Evolution Gaming, the main provider of live-streamed casino table games to operators such as 888, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power and William Hill, is to launch live dealer games based on the Deal Or No Deal TV show.
The exclusive global deal with the gaming arm of Deal Or No Deal brand owner Endemol will see the first see live dealer casino games based on the famous TV show rolled out across its network of operator clients next year.
Evolution CEO Jens von Bahr said the partnership with Endemol for the live Deal Or No Deal games “is the first milestone in what we expect to be a long and fruitful partnership.”
Jurian VanDerMeer, MD of Endemol Games, added: “Evolution is the perfect partner to take the Deal or No Deal brand to a different level, on a global scale.”
The gaming arm of the global TV production and distribution company has developed and licensed several successful real-money slots based on its brands, including Golden Balls, The Million Pound Drop and of course Deal Or No Deal.
The leading supplier of streamed live dealer casino games to European operators, hosted in its studios in Riga, Latvia, will soon launch what it calls “the world’s first live slot game”, which integrates a mini game show with a live presenter.
Also set to launch in the next two months and made available to Evolution’s operator client base are iPad versions of its live blackjack and roulette games, as well as live casino hold’em poker.
888 recently opened its own live casino room with Evolution, complete with a dedicated team of 50 dealers serving and interacting with players. The 888-branded and designed room is initially offering one live roulette and five live blackjack tables, one of which is VIP-branded for high-rollers.
