About the company

The full legal name of this provider is Yggdrasil Gaming Ltd. However, in the gambling world, it’s known as Yggdrasil Gaming or Yggdrasil for short. The company was founded in 2013 and in the space of two years has managed to open the offices in Poland, Sweden, Gibraltar, and Malta. The head development office is in the Polish city of Krakow and the headquarters is in Sliema (Malta).

Up to 2018, the company’s most popular products are beautiful video slots (a couple of years ago Yggdrasil also had scratch card games and keno but there was a few of them and those games aren’t included in the modern portfolio). Such focused specialization allows achieving the highest level of attention to detail and the best quality possible. Still, the company is working on new games development and in 2018 the new 3D table games suite was announced.

As on May 2018, the company’s portfolio consists of 45 modern video slots (frankly, not the widest range of choice). But according to Fredrik Elmqvist (Yggdrasil Gaming’s founder and CEO) the company isn’t rushing to be the biggest, it’s striving to be the best.

Despite the provider’s “young” age, Yggdrasil Gaming has already won several most prestigious awards in the gambling industry including “Slot Provider of the Year” EGR B2B Awards 2017 and “Innovator of the Year” The International Gaming Awards in 2017 and 2018.

Yggdrasil Software

Yggdrasil offers one of the best software solutions in the entire online gambling industry. One thing that makes them stand out from their competitors is the iSENSE 2.0 technology which combines smooth design, cutting-edge visual effects, and maximum work output. Simply put, this technology makes all of their products look realistic and run without frame drops regardless of the device the end user is using.

Sophisticated algorithms are extremely appreciated nowadays, as scaling and improving performance are the two main issues tech-related companies face. Yggdrasil solves them with their Boost suite and automatically scaled x-plat games.

If your business operates across numerous multilingual countries, Yggdrasil might be a great solution for you. All of their games come in over 30 languages, which might be the reason why customers choose you over your competitors who are offering only one or two languages.

Some of their most popular games are:

  • Joker Millions
  • Jungle Books
  • Bicicleta
  • All kinds of table games

The three slot machines listed here are a perfect representation of how far technology has come. They feature incredible animations and 3D graphics, animated backgrounds, and realistic sound effects.

Yggdrasil API Integration

As you can tell from everything we talked about in the previous section, Yggdrasil is something truly different from everything else on the market at the moment. They use a unique HTML5 framework called iSENSE 2.0 for development, which ensures their products are lightning fast. The difference between this and Flash games is incredible, and you can experience that by integrating SoftGamings unified API into your website.

All you need to do is contact us, discuss the terms and bundles with us, and allow us to do all the work. One important thing to keep in mind is that everything is customisable. Our developers are highly skilled professionals who have considerable experience of working with this particular technology, allowing us to perform any task and customise anything you want.

You’re probably wondering why we use the word “unified” for our API. That’s because it contains over 50 software providers, all of which are available to you after our first and only integration is completed. If you decide to go live with new providers at some point, minor changes will be needed. Finally, it’s important to mention the back office — one of the most powerful aspects of our API that provides all the information you need to grow your business and customise your business plan.

The key aspects of Yggdrasil Gaming

The games developed by Yggdrasil Gaming are full of pleasant surprises both for operators and gamblers, which makes this provider’s soft a super profitable investment.

The operators will definitely appreciate the “Boost” — a great suite of promo tools including the in-game tournaments, “Brag” — the first ever tool allowing gamblers share their wins via social media, “Missions” — a helpful gamification element, which will significantly increase the players’ engagement, and “Cash Race” — a tool allowing the operator to launch cash drop tournaments that will be active over a specific period of time.

Besides all that, the “White Label Studios” helps the operators create the fully customized and 100% unique video slots for their casinos. Such games not only will boost the brand credibility but also will pay off quickly as each game will be developed with a specific target audience in mind.

As for the players, they will enjoy both the ultra-modern design combined with stunning visuals and dozens of unique bonus features that will change from game to game.

