Evolution Gaming is one of the main players in the eGaming industry, having been in operation since 2006. Headquartered in Sweden, Evolution Gaming has a presence in several countries across Europe and branched out into the North American market in 2018, opening its first US-based live casino studio in New Jersey. Evolution Gaming is also the parent company of NetEnt, NetEnt Casino and Red Tiger Gaming, all of which the firm acquired in 2020. Other gaming brands owned by the company include Ezugi, which offers a complementary core live casino service, and Big Time Gaming, a leading innovator in slots and game mechanics. Evolution Gaming employs around 10,000 people across Europe and North America and serves an international customer base of more than 500 operators. The firm is now a public company, listed on the NASDAQ Stockholm.
Evolution Gaming casino games cover almost every section of the market. The company is known for its live casino games, including Monopoly Live and Deal or No Deal Live, as well as more traditional table games such as Live Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat. If you love slots, you’ve probably played a few Evolution Gaming games. The firm is behind some of the best-loved slots on the market, including Starburst, Reel Rush and Twin Spin.
The company partners with most of the top-tier operators in the casino business, so it’s highly likely that you’ll find Evolution Gaming games in your favorite casino. Partners include Betfair, 888 Casino, Betsson, DraftKings, LeoVegas, William Hill, and many more. As Evolution Gaming casino games can be found in casinos across the globe, it’s no surprise that the firm is licensed and regulated by multiple governing bodies in a range of jurisdictions. Certifying bodies for Evolution Gaming include the UK Gambling Commission, the Malta Gaming Authority, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, and the Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey.
In 2021, the firm was named Online Casino Supplier of the Year for the third year running at the virtual Global Gaming Awards. Those same awards saw the firm taking the prize for the Product Launch of the Year for its Divine Fortune Megaways slot machine game (released under the NetEnt brand), and the Casino Product of the Year for Gonzo’s Quest Megaways (under the Red Tiger brand). 2021 also saw the firm taking no fewer than five awards home from the EGR B2B Awards, where it swept the board to win:
- Live Casino Supplier of the Year (for the 12th year running)
- Innovation in RNG Casino Software Award
- Innovation in Slot Provision Award
- Mobile Gaming Software Supplier of the Year Award
- Mobile Supplier of the Year Award
Given this sort of track record, there is little doubt that the firm has won the respect of key players in the industry and is highly thought of by suppliers, peers, and end users. With new online casino games set to be released soon and new partnerships always being forged, it’s reasonable to assume that Evolution Gaming will continue to be a key industry leader for many years to come.
