Under the terms of the new deal that Microgaming recently entered into with Evolution Gaming, it will see Evolution become the preferred provider of Live Dealer Casino Games to Microgaming’s European-focused customers. Priority will be given to customers from the UK and Belgium and integration is already underway over at Betway.
“This is likely to be one of the most significant strategic deals in the history of Live Casino gaming. In the past, Microgaming and Evolution have been competitors when offering Live Casino services to licensees,” said the CEO of Evolution, Jens von Bahr. “We know the high standards set by Microgaming, they are a giant in the gaming world, and we are proud to establish a close working relationship with them, with a single shared goal: to offer the world’s best Live Casino to Microgaming’s extensive licensee base,” added the CEO.
New Zealanders will still be able to play on Microgaming’s impressive range of Live Dealer Casino Games and they can enjoy titles such as Live Roulette, Live Baccarat, Live Blackjack and Live Casino Hold’em over at sites like Jackpot City Casino, All Slots Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Royal Vegas Casino and Casino Mate. It is not yet clear at this moment whether or not Live Games from Evolution will end up at these NZ online casinos.
Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever, also commented on this strategic deal. He said, “Evolution’s 100% focus on B2B Live Casino provision, allied to their significant and sustained investment in skills and infrastructure, has made them a dominant player in Live Casino. Through the deal with Evolution, we can offer our operators a regulated, European-focused Live Casino experience.”
He then finished by saying, “We offer a fully-rounded, unrivalled gaming offering to our clients, and this agreement cements our commitment to continually deliver this. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with Evolution in the future through the potential provision of Microgaming content via our Quickfire platform.”
Evolution Gaming has developed a similar range of Live Dealer Casino Games including Exclusive Live Dealer Games which can only be found at certain online casinos, as well Live VIP Roulette, Live Immersive Roulette and Live Three Card Poker. Don’t forget that if you are based in New Zealand and end up visiting one of the New Zealand friendly online casinos mentioned above, you will also be able to find Playboy Bunny Live Dealers in addition to the regular live dealers.

Microgaming won the Digital Gaming Innovation award and for a second year running, the Digital Product of the Year award.
