Full Tilt seals Evolution deal as casino offering expands

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Online gambling company Full Tilt has enhanced its casino games offering by linking up with live dealer gaming specialist Evolution Gaming.

Evolution has launched a dedicated live casino environment, created by the company’s Riga studios in Latvia, for Full Tilt customers.

Players will be able to access the three live blackjack tables and one live roulette table across a variety of platforms, including Windows and Macintosh systems and iOS and Android mobile devices.

“Offering the best live casino has always been core to our strategy for Full Tilt and we have worked very hard with Evolution to create an environment that will be the very best product on the market,” said Sam Hobcraft, director of casino at the Rational Group, Full Tilt’s parent company.

“It will be offered to our customers through all channels, but we are particularly excited about the mobile product.”

A Full Tilt spokesperson added to TotallyGaming.com: “We believe that mobile is very important to Full Tilt. We want players to be able to enjoy our offerings wherever they are – whether that’s in front of their computer, on their couch, while travelling or wherever they want.

“We believe that our offering will be very high quality and attractive to players, and that’s why we are taking the time to get it right before launching it.”

The live casino environment will be staffed by more than 50 dedicated dealers, while customers will also have access to Evolution’s generic Live Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Casino Hold’em tables as well as Evolution’s VIP suite of live tables.

Sebastian Johannisson, head of account management at Evolution, added: “This is a notable launch in that Full Tilt is highly committed to live casino as part of its offer to today’s and tomorrow’s multi-channel online gaming market.”

The deal with Evolution marks the latest development by Full Tilt in the casino space, having initially made its name as an online poker platform.

In July 2013, Full Tilt announced that it would start offering casino products on its platforms, with some reports at the time even suggesting that its traditional Full Tilt Poker name could change to Full Tilt Gaming.

Since then, Full Tilt has struck deals with a number of casino game providers, including Quickspin, Leander Games, Amaya Gaming and Net Entertainment.

The Full Tilt spokesperson added to TotallyGaming.com: “We will certainly make appropriate announcements when or if we have additional news to share in this area, but we do not have anything additional to announce at this time.”
