tablets and smartphones. In addition, Evolution’s ‘access all tables’ Mobile policy means that all live tables for these games are available to play on Mobile not just one or two tables.

Evolution will also showcase its proven, integrated solutions specifically for land-based casinos, including the option to stream live online games from a studio sited within the land-based venue itself.

Helen Hedgeland, Evolution’s UK Managing Director, says that alongside new products at ICE, the multi-award winning B2B provider will “emphasise broader messages such as the scalability and operational excellence of the Evolution Live Casino platform.”

Huge scalability, already present in Evolution’s Live Roulette, Live Casino Hold’em and Live Three Card Poker, is demonstrated by Blackjack Party (a low-stakes Bet Behind game with a bubbly TV-style duo of dealer and co-presenter) and by Evolution’s core Live Blackjack, also now with Bet Behind. In both these Blackjack games, massively scalable Bet Behind functionality offers virtually unlimited ability for potentially hundreds of players to ‘bet behind’ the hottest players in the 7 main seats at each table.

Hedgeland explains that a look behind-the-scenes at Evolution’s Live Casino studios in Latvia and Malta reveals numerous examples of operational excellence:

“Our core Evolution Blackjack game, on which Blackjack Party is based, is the ‘world’s fastest, slickest online Live Blackjack’. That’s made possible by the unique combination of software and live dealer bet-monitoring systems used in our studios. The speed of the game is enlivened still further with ‘Pre-Decision’ betting for players, which cuts out waiting time and boosts the number of games delivered per day for licensees.

Hedgeland also points to the failover systems Evolution has in place. These were put to the test following an explosion at a power station in Malta last August. The incident resulted in a power outage of over seven hours for many of the island’s homes and businesses, yet Evolution’s Malta studio maintained business with “zero interruptions and zero complications. When you consider the 130-plus live tables across our studios, the number of dealers and languages offered, the 24/7 service into multiple markets, the stringent SLAs to which we operate, and the level of customisation and live promotions we offer… it all adds up to a truly world-class, operationally excellent solution for our licensees.”
