Evolution adds scalable multi-player Bet Behind to its world’s fastest Live Blackjack

Evolution Gaming, the world leader in video-streamed Live Dealer gaming, has gone live with its latest addition to its world’s fastest online Live Blackjack that adds powerful Bet Behind functionality and multi-player scalability.

This latest enhancement means that a virtually unlimited number of online players can now join in the Live Blackjack game and ‘Bet Behind’ any of the players seated at the main seven seats at each Blackjack table.

The result, says Evolution’s UK Managing Director Helen Hedgeland, is, “significant and massively scalable extra revenue potential for licensees using our Blackjack tables.”

She added: “Bet Behind multiplies the excitement for players and, thanks to multi-player betting, adds up to a great deal more revenue potential for licensees.”

Hedgeland explains: “At peak times, some players are forced to watch the live game action while they wait for a seat to become available at their chosen Live Blackjack table. Now players can bet behind while they wait for one of the seven seats to become free. At the same time, players in the main seven seats can also bet behind any other seat or seats.”

She adds” “Hot players on winning streaks are highlighted with a gold medal and score indicators next to their name. Importantly, Bet Behind is unlimited in another respect – a waiting player can bet behind all seven players in the main seats if they choose, and a seated player can bet behind any or all other seated players. So at peak times there could potentially be hundreds of players ‘betting behind’ any one seat at the table.”

Low stakes for the Bet Behind spots also encourage new players to sample the excitement of the Live Blackjack tables.  

Bet Behind is available on all of Evolution’s Green Live Blackjack tables, initially on desktop and later on tablet and smartphone. Evolution says it can also add Bet Behind functionality to any of the branded dedicated Live Blackjack tables it operates on behalf of numerous major gaming brands.

The Bet Behind release follows the addition of 21+3 and Perfect Pair side bets, as well as Pre-Decision, to Evolution Live Blackjack earlier this year.
