Real Dealer Studios, a game provider specializing in live casino games, is aiming to make a big splash in the Ontario market with the launch of ‘Hockey Fever Roulette’.
The RNG game is the company’s first sports-themed title and features a dealer – played by the American actress Sarati – in a ‘man cave packed with sports memorabilia, thumping rock music and an upbeat, match-day atmosphere’.
Made exclusively available via Games Global – which owns the iGaming Ontario (iGO) approved operator Apollo Entertainment – the new title incorporates ‘noticeably Canadian’ elements and allows Sarati to interact with players one-on-one as she takes bets, spins the wheel and commentates on the results.
“While we expect this title to attract die-hard hockey fans from several countries, we made this game specifically with Ontario in our sights,” explained Shane Cotter, Chief Product Officer at Real Dealer Studios.
“It’s one of the key markets for our table games, and with the ice hockey world championship coming up next month, it really seemed like the perfect fit.”
According to Cotter, the flexibility of Cinematic RNG – Real Dealer’s ‘Hollywood-style production technique’ – has helped to engineer the dealer-hosted game for both the market and sportsbook cross-sell.
The process sees professional actors, directors, and production crew deliver “polished cinema-quality” recorded video, which is then integrated into a RNG-based game framework.
