Evolution Gaming this week unveiled new Live Dealer games and more in phase one of their ambitious product drop scheduled for 2022. The online casino gaming company launched 25 new games across their six brands: Evolution, NetEnt, Red Tiger, Ezugi, Big Time Gaming, and DigiWheel.
In a live product launch and demo, Evolution CEO Martin Carlesund explained that a handful of the games are “new takes on some of our most popular games,” but also promised a bevy of new, innovative casino-style games.
88 New Live Dealer Games And Slots Dropping This Year
In what the company is calling “THE GREAT 88,” Evolution is expected to add 88 games in 2022, with the 25 new Live Dealer games and slots announced this week serving as the first salvo.
The new games include Live Dealer games, live game shows, and slots offerings, all of which are popular for the global company based in Sweden. Evolution offers integrated gaming experiences such as Live Dealer games for brands such as FanDuel and DraftKings, and may more.
A few of the new games added this month and expected in coming weeks include:
- Gold Bar Roulette: A stunning VIP roulette experience hosted from inside a bank vault.
- Russian Poker: A new casino poker live dealer game.
- Golden Catch will reintroduce Bonus Buys to the Evolution platforms.
- Wild Portals, a fast-paced sci-fi themed spin slot that will hit online casinos in March.
- Millionaire Rush, which provides new prizes on every spin.
- Outlaw, a slots game that serves as the third in a trilogy following popular titles Little Devil and Wildflower. As in those previous games from Evolution, the soundtrack of Outlaw is provided by English rock band The Cult.
In their live event, Evolution announced that in 2022 they will be adding Bonus Buys to their entire back catalog. This means that players on some games can have a chance to boost their winnings potential by 100x.
In 2021, Evolution launched several new games that proved popular with players, including Cash Or Crash, Lightning Blackjack, and Starburst Extreme. But mostly last year was notable for the company’s efforts to unleash a “On-Stop Shop,” an app and web portal experience for better convenience that has much of their catalog of games in one place.
According to Evolution, in the last six months more than 10% of gaming traffic migrated from existing platforms to One-Stop Shop.
Live Dealer Games Push Growth
In an earnings report last fall, Evolution reported that their live casino gaming division generated a 53% growth year-over-year, driving overall company growth, which should only continue with the new Live Dealer games coming to online casinos across the US and beyond. In fact, the launch of several new legal iGaming markets for Live Dealer games, such as Michigan, has helped fuel that surge.
Evolution is the only provider of Live Dealer games in the United States. With that lack of variety in mind, they did announce new features to many of their popular live casino games, adding betting options and/or new rules for a bigger variety of bet options.
