Yggdrasil Expands Italian Reach with Microgame Distribution Deal


Online casino games and related solutions supplier Yggdrasil has teamed up with major iGaming platform provider Microgame in a move that will help Yggdrasil grow its presence in Italy through its new partner’s extensive operator network in this lucrative market.

Under a recently signed software licensing and reseller agreement, Microgame’s more than 37 operator partners will be provided with access to 80 of Yggdrasil’s gaming titles, including new releases Multifly, Arthur’s Fortune, and Lightning Joker as well as the hugely popular Vikings trilogy.

The deal also covers online casino games developed through Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program.

Microgame’s operator partners will additionally gain access to titles that feature Yggdrasil’s innovative new mechanic Splitz, which the company unveiled late last year. The first game to feature the mechanic was Temple Stacks: Splitz. It will too become available to Microgame’s clients and their players, along with Neon Rush: Splitz.

And in addition to that, Microgame and its operator partners will be provided with access to Yggdrasil’s upcoming new release Lucky Neko, a title that will introduce the supplier’s new Gigablox feature.

Aside from gaming content, the deal between Microgame and Yggdrasil covers the latter company’s set of in-game promotional tools BOOST.
