Evolution launches exclusive Live Caribbean Stud Poker

[PR] Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, today extends its Live Casino games offering with the launch of an exclusive online version of Caribbean Stud Poker.

Created in partnership with Games Marketing, Evolution’s Live Caribbean Stud Poker is the only online live version of this hugely popular poker game available from a major licensed Live Casino provider.

As well as providing an exclusive attraction for Evolution licensees and their end users, the launch is notable as the first licensed game to be released under the terms of the agreement between Evolution and Games Marketing that was signed earlier this year. It is also the first game with Evolution’s new User Interface. The new UI has been developed to optimise the user view and gameplay across all devices while also providing HD video stream support.

The first release of Live Caribbean Stud Poker is available to players on desktop and smartphones. Rollout to tablets is scheduled to follow shortly.

Live Caribbean Stud Poker is highly scalable and allows a virtually unlimited number of players to take part in any single game. Adding to the excitement of the main game is an optional 5+1 Bonus side bet giving the players more chances to win with payouts of up to 1,000 to 1. In Q1 2016 the game will be further enriched with the addition of a Progressive Jackpot optional side bet.

Chris Reynolds, CEO at Games Marketing, commented: “When we announced our strategic agreement with Evolution in June 2015, I made it clear that I expect it to become our most valuable deal in the live dealer space. The launch of Evolution Live Caribbean Stud Poker is a very exciting and significant step on that journey.”

Todd Haushalter, CPO of Evolution Gaming, added: “Caribbean Stud Poker ushered in a new era of table games when it first launched over 20 years ago. Today it is the most widely known specialty table game in the world and we are thrilled to have it as part of our product portfolio. Having game variety makes the transition from a land-based casinos to playing live online seamless for players. With the addition of the new 5+1 Bonus side bet, and soon the progressive jackpot, Evolution is sure to provide yet another competitive advantage for its licensees.”
