The numbers definitely look to be fantastic for Evolution and no wonder really when over the past year we've read here at CL news section of so many new deals they were able to sign all across the world whether those have been on a new markets for them or at already concurred ones.

But they are definitely top of the charts in their respective sector which is a live dealer gaming.

I like Evolution Live very much.
But, the betting times are too short in most of table. It should be at least 20 seconds or more.

Do you think that's on purpose to give the house advantage while players should place stakes on a hurry or it's just not a very well considered feature from their side?

It is almost guaranteed to be because they want to push through more hands per hour. More hands per hour equals more profit. That is the big drawback of live dealer games from a casino operator's point of view: they are much slower than RNG games because they have to wait for all the players at the table to perform each action.
