The European Casino Association (ECA) held its first-ever Safety & Security Conference at Veikkaus Casino Helsinki in early April. The conference combined the expertise of members, partners and external experts.

The mix of presentations and workshops focused on physical safety & security, as well as cybersecurity in a modern land-based casino environment. Identifying the key prevention measures for the industry and sharing of first hand experiences and best practices where at the centre of the discussion and networking throughout the event.

Topics on the agenda were international cooperation, payment safety, fraud prevention, international standards certification, as well as trends and legal aspects of cybersecurity. The conference follows a workshop held in 2018 at Casino 2OOO in Luxembourg, which kick-started the activities that will now become a regular feature for the coming years.

It brought the ECA and its members to the forefront of the latest research and practical application in the area, which are crucial for employees, customers and other stakeholders of the industry. It also follows the association’s three-year strategy that includes the key objective of providing thought leadership, exchange and development of best practices on key issues for the industry. Besides safety and security, this also includes Anti-Money Laundering, Corporate Social Responsibility and Diversity & Inclusion.

It has members from nearly all EU Member States, as well as non-EU countries.

EVOLUTION ADDS POWER BLACKJACK TO ITS GROWING ‘INFINITE’ RANGE OF GAMES
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, today announced the launch of its newest scalable Blackjack game, Power Blackjack. First showcased at ICE 2020, the game further extends the company’s popular Infinite range, which includes titles such as Infinite Blackjack and Free Bet Blackjack.

As in all of Evolution’s Infinite games, Power Blackjack offers an unlimited number of seats for players at a single table. What’s unique with Power Blackjack is the added opportunity for players to multiply their winnings by choosing to double, triple or quadruple down their bet on the two initial dealt cards, even after a split.

Evolution strives to continuously improve its offering while, at the same time, developing the entire Live Casino market by means of cutting-edge product innovation. As we introduce games for new audiences in the form of our Game Shows category, we continue to develop our offering for traditional live players. During the year, we have released several new innovations of classic table games of which Power Blackjack is the latest. The release of this new version of Blackjack is in line with us constantly striving to further strengthen Evolution’s leading position as a developer in these traditional gaming categories.

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution Gaming, said: “With this game the mission was to give players more of what they love about Blackjack without changing the underlying gameplay. We know that players love classic Blackjack, but we are always looking for new ways to keep it fresh. Creating a version where players can triple and quadruple down, instead of just double down, felt like a great way to do this.”

He added: “A few years ago we created Infinite Blackjack, which is simply a Blackjack platform that allows an unlimited number of players at just one table, instead of the standard seven seats. Building on the success of our proven Infinite format, we have created further new Blackjack game types such as Free Bet Blackjack and now Power Blackjack, with more to come in the future.”
