Yggdrasil Gaming obtains UK licences

Gaming and software developer Yggdrasil Gaming has been awarded the necessary licences by the UK Gambling Commission to enable the firm to offer its services to British residents.

Yggdrasil has recently extended its offerings across Europe with a host of deals signed in the latter part of this year. The firm has offices in both Malta and Poland, and will look to further extend its operations in the UK in 2016.

Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil, said: “This is a hugely exciting next phase in our development. The UK is a very important market and thanks to the way our games are performing, we’ve already received six signed clients and a great deal of interest.

“I actually believe that the UK slots market will develop like some Nordic markets have done over the past seven years. Quality and mobile will drive the UK slots market forward and we’re looking forward to being an active part of that.”

Mario Petraglia, Head of Legal and Compliance at Yggdrasil, added: “We have already certified games and platform according to UK remote technical standards. We fully appreciate the efforts the UK Gambling Commission puts in balancing the need to protect players with the latest technological developments and an industry striving for innovation.”
