Obviously the numbers are great for Yggdrasil, I think what they doing great is the marketing and spreading their products around.

I checked the New Yggdrasil slots within a few months. And I feel that the quality of the games are upgraded. But, the wins are difficult to be big. I think that Yggdrasil slots are good for fun and wagering.

Probably, Yggdrasil slots will get more popular in the future too.

They are once again proving how well they are doing. That's quite an improvement and I'm sure that the future holds many more success stories for Yggdrasil.
