That brings us to today. As you’ll see in the next section, Evolution Gaming is still working hard to expand their business and put their games in front of as many live dealer fans as possible.
Evolution Gaming’s Live Casino Games
Evolution Gaming broadcasts their games live from the following locations:
They’re launching a new studio in Canada that will go live in 2018. This will be their first major expansion outside of Europe.
The games you can play will vary based on the studio location. For example, you’ll be able to play live roulette and blackjack from the Canada studio, but not casino hold ’em. That goes for their native speakers, too.
Now, let’s look at some examples of live games you can play.
Examples of Live Dealer Games
The games you can play from Evolution Gaming include:
Live Double Ball Roulette
Dual Play Roulette
Mini Live Roulette
Slingshot Auto Roulette
Three Card Poker
VIP Red Room**
Live Dream Catcher
Ultimate Live Texas Hold’em
**Limits and experience tailored to high limit players.
Their games also come in different variants. For example, they have their standard and VIP tables, as well as tables where dealers speak in their (the player’s) native language. This is great because dealers will also chat and have conversations with you.
Table limits vary based on game, table, jurisdiction, etc., but their high limit tables allow you to play as high as €5,000 for their blackjack games and much higher for their roulette tables.

Live Dealer Features
Evolution Gaming has included several features into their games. Some are game specific, while others are available for every game.
Here are some examples of their game features:
Favorite Bets – Customize and save up to 15 of your favorite roulette bets (single or multiple bets, special or neighborhood, etc.).
Side/Bonus Bets – Payouts are as high as 1,000 to 1.
Hot Players – Players are highlighted with a gold medal that will also show you how many game rounds they’ve won. Players who plan to ‘bet behind’ will appreciate this feature most.
Bet Behind – Place bets behind other players while you wait for one of the seats to open. You can bet behind all seven players if you want.
Pre-Decision – Make your decision to hit, stand, double down or split at the same time as the first player. This moves the games along faster, which means you can play more hands per hour.
Multi-Game Play – Play up to four different live dealer games at once.
24/7 – This depends on the operator, but IT IS possible to find live games 24/7.
All of Evolution Gaming’s live casino games are streamed in high-quality HD, with multiple camera views for each game.
Evolution’s live dealer games can be streamed and played from most, if not all, devices that connect to the web. That includes desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and tablets, TV and VLTs.
The mobile devices they support include:
iPad, iPad Air and iPad mini (all generations)
Android tablets (Samsung, Google Nexus, Sony)
iPhone (all generations)
Android smartphones (Samsung Galaxy, HTC, Google Nexus, LG, Sony)
We recommend that those of you with all other devices at least check to see if your device is compatible. It doesn’t hurt to check, and doesn’t take long either.
Licenses, Regulations and Approvals
Evolution Gaming is licensed and regulated by:
AGCC (Alderney Gambling Control Commission)
MGA (Malta Gaming Authority)
UKGC (UK Gambling Commission)

It’s obvious that Evolution Gaming is one of the best live dealer game providers. They have a large selection of games, limits and plenty of interesting features.
They have high ratings, too – including a 10/10 at CasinoListings.com
Unfortunately, Americans won’t be able to play their games due to U.S. gambling laws (for operators)—Not until they make their way into one of the legal, regulated states anyway.
For everyone else, though, we recommend you check their games out.
