In a very exciting deal, Microgaming have teamed up with one of the best live dealer software providers in the business, Evolution Gaming.
This partnership will see Evolution Gaming’s extensive live dealer catalogue, including some of the best live dealer blackjack titles, being rolled out at our recommended Microgaming casinos, such as Royal Vegas.
The CEO of Evolution Gaming, Jens von Bahr, stated that while the two software providers were once competitors the partnership makes sense as they share the same goal.
“This is likely to be one of the most significant strategic deals in the history of Live Casino gaming,” he said.
“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.”
The CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, also commented on the pairing recognising Evolution Gaming’s position in the Live Dealer casino industry.
“Evolution’s 100% 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,” he said
“Through the deal with Evolution, we can offer our operators a regulated, European-focused Live Casino experience.
“We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Evolution in the future through the potential provision of Microgaming content via our Quickfire platform.”
The integration is underway and will no doubt be rolled out at our recommended Microgaming casinos soon featuring Evolution Gaming’s standard and VIP live games, which are streamed from their Latvia studio.
Evolution Gaming’s live dealer blackjack titles
