Evolution Gaming Begins Revolution at ICE London

Evolution Gaming Begins Revolution at ICE London

ICE 2018 which was held in London from 6th to 8th of February introduced some cutting-edge novelties to the eager crowd. One of the more revolutionary displays came from Evolution Gaming, live casino solution provider. They have presented numerous new inventions and products at this year’s event, but one in particular stood out: their groundbreaking Lightning Roulette game.

It’s an expended Roulette game that promises to deliver a whole new experience to live casinos everywhere. Not only does it contain all the usual Roulette bet modes, but it also randomly generates 1 to 5 lucky numbers in each game round, as well as random lucky payouts between 50:1 and 500:1 for Straight Up bets placed on a lucky number in every round. To make the game more dramatic and memorable, there are quite tasteful lightning bolts and sound effects that enhance the game playing experience.

The brand’s Chief Product Officer, Todd Haushalter, went on to explain why the Lightning Roulette was not only Evolution’s centerpiece at ICE, but also the talk of the entire event. He admitted that everyone who has seen the game was “blown away – both players and industry veterans alike.” He went on to say that the company’s developing team worked hard to create a game that will become a player favorite.

“This is the most complex product we have ever done, but all that complexity is hidden from the players, who only see that each round, between one and five numbers are struck by lightning and given magnified pay outs of 50x – 500x. To do this we combined digital random number generators with the Live Roulette wheel, which has never been done before. The studio itself is also incredibly advanced,” Haushalter continued.

Beside the Lightning Roulette, some of the most notable offering on Evolution Gaming’s stand were Salon Privé, a Roulette and Blackjack collection with VIP appeal which aims to be one of the most luxurious table games around. Talking about it, Haushalter commented: “This has never been done before because it is so difficult to achieve operationally. We are offering players unprecedented levels of control over the game at totally private, single-player Roulette and Blackjack tables. From choosing their favourite dealer, to changing the cards to being in charge of the game speed, the players can control all of this and more. Our mission with the Salon Privé is to provide the sort of ‘white glove’ service that is offered in the private gaming salons of Las Vegas.”

With two new live Baccarat games also on the show – Dragon Tiger and No Commission Baccarat – it’s obvious that this year’s ICE is a huge success for supplier. Haushalter sums it up by stating that the company takes its leadership position on the market very seriously and that the ICE lineup reflects just that: “Our partners expect us to serve their mass market players, high-limit players, even their poker, bingo, and slot customers, and to continually dazzle their players with new and interesting ways to play online. We worked really hard to deliver all these new products at ICE and adding these to our current portfolio, which includes Dual Play Roulette and Baccarat, 15 different spoken language Roulette games, Dream Catcher, hundreds of Blackjack games, and our exclusive and proprietary Poker games including the latest addition of Live Texas Hold’em Bonus, I think we have a market leading offering for both players and operators. Come by our stand at ICE and see what the future of Live Casino looks like.”

The brand is off to quite the impressive start in 2018. In addition to its success at this year’s ICE event, it scored the ‘Supplier of the Year’ award during the annual EGR Nordics Awards in Malta just last month.
