Above is one of the latest table additions to the Clubhouse: Clubhouse Blackjack 14.
- Clubhouse Roulette 2, and
- Clubhouse Blackjack tables 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16
The latest additions look quite different to the original Clubhouse tables (Roulette 1 & Blackjack 1-11) which are all powered by Evolution Gaming and started taking bets in 2017, examples of which are shown below.
Clubhouse Blackjack 3….
and Blackjack 7…
There’s a good reason for the difference. Not only are the new tables inside a different studio, they are also powered by a different provider – Ezugi. Different, but as of some time early this year, part of the Evolution Gaming group following Evolution’s recent purchase of Ezugi.
This is the first example we’ve seen of Evolution/Ezugi product collaboration resulting from the acquisition and it hints at what can expect to see more of in the future. Ezugi tables popping up at more and more Evolution licensee casinos for one, but also possibly getting more of the Evolution look and feel treatment.
While clearly there has been an effort to match the Clubhouse theme here, Evolution studio and table stylings on these new Ezugi tables is unmistakeable. In time maybe the playing interface will get closer to Evolution’s also. After all, it makes sense to have a single capture and delivery technology rather than multiple.
It will be interesting to see if the product merge continues into areas such as the house rules applying to particular games (eg blackjack house rules, which currently differ).
