It finally happened! Top mobile casino Mr Green at long last gone live with the entire portfolio of slot games from up and coming games developer Yggdrasil. The move is a coup for both parties; Mr Green will be gaining some of the freshest and most exciting new slots to come to online and mobile gaming this year, while Yggdrasil will be expanding its ever increasing exposure on one of the hottest casinos of the moment. Though the partnership was arranged in February at the ICE Conference, it has apparently taken all these months for everything necessary for the launch of the games to be finalised and arranged.
If you're unfamiliar with Yggdrasil, you can find a handy explanation of who they are and what they do over on MS4U's sister site Droid Slots (I can attest to the quality of the article, as I authored it myself). In short: Yggdrasil appeared at the start of last year, and has really made a name for itself by pushing both great content and a slick public image. Loads of big name casinos have been clamouring to feature their games, and their client list includes such popular sites as Vera&John, Leo Vegas and EuroSlots. However, Mr Green indicates a turning point, as it is the biggest casino to host Yggdrasil games, and is likely to garner the most traffic for the developer. This is one of the most significant partnerships since NetEnt and Bwin.Party teamed up.
What games to look out for
Despite still being some what of the new kid on the block, Yggdrasil Gaming has got lots of attention in the last few months both for the rapid expansion of its client base, as well as developing an already enviable lineup of video slots. Seeing as all of these will now be added to Mr Green, I thought I'd give you our tips for the top three game to look out for from Yggdrasil.
One of the older games from Yggdrasil, Jokerizer is known for regularly making a lot of people a lot of money. This completely hyperactive slot has tons of ways to win, and a special Jokerizer Spin feature which has a 106% return to player average! This 5 reel, 3 row slot may boast only 10 paylines, but it's the idea game for savvy players who know when to take a gamble and when to save. You're able to turn your modest winnings from one spin into huge winnings on the next if you know what you're doing, meaning that although this isn't a progressive jackpot slot, you can still get those 5 and 6 figure wins from it!
Released at the very start of this year – back when it really was the depth of winter – the coolness of Winterberries hasn't thawed through the summer months (I'm trying out awful puns… how am I doing?). This game shows Yggdrasil's creative implementation and continuity of theme throughout their games, with features like frozen winlines which keep winning symbols frozen in place as you respin, allowing for further wins to take place. All this teamed with other features like a column multiplier and the fantastic graphics – which are the trademark of Yggdrasil – make Winterberries a great choice for Mr Green players.
No, I'm not advocating the consumption of psychoactive fungi by recommending that game – that you do by your prerogative and at your own risk. I just like the shiny colours and flashing lights – again, to clarify, I'm talking about the game… The game is still a bit trippy though, as the symbols are spread over a diamond shaped playing area, with a 3, 4, 5, 4, 3 arrangement from top left to bottom right, and 20+20 paylines. Sounds too complicated? It's really not once you get into it! We recommend this game for anyone looking for something a little different. Pay special attention to the soundtrack too – it's particularly good!
