Leading live dealer game provider Evolution has just launched new VIP baccarat and blackjack tables in Canada. The new deal with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation will bring the studio’s most exciting tables for online casino VIPs in Saskathcewan, Manitoba, and British Columbia. It marks a new era for live casino players in Canada, with the games streamed from Evolution’s high-tech Vancouver studio.
With this move, Evolution has tapped deeper into a market it was always fond of – North America. Its CCO Jeff Millar was delighted that the move happened, even though there was another one in place signed five years ago. The initial agreement with the BCLC was instrumental for Evolution’s reach in North America, and with the new one, it will attract not regular, but VIP live casino games players.

BCLC Welcomes Evolution’s VIP tables
BCLC’s portfolio already boasted impressive Evolution games. However, the new partnership allows it to tap into the VIP market with VIP roulette, VIP blackjack, and VIP baccarat. These games follow the structure and gameplay of any game in live casino format, but since they’re meant for VIP players, they come with higher wagering limits that only high rollers can spend.
In hindsight, it was a win-win move for all sides. Players from nearly all Canadian regions can now play Evolution’s top VIP tables, while the casino taps into a whole market for high rollers. Not that BCLC’s existing Evolution Gaming setup didn’t offer any games for these players. But, VIP tables are different than the rest, and now that they’re available in Canada, you can bet that they’ll appeal to the big-spending crowd.
The new games – including VIP Baccarat and VIP Blackjack – will stream from Evolution Gaming’s Vancouver studio. It is touted as one of the best in the operator’s possession, launched in 2018 on a 16,000 sq. ft area. Its sole purpose was to provide casino services for the BCLC, with only classic live blackjack, live roulette, and live baccarat games offered initially. Now that offer is enriched with the addition of their VIP counterparts which draw another crowd.
According to Monica Bohm, VP for eGaming at BCLC, the new deal expands its portfolio with unique, innovative products that a certain breed of players will love. It also ensures that BCLC always stays committed to improving its portfolio, which means it cares deeply for its players.
Continued Impressive Deals
The latest deal BCLC signed with Evolution on high-profile VIP tables isn’t the only one of its kind. Earlier in April, it signed a deal with Light and Wonder that also included a distribution agreement with ReelPlay. It essentially allowed ReelPlay to distribute its games via BCLC, effectively tapping into the North American market.
The first game that made it to BCLC’s portfolio under this deal was Hypernova Megaways. More games are expected to be added in the future, and players have expressed delight at the partnership. We’re sure the same will happen under the new Evolution deal.
