Evolution Gaming Launches First-Ever Live Casino in Canada

Staff Writer New Casinos & Games, Evolution 4,389

If there’s anyone that could enter the Canadian market, it’s Evolution Gaming.

British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) holds the monopoly over local online gambling services just like other Canadian provinces and as soon as BCLC decided to incorporate the new live dealer software on its provincially regulated website, Evolution was the first to make the deal.

The best supplier of live casino solutions in the world signed a 5-year-agreement with BCLC in April 2017 to be the supplier of the first casino offering in this province and to build 16,000 square-foot live dealer studio.

With the state-of-art studio near Westminster Pier Park in British Columbia being finished now, Evolution has launched ten Live Casino Canada tables via BCLC’s PlayNow.com website. The launched live games include baccarat, blackjack, roulette, auto roulette and baccarat eSqueeze. Games are available on all devices from 10am to 2am for now. Should the games prove popular, the hours will be prolonged.

This deal made 50 job opportunities out of 170 estimated in the following years. All employees must complete BCLC Appropriate Response Training and follow BCLC’s standards, policies and procedures to ensure safe and secure online gambling. Other potential partners are the only two provinces to host online gambling monopolies in their respective territories, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and Lotto-Quebec.

This is a very important deal for Evolution since it marks a huge breakthrough for the company.

This is Evolution’s eight live dealer studio but the first one outside Europe and also the first studio to operate with its own dedicated standalone data centre.

This deal with BCLC in Canada represents the huge step in expanding to other regulated markets. Their innovative products will bring the thrill of live, interactive casino games to BCLC’s online players and therefore deliver the best experience possible. This marks only the initial phase in a long-term partnership with BCLC and other Canadian operators.

Since other Canadian provinces operate non-competitively in Canada’s regulated market, they will be able to share generic Live Dealer tables when they chose to enrich their own online offering.
