Stockholm-listed supplier Evolution Gaming has signed an agreement to launch an online live dealer casino for London’s Hippodrome Casino, as well as a 'Live from the Hippodrome' feed for its network of operator partners.

The Hippodrome’s own live casino will be built around Evolution’s generic live tables, located at the supplier’s Riga studios, with a Dual Play Roulette table to be sited within Lola’s, The Hippodrome’s underground casino.

The Dual Play Roulette table will allow online players on desktop, tablet and smartphone to play with players seated at the same Lola’s table.

The table will also be made available as a 'Live from the Hippodrome' feed to Evolution’s other licensees.

“The Hippodrome is a powerful and highly recognisable brand in the gaming and entertainment world,” said George Constantinou, director of online operations at The Hippodrome Casino. “This exciting initiative with Evolution will enable players to play not only at our historic destination casino, but to actually play online at a real table set amidst the unique and pulsating atmosphere of Lola’s.”

Jens on Bahr, CEO and co-founder at Evolution Gaming, commented: “This is another major step in our land-based and convergence strategy - a step that will both enrich the gaming experience for online players and expand the services available to all Evolution licensees.

“Existing and new Hippodrome and Lola’s patrons will be able to experience the thrill of playing at this historic venue’s tables from virtually any location, even when they are not able to visit the venue in-person.”

Shares in Evolution Gaming Group AB (Co. Data) (STO:EVO) were trading up 0.39 per cent at SEK257.50 per share in Stockholm early Wednesday.
