Evolution Gaming Demand Remains Steady

Casino live dealer software group Evolution Gaming has posted an update, stating that demand for their games has remained strong despite the outbreak of Covid-19, which has resulted in many land-based casinos closing for the time being.

Evolution says that they actually have seen increased demand for their live dealer games in recent weeks, as punters stay home and gamble on their computers. There has also been a migration of those who wager on sports coming to play casino games, due to the cancellation of events throughout the globe.

While Evolution's studios remain open, the company says that they're checking temperatures of staff at each entrance, sanitising surfaces, and maintaining distances between staff members.

Speaking about the situation Evolution CEO Martin Carlesund noted: "It is a turbulent time and it is inevitable that Covid-19 also impacts our business, but all employees are now doing a hard and fantastic job. Calm and methodical with the right decisions every day, we are slowly moving forward.

"We work in a precautionary manner and according to national guidelines to protect the health and safety of our employees. We have a strong financial position, and in the midst of all this, we experience a high demand for live casino.

"With the safety of our employees as priority, we are doing our utmost to continue delivering the market's leading product."

This sounds pretty good, but what will they do when the countries where the studios are go under lockdown? Sounds like they'd be forced to close.

Yeah, it possibly can be very good for all the online casinos and providers, etc, to a certain extent.

I think that's the saving grace for a lot of these land casinos that also have an online presence. At least they have a way to still make some revenue to hopefully stabilize things a bit while their doors are closed.

I mean, think about this- in these companies they have several hundred of employees to cover all shifts, as the casino work never stops- imagine if all of us are asked to work from home and practice social distancing, then people who work in environments like this aren't really protected. Of course I understand that the demand is still there with people having more time on their hands, but I really hope that they take all the actions needed to keep their employees safe and without reducing work force.
