After applying for a UK gambling license Yggdrasil Games are slowly, but surely, making their way to slots players screens. Here's why you should be excited.
Back in January 2016 we wrote an interview with Yggdrasil Gaming CEO Fredrik Elmqvist.
This up an coming slots provider had lots of interesting things to say, namely the fact that they had been granted a license by the UK gambling regulatory body, meaning their online and mobile slots were imminent.
Now we know that not everyone who reads LuckyMobileSlots.com is from our little island, but we are. So it’s exciting.
Watching hundreds of others enjoy what are some of the most intriguing up and coming slot games around has been killing us for years.
Now we get to play them as real money slots, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.
If you’re wondering why we reported the news back in January, and only now in May are starting to see the Yggdrasil slot games at UK casinos, that would be because government bodies are slow.
Shocking, we know.
Basically, just because Yggdrasil got approved for the license, didn’t mean all the games were.
They each had to be individually tested by the UK gambling commission to ensure fair play, and, well, they took their sweet ass time about it.
Lots actually, but not all will be ‘live’ with Yggdrasil slots for England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Reason being, governments might be slow, but gambling sites aren’t always that quick to add new casino games at the best of times.
So in terms of which mobile UK casinos has got the games live, that would be a total of… 6 of them. 6 out of dozens.
“We are already live with six operators in the UK and there will be more to follow in the coming months.” Stated Fredrik Elmquist.
And out of those six, there’s only one that we personally recommend, having tried and tested it.
It’s where we first got the jolt of good news that Yggdrasil mobile slots were finally making their way to our little island.
The fact that they have one of the most generous UK casino bonuses around will no doubt help you test out each and every glorious machine.
They are not exactly a bad choice. In fact, they are one of our favourites, and well worth testing out.
Most are pretty good to be honest, but of those which you can currently play in the UK, we’ve put down our top five choices:
These cute little adorable trolls are 20 paylines of pure fun, as you spin in the hope of getting the scatters and free spins.
When you do, this Chibeasties slot comes alive as one symbol will be randomly chosen to expand on the reels – the bigger the value, the easier it is to get multiple wins on all paylines.
A safe choice for those who want a quick introduction to this quirky software provider.
A wonderful example of when theme and game play fit together beautifully, making this a joy to play. The Vikings Go Wild slot game is fairly high variance, so only bold explorers should venture in these monster infested waters.
But once here, you’ll love the random cash prizes and the fact that every free spin is a real fight to the death. If the vikings beat the sea monsters, you can end up with a whole screen full of sticky wilds.
Will you reach the bliss of Nirvana in this peaceful mobile slot? Except it’s not as peaceful as you might think, because despite the pretty theme, this well balanced Nirvana slot offers some real moments of ecstasy.
Mostly that’s because it has 3 different types of wilds during the free spins features, and all you need is 2 bonus feature to get one free random re-spins.
Still quirky, and still pure Yggdrasil gold.
The darker, meaner, version of Yggdrasil Jokerizer game, it still pays both ways and has 5 paylines, but holds bigger wins and, for us, a more interesting theme.
The main event here is the Jokerizer feature, where you can gamble back your winning into richer reels, where you get more joker symbols, and easier bigger wins.
The Dark Joker Rizes slot is a little dangerous, and you have to know when to gamble, and when to cash out, but you’ll hopefully end up laughing with joy, rather than tears.
Our favourite choice by far. Why? Because in it’s simplicity, it is wonderfully contagious, as it gets under your skin with it’s funny little theme.
Another 5 payline slot, you’ll be spinning dormant virus cells that wake up when you create a winning payline from left to right, or right to left.
The symbols come stacked, which is only relevant when you find out that the main, bad, virus symbols, Cyrus, expands to cover the whole of reel 3 and is wild. You then get one free re-spin to get more wins.
And that’s the be all and end all of this Cyrus the Virus slot, but we’ve usually found that you don’t need complicated to make it good.
It’s what makes Yggdrasil gaming so brilliant; quirky graphics and sounds, mixed in with simple mechanics that bring about joyful wins.
If you haven’t already, just be grateful you can now play them at UK casinos, and one in particular.Start Playing at Leo Vegas »
