Evolution Gaming Review

Introduction

The Evolution Games live dealer casino in Latvia is the most professional I have ever seen online. The dealers are all well-trained and speak English fluently. In the games like Three Card Poker, where lots of players can bet on the same hand, the dealers keep things moving along fast. In blackjack, where each player has his own hand, the dealers are especially engaging with the players. You don't even need to play, they will chat with people just watching.

Another thing I like about the Evolution Gaming dealers is they don't shake the players down for tips. In fact, I don't think it is even possible to tip.

Rules followed by Evolution Gaming are standard. The proprietary games like Ultimate Casino Hold 'Em and Casino Hold 'Em appear to be legitimately licensed, as evidenced by the signage and lack of a name change. This is something I applaud, because most Internet casinos just steal proprietary games under the ruse of changing the name.

It can be difficult to tell which casinos offer a live dealer casino by Evolution Gaming. Sometimes, especially in the case of common-domain games like blackjack, baccarat, and roulette, you can tell because the screen will say "Evolution Gaming" as the game loads. With propriety games, which are dealt in a separate room, and the dealers wear different outfits, it is harder to tell. You can which proprietary games Evolution offers via their web site.

Baccarat


Baccarat @ Betsafe
 

The standard baccarat rules are followed using an eight-deck shoe. Depending on the table there could be a wide variety of side bets to choose from. Here is a list of the available bets I have seen at Evolution Gaming tables and the house edge. Not every bet is available on every table.

  • Player: Pays 1 to 1. House edge of 1.24%.
  • Banker: Pays 0.95 to 1. House edge of 1.06%.
  • Tie: Pays 8 to 1. House edge of 14.36%.
  • Player pair: Pays 11 to 1. House edge of 10.36%.
  • Banker pair: Pays 11 to 1. House edge of 10.36%.
  • Big: Pays 0.54 to 1 if the total cards are five or six. House edge of 4.35%.
  • Small: Pays 3 to 2 if the total cards are four. House edge of 5.27%.
  • Perfect pair (version 1): Pays 25 to 1 if the first two cards of a chosen hand (Player or Banker) are the same in rank and suit. House edge of 13.03%.
  • Perfect pair (version 2): Same as version 1, except pays 250 of both Player and Banker have a perfect pair. House edge of 6.62%.
  • Either pair: Pays 5 to 1 if either the first two Player cards or first two Banker cards form a pair. House edge of 13.71%.


By coincidence, or not, these are the same side bets and pays that Playtech offers in baccarat.

Blackjack


Blackjack 1

Blackjack 2

Following are the blackjack rules:

  • Eight decks.
  • Blackjack pays 3 to 2.
  • Dealer stands on soft 17.
  • Player may double on any initial two cards.
  • Double after split allowed.
  • No surrender.
  • Player may split once only (no re-splitting).
  • Although the dealer takes a hole card, he doesn't peek for a blackjack. The player will lose the total amount if the dealer gets a blackjack.

The house edge under these rules is 0.73%.

Card counters may be interested to know far into the shoe the dealer deals. The penetration is 50%.

There are also a couple of side bets as follows:

  • Perfect Pairs, following the 25-12-6 pay table. House edge of 4.10%.
  • 21+3 (version 5), following the 100-40-25-10-5 pay table (starting with suited trips). House edge of 6.29%.

For more information, please see my page on blackjack side bets in general or my page specifically on 21+3.

Casino Hold 'Em


Casino Hold 'Em
 

Casino Hold 'Em follows the standard rules. Many players bet on a single hand but each has his own free will in the fold/raise decision.

The Ante follows the most common 100-20-10-3-2 pay table, for a house edge of 2.16%. The Bonus Bet, normally called the AA+ in land casinos, follows the 10-50-40-30-20-7-7-7-7 pay table for a house edge of 6.26%.

I would like to give due credit to Evolution Gaming for correctly paying according to the Ante pay table when the dealer doesn't qualify, unlike Realtime Gaming, who incorrectly pay 1 to 1 only on all player hands.

Three Card Poker


Three Card Poker
 

The standard Three Card Poker rules are followed. Lots of players bet on the same hand, each making his own fold/raise decision, so the game moves fast.

The Ante Bonus follows the usual 1-4-5 pay table for a house edge on the Ante bet of 3.38%.

The Pairplus follows a 1-4-5-30-40-100 pay table, which I have never seen before, for a house edge of 4.49%.

The 6 Card Bonus follows a 7-10-15-20-100-200-1000 pay table for a house edge of 8.56%.

Roulette


Immersive Roulette
 

The roulette game looks to be single zero. Player loses everything on an even money bet if the ball lands in zero. House edge on every bet is 2.70%.

Shake the Plate

Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em


Ultimate Texas Hold Em
 

Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em follows the standard rules. Many players bet on the same hand so the game moves quickly. Each player has his own free will on when to raise or fold.
