Italian gambling regulator AAMS (Amministrazione Autonoma Monopoli di Stato) approved Evolution Gaming to become the first provider of Live Casino dealer services to the newly regulated online casinos in Italy.
Live Casino is the latest development in interactive online gambling which allows customers of Italian online casinos to speak to, hear and see the online casino dealer while playing online blackjack, roulette and baccarat. The customer will also be able to interact with other human players gambling at the online table via a computer camera and microphone.
According to online gambling news in Italy, the majority of online casinos display an animated wheel for online roulette and animated cards during online blackjack games.
A large segment of Italian brick-and-mortar casino gamblers refuse to play online due to a lack of faith in reliability of the computer generated result in online casinos in Italy. There is also a wide spread erroneous belief that online casino administrators are able to influence any game through a secret backend control panel.
The arrival of Live Casinos dealer provider in Italy will allows Italian online casino players to see the deal or the spin of the ball through a TV studio quality broadcast right on their home computer.
Online gambling providers licensed under the recent Italian gambling laws will now be able to offer live dealer services through Evolution Gaming.
Jens von Bahr, CEO of Evolution Gaming, commented: “The Italian certification is testament, once again, to the quality and integrity of our Live Casino product and further strengthens Evolution’s world-leading position in the live online gaming market.”
The company should be ready to begin offer services by mid July and already has a number of signed contracts to provide Live Casino games to a couple of online casinos in Italy. The company is currently holding interviews for native Italian speakers who are experienced casino dealers.
