Live dealer software provider Evolution Gaming has had its Dream Catcher game named Digital Game of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards 2017.
The Dream Catcher game is a money wheel, wherein players pick a number or color. The wheel is then spun and the results are paid out. Like all other Evolution games, Dream Catcher is live broadcast from a studio, giving players the chance to get a land casino experience from the comfort of their home. The award was given at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas as Part of the Global Gaming Expo.
Speaking about the award Evolution Gaming Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said, "Creating a 24/7 live game show is something completely new, and we believe fresh concepts like this are a must if we want to expand Live Casino to a wider audience. Attention spans are growing shorter, and the desire to be entertained is greater so we wanted to do something that would be relevant to a YouTube watching audience because in many ways that is our competition for player's time."
"Dream Catcher is a fun, easy to play game and, of course, it's live - players can just pick up their smartphone or tablet and get involved in the live action any time they like. And with the potential for the 2x and 7x multiplier segments on the wheel to keep hitting sequentially, there's the chance for players to win thousands of times their initial bet, just like in slots."
