Evolution announces new gambling games for online casinos in ranting and perhaps somewhat remarkable video.
Some of them are already live, such as the online slot Starburst XXXtreme, the long-awaited successor to the ‘classic’ Starburst. Check out the best Yoju casino 2023 online.
Other games will become available in the coming months, such as Lightning Blackjack – not surprising since Lightning Roulette is a big hit, after all.
The new games are discussed in the video by Todd Haushalter (1978), Evolution’s chief product officer. While watching the video, Yoju Casino was particularly surprised at times.
Only in blackjack do you have any influence on the game’s outcome during the game round. But the ‘boring’ part is in the payout: if you win, you win once. Or if you get an ace and a picture.
Evolution wants to get rid of that. Logical because it is an open secret that players from the so-called millennium generation find traditional casino games boring. Holland Casino hopes to solve that problem with the so-called NXT zones, which are interactive.
Evolution wants to convey that same interactive excitement with a new generation of games. Gambling should become less passive—more choices during the game, more surprise payouts.
Which games will Evolution launch in the coming year?
Developing Lightning Blackjack was a hell of a job, Haushalter says.
Lightning Roulette is all about multipliers, and Lighting Blackjack is no different. Lightning Roulette’s multiplier is linked to a number (0 to 36). In Lightning Blackjack, that’s a bit tricky.
Because in blackjack, if you start assigning a multiplier to certain playing cards, players will start focusing only on that. For instance, they split much more often and keep buying cards, hoping for a multiplier. At least, a trial version showed that.
The gameplay became an actual bloodbath and no longer remotely resembled blackjack.
Golden Wealth Baccarat
Asia is the biggest market for gambling games in the world, Haushalter says. And baccarat, he says, will always be “king of the hill” in that continent. Yoju Casino agrees, especially since he saw the rows of baccarat tables in casinos in Macau, each table busier than the next.
In Asia, players often walk past the baccarat tables with stacks of chips in their hands. They look at which trend is present on the table. Which outcomes fall a lot on which tables? Where does Player fall mostly, and Banker fall mostly? What patterns can be seen?
In online casinos, walking past the tables is not possible. But Evolution has now made sure that players can choose trends anyway. On the side of your screen, you can see what’s going on at other Evolution baccarat tables. So you can quickly switch easily to the trend of your choice. Handy.
But that’s not all, as Evolution also comes out with a brand new variant on baccarat: Golden Wealth Baccarat.
Playing live table games is something many people enjoy, but you often need to know the rules.
Many people don’t know them and are unsure about the best strategy for baccarat.
If baccarat is too intimidating, Evolution has a straightforward form of baccarat for you: Bac Bo. The name is a fusion of baccarat and the Chinese dice game Sic Bo.
The rules of Bac Bo are straightforward. You see two squares with two dice each. One is for the player, and the other belongs to the bank. The dice are rolled. The square with the highest number wins.
Evolution has taken even more inspiration from Asia, as we will soon be able to play Fan Tan online.
Fan Tan is an ancient Asian gambling game played with stones or, for example, coffee beans. The dealer grabs two hands of stones, places a metal cup over them, and then the stones are neatly laid out in four rows.
As a player, you guess whether the last row consists of one, two, three, or four stones.
Cash or Crash
Another creative addition to Evolution’s range is the game Cash or Crash. This is a live game show where you, the player, are in a virtual hot air balloon.
In a studio is a lotto machine with green and red balls in it. Constantly, balls are drawn.
If the ball is green, the balloon rises a little. And the higher you rise, the more you win. But beware, because if a red ball pops the balloon, you lose all your money. So getting out (and cashing out) is allowed at any time.
A complete Starburst series
Evolution bought slot provider Netent last year, and it acquired competitor Big Time Gaming (BTG) earlier this year. As a result, Evolution is now a major supplier of online slots, and its pipeline is filled with exciting innovations.
Starburst XXXtreme is just the beginning of a series of Starburst games, some more spectacular than others. ‘It’s going to be a kind of journey that we take players on.’
Book of Gonzo
Evolution is also working on its own ‘Book’ slot. By this, Haushalter refers to the trendy slots based on the Book of Ra. There are already numerous copycats and variants on the market; the best known is Book of Dead from Play’n Go.
Evolution does not want to make just any copycat. So instead, the company is developing a version with Gonzo, from the famous slot Gonzo’s Quest, as the protagonist.
Yoju Casino is already guessing that the slot’s name will be Book of Gonzo.
