Evolution Gaming launches first live casino studio in Canada

Well-known live casino provider Evolution Gaming has finally landed its industry-leading live casino product in New Westminster, British Columbia.


As part of a five-year deal with the BCLC (British Colombia Lottery Corporation), the sign-off with online casino Playnow.com was initiated last April. For the first time, Canadian players can enjoy real dealer tables in the same manner as European countries could for a while now.

Evolution Gaming is no newcomer, so as part of their lineup – one of eight to be precise – this state-of-the-art studio is a whopping 16,000 square feet and currently streams ten live roulette, blackjack and baccarat games, with more to come. 16 hours a day this selection is open for players from 10AM to 2AM PT and can be played on both desktop and mobile devices.
Martin Carlesund, Evolution Group CEO 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, added: “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.”
