Evolution continues to push the limit of first person casino games with their launch of First Person Football Studio.
Since 2019, Evolution has been creating first person style RNG (random number generating) casino games. The new format of online casino games became wildly popular after the Covid-19 pandemic shuttered casino doors around the globe. First person casino games immerse the player in a digital casino experience. The first person games featured on Evolution’s website all put players in virtually the same position (from a viewing perspective) as they would be at the casino. There are still some aspects of first person games that could make the experience even more believable, but the company is off to a great start.
First person games vs. live dealer games
Evolution was the first casino content provider to bring live dealer casino games to players in Pennsylvania. Since then, Evolution has been investing in another form of online gambling, first person games.
First person casino games and live dealer games are often mistaken for each other. Evolution offers both options for players on multiple Pennsylvania casino sites, including but not limited to Barstool, BetMGM, BetRivers, DraftKings, FanDuel, Golden Nugget, PokerStars, and William Hill.
Before jumping into your first live dealer or first person online casino game, let’s talk about the differences between the two.
Live dealer casino games are live-streamed from one of Evolution’s 11 live studios across the globe. Evolution’s Pennsylvania live dealer studio launched in July 2021 and features male and female dealers leading players at their own tables. In the studio, dealers are essentially responding to decisions made by the player online and acting out those decisions in person. The whole thing is live-streamed to the player.
First person games don’t have any cameras or live dealer studios. Instead, players are playing a RNG digital game (just like digital RNG slots) that was created to look like a real casino experience.
Many players find first person casino games not much different than any other RNG slots or table games, and technically they’re right. The main difference between these games is just their visuals.
Live dealer games, on the other hand, feature real people, real tables, and real odds, not RNG. Many players question the authenticity of RNG games and find it easier to trust an actual dealer with a deck of cards. A live dealer game can also give players a more enjoyable experience since the dealer is a real person they can see.
On the flip side, many fans enjoy first person games because it allows players to customize their experience more than live dealer games. First person games often have higher betting limits for players, as compared to their live-dealer counterparts, and allow players to adjust the speed of their game. Live dealer games don’t have this option. In live dealer blackjack, for example, players wait for each person to place their bet before the dealer continues. First person games allow the player to make their move whenever they’d like, with some even allowing players to adjust the speed of the game further.
What’s great is that Evolution offers both live dealer and first person options for most games, giving players both options. Besides these differences, Evolution tries to ensure rules and user interface is consistent between both styles of games.

Evolution’s latest edition to the first person library is its First Person Football Studio. The game is a derivative of the company’s European Football Studio game launched a few years ago. The game is honestly quite simple. It involves players choosing which card between two cards dealt is higher. It’s essentially the same format as the popular card game many American kids played growing up, war. That’s about all there is to it. . .
While the new game isn’t too elaborate or interesting, it’s exciting to see Evolution begin to branch out from traditional table games. Other non-traditional casino first person games offered by Evolution include First Person Dragon Tiger, First Person Dreamcatcher, and First Person Deal or No Deal.
