Yggdrasil reached a partnership agreement with the Spanish operator, Casino Barcelona Online. Thus, the provider from Sweden enters the Spanish market for its first time. Yggdrasil will offer its full portfolio that includes games such as ‘Golden Fish Tank’ or ‘Valley of the Gods’, and of course the famous series of ‘Vikings’.
Casino Barcelona Online operates via its website, casinobarcelona.es, and it is the online branch of the famous land-based Casino Barcelona. The operator is officially licensed by Spain’s National Gambling Commission, so it gives Yggdrasil the opportunity to extend its presence to a regulated, and most importantly, upcoming market.
The Swedish supplier’s CEO, Fredrik Elmqvist, commented that his company is very delighted with the finalization of this deal as Yggdrasil is ‘opening the doors’ to a new market. Elmqvist underlined the importance of being introduced to the new market by one of its leaders, Casino Barcelona, and he looks forward to forming new alliances within Spain.
On Casino Barcelona Online’s behalf, the director, Xavier Ballester stated that his firm is continuing its strategy of including high-quality providers at its library of games with the significant addition of Yggdrasil.
Yggdrasil was founded in 2013 in Sweden and has since emerged as one of the industry’s most valued and award-winning providers. Yggdrasil has taken its name from the sacred ‘World Tree’ of the Norse mythology and it literally means ‘Odin’s horse’. No wonder why the company has chosen to call its most prestigious slots game by the name ‘Vikings’. In addition to slots, Yggdrasil creates table games and Bingo. The company owns three gaming studios named Yggdrasil White Label Studios, YGS Masters and Yggdrasil Dragons. The Swedish provider holds licenses in four different regions, namely Malta, the UK, Romania and Gibraltar. Yggdrasil has focused on a strategy of innovative ideas combined with excellent quality products and technology advancements which has brought the firm at the summit of the industry in just a few years.
