Evolution Gaming is a live dealer streaming platform and is the closest I’ve seen to bringing the excitement of a traditional brick and mortar casino into your home. The charm comes from the professionally trained dealers which you can tell take pride in interacting with the players and enjoying themselves. Other platforms pale in comparison as I’ve seen many a live dealer have this look of boredom with a disinterest in engaging with the players.
In fact, even when there aren’t many players at the table, the live dealers at Evolution Gaming are happy to joke around and converse with the people who are just watching. This liveliness from the dealers really makes the environment a joy to experience and certainly sets the standard for other live dealer platforms and are completely compatible with mobile devices.
Evolution Gaming uses the same set of blackjack rules for all of their tables regardless of which partner casino the games are featured on. The only differences with each table are the betting limit ranges, dedicated (branded tables), overall theme including table color, number of live dealers during a session and so forth.
The rules are as follows:
With these rules in mind, the house edge comes out to be 0.73%. The 21+3 side bet house edge is 6.29% and the Pairs side bet house edge is 4.10%. They also provide a feature called pre-decision where you can, similarly to poker, make a decision while waiting for your turn to speed things up.
Blackjack Party has the same rules as regular blackjack, however, the presentation is more like a TV set with a dealer and a co-host creating a much more lively experience. This dynamic, along with the pumping music and bubbly chat makes for a chilled and fun environment.
These are generally low stakes (£0.50 – £25) tables with 7 seats available although an unlimited amount of viewers are allowed to bet behind any player they choose.
