Yggdrasil Takes Players to Paradise in New Slot Easter Island

Yggdrasil announces release of new slot

Yggdrasil Gaming has wandered into the remote Pacific Ocean alongside adventurous players for the launch of its new slot, Easter Island.

Expanding reels, sticky wilds and a summery soundscape will ensure that players have a great expedition.

There is an exciting ‘symbol swap respin’ feature, where every win will trigger a respin, with the winning symbol replacing either all high or low paying symbols on the reels.

The Head of Slots at Yggdrasil Gaming, Jonas Strandman, commented: “Easter Island is the perfect pep up for those with an adventurous spirit. Players will be treated to exciting winning combinations as they trigger the novel ‘symbol swap respin’ and take advantage of the expanding reels.”

“With the big wins on offer, those who make the trip won’t be in a hurry to return to the mainland anytime soon.”

Easter Island explorers are also warmly welcomed by two towering, vibrantly animated Moai statues which cheer players on and also help out when they can by growing up to four rows taller when landing more than four symbols on a win line.

The game entails a colourful, floral theme and cheery outlook, and players will enjoy Yggdrasil’s usual high-spec design elements and animations.

To further celebrate Easter, Yggdrasil is also launching an exciting Missions network campaign on the 29th of March with a whopping €60,000 prize pool. The player who finishes at the top of the leaderboard will win a trip for two to Chile and Easter Island to see the strikingly enigmatic Moai first-hand, as well as visiting the mesmerising Atacama Desert.

Easter Island slot is built using Yggdrasil’s usual responsive design processes, ensuring a seamless user experience on both mobile and desktop.

The game sits on Yggdrasil’s established HTML client framework iSENSE 2.0+, and will be backed by its collection of in-game promotion tools, BOOST™, which are proven to boost retention rates for all operators.

Yggdrasil was recently in the headlines due to its plans for expansion in Italy.



New YGS Masters Programme Announced by Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil organises new masters programme

Yggdrasil Gaming will be inviting independent games studios in order to gain new game titles on its platform, coupled with the launch of Yggdrasil Game Server (YGS) Masters.

The platform will see Yggdrasil curating content from the world’s leading independent games studios. The platform is also invite-only and semi-open.

SiGMA iGamingThe CEO of Yggdrasil, Fredrik Elmqvist, commented: “YGS Masters is a strategic initiative in reaction to gaming’s increasingly fragmented value chain. With direct integrations scarce, independent suppliers require the support of an established partner with forward-leaning technology.”

“Operators and game studios alike have been crying out for years for a modern, open platform that offers the power and flexibility of BOOST™ and the broad market penetration that Yggdrasil has amassed.”

Yggdrasil will provide access to BOOST™, the supplier’s collection of in-game promotional tools, allowing studios to develop their own versions of these tools within their game clients. This will include the ability to run network campaigns.

The YGS Masters will be led by Stuart McCarthy, who takes on the position of Head of Studio Partnerships. McCarthy has worked for BetClic and NYX in the past, where he was Product Manager for OGS.

The Head of Studio Partnerships at Yggdrasil, Stuart McCarthy, added: “YGS Masters is a hugely exciting development for the gaming industry and something that I am immensely proud to be leading.”

“The programme will be independently managed, away from the existing Yggdrasil game studio business and will furnish a very select group of the world’s best game developers with Yggdrasil’s proven, market-leading BOOST™ tools to create an irresistible mix of awesome content and features.”

Yggdrasil was in the headlines just last month, after striking a deal.
