Leading online gaming software developer EvenBet Gaming has added the in-demand card game Call Break to its poker platform’s extensive library of titles.
The skill-based strategy card game has seen a huge uptick in popularity across South Asia, particularly in India and Nepal. With relatively few vendors offering Call Break, EvenBet’s new version of the game makes it ideal for operators to attract new players.
Call Break sees a 52-card deck distributed among four players who each declare the number of hands they expect to win. Each player contributes one card of the same colour suit to a hand during their turn, with the highest card winning that hand. When all cards are used, the points of each player are evaluated based on the accuracy of their calls.
Legal to play online in India, Call Break is among the skill-based card games that are booming in the country. While the whole online gaming industry is growing – with the number of online players expected to increase to 440 million in 2022 – India is considered one of the top five mobile gaming markets, with growth for online card games reaching 67% year-on-year in 2020.
Several major operators in India, including MPL, Adda52 and Faboom, as well as EvenBet’s platform customers 9stacks and PokerSaint, now have access to the game for testing and are getting ready to launch.
This marks the 35th card game adapted by EvenBet and is now available through the company’s market-leading poker platform. The in-house developed title is one of the most sought-after online card games and is set to provide strong user engagement levels for EvenBet’s operator customers.
The release of Call Break further enhances EvenBet’s content offering, which consists of over 2000 card games, table games, slots and live games offered by its third-party partners.
Dmitry Starostenkov, CEO at EvenBet Gaming, said: “Call Break by EvenBet is a unique card game that can help operators attract a whole new demographic of player.
“Industry analysts believe Call Break has every chance of becoming one of the three most played skill-based games in Asia, alongside rummy and poker, so making it available through our platform is hugely important. Now that we can provide all three offerings, we expect our software to meet all Asian gaming companies’ demands; operators ready to deliver all the most popular skill-based card games will be at a notable advantage in these markets.
“As a forward-thinking developer, we are quick to respond to market trends and this is the latest example of how EvenBet helps operators to increase their user engagement rates through quality content.”
