One of Europe’s largest online gaming firms, Unibet, has struck up a partnership with Yggdrasil to make online slot and poker machines available throughout Europe. Yggdrasil has announced that it will make its entire back catalog of games available to Unibet. The company says it is adding 10 new national currencies to its betting system.
Yggdrasil’s Biggest Partnership to Date
Yggdrasil’s chief executive officer, Fredrik Elmqvist, revealed that the company’s partnership with Unibet is its biggest ever. It’s “our biggest live” opening in the history of Yggdrasil, he said. Elmqvist hinted that his firm is preparing to put a major company overhaul into effect following the Unibet deal. Yggdrasil hopes to add a long list of new partners to its company in the coming months.
The popular online casino company has had many hit games over the years, including Winterberries, a 5-reel slot game with 25 ways to win. Another popular slot game, Jokerizer, teases players with random puzzles and mysterious, scattered symbols.
Company History and Accomplishments
Yggdrasil is a relatively new online gaming company located in Malta. Quick to become popular and successful, they have specialized mainly in video slot machines but also dabbled in lottery games, scratch cards, 3-D Keno and other online and computerized gambling. One reason Yggdrasil has become popular so quickly is the interesting graphics and responsive game play of their catalog of video casino games.
While the company puts the focus on computer gambling, they also operate a daily Lotto 7 jackpot in Malta. The game offers a maximum of 2.5 million Euros in a progressive jackpot, which is pooled and accumulated throughout the week. They offer their online casino games for desktop browsers and mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads and Android phones. The graphics for each device tend to vary depending on the device’s capabilities, but most smartphones support 3-D graphics and online, multi-player gaming.
Yggdrasil’s games make use of numbers to entice players to place bets on appealing combinations. The mobile scratch card games generally offer multiple ways to win, with surprising payoffs based on the player’s view of the gaming console.
