Yggdrasil Scoops Innovator Supplier of the Year Award at IGAs

The 2018 IGAs named Yggdrasil as the Innovator Supplier of the Year. This is why they won and what players in Canada have to look forward to this year.

2017 was, once again, another fine year for Yggdrasil. The online and mobile casino game creator won Innovator Supplier of the Year at the International Gaming Awards, 2018.

Judged by a panel of experts from across the industry, Yggdrasil was deemed the most worthy of the award thanks to their stellar showing in 2017. It is one of the top providers of games available to Canadian online casinos.

Yggdrasil continues to impress

Yggdrasil regularly releases new and exciting games to online casinos in Canada. Upon being named the Innovator Supplier of the Year, Yggdrasil’s Gaming CEO, Fredrik Elmqvist, had this to say1:

“This is a fantastic acknowledgement of all [the team’s] hard work over the past twelve months.”

The 2018 award marks continued appraisal for Yggdrasil at the IGAs. In 2017, the IGAs named Yggdrasil Innovator of the Year, and in 2016 it won the Gaming Software Supplier of the Year.

A year of great gaming for players in Canada

Yggdrasil is one of the leading games providers to many of the top rated online casinos in Canada. Last year was particularly impressive for its performance. Over 2017, Yggdrasil released 12 new games to casinos in Canada, which boasted innovative ways to play and exciting features. As is the way with Yggdrasil, all its games are stunning to look at, fun to play, and held a high RTP.

The year started with Alchymedes, Beauty & the Beast, and Chibeasties 2. The long-awaited sequel to Chibeasties was very well met by Canadian players.

Then more great titles hit the casinos. Power Plant, Sunny Shores, Spina Colada, and Rainbow Ryan are all thrilling games. One of the most popular games in Canada released in 2017 is the Ancient Egyptian-themed Valley of Gods. Jungle Books quickly followed. It has page-turning features and characters from the Rudyard Kipling novel.

Pumpkin Smash and Reptoids came out towards the end of the year. Finally, alongside the Canadian cinematic release of Murder on the Orient Express, came Orient Express.

There’s even more to come

Yggdrasil hit the headlines earlier this month thanks to their 1.9 million Joker Millions jackpot being won at LeoVegas2. More recently, one of their next upcoming games was announced online.

Currently at ICE, Yggdrasil is showcasing all its upcoming products and innovations for 2018. One game which has been confirmed is Easter Island3. With expanding reels and symbol swap respins, Easter Island is set to be another big hit in Canada.
