Evolution Gaming Software & 221 Online Casinos Reviewed

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
 

Evolution offers both standard baccarat and the Nepal variant (where a winning Banker total of six pays 1 to 2) of commission-free baccarat. Both games use the standard eight decks. The tie bet may pay 8 or 9 to 1, according to the preference of the operator. They also offer a host of side bets. It is up to the operator, which games and side bets to offer.

As a reminder, here is the house edge of the primary bets in baccarat:

  • 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%.
  • Tie: Pays 9 to 1. House edge of 4.84%.

In commission-free baccarat, the Banker bet has a house edge of 1.46% while the odds for the Player and Tie are the same.

Next, here is a list of the side bets available to the operator.

  • Player pair: Pays 11 to 1. House edge of 10.36%.
  • Banker pair: Pays 11 to 1. House edge of 10.36%.
  • 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%.
  • Super 6: Pays 16 to 1. House edge of 8.43%. Available for commission-free baccarat only.
  • Perfect Pair. They follow what I can "version 2," which pays 25 for one Perfect pair and 200 for two. House edge of 8.05%.
  • Player Bonus/Banker Bonus: This is what are called the Dragon Bonus in land casinos. House edge of 2.65% on the Player Bonus and 9.37% on the Banker Bonus.

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 with a 10 up, but does with an ace. The player will lose the total amount if the dealer gets a blackjack starting with a 10 up.
  • Penetration of 50%.

The house edge under these rules is 0.72%.

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 7), following the 100-40-30-10-5 pay table (starting with suited trips). House edge of 3.70%.

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

The following table shows the Blackjack games available in alphabetical order.

Infinite Blackjack


Infinite Blackjack
 

Infinite Blackjack is a form of blackjack that can, in theory, be played by an infinite number of players. All players make decisions based on the same cards. The dealer keeps dealing cards as long as somebody is still taking them. If a player stands, then any cards dealt after that point won't matter for him. The rules seem to be as follows:

  • Eight decks
  • Dealer peeks for blackjack
  • Dealer stands on soft 17
  • Player may double on any initial two cards
  • Double after split not allowed
  • Player may split once only
  • No surrender
  • Six-card Charlie

For those who don't know, the six-card Charlie rule means that if the player gets to six cards without busting, then he automatically wins. Unlike how it is usually done, this rule applies to each hand after splitting, but I think the effect of that twist is negligible.

Before considering the six-card Charlie rule, my blackjack house edge calculator shows a house edge of 0.61%. My effect of rule variations page shows the normal six-card Charlie rule is worth 0.16% to the player. So, my overall house edge is 0.61% - 0.16% = 0.45%. The game help file claims a house edge of 0.49%. You can decide who to believe.

The game also has the following four side bets:

  • Hot 3 — This bet is similar to the Lucky Lucky. It pays based on the player's initial two cards and the dealer's up card. Going by the 1-2-4-20-100 pay table I saw, the house edge is 5.40%.
  • Any Pair — This is what most land casinos call the Pair Square. They pay 8 to one for an unsuited pair and 25 to 1 for a suited pair. House edge is 4.10%.
  • 21+3 — The 5-10-30-40-100 pay table is followed for a house edge of 3.70%.
  • Bust It — This is the same premise as what land casinos call Buster Blackjack. Evolution follows a 1-2-9-50-100-250 pay table. I assume the dealer always hits out, even if the dealer gets a blackjack. House edge of 6.18%.

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.

Dragon Tiger

I'm told that Dragon Tiger is available as an optional game, according to the preference of casino management. The game offers the following bets:

  • Dragon — House edge of 3.73%.
  • Tiger — House edge of 3.73%.
  • Tie — Pays 11 to 1 — House edge of 10.36%.
  • Suited Tie — Pays 50 to 1 — House edge of 13.98%.

Dream Catcher


Dream Catcher
 

Dream Catcher is similar to Big Six, but involves multipliers. I wrote a entire page on Dream Catcher with all the rules and analysis. The executive summary is the best bet is on $10, at a house edge of 3.42%, and the worst is on the $40 at 9.19%, both ignoring the maximum win of $500,000, which as a minimal effect on small initial bets.

Caribbean Stud Poker


Caribbean Poker
 

Standard Caribbean Stud Poker rules are followed, except a royal flush pays 200 instead of 100. This lowers the house edge from the usual 5.22% by 0.01% to 5.21%.

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%.

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.
