New produce is the first of its kind to be approved by Italian regulator AAMS 

Live dealer technology specialist Evolution Gaming has launched a new Live Casino Hold’em table for Italian gambling group Lottomatica.

The game, which can be played in real time online, is the first Live Casino Hold’em to be certified by Italian regulator AAMS and the first to go live.

The poker-style game joins Lottomatica’s existing online Live Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat offering for Italy.

Launch night was marked by a guest appearance at the Lottomatica tables by Max Pescatori, one of Italy’s most famous professional poker players and a World Series of Poker bracelet winner.

Pescatori, who trained as a croupier in Las Vegas before becoming a poker professional, dealt hands at the Italian Live Casino Hold’em table for two evenings, entertaining surprised Italian players.

Gionata La Torre, CEO of Evolution Italy, said: “We are very proud to have achieved yet another first in Italy – for Evolution and for Lottomatica. This underlines our shared commitment to delivering the best live gaming experience across multiple channels.”

The Lottomatica Live Casino Hold’em game is available now, live via PC and Mac at www.lottomatica.it. iPad play will be added after the summer and the game will also be incorporated into Lottomatica’s Vegas Club show (DTT channel 59).

All Lottomatica Live Casino games are streamed live from Lottomatica’s dedicated, branded area within Evolution’s European Live Casino production studios. Evolution bluescreen technology is used to create an authentic casino environment online, and players are served by a dedicated team of native speaking Italian dealers.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
