The past year has undoubtedly been an undisputed triumph for Evolution. With the acquisition of NetEnt leading to an impressive profit, 2020 saw the online casino star soar higher than ever before. It would have been easy for this industry giant to take 2021 easy and perhaps focus on domestic projects, but that’s just not their style. Instead, they are continuing their relentless drive forward into new horizons, new markets, and new fan favourites.
Evolution seeks to satisfy player demand with innovative new live dealer casino games
Evolution emphasises innovation and diverse offerings, and this year’s focus on expanding its industry footprint is no exception. They have launched 12 new games in as many months and have seen customer demand steadily grow as a result. One of the company’s most impressive successes has been its live game shows.
Not every brand can create entertaining and exciting shows that keep players returning for more, but Evolution is one of the best. For example, it is the only online casino supplier to have live dealer craps, and they are hoping to expand with more new live dealer casino games and new shows in the future. The company has seen “unwavering support” for their classic live dealer offerings such as blackjack and roulette and are excited to provide players more of what they want with exciting features such as virtual reality and Oculus rift support.
The focus on innovation and working with regulation rather than against it has seen the company thrive. It recorded significant revenue increases in 2020 and expect 2021 to continue the trend. They attribute this boost in large part to their acquisition of Red Tiger and NetEnt, noting that €17.8 million of the company’s 2020 revenue of €177.7m came from NetEnt games alone. That is a figure expected to rise as Evolution optimises NetEnt’s iconic titles for live casino play.
Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s chief product officer, believes that 2021 will see even bigger revenue than 2020 thanks to the emphasis on creating innovative entertainment options:
“We have now added top-performing online slots to our live casino product portfolio and will utilise NetEnt’s most iconic titles, blending NetEnt player favourites into the world of live casino to create a new wave of games that provide players with amazing new entertainment experiences.”
