Online gaming content publisher Yggdrasil has signed a multi-year igaming content distribution agreement with IGT.
The deal grants IGT exclusive access to a selected number of Yggdrasil’s online slots for distribution to US and Canadian operator partners where igaming is permitted, marking the publisher’s entry into the North American market.
Titles from the publisher’s portfolio include Vikings Go Wild, Valley of the Gods, and Cazino Zeppelin.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil, commented: “Yggdrasil continues to deliver on its growth strategy, and US and Canada are key territories for driving continued sustainable long-term growth, and shareholder value.
“We are delighted to partner up with IGT, the world’s leading gaming supplier, who will have exclusive territorial distribution rights for a selected number of our best-in-class Yggdrasil game titles.
“As the online gaming market continues to expand in North America, we look forward to supporting IGT’s PlayCasino customers to realize their goals through our player-centric, highly entertaining, and iconic games.”
IGT expects to feature the first Yggdrasil game on its platform in December 2021.
Enrico Drago, IGT CEO Digital & Betting, added: “Partnering with high-performing game developers such as Yggdrasil Gaming is a pillar of IGT PlayDigital’s growth strategy and an additional differentiator of the IGT PlayCasino value proposition.
“Yggdrasil Gaming’s artistic talents, passion for innovation, and commitment to quality and performance shine through in all their games and we believe Yggdrasil games will complement our player-favorite IGT PlayCasino games.”
