Yggdrasil Gaming was founded in 2013 and is based in Malta. The company was established by Frederik Elmqvist, the former NetEnt CEO. The company quickly became popular among the online punters thanks to its terrific collection of video slots. Yggdrasil Gaming licenses its games to several big operators in the industry. They also offer licensed lottery products which another reason for their popularity. Yggdrasil Gaming is named after the tree in Norse mythology where the gods would meet to pick up their things. It is known to be the tree of life and signifies all the good things in the world. Their logo is that of a large ash tree.
Since the company is still relatively new, they do not have a vast collection of casino games. They are taking their time to craft high-quality games with excellent features and stunning graphics. The themes of the games are quite fun, such as Jokerizer and Magic Mushrooms, both of which offer a good gameplay. Fruitoids and Robotnik have features like wild symbols and free spins. The aesthetics have been perfected too.
It has been noticed that many of Yggdrasil’s games have a high ratio of non-paying spins. Not many casinos offer Yggdrasil slots but there are a few that do and they speak very highly of it. Guts, InterCasino, Mr. Green, Play OJO, Rizk and SlotsMillion are among the few operators that offer Yggdrasil games. Though the casino is a newcomer to the world of online gaming and betting, they offer quite great games. Expanding their collection with time could be one of the best things that can happen!
Jokerizer is the first video slot to be released by Yggdrasil. The company shot to game when the game was voted “Game of the Year” by many websites. The excellently designed game with great scope for action made it quite popular among the players. The subsequent games by the company also boast of imaginative gameplay, innovative design, and amazing audio. Joker Millions was released sometime later, which proved to be an instant hit. It was the company’s first progressive jackpot. Empire Jackpot soon followed with its release in 2016.
Yggdrasil Gaming has won 2016 EGR B2B Award – “Slot Provider of the Year, 2015 EGR B2B Awards as Software Rising Star, and 2016 International Gaming Awards “iGaming Software Supplier of the Year”.
