Yggdrasil Continue to Expand in the UK

Slot designers Yggdrasil have been busy working on their aim to expand in the UK. A new partnership with Lottomart has been forged and it’s seen as a major move for the company.

It’s a partnership that will help both of its participants. Yggdrasil is a company that has created a highly impressive slot portfolio. Lottomart are always looking to increase the quality of their online casino slot content. Players can look forward to safely playing some great games, including Big Bass Bonanza slots with free spins.

 

Those familiar with the content of Yggdrasil will already know the high quality of their games. Near the top of the list are the Viking series of slots. The immersive gameplay has gone down well with players as has its impressive storytelling. Games in the series have included ‘Vikings Go to Egypt’ and ‘Vikings Go Berzerk.’

Jackpot games such as ‘Boilin’ Pots’ and ‘Dr Fortuno’ have produced some massive wins for players.  With a continual stream of games being released by Yggdrasil, Lottomart will be looking forward to seeing their online slot collection boosted.

 

One reason for the excellent games released by the company is the YGG Masters program. This sees Yggdrasil working with some of the best independent game studios, operators and game developers. This has resulted in high-quality games being released on a regular basis.

UK and Canadian game designers Hungrybear joined the YGG Masters program in June. On its way is a real-money gaming version of ‘Slot Masters’ which will be exclusively distributed by Yggdrasil and big cash wins will replace free spin prizes. Initially a free-to-play version will be released in July.

 

Jose Simon is the Commercial Director at Yggdrasil and he sees the deal with Lottomart as a very important one for the company. With online slots so popular in the UK, expanding their presence in the country is something that Yggdrasil are very keen on achieving and this partnership aids that.

There are some concerns over new maximum stake limits for slot games but it’s still an industry that is proving to be very profitable.

 

Mr Simon is full of praise for Lottomart who he believes are determined to achieve excellence at all times. Their desire to create exceptional gaming experiences is one that Yggdrasil shares.

2024 has already seen Yggdrasil continue to release slot games that have been well received at online slots. Animals and fruit are both regularly seen in slots so it’s no surprise to see ‘Monkeys Go Bananas MultiMax.’

 

The MultiMax mechanic can certainly help players boost their account balance. There aren’t any players who will ever be upset about being awarded a multiplier. There are plenty in this new release from Yggdrasil.

Every win that comes along can possibly see a multiplier being attached to it. There are five separate multipliers, each being associated with the reels seen in this game. With this being so, there’s never a dull moment here.

A feature that is always good to see is Avalanche. When a winning combination is achieved, it could be the start of a winning streak. The successful symbols do a disappearing act and that leaves some vacant spots on the reels. New ones fall down into place and the reels are then reevaluated. If there’s a win, then the process is repeated again until no new winning combination is achieved.

 

This action-packed slot from Yggdrasil also has a Free Spins round. The reel multipliers are in play so the chance of some big wins coming along is good.

Then there’s the bomb symbols to consider. Spinning the reels and not getting a win doesn’t sound like good news does it? However, when that does happen, the bomb symbols might just make an appearance and produce some unexpected wins.

 

Up to €250,000 can be won in this slot and the multipliers can reach an impressive 10,000x. With an RTP of 94%, this is a high volatility slot game. Therefore, you do need to be patient when playing this slot. The big wins you crave can come along but not too regularly.

 

Tomasz Kowalik is the Head of Games Production at Yggdrasil. He has praised the key role that the mechanics in this slot make it such a great game to play.

His view is that it’s just another example of how they aim to continue being innovative with everything they release. That will continue with new slots such as ‘Attack of the Zombees’ and ‘Ultra Hotfire’ both due out in August.
