The history of live gambling on the web
The first experimental developments in the field ofwere in the early 2000s. But only in 2007, as Internet technologies developed, the first samples came out and immediately they became popular. The pioneer was a veteran of the industry – the British company Playtech. However, soon the leadership passed to highly specialized developers, because the live format provides for expensive maintenance of studios, equipment and personnel.
In 2020, the world leader is the Evolution Gaming company established in 2006 with its head office and studio in Riga. Other providers, including the Swedish Netent, account for 20-25% of the market.
Other companies include:
• Extreme Live Gaming, the most active in major Western European online casinos;
• LuckyStreak is a young provider also with studios in Latvia;
• Microgaming is the third largest in the Internet;
• Playtech is an industry veteran who has lost ground in the world and is practically not represented in online casinos working for the audience of the online casino sites.
