Evolution Gaming Adds Side Bets

Evolution Gaming is adding additional side bet options to its white label blackjack software. The live dealer software provider has incorporated Perfect Pairs and 21+3 side bets, which will go live with the company’s licensees from the end of the month.

The new side bet options will be able to be activated and deactivated by players every time they sit at a table, and offer the chance for winnings of up to one hundred times the initial stake.

The aim of Perfect Pairs is for players to find a match for their card with another of the same suit, colour or number. In 21+3 the player’s aim is to create card combinations similar to those that occur in a game of poker. The player matches their first two cards with the dealer’s up card.

Fredrik Bjurle, Evolution’s Director of Product explains “Perfect Pairs and 21+3 add extra levels of playability and more ways to try to beat the dealer. At the same time, these side bets add extra game interest even for players who want to stick to the main bet. The new feature will be rolled out across all of Evolution’s blackjack tables, in a bid to reinforce the game’s status as “the fastest, most realistic and most endlessly engaging live dealer Blackjack game available online

Side bets are becoming an increasingly popular feature across different online casino software offerings and are an ideal way to keep players interested and engaged and also help drive additional revenue streams for casinos. Evolution has been developing and rolling out new side bet functionality in roulette and slots games as well as the latest Blackjack development.
