Livespins aquired by Evolution

Online slots have been transformed by real-time streaming, evolving from a solitary pursuit into a lively social event. Pioneering companies such as Livespins are at the helm of this revolution, using cutting-edge technologies to craft captivating and immersive player experiences.

How Real-Time Streaming Transformed Online Slots

In recent years, the online casino industry has experienced a seismic shift. What was once a solitary experience has now transformed into a highly social and immersive activity, thanks to the advent of real-time streaming technology. This transformation is particularly evident in the realm of online slots, where companies like Livespins are leveraging cutting-edge technologies to revolutionize player engagement and redefine the industry.

The Evolution of Online Slots

Traditionally, online slot games were designed as solitary experiences. Players would log in, spin the reels, and either win or lose in isolation. While this format offered convenience and accessibility, it lacked the social interaction that many players crave. Enter real-time streaming—a game-changer that has redefined how players interact with slots and each other.

Live slots have taken the industry by storm, offering a more engaging and communal experience. By integrating real-time streaming, players can now watch live hosts spin the reels, participate in live chats, and even place bets behind other players in a feature known as “Bet Behind.” This communal aspect not only enhances the social experience but also increases player retention and engagement.

The Power of Livespins

Livespins stands out as a pioneer in this space, successfully harnessing the power of real-time streaming to deliver an unparalleled online slot experience. Their innovative approach has not gone unnoticed; the company was recently acquired by Evolution Gaming, a testament to their impact on the industry. Livespins’ success can be attributed to their strategic use of technologies like Dolby Millicast and WebRTC (Web Real-time Communication). These technologies enable high-quality, low-latency streaming, ensuring that players receive a seamless and immersive experience.

One of the most exciting features introduced by Livespins is “Bet Behind.” This feature allows players to place bets on the spins of other players, adding a new layer of strategy and excitement. According to Livespins, this feature has significantly increased player retention, as it offers a way for less experienced players to learn from the pros while still participating.

The Pivotal Role of Dolby Millicast

Dolby Millicast provides ultra-low latency streaming, which is crucial for live interactions. This technology ensures that players experience real-time reactions and interactions, making the game feel more dynamic and engaging. According to Michael Pederson, the CCO of Livespins, “Dolby Millicast was an essential pillar in delivering a top-quality product to our clients and has therefore played an important role in our business success and results.”

Employing the Dolby Millicast CDN, built on WebRTC, it enables peer-to-peer connections and reduces the need for intermediary servers. This not only enhances streaming quality but also minimizes delays, further improving the player’s experience.

The performance of Livespins is making a significant impact in terms of value. With its user engagement metrics showing that the “average rounds per player” is almost double compared to some of the most frequented slots, Livespins is clearly resonating with users. This high level of engagement not only attests to the game’s popularity but also highlights its capacity for player retention and maintaining their interest over time.


The integration of real-time streaming into online slots has transformed the industry, turning a once solitary activity into a vibrant, social experience. Companies like Livespins are at the forefront of this revolution, leveraging advanced technologies to create engaging and immersive experiences for players.

For industry professionals, casinos, gaming operators, and technology innovators, the message is clear—real-time streaming is not just a trend; it’s the future of online slots. Those who adapt and innovate will not only survive but thrive in this new landscape.
