Evolution launches second William Hill live studio in Riga

12 February 2015

Live dealer specialist Evolution Gaming has launched a second live casino environment for UK bookmaker William Hill at its studio facility in Riga, Latvia.

Devoted to the William Hill brand, the new environment went live on February 9 and will initially feature one live roulette table and one live blackjack table – both of which will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The live dealer services will be accessible via desktop, tablet or smartphone.

This will be the second William Hill-branded environment to have been opened by Evolution in Riga, with the first service offering live dealer roulette, blackjack, baccarat, casino hold’em and three-card poker.

“This is a natural next step for us, as we continue to tailor our online services to different customer segments,” William Hill’s head of live casino and Vegas, Kevin Kilminster, said.

“The new live tables, complete with a dedicated dealer team in Vegas-styled clothing, as well as a dedicated floor and promotions manager, are central to the distinctive Vegas service, which is designed to appeal to new player types and demographics.”

Sebastian Johannisson, head of account management at Evolution, added: “William Hill was one of the first operators to take a dedicated environment at our studios back in 2011.

“At each step we have earmarked additional floor space in line with the client’s long-term business plan.

“We are delighted that, once again, this client is extending its dedicated live casino operations to serve growing player demand and to maximise the exciting potential of highly branded and targeted online gaming services.”
