Danish speakers and online gaming fans in Denmark have good reason to be thankful that software and platform creator Evolution got into bed with Danske Spil, the state-owned gambling company. The only legal gambling provider in Denmark from 1948 to 2012, Danske Spil faced stiff competition after the laws were relaxed four years ago to allow more online casinos to enter the market.
While the state-owned enterprise is still the only entity legally allowed to offer non-casino games of luck in Denmark, such as Bingo, scratch cards and various lotteries, a number of major players offering casino slots and table games appeared to compete against Danske Spil. This is why, shortly after the change in the law, the Danish gaming company commissioned Evolution to create a live gaming platform for Danske Spil.
‘Evolution to Create Danske Spil Platform’ Welcomed
The headline announcing: ‘Evolution to Create Live Gaming Platform for Danske Spil’ was exciting news for Danish gamers in late 2013. Founded in 2006, Evolution Gaming had spent seven years revolutionising the live-dealer format for European online gaming sites.
By putting together a team of Danish-speaking software developers, Evolution was able to create a live gaming platform for Danske Spil that combined exciting graphics and sound effects, brightly coloured layouts and simple, intuitive gaming controls.
In July 2014, when the site was launched, it was clear that the decision to ask Evolution to create a live gaming platform for Danske Spil had been the correct one. The range of games on offer, which Danske Spil increases steadily, and the general feel and usability of the site attracted a lot of interest. Best of all, for Danish players, was the ability to play, chat and receive customer service in their native language.
Live Gaming Platform the Big Draw-Card
The biggest advantage to the platform created by Evolution for Danske Spil was the live gaming, of course. This innovation, which is now becoming more and more common in online casinos, was what made Evolution’s name in the first place.
The live gaming platform Evolution managed to create for Danske Spil provides a much more interactive experience than simply playing against a computer. Players can see and chat to dealers, croupiers and other players, which helps to make the Danske Spil site feel more like an authentic land-based casino.
Great Variety of Games Available
The Danske Spil casino site has lots of games on offer; appropriately enough for a casino whose name translates to Danish Gaming. In the computer-only games, there are plenty of slots titles, including Starburst and Nordic Heroes. There is a good selection of video poker titles, as well as table games like Blackjack and Roulette. The options available are as popular as any online casino NZ and other regions have to offer.
It is the live casino that many players are most interested in however; as they have been since Evolution was first announced as the choice to create a live gaming platform for Danske Spil. Here, players can enjoy Roulette, Blackjack, 3-Card Poker, Hold’em Poker and Baccarat, all played with live dealers and croupiers.
