Evolution Gaming, the specialist in offering live casino games, announced on May 5, 2021, that it would be going live in the UK on Entain group’s Coral and Ladbrokes brands. The deal also includes Gala Bingo and Gala Casino. Before the agreement, Evolution was already partnering with Entain to offer online casino services in multiple regulated US and European markets.
Speaking immediately after signing this all-important deal, Richard Barr, LadbrokesCoral’s Gaming Director, said that the group is excited to entertain its UK and global players with Evolution’s world-class live casino games.
On his part, Gavin Hamilton, Evolution’s European Commercial Director, said that the UK online gambling market is a crucial one to the company. He added that they are delighted their UK fans on Gala, Coral, and Ladbrokes will finally access Evolution games that boast the latest gaming innovations.
Evolution Gaming will debut its full range of games on these platforms following the agreement. This includes popular game shows such as Lightning Roulette and Crazy Time. Players will also access all Evolution’s first-person RNG games on these live casinos.
Currently, Entain’s Ladbrokes, Coral, and Galla offer their players entertaining slot titles from Evolution’s NetEnt and Red Tiger brands. If you’re a seasoned player, you’d know that NetEnt is the brainchild behind popular online slots like Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Jack Hammer 2, and more.
Evolution continues its highly innovative technique of creating a hybrid between RNG slots and live dealer experience. This time, the company is looking to convert NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest into a live game series. Interestingly, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt will be the first of its kind to be played using a VR (Virtual Reality) headset.
Like the original video slot, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is set inside the Incan temple, where players pick stones of varying values to place wagers. The main goal is to wager on stones matching the ones you pick later on.
You start by choosing a stone/stones to find during the Treasure Hunt session. There are up to six stones of varying colors and multipliers. They include:
It’s important to remember that finding more valuable stones on the wall is more complicated than finding the less valuable ones. This means players have some control over choosing the game’s volatility.
After selecting a stone, you’ll choose the number of picks to get during the Treasure Hunt session. You can choose between one to 20 picks, with each choice revealing a single stone on a wall containing 70 hidden stones. Of course, the more you pick, the higher your chances of winning.
Overall, it’s difficult to imagine this game not being a hit on Entain’s online casino brands and other Evolution-powered gambling sites. The game might even turn out to be more popular than the original Gonzo’s Quest after its release. So, be on the lookout!
The deal with Entain is undoubtedly an important one for Evolution, Entain’s online casinos, and the UK punters. Players will enjoy Evolutions live games that use cutting-edge technology to deliver a real-life experience.
These players will also get a feel of Evolution’s one and only Live Craps game, launched in December last year. So, all in all, UK live casino players are in for an unforgettable treat, thanks to this deal.
