Yggdrasil inks content deal with Microgame



Swedish online gaming solutions provider Yggdrasil has considerably expanded its reach in Italy after inking a software licensing and reseller agreement with the country’s leading gaming service provider, Microgame.

The new partnership will see 80 of the provider’s games from its award-winning portfolio made available to Microgame’s expansive operator partner network in the Southern European country.

Players in Italy will now have access to games such as the recently-released Lightning Joker, complete with the first-ever turbo spin and wins up to 10,000x stake, along with Multifly, and the medieval-themed, Arthur’s Fortune.

Microgame’s 37-plus operator partners will also be able to offer the wildly successful Vikings trilogy, including Vikings Go To Hell, Vikings Go Wild and Vikings Go Berzerk, as well as games developed via the provider’s flagship YG Masters program.

Splitz, Gigablox and Boost: 

Additionally, games that feature Yggdrasil’s innovative new Splitz mechanic, including the premier titles Temple Stacks: Splitz and Neon Rush: Splitz, and, set to be launched on June 24, Lucky Neko, a classical Japan-inspired game complete with Gigablox, the supplier’s new feature that uses oversized symbols to pull in more paylines.

If that wasn’t enough, Boost, the Cherry AB games supplier’s in-game promotional tool, will also be made available to Microgame partners in Italy.
