Quebec lottery website LotoQuebec.com announced this week that they've signed a content deal with Evolution Gaming and will offer up the company's live dealer casino games on their site as a result.
The agreement will see live dealer games from Evolution's studio in Vancouver being provided to the lottery group's customers. Evolution games include high definition versions of table games such as blackjack, roulette, poker, and more. The province will be the second in Canada to offer the games, with British Columbia offering the titles through the BCLC.
To meet the needs of the province, the studio is expanding to offer some French language dealers as well as extra tables. The extra tables will be required, as Quebec is the second-largest province in Canada in terms of population, as it holds the cities of Montreal and
Evolution's James Stern spoke about the agreement, revealing: "The service we will be providing to lotoquebec.com underlines the flexibility of our Vancouver studio and our vast experience in the provision of Live Casino solutions. Our track record in providing native speaking dealer solutions is a key factor, with lotoquebec.com's French speaking presenter tables being a key USP when serving the province's predominantly French speaking population."
"We're thrilled to be launching Casino en direct!" said LotoQuebec.com Online Product Manager Sovanna Phan. "It's innovative, and a great addition to what we already offer our customers on lotoquebec.com. It fits hand in glove with our click-and-mortar strategy to engage with customers both online and face-to-face at our casinos." "We selected Evolution because we wanted a partner with the vision, innovation and capability to deliver localised, convergent solutions that will allow lotoquebec.com to deliver Live Casino in so many ways, to appeal to different players."
The games will go live later this month.
