Reflex Gaming has secured a deal with Yggdrasil that will see the UK-based omni-channel studio incorporate the group’s Gigablox mechanic within its future games development.

The supplier becomes the latest Yggdrasil partner to sign up to the framework agreement, after joining YG Masters in June 2020 and distributing its first title via the program five months later.

Gigablox enables reels to spawn gigantic blocks up to 6×6 stacked, which are designed to lead to potentially heightened wins as well as enabling GigaBlox battles.

“Through the YG Masters program, we have been able to streamline the development process, allowing us to focus on the game design and enabling us to launch exciting titles to a new audience. We have a full game launch schedule for 2021, with some epic releases coming,” explained Mat Ingram, CPO at Reflex Gaming.

“We are really impressed with what Yggdrasil has done on their games using these mechanics. Our game design team already has ideas on how to deploy these clever slot mechanics on our own upcoming games.”

Reflex Gaming joins a wave of YG Masters partners to sign up to Yggdrasil’s framework agreement following the launch of the new offering late last year. Gigablox has featured in several games, including Lucky Neko and Hades.

Yggdrasil’s framework offering is part of its YG Masters program, enabling studios to create and distribute gaming content using its GATI technology. GATI is a preconfigured, regulation-ready development toolkit, which allows studios and game developers to apply standardised technology to develop and distribute games around the world.

Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programs at Yggdrasil, added: “By offering our proven mechanics to our YG Masters partners they can launch new games knowing they will appeal to global players. 

“YG Masters help our partners rapidly develop content for distribution to our vast operator network, while within our framework offering, studios can elevate their portfolios even further.

“Our partnership with Reflex Gaming is going from strength-to-strength and we are excited to see the upcoming titles they will deliver with the Gigablox mechanic to further fuel their success.”
