Australian provider Big Time Gaming became part of Evolution Gaming
White Rabbit, Extra Chilli, Bonanza, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire – all these online slots were developed by the famous Australian studio Big Time Gaming. Not so long ago BTG brand was purchased by a large Swedish company Evolution Gaming, which had previously acquired such brands as NetEnt, Red Tiger and Ezugi. The deal was set for 450 million euros. NetEnt for example, given the higher level of the company, was acquired for more than 2 billion dollars.
Evolution Gaming is a brand of live dealer games from Sweden, offering the market high-quality broadcasts since 2006 in the most popular and legit online casinos. A large number of licenses, certificates, and awards underline the prestige of the company. The company employs more than 3,000 dealers, the number of tables – more than 300. The studio’s portfolio includes about 100 games with a 2021 innovation – a slot with a live dealer – Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt. The core of the portfolio is classic table games with live presenters and game shows.

The chairman of Evolution said that the acquisition of BTG would allow the company to strengthen its position as a leading provider of casino games around the world. According to Evolution, the brand’s focus on innovation and unique games coincide with the principles of BTG. The CEO of Big Time Gaming said that both studios are driven by innovation, so they fit well together and that vibrant and exciting products await players in the future.
Despite that now the Australian provider Big Time Gaming is not independent, all future games will be created and released under the BTG brand. Fans of slots from this developer will not get upset, as now they are waiting for no less interesting and rich products. Moreover, BTG now being a part of a larger company is a prerequisite for an even higher quality of future works.
Most likely, the acquisition of BTG will have no effect on the final products of this brand. At least the purchase of NetEnt and Red Tiger showed that there is no interference. The same applies to Ezugi, which, among other things, like Evolution, offers live dealer games. Ezugi was “absorbed” in 2018, NetEnt and Red Tiger in 2020. It is interesting that Red Tiger has long been a subsidiary of NetEnt, and more recently a subsidiary of Evolution Gaming.
Big Time Gaming differs from other providers in that it offers a store with its own logo, where the player will find hoodies, sweatshirts, stickers, posters, hats, and more. Even more interesting is that all the money made from the sales go to charity. The range is quite extensive, given that we are talking about Big Time Gaming, not Nike. In the store you can buy products with the logo of the brand or with the logo of a particular game: for example, a Bonanza Megapays mug.
The deal between Evolution Gaming and Big Time Gaming is a step in the development of both providers. Evolution has become even more powerful, and BTG now represents the leading provider of live dealer games. It is a great opportunity to exchange experiences.
