Founded in 2006, Evolution Gaming has carved a name as the biggest live casino game provider. This aggregator powers some of the best live casinos in the European and American iGaming markets.
With that in mind, Evolution announced the launch of its third state-of-the-art studio in the US on July 22, 2021. According to the game developer, the studio will serve live casino players in Michigan state.
First and foremost, sports betting and online casino gambling officially went live in the Wolverine State in January 2021. As expected, it didn't take long for Evolution to pounce on this golden opportunity.
Evolution announced that it had acquired an operating license from the MGCB (Michigan Gaming Control Board) to offer its live casino verticals.
Following the move, Evolution was quick to launch its live studio in Michigan, which happens to be the company's third across the country. Also, the studio is the first of its kind in Michigan and will serve the state's live casino players.
It's vital to note also that Evolution has other live studios in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Like these studios, the Michigan studio uses Evolution's advanced technology to provide players with an in-class live gaming experience.
According to Evolution's Commercial Director North America, Jeff Millar, launching the Michigan studio is a significant landmark in the company's US growth. To prove its commitment, he quickly pointed out the launch of its NetEnt brand games on multiple operators in January.
He didn't stop there; Jeff Millar said Evolution is over the moon to become Michigan's first live casino provider. He commented that the company's primary objective is to entertain and excite gamers as well as help operators maximize their opportunities.
To sum it up, the Evolution representative said that the brand-new Michigan studio is indeed the biggest and well-equipped studio in the US online gaming market. Remember, the launch of the Michigan studio takes the number to eleven worldwide.
Want to have a sneak peek of the new purpose-built Michigan live casino studio? For starters, all Evolution's live games are available to players on desktop, smartphone, or tablet. Also, there are up to nine licensed online casino and sportsbook operators in Michigan currently. They include:
Players can now enjoy Evolution's entertaining titles such as Standard Blackjack, Infinite Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, and Auto Roulette with these Michigan operators. And that's not to mention that more verticals are in the pipeline for Michigan players.
After the studio launch, most Michigan live casino players will be itching to get a feel of Gonzo's Treasure Hunt. Released in June 2021, Gonzo's Treasure Hunt Live is a remake of the all-time popular Gonzo's Quest by NetEnt.
This game prides itself in offering the first-ever unique blend of slots-style and live casino gameplay. As if that's not enough, it's the first live casino game to provide players with the much-touted VR (Virtual Reality) mode.
In the gameplay, players meet a live dealer and an animated Gonzo character who will guide them through the game. Then, players place a wager on the type of stones they want to find. There are up to six differently colored stones, with each having a different payout. Note, however, that the higher the stone value, the more challenging to find it.
Meantime, the VR mode immerses players into a fantastic world of Gonzo. Here, one needs a VR headset and controller to enjoy the stunning 360-degree gameplay. Sounds exciting? Please give it a go!
