The month of March is already shaping up nicely for Evolution Gaming and Canadian online live casino players. That’s after Evolution announced on March 16, 2021, that the Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited (CBN) and Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC) have settled on the firm to offer online live casino games on their national lottery venues.
After the new deal, CBN will provide Evolution Gaming’s exclusives, although subject to local laws in each jurisdiction with CBB lotteries. Gamers will have seamless access to Evolution-powered online live casino offerings via their laptops, mobile phones, and tablets.
Players in CBN lottery countries will enjoy Evolution’s live game catalog consisting of popular titles like Lightning Roulette, Crazy Time, and Mega Ball. Players will also access Evolutions live table game variants like Live Blackjack, Live Craps, European Roulette, and American Roulette. And yes, the deal will allow CBN to access all Evolution Gaming’s RNG-based first-person game titles.
Of course, both parties were over the moon after inking this lucrative deal that will see both companies expand their operations.
Craig Bascombe, CFO and President at CBN Limited, said that the company is really pleased to work with the industry leader in the Live Casino department. He added that Evolution boasts a proven track record around Europe, North America, and Canadian Lotteries, making them the front-runners for the lucrative project.
He said: “We feel sure that Evolution’s rich and varied mixed of online casino and entertainment-style games will be very popular indeed with our many millions of lottery players.”
Kfir Kugler, Evolution Gaming’s Regional Territory Manager, Latin America & Africa, also showered the deal with praises. He said the company is very proud to be selected by CBN Limited for the multi-country project to take its games to players in new markets.
Meanwhile, Evolution Gaming announced on the same date that AGLC (Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis) would debut its six live dealer games. The available game titles include Infinite Blackjack, Roulette, Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Baccarat. Even better for its B2B partners, plans are already underway to increase Evolution’s live game library in the months ahead.
With that said, Evolution live casino games are already available on A GLC’s PlayAlberta.ca website. This is a safe and regulated gambling site that’s playable by Albertans aged 18 and over. Like the CBN online live games, these games will be accessible via smartphones, tablets, and desktops.
Evolution’s Commercial Director, Jeff Millar, said the signing of the AGLC deal is another proud occasion for the company as it looks to dominate the Canadian market. He added that the company is committed to delivering top-quality online gaming products for Albertans in the most entertaining way possible.
Interestingly, AGLC is the third Canadian government-run lottery to offer Evolution’s live game portfolio. This is after previous successful launches for British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) and Loto-Quebec. Now, this brings the number to four after inking the CBN Limited deal. Overall, Evolution Gaming is making unmatched strides in the online live casino industry.
