EVOLUTION GAMING LAUNCH LIVE LUCKY WHEEL PRODUCT
And Progressive Jackpot added to exclusive Live Caribbean Stud Poker game.
Evolution Gaming’s latest offer is a new game category dubbed Live Lucky Wheel.
Dream Catcher, the first title in the new game category, offers an ‘immersive’ online live gaming experience that allows players to follow every phase of the wheel spin on their desktop, tablet or smartphone screens through a series of dynamic camera angles and close-ups.
The live dealer spins the wheel and interacts with players throughout each game. Players simply bet on the number they think the wheel will stop at, with payout odds corresponding to the winning numbers (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40) that appear in numerous segments of the wheel. Players can also place repeat bets for a selected number of game rounds using the Autoplay feature.
The super-sized vertical wheel with silver and gold 2x and 7x multiplier segments was created using a precision-engineered bespoke wheel and was built exclusively for Evolution by TCSJOHNHUXLEY.
“This is a momentous launch for us because Dream Catcher will expose live casino to players who don’t play table games and therefore don’t play live casino,” Todd Haushalter, chief product officer at Evolution, said. “There are millions of slot, bingo, and other players who we are reaching out to with this product.
“It is intentionally simple and friendly to play, and with the potential for the 2x and 7x multipliers to keep hitting sequentially, players can win thousands of times their initial bet, just like in slots”.
Other product launches include the addition of a Progressive Jackpot to Evolution’s exclusive Live Caribbean Stud Poker game.
Evolution’s Caribbean Stud Poker, created in partnership with Games Marketing, is the only online live version of this hugely popular poker game available from a major licensed Live Casino provider and the addition of the new Progressive Jackpot further differentiates the game and extends Evolution’s growing range of exclusive content.
The top-level Jackpot prize on offer is the Progressive Jackpot, which keeps growing in value until it is won with a Royal Flush. A second level of Jackpot prizes offers fixed-value payouts for poker hands below a Royal Flush — from Three of a Kind, through Straight, Flush, Full House and Four of a Kind, up to a Straight Flush paying Euro 2,500.
The Progressive Jackpot prize has been floated with an initial Euro 50,000 fund from Evolution. The prize fund then becomes progressively larger as a percentage of all Progressive Jackpot side bets placed on the Caribbean Stud Poker table goes into the Jackpot fund.
