Evolution Gaming Debuts Dual Play Games in Quebec

On March 23, 2022, Evolution Gaming issued a statement that it will be debuting two of its Dual Play tables for the first time in Canada. Loto-Québec’s Casino Montreal will be the first Canadian land-based property to launch the provider’s exciting Dual Play Roulette and Dual Play Baccarat live table games. The casino will now operate two of each kind.

Evolution Gaming is a prominent gaming provider which supplies casino operators from regulated markets with exceptional localized Live Casino products in both retail and online form. The company was established in 2006 and currently has partnered with over 300 casino operators from all around the globe, while also seeking new market opportunities to expand its operations.

Two New Table Games

The gaming provider and the Crown corporation are partners since 2018 and so far, they have enjoyed immaculate cooperation and this latest launch confirms it once more. At the start of the relationship, the provider introduced six dedicated table games online for patrons of the Crown. All of which were hosted at the supplier’s live casino studio in Vancouver.

The company’s Dual Play product is one that combines brick-and-mortar and online casino experience. For instance, it allows players seated at real-life Baccarat and Roulette table games to play with others who are online in the same live game. And now, patrons of the Crown agency’s Casino Montreal will be also able to enjoy them on their visits.

Loto-Québec was the first state-run Crown agency and the first online gaming platform to implement the provider’s Dual Play solutions in Canada. And they are available at the land-based property and online. Over the last few years, the Crown has launched more of the provider’s live games, including those that are streamed live from its European studios.

Jeff Millar, who is the Commercial Director for North America of the gaming provider has said a few words on the company’s most recent launch in Quebec. According to him, their Live Casino product is the natural connection between land-based and online gambling. And via their Dual Play, the supplier has managed to create a product for brick-and-mortar amenities that they want to explore in online form too.

Live in Alberta as Well

In addition to Quebec’s regulated gaming sector, Evolution Gaming has also gained access to Alberta’s one. Back in March last year, the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission announced that it has inked a deal with the provider to launch a selection of the supplier’s online titles such as Roulette, Infinite Blackjack, Baccarat, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em on its online platform PlayAlberta.

Acquisition Complete

A month later, the gaming provider revealed that it had agreed to a deal for the acquisition of the prominent slot machine developer Big Time Gaming. It was reported that the up-front payment consisted of €80 million in cash and the rest will be paid in newly issued shares of the renowned content supplier. The shares included in the upfront payment were valued at Nasdaq Stockholm’s average rating between March 23 and April 7, 2021.
