Evolution Gaming’s Live Casino Demand Remains Strong During COVID-19 Pandemic
Companies around the world have been taking severe measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the leading providers of live casino services, Evolution Gaming, has published a press release reassuring the demand for the company’s products and highlighting precautionary measures which the company has taken during the global crisis. “Daily operations have been conducted without any large disturbances up until this point, and the demand for the company’s products continue to be strong”.
As land-based casinos around the world are shutting down in attempt to enforce social distancing by closing “nonessential businesses”, including all Las Vegas casinos as of March 18, online casinos remain open. In addition to that, Evolution states that many players opt to play at online casinos in the absence of betting games as many sports events have been cancelled as well. This brings us to Evolution’s state-of-the-art live casino tables, which may be the best alternative to land-based gaming for the majority of players around the world.
Evolution’s all studios in 8 locations have remained operational to until 20 March. The company is taking all necessary precautionary measures, including disinfection, distancing and separation of employees, temperature checks at studio entrances, increased cleaning, and hand hygiene. While the future remains uncertain in many ways, the epidemic is unlikely to affect their live casino offering in the near term. However, it’ll be a noteworthy achievement if the company manages to go ahead with their ambitious plan to release all 12 new games this year, including the highly anticipated live show game with a striking name: Crazy Time.
Martin Carlesund, CEO of Evolution Gaming, commented: “It is a turbulent time and it is inevitable that COVID-19 also impacts our business, but all employees are now doing a hard and fantastic job. Calm and methodical with the right decisions every day, we are slowly moving forward. We work in a precautionary manner and according to national guidelines to protect the health and safety of our employees. We have a strong financial position, and in the midst of all this, we experience a high demand for Live Casino. With the safety of our employees as priority, we are doing our utmost to continue delivering the market’s leading product”.
