Evolution’s Dream Catcher Wheel a Winner at 2017 G2E Awards

Evolution Gaming’s new live casino game, Dream Catcher Wheel, wins Digital Product of the Year at 2017 G2E Awards.

Evolution Gaming Live Casino GameWhen you think of online casino award ceremonies, Evolution Gaming is one of the first brands to come to mind. The company has won so many awards since launching in 2006, I can only imagine how many times they’ve had to expand their mantle.

The Global Gaming Awards are held twice annually; recognizing both the B2C (business-to-customer) and B2B (business-to-business) aspects of the industry. Back in February, at the 2017 G2E B2C awards, Evolution won the Live Casino Supplier of the Year. No surprise there – they’ve won that award every single year since the inaugural G2E ceremony in 2010.

Earlier this month, the annual Global Gaming Expo was held at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. As always, the G2E B2B Awards took place during the event. And as always, Evolution Gaming walked away with a new trophy under its belt.

Dream Catcher Wheel Digital Game Of The Year

Unlike many of its competitors, Evolution specializes exclusively in the live casino games sector. They always have, and probably always will. That fact alone has given them an edge in developing a live casino product that is superior in almost every way imaginable. It also affords them time to work on innovative ideas, like the Dream Catch Wheel that was unveiled back in February.

Dream Catcher is unlike any other live casino games ever produced. All others focus on the provision of standard casino table games, in a live, digital streaming format. Dream Catcher Live is completely different. It is set up more like a 24/7 game show, with a real live host, an oversized money wheel, and the opportunity for players to win enormous amounts of cash playing on their desktop, smartphone or tablet.

The judges at G2E were well aware of this. They had a bank of player-popularity data to back up their decision when they chose to hand Evolution the 2017 Digital Game of the Year Award.

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer for Evolution, gave a proud acceptance speech before addressing the media.

“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,” he said.

As for why he believes the Dream Catcher Live game has been such a fabulous success with their live casino audience members, he had this to say. “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.”

Live Casino Game for Slots/Bingo Fans

Haushalter went on to address the target audience when they were developing the game. Traditionally, live casino games appeal to players of table games – blackjack, roulette, baccarat, etc. Evolution’s concept was to tap into the larger crowd of players who prefer fast-paced games of chance, like slot machines and bingo.

“We knew there were many slot, bingo, and other players who we hoped to reach with Dream Catcher, and that’s what we have achieved,” extolled Haushalter. “Dream Catcher has proved incredibly popular with players. The player counts are truly record-setting for a new product.”
