In this highly competitive iGaming industry, it's always a big boost when a live casino game developer gets approval to enter a new market. And it even gets better if that market is highly regulated like the Isle of Man.
In May last year, Vivo Gaming became the first live content aggregator to be approved in the IoM gambling jurisdiction. This move further strengthens Vivo Gaming's appeal across market stakeholders.
Vivo Gaming joined this up-and-coming gaming market after receiving certification from the Isle of Man Gambling Supervisory Commission (GSC). This follows a successful audit of its three studios by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI).
Following the move, Vivo Gaming integrated with Ableton Prestige Global, the first IoM based live casino operator. This sees Vivo Gaming distribute its live casino variants via this giant operator in Europe and Asian markets.
GLI is known for thoroughly testing and auditing live casino studios and live casino games across the globe. They ensure that the certified operators and regulators meet the regulatory standards of high confidence.
This independent testing lab audited Vivo Gaming's studios in Colombia, Bulgaria, and Cambodia. The audit identifies potential weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and non-compliance that can erode confidence and integrity.
After the successful audit, GLI's Vice President of Sales, EMEA, James Illingworth, said this is an exciting milestone for the operator and its live dealer enterprise. He lauded Vivo Gaming's team for being professional and helpful throughout the audit. Illingworth promised GLI's support for the IoM jurisdiction and Vivo Gaming.
On their part, Vivo Gaming's Head of Account Management, Nadine Thys, said the content aggregator is happy to have completed an in-depth audit for their triple studios. Thys expressed hope that this move will take Vivo Gaming to the next level as they enter the IoM market.
Last year was sure a good one for Vivo Gaming. In August, the live casino powerhouse bolstered its third-party arsenal after adding Red Rake Gaming. The deal sees Vivo Gaming boost its game library with the comprehensive catalog from this gaming studio.
Launched in 2016, Red Rake is a household name in regulated European markets like the UK, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Romania, etc.
Then in December, Vivo Gaming sealed the deal with Parimatch, a leading sports betting brand in Europe. The agreement sees Parimatch add 20+ live casino games from Vivo Gaming's library. Vivo Gaming is known for entertaining and rewarding games like Poker, Blackjack, and Roulette.
To be honest, Vivo Gaming is a little overshadowed by the 'top dogs' like Evolution, Ezugi, and Microgaming in the live casino industry. But this content aggregator is no slouch. Vivo Gaming's library boasts some of the most entertaining and rewarding live casino games. Below are some of them:
This live European roulette variant is streamed from state-of-the-art land-based casinos, giving players an immersive gaming experience. It boasts a simple design and a racetrack at the bottom-right corner for placing neighbor bets. Also, the game features 15+ live tables with varying styles and designs. Plus, you can play this live roulette variant in portrait or landscape mode on mobile.
The classic bingo game is a fan favorite in most bingo halls. And let's be honest, finding a live bingo version can be a bit of a challenge. Vivo Gaming made it easier for you in 2020 after launching this entertaining live bingo game. This game is streamed from several live casinos studios and is hosted by friendly and professional dealers. You should try it!
Live craps by Vivo Gaming ticks almost all boxes, including design quality, instructiveness, win potential, you name them. Streamed from Malta, this game features a clear table layout with several betting options. Unlike live craps by Evolution, Vivo Gaming's version features two dealers, the table host and the "shooter." This game definitely recreates a studio environment.
Dragon Tiger is a popular live casino game that borrows inspiration from baccarat. However, its fast-paced nature and the game's simplicity make it a fan favorite in most live casinos. In this game by Vivo Gaming, a single card is dealt to the Dragon and Tiger positions. Then, players bet on the outcome on each side. Unlike other card games like Andar Bahar, no additional card is dealt in this game.
Live Blackjack by Vivo Gaming has been around since 2013 and is one of the most rewarding live blackjack variants. This game boasts a 99.50% theoretical return rate and a maximum payout of 100:1. Now, if you place the maximum bet of $250 and win, that will give you a cool $25,000. And don't forget this game offers real-time interaction with the dealer and other players via live chat.
