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 graphical interface. 

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, 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.
