Leading live casino provider Evolution Gaming have announced two new live table games: Free Bet Blackjack and 2 Hand Hold’em.
Both new games are part of Evolution’s growing lineup of “Infinite” games which allow an unlimited number of players to take part.
Free Bet Blackjack is similar to Evolution’s popular Infinite Blackjack, but also adds automatic Free Bets on selected double down and split bets.
The dealer deals a single hand which is played by all players. Newly developed software combines the real-life, in-studio cards with a player’s virtual cards for each individual player. After the first two player cards are dealt, online players can decide to play their hand just like they would normally, making their own individual betting decisions that have no impact on the play of other online players. Whenever their hand qualifies, Free Double Down bets on two-card hard 9, 10, 11 totals and Free Split bets on all pairs except 10s are automatically offered to the player. There are also four optional side bets — Any Pair, 21+3, Hot 3 and Bust It — and the Six Card Charlie rule.
Evolution has produced a new poker variant with 2 Hand Casino Hold’em, which also allows a (nearly) unlimited number of online players to take part. As the name suggests, the game features two separate hands dealt to both the house and the dealer. Players get the choice of playing one or two hands, and an optional AA Bonus bet. 2 Hand Casino Hold’em also features a fast pace that fits in more game rounds in each session (according to Evolution’s records, 70% more games are played in a session of 2 Hand Casino Hold’em than the standard Live Casino Hold’em game).
The two games will further solidify Evolution Gaming’s position as a leading provider of live table games for the online casino industry. Casinos reviewed by Live Casino Buzz that feature Evolution tables include LV BET, EnergyCasino, and No Bonus Casino.
In a written company statement, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said, “Our Free Bet Blackjack is based on one of the most popular modern varieties of Blackjack played in land-based casinos, so we are confident it will be a big hit with players.
“In 2 Hand Casino Hold’em, meanwhile, two hands for every player means a doubly entertaining experience with increased fun, betting options and chances to win. If the player loses their hand in standard poker then the game is over. With two hands, however, the fun and the suspense keep on coming!”
