- Jackpotjoy Group deal announced this week by Yggdrasil
- Danish casinos will offer full Yggdrasil game portfolio
A fresh batch of exciting slot games will be available to Danish players via InterCasino and Vera & John after developer Yggdrasil Gaming confirmed a partnership deal with online gambling operators Jackpotjoy Group.
In addition to the new selection of casino games, both Vera & John and InterCasino will have access to Yggdrasil’s innovative in-game promotional tools and social media sharing technology.
Deal brings Yggdrasil to Denmark for first time
Denmark has been one of Europe’s leaders in creating a safe and fully regulated online gaming market for its players, operating what Yggdrasil’s CEO Fredrik Elmqvist refers to as a “sensible and workable regulatory framework”.
In teaming with online casino specialists Jackpotjoy Group, Yggdrasil has instant access to this desirable market through two top Danish gaming brands: Vera & John and InterCasino.
Now it plans to get a firm hold within the Danish gambling sector for the first time.
“Our flexible platform and structured operation mean we welcome regulatory developments in Denmark and beyond, and are in a strong position to adapt to requirements,” said Elmqvist.
Online demand passes land based gaming in Denmark
During 2016, Danish Gambling Authority figures show that Denmark’s online gambling sector accounted for between 63 and 65% of total gross gaming revenue, outstripping land-based betting by around two thirds to one.
There is a huge demand for online casinos and betting in the nation, and international gaming brands are embracing those opportunities by creating partnerships throughout Europe.
The fastest growing sector of this market is online gambling machines, with an incredible 72% revenue growth in 2016’s fourth quarter.
This includes the slots and electronic casino games which Yggdrasil is so well known for.
The savvy developer looks set to enter the market at just the right time, bringing exciting new content to a growing online audience.
What can players expect from the partnership?
The deal will open Yggdrasil’s full slot and casino portfolio up to both Vera & John and InterCasino platforms, with the games available for online and mobile play.
This means players will get to try some of the year’s most exciting slot releases within the next few weeks – including the Kipling-inspired Jungle Books slot which launched late last month.
Jungle Books features characters from the classic tale, including Mowgli, Bagheera, Baloo, Kaa and Shere Khan, and it is set in a dark and mysterious jungle.
Each character has their own bonus, linked to the realm of the jungle they control, and players can stack and combine different bonus types to increase wins dramatically.
Valley of the Gods
Yggdrasil’s summer release slots will also be available, including the instant hit Valley of the Gods which launched in August.
The Ancient Egypt themed slot features hieroglyphs and idols, and has expanding reels that create up to 3,125 ways to win.
Watch out for the Blocker bonus, which covers key reel positions with blocks that can be undone by landing winning combinations.
Release all of the scarabs from their blocks to earn multipliers, respins and extra lives – with some huge prizes possible!
BOOST™ and BRAG™ technology
As well as unlocking a ton of cool new slots and casino games, the partnership gives InterCasino and Vera & John access to the Yggdrasil in-game sharing and promotion tools.
The software allows campaigns and spot prizes to be issued within the game, helps users share their achievements and wins to social media, and gives operators a new channel with which to interact with their players during their games.
