Sweden casino games provider Yggdrasil Gaming has begun preparation to enter the regulated online market in Italy. Yggdrasil Gaming is preparing for obtaining a license from the Italian gambling regulator. Yggdrasil Gaming’s games and gaming platforms are testing to exacting technical requirements of the market in the country.
Eleven popular Yggdrasil’s slots, including Dark Joker Rizes, Viking Go Wild and Holmes and the Stolen Stones, are planned for release in the second quarter of 2017.
Italian gambling operators will have an access to Yggdrasil’s game studio, as well as to the marketing tools from Yggdrasil.
‘It is time to cross the Rubicon by our company. Italy – an important milestone, one of the fastest growing gaming markets. We are already in talks with several large operators,’ the head of Yggdrasil Gaming Fredrik Elmqvist said
Yggdrasil has already obtained licenses in Great Britain, Malta, Gibraltar, and Romania. The company won Slot Provider of the Year at the 2016 EGR B2B Awards, the latest in a growing list of accolades including Gaming Software Supplier of the Year at the 2016 International Gaming Awards, and Software Rising Star at the 2015 EGR B2B Awards.
