Evolution Gaming launches first live casino studio in Canada

Evolution Gaming has taken its industry-leading live casino product across the pond to the New Westminster area of British Columbia, in Canada.


Signed-off on last April as part of a five-year deal with BCLC (British Columbia Lottery Corporation), the provincially-run online casino PlayNow.com has made real dealer tables accessible to Canadian players for the first time.


This new state-of-the-art studio is this pioneering provider’s eighth one. It’s 16,000-square-feet, and currently streams ten live roulette, blackjack and baccarat games with every intention to expand this selection. These tables will be available to players for 16 hours a day, from 10 am to 2am PT, and are accessible on both desktop and mobile channels.


Evolution Group CEO Martin Carlesund remarked in the company’s press release: “After months of planning and hard work by Evolution and BCLC staff we are delighted that the new studio is now live and serving online players in British Columbia. […] We see this as the initial phase in a long-term partnership with BCLC and other Canadian operators. There are many more opportunities to enrich the player experience online, including delivering truly convergent solutions such as Dual Play live tables that allow online and land-based play at the same table.”


Monica Bohm, BCLC’s Vice-President, eGaming, commented: “The addition of new and innovative products from Evolution’s Live Casino portfolio for existing and new players to enjoy helps keep BCLC at the forefront of gambling entertainment, while creating local jobs and generating revenue to help fund provincial initiatives in British Columbia.”
