Evolution Gaming has completed the initial roll-out of its live dealer roulette offering on electronic gaming machines across Latin America in partnership with Codere.

This is the first time that Evolution’s live dealer products have been repurposed for gaming machines and dependent on the success of the initial roll-out in Codere’s gaming halls, could be extended to other Codere venues in Latin America, as well as their possible introduction to European markets.

Commenting on the partnership Codere’s chief information officer Felipe Ludeña said he believed the Evolution offering would be “both a real crowd-puller and revenue-driver.”

“Their live content provides us with the perfect opportunity to gain first-to-market advantage in Latin America with games that are literally ‘as real as it gets’,” he explained.

Evolution chief executive Jens von Bahr said the launch of live roulette on gaming machines had always been part of the company’s strategy, adding that it would give the supplier access to “countless new players, who expect the most engaging and interactive content.”

“This initiative fits perfectly with our mission to deliver a flawless live casino experience across multiple channels and devices,” von Bahr continued. “This is another Evolution first, and one that redefines the quality and excitement of the gaming experience available on a gaming terminal screen.”
