Yggdrasil secures entry to an important market.
Swedish online gambling software developer Yggdrasil Gaming has been awarded the licences required by the UK Gambling Commission to offer its proprietary gaming platform and games to British residents.
The company, which has offices in Malta and Poland, has signed up a number of online casino operators around Europe and its rapidly expanding games catalogue has reportedly been performing well with partner operators.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil, said Wednesday: “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.
“I actually believe that the UK slots market will develop like some Nordic markets have done over the past seven years. Quality and mobile will drive the UK slots market forward and we’re looking forward to being an active part of that.”
Mario Petraglia, head of legal and compliance at Yggdrasil, added: “We have already certified [our] games and platform according to UK remote technical standards. We look forward to a long standing co-operation with the UK Gambling Commission for the mutual goal of offering exciting and safe entertainment to British players”.
