Evolution Launches the World’s First Live Online Craps Game

Popular iGaming software developer Evolution just announced the world’s first live dealer craps game. And the management claims the title offers gamers all the perks of playing at a traditional casino.

For starters, Evolution included an Easy Mode and an online interactive tutorial to help beginners cope with the new experience. While the casino also plans to launch a Random Number Generator variant of craps in the upcoming weeks.

According to Evolution Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter, “Craps has been one of the most requested games by players and casinos for the past few years. And it was time to set things in motion. Incidentally, craps complete our portfolio as Evolution now offers every game that players would expect to find at a brick and mortar casino”.

“Developing the game and seizing the unique excitement at the craps table in an online setting was a challenge in itself. But the team has done an excellent job, and we now have a phenomenal product in our hands that craps enthusiasts will surely enjoy. Live craps will also help us expand our reach in potential markets outside Europe, as we plan to attract legions of new players from around the world”. Haushalter said.

He added, “We understand that not everyone knows how to play craps. That’s why our designers decided to add the Easy Mode and a simple interactive online tutorial explicitly explaining how the game functions. Like all first-person games from Evolution, this one includes the GO LIVE button, using which players can take the in-game route to the game’s live version”.

What’s the Initial Response Like?

Although it’s too early to say for certain what the market response will be like. The designers have left no stones unturned in their effort to offer players a life-like experience. For instance, a mechanized arm throws the dice, just like at a physical casino, to keep the odds fair. There is no room for the players, therefore, to blame the dealer in case things go south, much to the relief of the person-in-charge.

Proposed Merger with NetEnt

Apart from this groundbreaking release, Evolution is all set to acquire NetEnt for approximately $2.1 Billion, and this is the best time for a merger considering both firms are performing equally well in their respective target markets. While Evolution generated over 140 million Euros in revenue during the third quarter of 2020, NetEnt’s profits soared 58% compared to the same period last year.

In October, Evolution launched its first five live tables in Pennsylvania and Kaunsa in Lithuania where it opened a new medium-sized studio. Evolution has also been quite successful with Crazy Time and Instant Roulette and hopes to continue the streak with live craps.

On the other hand, NetEnt has dedicated 2020 to signing various deals with operators in the United States in a bid to strengthen its foothold in the country. The year saw NetEnt partnering with William Hill US, BetMGM, DraftKings, Scientific Games, and Tipico.
