Yggdrasil expands in Italy with Microgame content partnership

Yggdrasil has announced a new partnership with Microgame in a deal which will see its content become available to the platform provider’s operator network in Italy.

As part of the deal, the software licensing and reseller agreement will grant Microgame’s operator partners access to 80 of Yggdrasil’s games from its portfolio which includes Multifly, Arthur’s Fortune and Lightning Joker as well as Vikings trilogy and games developed through its YG Masters programme.

Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil, said: “Microgame is a leading platform supplier in Italy and through this partnership we will considerably expand our reach in the country together with its premium operator partners.

“Our games have already proven hugely successful with local players since we entered the market in 2017 and we are excited to be able to offer our portfolio to an even wider customer group together with Microgame.”

Furthermore, operators will be able to offer games featuring Yggdrasil’s Splitz mechanic, which includes Temple Stacks: Splitz and Neon Rush: Splitz and its upcoming game Lucky Neko, which includes the supplier’s new Gigablox feature.

Microgame partners will also gain access to Yggradril’s in-game promotional tools BOOST.

Marco Castaldo, CEO at Microgame, said: “By adding Yggdrasil’s leading content to our platform we will significantly enhance our offering with innovative and engaging titles that appeal to a wide demographic of players.

“Yggdrasil is one of the industry’s most prominent suppliers and we look forward to a successful partnership.”
