Yggdrasil Adds Fantasma Games to YGS Masters Program

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Internet betting game developer Yggdrasil has announced that they've partnered with Fantasma Games, and are making the studio the third to be a part of the YGS Masters development program.

The agreement will see Fantasma developing casino games that will be deployed to casino partners through Yggdrasil's platform. The games will also be given access to Yggdrasil's BOOST promotional tools, which allow the games to be pushed to punters at the various casinos. Fantasma was founded earlier this year, and they will be launching their first slate of video slots during 2019. The slots will be offered in regulated markets where Yggdrasil operates, with the existing slate of partners also getting the titles.

Commenting on the agreement Fantasma CEO Fredrik Johansson said, "We are passionate about creating slots beyond gambling and that are heavily inspired by gaming. By joining the Yggdrasil Masters program we have a great opportunity to make our games even better and to expand our reach among the best operators in Europe. We are excited to begin this cooperation and to further develop our ideas with Yggdrasil as the leader in slot innovation. We are confident this will take Fantasma Games to new heights."

Yggdrasil's Stuart McCarthy also commented, noting: "We look forward to working with this talented team where we actively will be engaged in nurturing their creative ideas and bringing exciting new content to the market.

"We have been impressed with what we have seen on their roadmap and believe this cooperation will bring excellent added value to our clients. Combining Fantasma's strong content with our extensive market penetration is a winning concept. This long-term relationship marks a great step for YGS masters as we continue to add world-class game developer teams to our program."

That becomes a common move these days, a top developer add a lesser known or a newer one like in this case, if I'm not mistaken Microgaming doing that for years and obviously YGS has the same idea,
