Evolution Gaming

Nothing is more exciting than playing against real people. You may get bored at some point while playing against the computer, but you can be sure that you will never be bored while playing against real dealers with other people. Live casino technology allows Canadian players to achieve this easily, and Evolution Gaming is considered the leading companies in this technology. Find out more about Evolution Gaming and what it offers to Canadian players below.

A Short History of Evolution Gaming

Evolution Gaming was founded in 2006 and first started live streaming through a studio in Riga. In other words, it was broadcasting from a studio, not a real casino. In 2011, Evolution Gaming won many EGT awards and gained Italian, Danish, and Maltese gambling licenses. 

In 2013, the company started broadcasting from a real casino, based in Murcia. That same year, Evolution Gaming obtained a New Jersey license. By 2016, the company had opened its sixth studio in Europe. And by 2020, Evolution Gaming has won more than a dozen awards and is currently considered the largest live casino provider in Europe. This shows that it will be an ideal choice for Canadian players. 

While many live casino providers broadcast from Asia/Macau, Evolution Gaming broadcasts from eight cities: Riga (Latvia), Fort Mriehel (Malta), Tbilisi (Georgia), Bucharest (Romania), Spa (Belgium), Murcia (Spain), Vancouver (Canada) and Atlantic City (the USA).

Advantages of Evolution Gaming

  • Dedicated game tables and environments. Evolution Gaming tables can be dedicated to a particular online casino brand. In other words, multiple online casinos do not share the same table and the same dealer.
  • Full support for mobile devices. Evolution Gaming supports all platforms and ensures that their games offer the same features on every device. Mobile players and desktop players can connect to the same table and play the same game. All operating systems (iOS, Android) and all devices (iPhone, iPad, Android phones) are supported. Moreover, mobile players get the chance to play through a completely unique interface designed for small screens.
  • Professional dealers. Evolution Gaming is one of the rare providers with its own training academy. All dealers receive intensive training and learn how both games and a real casino work before they get in front of the camera. The Evolution Gaming academy is in Latvia and Malta.
  • Reliability of a global brand. The company has over 8,000 employees and works with over 300 operators. It has won the “Live Casino Supplier of the Year” award 10 times. It is traded on Nasdaq and audited by multiple government agencies due to its different licenses. Since it is an EU-based operation, it is much more reliable than Asian-based operations.
  • An amazing game collection. There are nearly 100 games in the Evolution Gaming collection, and all of the card & table game categories are covered. No matter what kind of table games you prefer, you’ll find it in the Evolution Gaming’s catalogue.

Evolution Gaming Portfolio

The Evolution Gaming collection includes all the games you can find in a real casino and play against a real dealer. In other words, you can play games such as poker, blackjack, baccarat, and roulette and their variants. (For example, there are both classic single-deck and side bet options for blackjack.) However, your options are not limited to these. There are also live dealer games that are unique to Evolution Gaming. Below you can see the most popular games of Evolution Gaming.

Live Roulette 

This is a very rich category because many classic and exotic variants of roulette are offered. First, let us state that there are European, American, and French roulette options. These basic roulette variants are offered with different betting limits. The most popular exotic variants in this category are Lightning Roulette and First Person Roulette:

  • The Lightning variant determines 1 to 5 lucky numbers before each spin and defines a multiplier between 50x and 500x for them. For example, if 20 is determined as the lucky number and its multiplier is 100x, your payment increases 100 times when you win this bet. Straight bets without a multiplier pay 30 to 1. 
  • First Person Roulette is a very interesting variant. It is played on a 3D roulette table, and you can view it from any angle. It starts as a standard online roulette game played against the computer, but you can switch to a live roulette game at any time.

Live Blackjack

Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games, and Evolution Gaming, therefore, supports a large number of its variants. You can start with the classic single deck blackjack, but there are lots of exotic options too. We can list them as follows:

  • Speed Blackjack: Betting options are offered to all players at the same time, and the player who makes the quickest decision gets the next card first.
  • Infinite Blackjack: There is no player limit - hundreds of people can play at the same time. “Six Card Charlie” rule is used, and the following additional bets are offered: Any Pair, 21 + 3, Hot 3, and Bust It.
  • Free Bet Blackjack: Free double down option is offered for Hard 9, 10, and 11 totals. Splitting is free for all pairs except 10. There are four different side-bet options: Any Pair, 21 + 3, Hot 3, and Bust It.
  • Power Blackjack: The game is played with 8 decks, but 9s and 10s are subtracted from each deck. So a total of 64 cards are missing. This requires Canadian players to use new strategies.
  • Salon Prive: High limit blackjack tables for high roller players.

It should be noted that almost all blackjack games have the “bet behind” support. So you are allowed to bet on the bets of the players at the table. There is even a variant called the “Blackjack Party” dedicated exclusively to this feature.

Live Poker

In addition to classic variants such as holdem poker, stud poker, and three-card poker, exotic options such as Side Bet City and 2 Hand Holdem are also offered. We recommend Side Bet City to Canadian players who have just started poker - you can get 1: 1000 payouts in this game.

Live Baccarat

Speed Baccarat and Squeeze Baccarat are the most popular variants in this category. For players who like fast games, we recommend the Speed Baccarat variant because every round lasts only 27 seconds in this game.

In addition to all these classic table games, players from Canada can try their chances in really exotic and new games such as Football Studio, Deal or No Deal, Monopoly, Dream Catcher, and Mega Ball. All games of Evolution Gaming are RNG certified and fair. 

Evolution Gaming Bonus Offers for Canadian Players

All games of Evolution Gaming support real-time and instant bonuses. While their content will depend on the online casino, it is possible to get instant rewards for a limited time, prize draws, or tournaments that can be tied to major sporting or cultural events. And, of course, Canadian players can also receive match bonuses, reload bonuses, and cashback offers for all games of this provider.
