Video Poker Live in North America

15th May 2024 – Evolution has gone live with Video Poker Live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, allowing US players to play an authentic version with five paytables with a real set of cards.

15th May 2024 – Press Release

Evolution today announced the eagerly awaited go-live of its innovative video poker online casino game in the United States, now streaming to players in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The game, which allows Poker fans to play up to 100 hands at once and choose from five paytables, is an online recreation of the hugely popular Video Poker terminal games that came to prominence in the 1980s. First Person Video Poker, the RNG version of the game, impressively 3D-animated and featuring a ‘GO LIVE’ button, is now available for players in New Jersey and West Virginia.

Evolution’s Video Poker promises the ultimate fusion of nostalgia and modern gaming technology, offering a familiar appeal for older players and a fresh Poker experience for new generations. Sleek, retro graphics combine with thrilling gameplay to provide an exhilarating challenge to players. Firstly, they can choose which one of five paytables suits their level of skill and experience. Secondly, if they think they’ve got what it takes, they can put themselves to the test and play up to 100 hands at once!

Jacob Claesson, Evolution CEO for North America, said:

”Whilst our online Video Poker is already live in Europe and other regions and doing very well indeed, this game has been designed with the US market very much in mind. As such, we are expecting it to make a big impact with an online audience right across North America. Also, with the highest RTP (Return To Player) of all our Poker games, we have found that the game is incredibly effective in attracting new players.”

He added:

“What’s fascinating is that Video Poker was originally such a massive hit back in the day on gaming terminals. Now we’ve completely reinvigorated the game for the 21st century. Our First Person RNG version of this game faithfully brings that retro gaming experience into the modern age. And then we have our live version, which brings a live dealer and real-time gameplay to the table and adds an exciting new dimension to the fun!”

LiveCasinoComparer Comment

This is great news for US players and a great conversion tool for Evolution, as it will attract players unfamiliar with Live Casino Games who are curious to see what Live Video Poker is.

Alongside slots, video poker is a leading game in US land-based casinos, so I expect the uptake to be better than we’ve seen in the UK and Europe.

About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?

Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?

Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?

Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?

Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?

After all that, would I play there regularly?
