Evolution Gaming Adds 2 New First Person GamesTia Winter | 17 July 2019
Both of the First Person titles are RNG-based versions of existing award-winning Evolution Gaming live casino games. Evolution’s Lightning Roulette won three awards in 2018 for Game of the Year. This was for the live dealer version, while Dream Catcher, which features a spinning money wheel and an entertaining presenter, received Digital Product of the Year at G2E Las Vegas in 2017, at the Global Gaming Awards.
The new First Person versions are now both available to online and mobile casino operators looking to add something totally different to their existing RNG line-ups.
In First Person Lightning Roulette the game revolves around an HD super-realistic – animated – Roulette table. The setting is electrifying, literally, with lightning effects flashing all over. In each round, one to five randomly generated Lucky Numbers will get struck by lightning, which gives you a random multiplier, anything from x50 to x500, which is applied.
The second game, First Person Dream Catcher, is easy to play. It is based on the large, multi-segmented spinning wheels of fortune commonly seen hanging vertically against walls in land-based casinos. The player simply places a bet on the numbered segment on which they believe the wheel will stop. The excitement here is escalated by x2 and x7 multiplier segments on the giant wheel.
Going Live Online
The significant feature in each of these two new releases – and what makes them special – is the Go Live button, which can be found in the User Interface of any Evolution Gaming First Person game. When the player presses this button, they are immediately transported from the First Person version they are playing, through an in-game portal to a live version. The transition is performed as seamlessly as possible, and the First Person mode has the same rules and easy-to-use interface as the live version.
Chief Product Officer at Evolution Gaming Todd Haushalter explained how their First Person Gaming range continues leveraging the latest technology. They did this to help their licensees build player loyalty, something he believes they are doing right across their online casino offering. Justifiably proud, he added that all their Evolution Gaming First Person titles are firstly, great games in their own right, featuring superior animation as well as gameplay. But by adding the Go Live button, these new titles depart from the average RNG counterparts. That button allows players to go far beyond, into the hugely entertaining world of Live Casino.
