Evolution’s Lightning Roulette to Become a Land-based Game
Evolution, one of the leading iGaming suppliers of content in the industry, has signed a partnership with Scientific Games (SG), the renowned platform provider. Thanks to the partnership, Evolution’s Lightning Roulette will be able to become a land-based game and go live in land-based casinos across the globe.
The game will be made available exclusively from SG to land-based casinos across the world. Aside from Lightning Roulette, Evolution’s Dual Play Roulette, and Baccarat games are streamed from land-based casinos, easing the transition from live to land-based.
The title went online in its base version in 2018 and quickly became a fan-favorite. It received the Product Innovation of the Year Award at the Global Gaming Awards and the G2E Las Vegas and EGR’s Game of the Year award.
The two brands already have strong partnerships in multiple markets, especially in the European, Canadian and US markets.
Taking Online Success to Land-based
Representatives from Evolution, which recently went live with Entain, say that Lightning Roulette has been one of the most popular titles in the online casino sector and that they are excited about taking it to the land-based casinos across the globe.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said: “Lightning Roulette has been the biggest table game in online casino for years and we are thrilled to have Scientific Games bring it to land-based casinos. This gets us one step closer to letting players find Lightning Roulette everywhere they want to play. At Evolution, we have millions of players who enjoy the game, so there should be an instant fan base who are ready to play at their local casino when given the chance. When we created Lightning Roulette this was the first-time random computer outcomes had been mixed with physical real-world outcomes in Live Casino, and it was an instant success with players. This is also the first time an Evolution game has been brought into land-based casinos, so it is really quite exciting for us!”
Officials from SG say that Lightning Roulette has enjoyed phenomenal success in the online vertical and that they cannot wait to take this experience to the land-based sector.
