Full Tilt has expanded its casino games offering with the launch of a live dealer casino. The games are available from the online poker client alongside existing traditional casino game offerings.
At “live dealer” online casinos, players watch and can interact with the live action while placing bets and making decisions via an online interface. For the launch, Full Tilt’s has created an exclusive casino space with three blackjack tables and one roulette table. All aspects of the experience—from the dealer uniforms to the cards and felt—are Full Tilt designed and branded.
The new product is powered by Evolution Gaming, a leader in live dealer casinos. Along with the Full Tilt-exclusive tables, players can also join the generic games ran by the Evolution network, including Baccarat and Casino Hold’em. There is also a “VIP suite” for highrollers. All the action takes place from Riga, Latvia.
“This is a notable launch in that Full Tilt is highly committed to Live Casino as part of its offer to today’s and tomorrow’s multi-channel online gaming market,” said Sebastian Johannisson, Head of Account Management at Evolution.
The Rational Group online poker room has been aggressively expanding into the wider igaming space this year. It first launched in-house developed blackjack and roulette in January and partnered with multiple content providers to offer a mix of slots games.
New owners Amaya are also considering adding sports betting to its online poker brands.
Full Tilt’s casino games are still limited to a few key markets, including the UK. Only the Windows client currently supports the new games, though Mac and mobile support is expected in the future.
