All About Evolution’s Football Studio Game

Football Studio is a live dealer card game from Evolution. It's the perfect game for new live casino players - especially for fans of the beautiful game.

Despite simple origins, sports betting has become a many-sided beast over the past decade. Daily Fantasy Sports is one of the more obvious companions to wagering on the NFL, NBA, and NHL (etc) but virtual sports - i.e. betting on the outcome of a computerized event - seem to be growing in popularity too. Of course, then there’s eSports, whose appearance on sportsbooks firmly planted sports betting in the 21st century.

The potential for sports betting is still vast, though. Renowned developer Evolution recently proved this by developing the Football Studio game, a unique melding of a game show with soccer and casino craps. Put another way, it’s a card game that uses the backdrop of a sports broadcasting studio as a gimmick. There’s even a live presenter dressed like a European coach, in a shirt and tie.

The game is increasingly easy to find online, too. Irish online casino Clubhouse includes the game in its live game show category, alongside similar titles like Gonzo's Treasure Hunt, Dream Catcher, and Buffalo Blitz Live, a slots game based around a big red button. The Clubhouse Casino also has a more traditional arrangement of live games, including several variants of live roulette, craps, and blackjack.

Results & Fixtures

So, how is Football Studio played? First, the player has to place a bet on three possible outcomes, which are based on a soccer game. These are Home, Away, and Draw (Tie). Then, the dealer will draw a card each for the Home team and the Away team. Whichever side has the highest value card wins the game. In the event that both teams score the same value card, a Draw is called. That’s all there is to it. However, Football Studio enhances the player’s gameplay experience with some extra bonus features. These are Football Results & Fixtures, Dealer's Predictions, and Football Chat. The first of these allows players to pin real leagues to the game interface so that they can follow their favorite teams in real time. Dealer's Predictions simply lists the croupier’s thoughts on future matches.

Football Chat brings us to one of the most interesting aspects of live casino gaming, namely, the social aspect. Using the game’s built-in chat function, players can talk to their dealer about match results, pending transfers, and personalities from the pitch. This feature is now available in almost all games that have a live croupier on a webcam. It’s a way to bridge the gap in immersion between online and offline experiences.

Martingale Strategy

For some players, Football Studio’s rather low payouts on Home and Draw results (1:1) might be a concern but such easy gameplay means that it’s possible to use the Martingale strategy to gain control over losing streaks. This system requires the player to double their wager on a loss and return it to its original value on a win. It’s by no means a winning strategy but it can be a useful tool for beginners.

The good news is that Football Studio pays out 11:1 on a Draw. While that might be an unlikely outcome, it’s something that players can get excited about.
