Loto-Québec has made the announcement that it would be increasing its portfolio of games for live casinos in Canada. This expansion will include the addition of new Dual Play games supplied by Evolution Gaming, a longtime supply partner and a powerhouse in the casino gaming industry.
The new Evolution tables will be housed at Casino Montreal, which is one of the major venues owned by Loto-Québec. This will further cement the collaboration between the two organizations. As a consequence of the recent agreement reached between the two parties, Evolution and Loto-Québec will have the ability to combine their respective online and land-based gaming offerings.
These two new games, Dual Play Roulette and Dual Play Baccarat, both utilize Evolution’s cutting-edge Dual Play technology, which enables smooth multiplayer play for land-based and internet gamblers all at the same time. The Dual Play technology was developed specifically for these games. In addition, depending on the arrangement, these Dual Play tables may be utilized for either business-to-consumer or business-to-business transactions.
In reference to the relationship, Evolution Gaming’s North American Commercial Director, Jeff Millar, made the following statement: “Live Casino is the natural bridge between land-based and online, and with Dual Play we have developed a product exclusive to land-based casinos that want to explore their online potential.”
An Association for the Long Term
Loto-Québec, a Canadian lottery operator, expanded the iGaming options available to its players in 2018 by hosting six Evolution-branded tables on its Casino en direct (Live Casino) platform. This marked the beginning of a cooperation between Evolution and Loto-Québec. These tables were managed and aired from Evolution’s very own live casino studio in Vancouver, which is located in British Columbia. Out of these six tables, five were hosted by croupiers who spoke French.
The product manager for Loto-Québec’s online platform, Sovanna Phan, was of the opinion that Evolution’s goal to seamlessly bridge the gap between land-based and Quebec online casino players “fit the glove” of the goals of Loto-Québec,
which itself offered solid gaming experiences for players at physical venues and through their online gaming portal. Evolution’s goal is to seamlessly bridge the gap between land-based and Quebec online casino players.
According to James Stern, the company’s former chief business officer for land-based and American gaming, the service that Evolution will be offering to Loto-Québec is a testament to the provider’s significant experience in live casino solutions. Evolution is going to be supplying the service to Loto-Québec.
