Evolution Gaming Expands to Canada

For the first time, leading live dealer games provider, Evolution Gaming, will open a studio beyond European borders. The high-tech studio will stream casino games live from British Columbia later this year as a result of a partnership with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.

Play live casino games for real money on BCLC’s PlayNow.com on 1 gaming tables. Eventually the studio will support more Canadian lottery corporations and will create nearly 200 more jobs in the Vancouver area in the initial phase.

Available games will include baccarat, blackjack and roulette suitable for desktop and mobile formats.

Martin Carlesund, CEO Evolution Group, said, “Entering the Canadian market with BCLC signifies a huge breakthrough, outside of our European operations. Through this new partnership we are confident we will deliver the very best Live Casino experience for BCLC players, and an exceptional Live Casino studio facility for BCLC and other Canadian lottery jurisdictions in the future.

“This latest expansion consolidates Evolution’s position as global leader in the B2B Live Casino market. This delivery further highlights our ability to provide solutions that meet the most stringent requirements of regulated markets.”

Monica Bohm, BCLC’s Vice-President, eGaming, commented, “We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Evolution, to bring the thrill of live, interactive casino gaming to our online players.

“New and innovative products like Live Casino will help BCLC continue to deliver the very best in gambling entertainment to our players while benefiting communities across British Columbia.”
