Vera&John Will Provide Yggdrasil Gaming Mobile GamesJanuary 9th, 2014
Unless you are of Norse descent, don’t try and pronounce it. Just know that Yggdrasil Gaming will be coming to a bright blue casino near you soon.
Don’t worry, Vera&John have not suddenly reverted back to the Scandinavian roots and worshipped at the feet of Odin’s tree. Instead they have partnered with a delightfully new and unique casino software provider who intrigue us. And it’s not just because they’ve taken a very mystical, if unpronounceable, name.
The first we heard of Yggdrasil Gaming was back in February 2013 when we heard a casino had licensed their casino games. It wasn’t a casino we cared about, so we moved swiftly on and forget about it all. There is only so much brain space in the world.
Imagine our surprise when, a full year later, we find that one of our favourite casinos, Vera&John, will be integrating their full suite of casino games as on the 28th of January. Suddenly, we started to pay attention.
Who is Yggdrasil Gaming?
Turns out that back when we first heard about them was when they first launched. So a fairly new casino software company. Now before you walk away and go ‘Oh no, not another iGaming2Go‘ stop for a second. If that had been the case we would have used the words ‘delightful‘ and ‘unique‘ in the paragraphs above right? So clearly this new kid on the block is more than your average new mobile casino software.
Exclusive: 10 Free Spins on Starburst, No Deposit
Because for one, it’s not a mobile casino software. It’s a casino software providing online casino games that it has ALSO turned mobile. But they started with a vision to create a wonderful selection of instant win and lottery games for online, including Keno, Bingo and Scratchcards.
These currently include 23 casino games, all of which Vera&John will add to their portfolio, plus a few more. We’ve heard along the grapevine that Vera&John casino will play host to some unique slots and games, which you’ll only be able to play at their casino and no where else. If we hear more we will certainly let you know.
Fredrik Elmqvist, chief executive of Yggdrasil Gaming, had this to say on the subject:
“Not only will [Vera & John] be able to access our entire content library and localised games, they will also be able to take advantage of the new games we are designing now and preparing to launch in the future. We are delivering one game a month at the moment and that will only speed up as we progress.”
So not a whole lot, other than we can expect at least one new game a month. Always good news.
What Does this Mean for Mobile & Vera&John Casino?
Well, if you are a slot player, not much. Currently they only have one video slot, and it’s not mobile. But hey, an aggressive growing company like Yggdrasil (seriously, more vowels, less consonants please) is bound to leap into this field in the future.
Exclusive: 100% up to £/$/€500
What you can almost certainly expect is a larger and better selection of mobile scratchcards and mobile Keno. The first sends wonderful happy thoughts to our casino brains, as we are quite found of the occasional scratch. It’s not an every day occurrence we grant you, but nowhere do scratchcards feel like the real thing but on the touch screen of our Android phone, as we have a quick scratch on our way to the office. When you can’t depend on your WiFi to gamble more than a few spins or hands, a scratch will do.
Slot fans don’t despair. They also have a selection of online games called Video Scratch. It’s scratchards (some going to a cool million) but you have to match symbols, have ‘free rounds’ and a ‘gamble’ feature. Sound familiar? The graphics on some of these games are also impressive and well thought out.
It’s not quite slots or table games, but we are excited to see what Yggdrasil Gaming and Vera&John mobile casino will have to offer us soon.
If you’ve not heard of Vera&John, why not read our casino review? Alternatively, head straight over to this great mobile casino and use our exclusive offer to play 10 free spins on Starburst and 100% up to £/$/€500 deposit bonus.
