Evolution releases live casino and slot title Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt

Evolution has confirmed the launch of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt, lauded as the world’s ‘first’ live casino game to integrate live and slots-style gameplay and includes a Virtual Reality mode. 

Inspired by the industry-renowned Gonzo character and intellectual property from NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest, the title is the latest addition to Evolution’s live game shows portfolio. 

The new Gonzo live game show is the first Evolution game to use NetEnt IP following Evolution’s acquisition of the latter at the end of last year.

Todd Haushalter, chief product officer at Evolution, said: “This is our first product that combines the best of NetEnt with Evolution. 

“I’ve been excited to work with the amazing NetEnt intellectual property since the acquisition was announced and we are starting by taking the most famous character in slots and bringing him to live casino.”

The central feature of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt in VR mode using a Virtual Reality headset and controller, enriching the immersive gaming experience even further.

Haushalter continued: “This is also the first live game ever where players have such a high degree of control over their game strategy and the potential outcome. 

“Unlike other games where the result is the result and there is nothing you can do about it, in Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt players take control as they go hunting for their prizes. 

“This is a whole new direction for our game shows as we want to widen the definition of what a game show is – giving the player this level of control will attract a new audience to Evolution. 

“We are continuing to evolve what the gambling experience can be, and this is an incredibly exciting landmark launch.”
