Yggdrasil Gaming started life back in 2013 when NetEnt’s former CEO Fredrik Elmqvist decided to create a new game studio whose focus was on adding elements of different gameplay and advanced features to online casino games. Despite being a relatively new company they have a pretty impressive portfolio of online slots (some sites are also now becoming solely Yggdrasil Casinos) that showcases their genius in designing high quality and ultimately extremely entertaining games of chance. Aside of excellent graphics and sound their video slot games have features like the ‘hold reels’ button among the more typical bonus features found in online slot games.
Yggdrasil feature a mix of themes and different styles throughout their slot games and have even created progressive jackpot games, with both local jackpots in the case of Holmes and the Stolen Stones and also bigger networked jackpots like Joker Millions which can reach the €1,000,000 mark fairly rapidly. Their Jokerizer series of games is extremely popular and includes an extra feature in the Joker symbols that can appear on the reels. Coding almost exclusively in HTML5 means Yggdrasil Gaming offer their games across all available platforms, including smartphones and tablet devices so mobile casino players can enjoy all their great software too.
Yggdrasil Gaming have built upon the standard slot game format and improved it considerably, adding in elements not seen in online slot games previously. Their latest slot games such as Cazino Zeppelin, Big Blox, Nirvana and Viking’s Go Wild all display flashes of excellence throughout and these current titles and their earlier games have been well received by online casino players. Games like Double Dragons, Empire of Fortune and Super Heroes all showcase Yggdrasil’s amazing talent for designing graphically beautiful games with superior gameplay and features.
Their earlier games such as Fruitoids, Golden Fish Tank and Magic Mushroom have even started to look a little dated by the new games standards, but even so, they still have a loyal set of fans and a dedicated player base even on these older slots. This shows that quality entertainment is the order of the day over at Yggdrasil, and players enjoying your games even when they’re less impressive than your new ones is the ultimate litmus test in terms of staying power and a testament to their slot game quality.
Their UI’s are intuitive and easy to use, all the standard functions like spin, max bet and wagering settings are covered straight from the gaming screen while all other information is only a click away. Currently they’re developing all their games in HTML5 and use a proprietary technology called iSense, currently in it’s second version, when making games. This allows for the use of stop motion techniques and powerful transitional effects which competing software developers find hard to match in terms of quality.
