Exciting Game Concepts
Business Manager at DreamTech Gaming Halvor Dahl commented on the mechanics:
“We’re thrilled to further extend our partnership with Yggdrasil and to utilise their highly successful mechanics in upcoming releases.
With access to Yggdrasil Gaming’s exciting mechanical framework, DreamTech Gaming will be able to further build on our already highly successful partnership and offer new and exciting game concepts combined with our state-of-the-art graphics and design.”
Details of Yggdrasil Gaming’s slot mechanics and their functionality in what they bring to the gaming table have been provided by the software firm below:
- Gigablox, featuring in Lucky Nekoand Hades, is all about gigantic symbols appearing on the reels leading to massive wins when stacked.
- Splitz™, incorporated into Temple Stacks, Neon Rush and Syncronite, splits mystery symbols on the reels for more ways, extra scatters, longer lines or bigger clusters.
- MultiMAX™ made its debut in Multifly! and sees multipliers accumulate on the reels for cascading wins.
Managing Director at Bang Bang Games Frank McPolin added:
“Bang Bang Games could not be more excited about the opportunity to leverage the Yggdrasil mechanical frameworks.
We are huge fans of the games Yggdrasil has already released with these frameworks, and big admirers of how they are going about the business of building them into recognisable brands.
Our game design goblins are currently locked away in the Bang Bang dungeons and will be tirelessly flogged until they emerge with something amazing. We look forward to bringing our own twist to these incredible mechanics.”
YG Masters is one of the fastest growing iGaming development studio programs in the industry and this latest proposition further enhances the program’s reputation across the world’s largest regulated gambling markets.
What’s more, the revolutionary toolkit provided by Yggdrasil; GATI technology, enables new and established slot studios to not only develop exciting content, but to do also develop more quickly, efficiently and with guaranteed distribution across Yggdrasil Gaming’s operator partner network.
Head of Partner Programs at Yggdrasil Stuart McCarthy explained more about the move and why the firm decided to add the mechanics to its partner program:
“The competition in the slots market is immense. Using recognised and successful mechanical frameworks at the heart of a game is key to attracting players and turbo charging the game performance so this was a natural next step for us to take.
Our proprietary mechanics have been a revelation this year, so much so that we have had to recalibrate what successful releases look like.
Driven by these triumphs we are thrilled to now share this opportunity exclusively with our YG Masters partners.
We are excited to see the first titles in this new wave of games launch in 2021, helping our studio partners grow and expand their offerings and delivering on our shared vision.”
