Roll Out The Red Carpet For Yggdrasil - Yes, The Only Way Is Up!

Some of the gaming industry's big hitters, and particular markets in general such as Sweden, are currently seeing a bit of a contraction at present. Strangely enough, none of this seems to impact the fortunes of gaming developers Yggdrasil.

Based in Malta and started by some ex-employees of Net Entertainment, These Scandinavian developers Yggdrasil, seem to be moving along quite nicely and already after such a short period in business, now have in excess of 25 different casino operators in their camp.

Unlike Playtech, who generally only sign exclusive agreements with online casinos where only their software can be used, this new company rather play in an open field. Why bother with such restraint? Achieving record turnover in the first half of 2014, it would appear their strategies are right on course for another exciting year!

As well as announcing their healthy positive results for H1 of 2014, they also itemized other recent successes for the year. This included another studio stretching out to Ukraine, a new development hub in Poland and also a brand new sales operation in Gibraltar. There's no standing still for these guys!

With sales still in their ascendency, they have now signed a deal with casino heavyweight Betsson, parent company of gaming brands such as CasinoEuro and Betsafe. Long gone are the days of early 2013, where they started out with Swedish operators Cherry Casino, they are ready to hit the big time in their own right as they expand their library from its early beginnings.

From specialising in lottery and instant lottery products, they also have Keno games, and scratchcard games. In total with 23 games, the range may seem small, but it's not so much the numbers, it's more about the quality, with their expanding range of slots in particular taking the honoured spotlight.

Moving on from their remarkable Jokerizer slot game, with its stunning sound, 3D graphics and 100% plus RTP when in the Jokerizer mode, there are also other popular Yggdrasil favorites including Magic Mushrooms and Fruitoids. Now with the launch of their first progressive jackpot with Joker Millions Jackpot, expect it to be another record breaking year. Without doubt, for Yggdrasil, the only way is up!
