With 2018 behind us, online casino content developer Yggdrasil Gaming has released its Q4 financial report that shows tremendous growth and revenues which reached all-time high levels. The company is proud to end another exciting year and will focus on its further global expansion and strategic business development.
The latest success for the company was the launch of a new business vertical, YGS Masters.
This initiative is all about collaboration with independent studios to develop and distribute gaming content on its own platform. Identifying and partnering with the world’s leading studios to curate, develop and distribute high volume, high-quality games to its customers puts Yggdrasil at the forefront of cutting-edge slots content technology and gamification.
Rabcat, Northern Lights and Fantasma Games became the first adopters during 2018, being joined by Avatar UX and 4ThePlayer at the beginning of 2019. Yggdrasil also launched 18 new games including the third game in the immensely successful Vikings series, Vikings Go to Hell, as well as their first branded game in collaboration with Nitro Circus.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO and founder of Yggdrasil, commented this huge success.
“YGS, together with our own offering, enables us to provide the best games and end player user experience in the industry. I am thrilled on the outcome of these initiatives, and how they will support us in creating synergies with our current product portfolio and in-game promotional tools”
