Belgium’s A-Licence holders go live from Evolution’s new studio at Casino de Spa

[NEWS] Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, today launches its new live studio within Belgium’s historic Casino de Spa.

Following a four-month implementation, the brand-new, state-of-the-art studio is now being used by the majority of Belgium’s A-Licence holders to stream Live Casino games to players in Belgium’s regulated online gaming market.

A-Licence operators going live with their new Spa-based Live Casino services include bwin, Unibet, 777, Circus, Starcasino and Napoleon Games. All will stream live dealer Roulette and Blackjack plus Auto Slingshot Roulette from the Spa studio between 18:00 and 02:00, seven days a week. In addition, Gaming1, the market’s principle Class B provider, will stream Auto Slingshot Roulette from the same studio area.

Outside of the Spa studio’s operating hours, the Belgium Live Casino service will be supported by live table games streamed from Evolution’s central studios in Latvia and Malta.

Jens von Bahr, CEO at Evolution Gaming, commented: “We’re naturally very excited to open our fifth studio in Europe – and we’re enormously proud to have been able to integrate the studio within such a famous and historic venue. Belgian players now have access to fully compliant Live Casino games on their desktop, tablet and smartphone, with all of the live tables served by French and Dutch native speaking dealers. It’s a world-class service with a distinctive local flavour.”

Emmanuel Mewissen, CEO of Circus Group and owner of Casino de Spa, added: “By working with the world leader in Live Casino we have created a fantastic facility here. That it is now the online Live Casino operational base for virtually all of Belgium’s A-Licence operators is proof of the sheer quality of the deployment.”

Casino de Spa opened in 1763 and is thought to be the world’s oldest casino. The town of Spa, situated in a valley in the Ardennes, is also famous as the original site of curative natural spring waters.
