Evolution’s Dream Catcher wins Digital Product of the Year at G2E Las Vegas

Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has announced that its Dream Catcher money wheel has been named Digital Product of the Year in the Global Gaming Awards 2017.

Evolution beat nine other shortlisted companies to win the prestigious award, which goes to the innovation or feature judged to have most improved its sector in the past 12 months.

Evolution received its award at the Global Gaming 2017 Awards Ceremony at the Sands Expo Centre Las Vegas as part of G2E Las Vegas.

Dream Catcher is a visually stunning super-sized vertical money wheel with the chance for huge wins and is presented like a 24/7 games show.  It has become a runaway success for Evolution’s clients.  Presented by a live game show host and streamed live to online players on desktop, tablet and smartphone, the game takes a familiar concept, as seen in land-based casino entrance areas and in TV shows around the globe, into the digital world.

After collecting the award Evolution’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter said: “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. 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.

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. Dream Catcher has proved incredibly popular with players. The player counts are truly record-setting for a new product.”

Haushalter added: “Dream Catcher is a fun, easy to play game and, of course, it's live — players can just pick up their smartphone or tablet and get involved in the live action any time they like.  And with the potential for the 2x and 7x multiplier segments on the wheel to keep hitting sequentially, there’s the chance for players to win thousands of times their initial bet, just like in slots.”
