AGLC (Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis) have officially launched six live online casino games through Play Alberta. The offering is the result of a recent partnership with Swedish company Evolution Gaming, the world’s number one live casino provider.
The live games are now available to play on PlayAlberta.ca website. The regulated, online gambling site is available to Albertans over the age of 18 and physically located within the province’s borders.
Play Alberta already offered a wide array of gaming options, including a variety of casino-style games and instants. However, the link up with Evolution provides six live dealer games including Roulette, Infinite Blackjack, Baccarat and Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
The games will be accessible on desktop, tablet and smartphone. It is hoped, that if successful, yet more games will be made available in the coming months.
Live Casino Gaming
Multi-award-winning Evolution Gaming is the world leader in video-streamed Live Dealer gaming. As a result of this agreement, Play Alberta will be able to deliver a flawless live gaming experience across multiple channels.
Evolution streams world-class Live Casino solutions from its state-of-the-art studios in Europe and from live studios located in actual casinos. This allows Play Alberta to offer real-time games playable on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, plus Live Casino TV show content and betting integration.
Games such as Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Casino Hold’em and Three Card Poker are essentially live and real. Meaning players are afforded an interactive online experience that is just like playing in a real casino.
The flexible platform also allows games to be customised specifically for individuals. This allows Play Alberta to create offerings aimed directly at Albertan players, such as their own dedicated tables and dealers.
The increasing growth of gaming in Canada reflects the rise in the availability of legal gaming options. These improved choices are a direct response to market demand as well as a change in consumer tastes and society’s attitudes to gambling.
Industry data from the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) highlight the significant impact of gaming on the Canadian economy.
- Largest segment of Canada’s entertainment Industry
- Supports more than 135,000 full time jobs
- Generates close to $9 billion annually, funding government and community programs and services
- CGA estimates Canadian gaming market is worth a staggering $14 billion
This consumer demand for gaming is the reason Play Alberta have partnered with Evolution Gaming. Their easily accessible live casino games offer Albertans the chance to play wherever and whenever they want.
Using Evolutions world leading expertise, Play Alberta offers Albertans the opportunity to discover the excitement of a Live Casino experience from the comfort of their own homes.
Technology drives gaming innovation
Technology is at the forefront of the gaming industry driving innovation as operators like Play Alberta aim to stay ahead in a competitive market.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain
These advanced technologies are used by online gambling platforms to ensure a secure and safe space for players.
By analyzing game data, Evolution and Play Alberta are able to optimize an individual players environment to meet that customer’s specific needs. This unique experience creates loyalty between the online operator and the customer.
The ability to access platforms wherever and whenever players desire, through smart devices and super-fast 5g, has broadened the possibilities of online gaming even further. With games now streamed in HD to player’s devices, the live casino experience allows players to interact with dealers via real-time chat functions.
This mimicking of the land-based casino experience creates a unique gaming involvement that would previously never have been thought possible. But this creation of new gaming choices through the use of technology, is a driving force behind the industry’s growth.
What games can you play live?
The linkup between Evolution Gaming and Play Alberta is initially for 6 live games, including Roulette, Infinite Blackjack, Baccarat, Lightning roulette, Ultimate Texas Hold’em and Baccarat Esqueeze. However, Play Alberta aim to increase this offering soon.
What can customers expect?
What exactly does a live casino experience feel like? Well, if you want to play Blackjack then this is what you can expect.
