Live casino specialist Evolution Gaming has installed a Dual Play Roulette convergence table at Genting Casino Manchester.

This installation follows the successful launch of Dual Play Roulette in September at Genting’s Resorts World Birmingham property, with more Dual Play launches expected across Genting’s UK estate in the near future.

Now live, the Manchester Dual Play table includes five HD cameras set in a triangular-shaped rig with three outward-facing screens. The table operates as a conventional roulette table, while the trio of screens relay the live game feed with remote players able to join on-premise players and play at the same table.

James Stern, Evolution’s director of business development and land-based sales, said the installation is designed to be “a star attraction on the main gaming floor.”

“It is this ability to bring together on-premise and online players so convincingly – at the same table set in a real live casino environment – that has made Evolution Dual Play such a hit with Genting customers,” he said.

“Evolution Dual Play really does offer the best of both worlds for our land-based and online customers,” added Rob Hoddinott, director of gaming product at Genting UK. “We’ve seen how our Evolution Dual Play table at Resorts World Birmingham delivers a truly convergent solution that is hugely popular with players, both on-premise and online.

“Players have seized the opportunity to play online at the table and enjoy the Genting Casino experience when they are unable to make it to Resorts World to play in person.”

Hoddinott concluded: “The screens draw people over to the table and are a great way to promote the fact that players can continue to be part of the live game when they get home or to their hotel room.”

COMMENT: This Manchester deal reaffirms the success of Evolution’s Genting roll-out in the UK and continues to establish the in-venue version of live dealer table gaming despite the huge growth in remote studios. Expect more of this, not least in the UK and featuring Evolution, and expect it to do well.
