From an aesthetics point of view, Evolution Gaming's live blackjack is
impressive. It offers players a range of view orientation and video quality
selection options that sets it apart from most other live blackjack platforms.
From a view orientation standpoint, you may choose an 'Classic View', which is
akin to the interface offered on most live blackjack platforms, or a '3D
View' which presents the video stream of the dealer and table in an enlarged
format, taking up the entire bet interface screen.
This '3D View' is a notable differentiating feature of Evolution's
blackjack compared with competing platforms and creates the illusion of sitting
at the same table with the dealer, rather viewing a smaller webcast framed within a
You are also able to adjust the video stream quality to best suit your
connection speed. With a fast connection, TV quality streaming is possible
and the vision is very good. At slow/moderate connections (0.5Mbps -
1Mbps) the video is still pretty smooth and playable.
Standard and VIP versions of blackjack are also offered. Standard blackjack
(see below) sees dealers in black and tables in classic casino green. VIP
blackjack offers a slightly more opulent ambience with dealers in gold and red
tables. Bet limits are substantially higher on the VIP blackjack tables.
Evolution's innovative platform has caught the attention of quite a few of the
'Tier 1' online gambling operators. In the last 12 months they have
managed to sign Victor Chandler, Unibet, Gala Coral, Blue Square, William Hill,
Expekt.com and PartyGaming. So fast has been the rate of adoption amongst
big brand operators, that Evolution was forced in early 2009 to expand the size
of their relatively new Alderney licensed
dealer studio in Riga, Latvia to be able to provide enough dealers and
tables for licensee casinos and their players.
