From the 22nd December 2015, Yggdrasil finally got their UK licence which allows them to more easily release their games in UK based casinos.
Yggdrasil Slots In The UK
Up until this point, Yggdrasil have only been available at casinos which operate outside of the UK. All casinos within the UK are regulated by the UKGC, the regulatory gambling body in the UK. But many are maintained and run from abroad.
From December 22nd, slots made by Yggdrasil Gaming will now be available to be hosted on casinos that are run by UK companies.
We're a big fan of Yggdrasil's slots. They've created some great slots over the years including: Holmes and the Stolen Stones, Nirvana and Vikings Go Wild. They're a great slots maker, but until now, their range of casinos have been cut very narrow. With this new licence, we expect that their availability will start to reach much further than they have managed to so far.
Casinos Already Opening Their Doors
This increased availability was echoed by Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil, “The UK is a very important market and thanks to the way our games are performing, we’ve already received six signed clients and a great deal of interest”.
This is amazing news and we can't wait to see who picks up the work of this very talented developer. Any casino would be crazy to turn them down, so until then, we wait with baited breath for Yggdrasil slots to start taking over in the new year.
