Evolution Gaming adds two new games

Wed, Jun 5, 3:53pm by Staff Writer

Live dealer gaming is set for a shake up thanks to Evolution Gaming, with two new live games launched last Friday.

Free Bet Blackjack and 2 Hand Casino Hold’em are the additions, which give Evolution Gaming the step up in its vast portfolio of poker tables and live blackjack offerings.

Founded in 2006, Evolution Gaming first authorised its mobile gaming platform, including live Casino Hold’em in 2012.

It is available in jurisdictions across the globe, including in Europe, New Jersey and Canada.

Free Bet Blackjack is the latest game to join Evolution’s vast family of live blackjack games, according to

It offers unlimited seats to its players at a single table, while featuring automatic free bets on hand-picked split and double down bets placed.

“Our Free Bet Blackjack is based on one of the most popular modern varieties of blackjack played in land-based casinos, so we are confident it will be a big hit with players,” Evolution Gaming’s chief product officers Todd Haushalter said in a press released on Friday.

Evolution Gaming has summed up the product as a single hand being dealt to all players, as in infinite blackjack.

The process is achieved with advanced software that combines the live dealing of physical and virtual cards directly to each individual player, irrespective of how many players are at the table at any given time.

Once the initial two cards have been dealt, each player is free to play their hand as they wish and make their own betting decisions.

“During each game round Free Double Down bets on two-card hard 9, 10, 11 total and free split bets on all pairs except 10s are automatically offered to the player whenever their hand qualifies.

The game also includes four optional side bets – any pairs, 21+3, Hot 3 and Bust It – and the Six Card Charlie rule.

What is 2 Hand Casino Hold’em?

2 Hand Casino Hold’em offers two hands for every player, resulting in a doubly entertaining experience with increased fun, betting options and chances to win.

“if the player loses their hand in standard poker then the game is over. With two hands, however, the fun and suspense keeps on coming,” Haushalter said.

2 Hand Casino Hold’em is another unique poker variant from Evolution in which a virtually unlimited number of players play against the house and are dealt two separate hands.

As well as giving players the choice of playing one or two hands, and an optional AA Bonus bet, 2 Hand Casino Hold’em also results in more game rounds for players to enjoy.

“Evolution says its game statistics show that the fast-paced two-hand game results in 70 per cent more games in a typical gaming session compared with its standard Live Casino Hold’em Game.

Evolution Gaming has a unique portfolio that features unique multi-camera immersive roulette, live roulette, live blackjack, live casino Hold’em, live three card poker and more.

By adding Free Bet Blackjack and 2 Hand Casino Hold’em the company further secures its place in terms of strong casino gaming options.

These new games are a quietly solid move for Evolution Gaming, as the company looks to continue to develop options for its players of all different ages and backgrounds.

Virtual reality and the future of casino gaming

Casino technology is continuously evolving thanks to cutting edge modernisations that are being developed.

CIO Review reports some of the latest trends that should peak the interest of those interest in online betting and gambling, with a slant on the future of casino industry.

The Virtual Reality (VR) headset market has been steadily on the rise, with a large number of casino games being developed to incorporate this engaging software.

VR has turned out to be an excellent option for players who want to avoid visiting casinos in person, but still want to cherish the realistic fervors of table games like blackjack and poker.

Traditionalists who postulated that digital casino gaming would provide a menial experience have been proven wrong, as VR has enhanced the excitement of players.

It has made games interactive, so the experience almost border on a real-life occurrence.

An offshoot of Virtual Reality is Agumented Reality (AR) that is not lagging behind VR in becoming a casino trend in undergoing experimentation, research and development.

The superimposition of the real and the virtual bring live dealers to the player’s doorstep, making augmented gameplay experiences possible.

Wearable devices such as smart watches and other such gadgets are also becoming an increasingly familiar sight, although casino operators are aware of the risks these could pose to the integrity of the gaming experience.
