Online gaming site Casino Room is not content with offering its players a huge catalogue featuring more than 500 titles. With the help of Scandinavian software designers Yggdrasil, it is expanding its selection of games even more. There are over 20 exciting new titles to try from the full range of Yggdrasil’s premium portfolio!
Yggdrasil has developed a strong reputation for crafting games that are not only fun to play time and time again, but gorgeous to look at. Here are some of the top offerings from the full range.
The Nirvana video slot offers players a soothing, zen-like experience. It has 20 paylines over five reels, which spin accompanied by a beautiful, calming soundscape. The game features a wild symbol and a free spin scatter icon. Landing three or more of the latter will trigger the free spins feature, which has three game modes.
Wild Seeds will shower the reels with up to four wild symbols, Mega Reel creates three synced reels, while the Nudge Reels mode will shunt the reels slightly for maximum results. The Cazino Zeppelin video slot takes place on board a steampunk airship, with a host of eclectic characters to try to beat at the casino tables.
With five reels and 20 paylines, its hand-drawn, manga art style matches the theme perfectly. The free spins bonus round is triggered if three or more of the scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels, with a maximum of 20 free spins available. If there are any wilds on the reels when the bonus round begins, they’ll remain fixed in position.
Vikings Go Wild and its sequel, Vikings Go Berzerk, bring a cinematic style to this series of online slots that tells the stories of brave Nordic warriors who are pitted against the perils of the sea while seeking new lands and treasures. The first game features the Vikings fighting a giant sea monster, while the sequel sees them sparring with the temping sirens and their dizzying song.
Both games have five reels and 25 paylines, while Vikings Go Berzerk introduces a new ‘rage meter’ linked to the individual characters. When the meter is filled, it triggers the free spins mode as the Vikings attack the sirens with a guaranteed win.
Yggdrasil’s reputation for great games has not gone unrecognised or unrewarded by the gaming industry. In 2016 it scooped the Slot Provider of the Year trophy at the EGR B2B Awards in London, and retained the title in 2017. These were great moments for the firm, which was established only in 2013, managing as it did to win ahead of slot providers such as Playtech, IGT and Microgaming.
Company CEO Fredrik Elmqvist commented in 2016:
"Winning Software Rising Star at last year’s EGR B2B Awards was absolutely fantastic and we could only dream that a year on we would be voted Slot Provider of the Year. This really is a huge award for us to win – you just have to look at the other nominees to see what an important category it is. I’d like to thank everyone who has worked so hard to make this possible. We’ve got an absolutely brilliant team and this award will only spur us on to work even harder to create the very best products for our customers."
Yggdrasil also collected the iGaming Software Supplier Award at the 2016 International Gaming Awards, and Best Innovator the following year. Remarking on the 2017 win, Elmqvist said:
"Innovation is in the Yggdrasil DNA, so to be recognised as Innovator of the Year is a wonderful way to start 2017. I’m very proud of our team and we continue to drive forward the slots industry with a unique approach to everything from game design to in-game promotional tools."
