Yggdrasil Software

Yggdrasil Gaming specialise in Lottery, Keno and Scratch Card games. Number games are their passion, and they are aiming to stand out from other software companies on the market by integrating popular number games with other proven gaming concepts, such as 3D graphics and free games. When we first heard about them we have to admit that we were rather intrigued by the name of the company. As what did it mean? Well, we can tell you that it is taken from Norse Mythology and is thought to mean ‘World Tree’, hence their beautiful tree logo.

Yggdrasil Gaming Slots and Keno

They may have only come into the spotlight in 2013; however, they already have a great selection of games to try out. Now, you are not going to find any video slot games, or table games at any of casino sites using solely their software platform, but what you will find is a range of; Video Keno (Medusa Eyes of Fire and Siamese Serpents etc), Classic Scratch Cards (Silver Dollars and Gold Bars etc), Video Scratch Cards (Holiday Catch and King for a Day etc) and Jackpot Games (A Cool Million and Sabbatical). They have also announced that they will soon be launching a host of lottery games.

All of their games are available to try out for free, and they even have a selection of games that are available to be played on your smartphones and tablets. Their mobile games also use their iSense™ technology; however, they boasts an additional feature in the form of Swipe Reveal™. Swipe Reveal™ allows the user to use the touch technology in their phones and/or tablets to play their games. For example; you can actually use your finger to scratch off a scratch card.

Software Security

Yggdrasil Gaming has passed all the strict rules and procedures to receive their Class 4 Operators license from the Lotteries and Gaming authority (LGA) in Malta. Their site has also gone through an external testing house and has passed with flying colours.

iSense technology and CSS3

The company was founded by Net Entertainment's (Net Ent) former CEO, Fredrik Elmqvist, at the beginning of 2013. His vision wasn’t just to create a selection of number based games, but to also provide technologically advanced gameplay that you wouldn’t be able to get from any other software providers. He has done this by using HTML 5 code which is able to support their ground-breaking iSense™ technology. Their iSense™ technology works by providing sleeker stop motion/stop frame animation techniques, particle animations, and CSS3 transitions. CSS3 transitions allow effects to be changed from one style to another, without having to use Flash or JavaScript. This may not sound very impressive; however, it means that you can play their games on a wider range of devices (tablet, Smartphone, and desktop), without having to worry about what operating systems you have installed. It should literally work on them all!

Cherry Group who owns a range of online casinos, including Euroslots is now a major shareholder in Yggdrasil Gaming; however, their financial involvement will not affect any business decisions the company makes. Yggdrasil Gaming is therefore, still an independent software company.

Conclusion

This innovative company have come up with a unique concept that we think will be popular with players. Online Casinos looking for one software provider may not be interested in their software programme yet; however, we think the larger sites that use multiple gaming software programmes will lap them up.

They will be continuously adding new games over the next couple of years, and we will be interested to see if they decide to also branch out into video slot and table games.