Most of the modern providers equip their slots with the free spins mode or a bonus round (or both of those features at very best). Yggdrasil Gaming is nothing like that. Every single slot has something special in it: “sticky”, “traveling” or “expanding” wilds, “expanding” and “synched” reels, respins, multipliers, fire blasts etc. Such a variety keeps the games fascinating and engaging, the gamblers keep playing over and over again. These beautiful and well-executed slots just don’t bore the audience.


As on May 2018, Yggdrasil Gaming offers its partners only video slots. Each of the 45 available games has its own theme, gameplay specifics, and a unique design.

Joker Millions

A pooled jackpot by Yggdrasil. A classic fruit slot with several nice bonus features. The first one is “freeze” + respin (the reels with a winning combo on them freeze and those that are left spin once again to increase the possible winning amount). Another one is a “column multiplier” (if the reels have the same game symbols on them the winning amount multiplies). More important than that, is the “jackpot spin” (the gambler needs to fill in the whole field with jokers).

Jungle Books

This revolutionary slot is inspired by Kipling’s stories and the Disney’s cartoon. Each of 5 slot’s characters (Mowgli, the tiger, the panther, the bear, and the snake) activates two special bonus features. The game field moves around the jungle so that the gambler could try out the bonuses of each and every one of the characters.
The characters may appear alone or have a guest appearance in the other character’s realm (in this case the bonus features will combine). The “Jungle Books” has 45 bonus features in total. No other provider can offer something similar.


A striking football-themed slot. When the silver trophy appears on the reels (even only one of them) the gambler receives a random award (coins or free spins). During the free spins round the silver trophy will either turn one of the reels into several sticky wilds or will award a player with a random number of extra free spins. As for the game symbols with striking players, they will also turn into sticky wilds.

Table games

In late 2017 the company has announced that Yggdrasil’s team is developing the immerse 3D table games suite (right now only NetEnt has something similar).

The first game to hit the market is “Sonya Blackjack”. The operators will be able to try it in 2018. A bit later Yggdrasil Gaming will also launch baccarat and roulette. Just by looking at the official trailer you can say that the new games will be as thought out and high quality as all of the previous games developed by this provider.

Technologies and integration

Yggdrasil Gaming remains popular and successful due to the constant attention to the latest tech trends. Unlike its rivals that usually ignore this aspect or use the best public practices, Yggdrasil’s team is constantly developing not only games but also gambling software solutions. The most famous technologies created by Yggdrasil include iSENSE 2.0 — a base for all of the provider’s games, Infinite API — a gamification solution, and Fusion Realms — an in-game mechanics allowing to combine different reel sets and features in one slot.

The integration of any kind of Yggdrasil’s software always leads to the casino being a “mediator” between the provider’s servers (where all of the games remain) and the gambler.

The whole integration process can be quite a troublesome matter for the operator. That’s why a one-time seamless integration is one of the best and most profitable solutions. And the team of Softgaming’s experts can definitely help you with that! The seamless integration with Softgamings has several advantages including minimal time and money expenditures, a one-time adjustment, an ability to choose the wallet system, an easy integration of all the new providers.

Mobile Gambling

In 2014 Yggdrasil’s team has said goodbye to Flash and started using HTML5. And starting from June 2017 all of the company’s games are developed on iSENSE 2.0 (unique HTML5 framework), which provides the mobile gamblers with several super important advantages.

First of all, iSENSE 2.0 has solved the “auto sleep” problem on mobile devices during the auto spins.

Secondly, the loading time is now quicker than ever.

Thirdly, the framework helped to improve the UI of all the games, which makes mobile games super comfortable.


Right from the start, the company’s major concerns were the excellent quality of the final product and the software’s security. That’s why Yggdrasil Gaming has received it’s first license in 2013 and during the last 5 years also got the licenses in the UK, Malta, Romania, and Gibraltar. The provider’s games are also licensed in Italy.

Besides that, the companies information security management system is audited by the independent auditors every single year, which means Yggdrasil Gaming meets all of the highest modern security standards.
