Canada’s Loto-Québec has expanded its iGaming offering with the addition of live dealer casino games from Evolution Gaming.
The provincial lottery operator, which is headquartered in Montreal, will broadcast live casino games from Evolution’s production studio in Vancouver on its Lotoquebec.com site.
Customers will have access to six dedicated, branded tables – five of which will be hosted by French-speaking dealers – as well as four standard tables. Loto-Québec expects to launch the new service before the end of January.
“We’re thrilled to be launching casino en direct,” Lotoquebec.com online product manager Sovanna Phan said. “It fits hand in glove with our click-and-mortar strategy to engage with customers both online and face-to-face at our casinos.”
Lotoquebec.com will be the second igaming site operating out of Evolution’s site in Vancouver, which opened in February last year. The British Columbia Lottery Corporation already offers live casino games to customers in British Columbia and Manitoba from the facility.
At present, Evolution is the only licensed live casino provider active in Canada.
“The service we will be providing to Lotoquebec.com underlines the flexibility of our Vancouver studio and our vast experience in the provision of live casino solutions,” Evolution chief business officer for American and land-based gaming James Stern said.
“Our track record in providing native speaking dealer solutions is a key factor, with Lotoquebec.com’s French speaking presenter tables being a key USP when serving the province’s predominantly French speaking population.”
