Evolution Gaming specializes in live casinos online, i.e. casinos where you can play against real dealers working at real physical gambling tables. The dealers work in front of web cameras in a casino studio and everything is streamed directly to your computer in real time. A chat window allows you to communicate with the dealer and your fellow gamblers.
Evolution Gaming’s casino studio is located in Riga, but they will set up dedicated studios in other parts of the world when a casino operator so requires. They even set up live studios inside traditional brick-and-mortar casinos for offline casino operators that wish to venture into the world of online gambling.
The casino studio in Riga includes both standard suits and VIP gaming suits, giving operators the freedom to offer different experiences to their casino guests. Bespoke environments can be created, which is why the Evolution Gaming casino environment can look very different depending on from which gambling site you enter. There is even a blue-screen solution that can project virtually any surroundings.
Evolution Gaming is regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) and their casino studio in Riga is approved by the Latvian Gaming Board. In 2012, Evolution Gaming was awarded a Class 4 B2B Licence from the Malta Lotteries & Gaming Authority (LGA). Evolution Gaming also have approval from national regulatory bodies such as the Italian Gaming Authority Amministrazione Autonoma Monopoli di Stato (AAMS) and the Danish tax authority SKAT.
In 2010, Evolution Gaming became the first European company to receive the eCOGRA Certified Live Dealer Seal. The technology used by Evolution Gaming is certified by Technical Systems Testing (TST). To safeguard communication between the live casino and the player, the data is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Today, many well-established gambling sites feature an Evolution Gaming live casino, including Betsson, 888, Expekt and Ladbrokes. Unibet has a dedicated live casino for Unibet players only with Unibet branded tables, while William Hill boosts a dedicated VIP Live Casino that includes Salle Privée, VIP lobby and VIP Hosts.

It is up to each casino operator to pick which games from Evolution Gaming that the casino guests will have access to, and the game selection will therefore vary depending on from which gambling site you access Evolution’s live casino.
As a player in an Evolution Gaming live casino, you have a choice of game views, including full screen, and you will also have access to handy features such as statistics and recent history. Opening hours, language, betting limits, branded promotions, etc are set by the operator. The game is streamed in TV quality to your computer. Evolution Gaming’s FIVE network is a live video streaming system which consists of the Video Server Module and the Flash Client Module.
Live casinos with a local flavor are available at the request of the casino operator, such as the London Casino staffed with male British dealers and the Venezia Club, an Italian language casino that’s proven to be highly appealing to both a Italian and international audience.
At the time of writing, Evolution Gaming offers various types of roulette, blackjack and baccarat, and there is also an innovative live slot named Mermaid’s Fortune where a live dealer cheers you on, interacts with you and introduces bonus rounds with extra prizes.
Evolution Gaming’s Mini Live Roulette is a scaled-down version of roulette measuring no more than 200 x 200 pixels on your screen. Its compact size makes it possible for the player to play two or more games simultaneously.
The Red VIP Room offers all the games available on the main floor of Evolution Gaming’s live casino, but in an even more exclusive environment and with considerably higher betting limits. The dealers are specially trained to accommodate the high rollers and as a player you get a chance to compete and interact with like-minded casino guests.
Platinum VIP Live Blackjack is a blackjack room with a minimum bet of €250. The maximum bet is up to each casino operator to decide, constrained only by the (if any) limit set by the lawmakers in the operator’s jurisdiction.
The aforementioned Video Server Module works in conjunction with the Flash Client Module and has a built-in failover mechanism and automatic bandwidth detection that will come in handy in the event of a connection issue between your computer and the casino server. Also, the bandwidth detection mechanism automatically detects the FPS received by the Flash client to determine the best location from which to retrieve the video stream.
