An Evolution new Asian partner Qtech has big plans for its video slot, virtual table game and live gaming partners with the introduction of a brand-new progressive jackpot network.
Just last month, Qtech struck a major deal with Evolution that works for both aggregators. Evolution gets its foot in the door in new Asian iGaming markets while Qtech wipes the floor with most of its competing aggregators in the Asian market with the power to introduce top games from the world’s number 1 live casino software platform.
With Evolution’s huge game collection and star titles like Lightning Baccarat, Dual Play Baccarat, Mega Ball, Monopoly Live, Crazy Time, Dragon Tiger, and Super Sic Bo, Qtech is set to conquer Asia’s live dealer scene with Evolution. As part of a diversified growth plan, this partnership will surely see revenues fly in both the Evolution and Qtech camps!
Now the next big step Qtech’s growth strategy is already in action via a jackpot system that may also work its way over to Evolution live games. At the moment, Evolution is surprisingly lax when it comes to introducing progressive jackpot live dealer titles. There is a progressive jackpot on the Casino Hold’em game which is the Jumbo 7 Jackpot, another progressive jackpot on the Evolution Caribbean Stud Poker title, and Texas Hold’em Bonus poker uses the First Five Progressive jackpot.
Aside from a few poker titles, Evolution stopped short with its poker games with no other progressive jackpots across its baccarat, roulette, or blackjack titles which is odd. Considering Playtech Age of Gods has had immense success with its progressive jackpot, it stands to reason that Evolution would come up with a roulette title harnessing a progressive jackpot at the very least.
That said, Evolution has only just acquired NetEnt and Red Tiger, which already have successful jackpot networks. Quite possibly these networks may soon spill over to the live dealer gaming market. It wouldn’t be farfetched to predict that the next title coming out of the Evolution game development studios will be a jackpot game, and in that case we can eat our words!
Will Qtech Market Evolution Games in Asia with its Progressive Jackpots?
It is a long shot, but what better way to crack the Asian market than to introduce a progressive jackpot in a region where players are less concerned with percentages of their bets being taken to feed the jackpot prize.
In Europe and North America players are more sensitive when it comes to 10% or 20% of their bets disappearing to accumulate a jackpot with a 1 in 10,000 chance of them hitting it. This creates a large pool of players that tend to sway towards non-progressive jackpot games or casino games with no jackpot whatsoever. No such issues in Asia, and that is perhaps exactly why Qtech prioritised its next evolutionary rise into iGaming via the introduction of a progressive jackpot network.
Right now, the Qtech jackpot is available in Blueprint Gaming titles. Players will find numerous jackpots slots with a Grand (Jackpot King), Major (Regal), and Mini (Royal) progressive jackpot. Evolution can take advantage of this system in Asia by adding jackpots to its live dealer games specifically for Asia, while there is also another rumour mill opening—could Evolution open an Asia live casino studio?
That’s why we love the news! For now, let’s wait to see what the future holds…
