GOODBYE 2018…


Goodbye 2018. Hello 2019!


Wow; that year went FAST! It must be time to ask the industry how the last 12 months went, and what the next 12 have in store…


Amy Riches


Head of Marketing, Evolution Gamin


Last but not least was the news announced


in November that we have entered into an agreement to acquire Ezugi in an all-cash deal. It’s a very exciting strategic deal that we are confident will see Evolution increase its geographic footprint and accelerate growth.


What was great about 2018? It’s hard to choose — there have been so many stand-out events for us in 2018. This year has been extremely action-packed, with many new exciting games launching, award wins and studio expansions across the globe. 2018 was the year Evolution released its


first ever set of RNG games with our First Person Gaming range. These games, which make RNG video games come alive by taking players through an in-game portal straight into a live game, were a bold move into the RNG gaming world for Evolution. 2018 was also a landmark year in terms of


delivering significant new studio builds, with the launch of three new studios — two in North America (Vancouver, Canada and Atlantic City, New Jersey) and one in Tbilisi, Georgia.


102 JANUARY 2019


What are you most excited about for the industry in 2019? We seem to be moving into a new era of ultra-entertaining and interactive Live Casino products. It’s incredibly exciting for players and just as exciting for operators. Traditional casino classics such as Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker variants remain central to operators’ Live Casino offerings, but two key things are happening to content: Firstly, those casino classics are being extended and enhanced with extra layers of betting opportunity and potential winnings for players: RNG elements added alongside and as an integral part of the live game; massive multipliers; Progressive Jackpots offering additional prizes of millions of euros, and more.


Secondly, Live Casino games are evolving to


deliver more entertainment, interaction and thrills to players. Certainly, there is a new generation of games from Evolution – games that build in TV game show type characteristics and with dealers taking on the role of interactive game presenters or game hosts. Our Lightning Roulette game is a great


example of this, as the game encompasses both of the two trends I have outlined above. The re-regulation of Sweden’s market is also going to make for an exciting start to 2019. Evolution’s track record of achieving first-to- market advantage for our licensees is well known. As new territories open up through re-regulation, we are always on the lookout for ways to capitalise on those opportunities for our licensees. On 1 January 2019, we will be ready in Sweden, with two of our customers – ATG and Svenska Spel – set to be live the day the new market opens.


What are you excited about for Evolution’s 2019? We’re getting prepared for the biggest exhibition of the year, ICE 2019, where our stand is going to push the boundaries of what we have done in the past and we’re really excited to show everyone. Also, this ICE, we have our biggest ever selection of new products coming up – products that we are confident will keep our licensees’ players entertained and coming back for more. But it’s not just about this latest set of upcoming products. Expansion, continuing strong growth in mobile, further innovative new games in the pipeline, the ongoing enrichment of our existing games portfolio, the land-based casino opportunity… all of these things together will, I feel sure, help us to further strengthen our leading position in the Live Casino market. All in all, there’s a great deal for us to be excited about for 2019.
