Yggdrasil Gaming was formed in 2012/2013 by Fredrik Elmqvist, the former CEO of Net Entertainment. Yggdrasil is a Swedish company and has its headquarters in Stockholm, but in reality, most of its game design is carried out in Malta. This sector is a tough one to break into and Yggdrasil Gaming has been extraordinarily successful in both breaking in and rising in stature as a serious player.
Yggdrasil has 93 slot games that are available for all types of devices. The company has also started to develop table games. At the moment the company has only developed a single roulette game. They have also produced three blackjack games. So, Yggdrasil is gradually moving from solely offering slots with the addition of a limited number of table games too.
The best thing about Yggdrasil games is the phenomenally good graphics which would not look out of place in a top-quality animated movie.
Very importantly Yggdrasil takes responsible gambling very seriously, and they make sure that the company complies with responsible gaming best practices. Games are made especially for regulated markets and have all the features that may be required to adhere to regulations. The company also contributes to Gamble Aware every year.
Top 10 Favorite Yggdrasil Games
This is our selection of the top ten Yggdrasil games.
1. Valley of The Gods
This Egyptian themed slot Valley of The Gods has proved a firm favorite and has five reels, three rows, with a massive 3125 pay lines. There are ten symbols used but watch out for the Horus God, this is the one with the biggest prizes. The RTP is 96.2%. The bets per spin range from £10 to £100. You also get the possibility of having bonus re-spins. Other features include a 2x multiplier and an extra-lives mode. You can see why this is such a popular slot game.
- Additional features add variety to the game
- You can play it on all devices
- Fantastic Graphics
- We miss the wild and scatter symbols
- Difficult to clear blockers
2. Holmes and the Stolen Stones
Who doesn’t like Sherlock Holmes? In Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot, which was released back in 2015, we have a long-running game that is still one of the player’s favorites. It is a much simpler game with it has 20 lines and a maximum win of £24,000. Yet the RTP remains at a pretty good 96.8%. This game runs great on mobiles having recently been optimized. You get the chance for free spins on getting the required winning line. There is also a feature I like which is the gems which can be collected as you play. Put simply, the more gems you collect, the greater the chance of a jackpot.
- Five Progressive Jackpots
- Two ways you can start off the Free Spins
- Bonus Game with Cash prizes
- I miss not having wild cards
- Steep learning curve
Joining the Yggdrasil lineup in 2020 we have the MultiFly slot. With this game, there are 243 different ways to win a prize. Not only that but the RTP is 96.3%. Believe it or not, the maximum win is £700,000, and you could win that in just a few seconds. The game has some nice features including the unlimited multiplier which can make you serious money very quickly. I also like the drop-down wins that can be activated by line up certain combinations.
- Drop Down Wins
- Unlimited Multiplier
- Can be boring
- Steep learning curve
