Evolution Gaming launches live casino for casinoheroes

Evolution Gaming, the live casino software specialist, has announced a deal established with online casino operator Hero Gaming for the provision of a complete listing of Evolution’s live casino games at casinoheroes.com.

Casinoheroes.com is an up and coming, fast growing online casino operating in a number of European markets. Last month, casinoheroes.com was shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Rising Star’ award by EGR and in June, won the coveted EGR Innovative Start-up 2015.

The deal brings Evolution Gaming’s full spectrum of live casino games to casinoheroes.com, all of which will be playable on desktop, laptop, smartphone and tablet and compatible with all of the major browsers. Such games include Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat, Live Casino Hold’Em, Live Caribbean Stud Poker, Live Tri-Card Poker and the highly anticipated, recently launched Live Baccarat Squeeze. Evolution’s live platform will be launched at casinoheroes.com in the beginning of the New Year.

“When Hero Gaming was founded in 2014, we shared a vision of redefining online casino by adding adventure and elements of gaming to the picture. Now, with the addition of Evolution’s Live Casino games, we will be able to bring even more excitement to our customers and continue on our mission to offer an entertaining experience beyond the standard online casino,” Magnus Alebo, CEO of Hero Gaming was quoted as saying.

Evolution Gaming’s CCO, Sebastian Johannisson, had a few words of his own regarding the deal, saying that Evolution Gaming is “happy to have entered into a partnership with Hero Gaming for our Live Casino products. Casino Heroes is a fast-growing and highly innovative brand, and therefore a perfect match for Evolution. I am convinced the addition of Live Casino games will support its continued success.”

Microgaming and Evolution Gaming sign strategic live casino deal – Sep 2015

In a deal which stands as testament to Evolution Gaming’s prowess in the field of live casino gaming software provision, Microgaming and Evolution Gaming have announced that all of Microgaming’s European clients’ live casino platforms will now be serviced by Evolution Gaming. As an outcome of the announced deal, the 400+ Microgaming clients will be offered Evolution Gaming’s Live Casino games portfolio.

The first of the lot to take up the offer is Betway Casino, whose integration with Evolution’s live software is underway as we speak. Betway Casino, known to football fans around the world due to their sponsorship of the Premiership Club West Ham United, is to launch Evolution’s entire live casino platform on computer and mobile devices within multiple markets, with Belgium and the UK being afforded primary focus.

Betway Casino will gain access to Evolution’s newly acquired studios in Latvia, from which Evolution’s mainstream and VIP live casino games are streamed, as well as the live software leader’s studios in Malta, from which a number of Evolution’s games, such as London Roulette, are also broadcast.

Mr Von Bahr, Evolution’s Chief Executive Officer, commented on the deal, saying that “this is likely to be one of the most significant strategic deals in the history of Live Casino gaming. In the past, Microgaming and Evolution have been competitors when offering Live Casino services to licensees. We know the high standards set by Microgaming, they are a giant in the gaming world, and we are proud to establish a close working relationship with them, with a single shared goal: to offer the world’s best Live Casino to Microgaming’s extensive licensee base.”

Mr Von Bahr’s counterpart at Microgaming, Mr Mr Raatgever had some words of his own to share about the historic deal, stating that, “Evolution’s one hundred per cent focus on B2B Live Casino provision, allied to their significant and sustained investment in skills and infrastructure, has made them a dominant player in Live Casino. Through the deal with Evolution, we can offer our players a regulated, European-focused Live Casino experience. We offer a fully-rounded, unrivalled gaming offering to our clients, and this agreement cements our commitment to continually deliver this. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Evolution in the future through the potential provision of Microgaming content via our Quickfire platform.”

Evolution Gaming anticipates that Microgaming’s European licensees will begin to take on Evolution’s Live Casino offering progressively and steadily, following in Betway Casino’s footsteps in time.
