Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “It is about time Yggdrasil crossed the Rubicon as Italy is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing markets in gaming. We already had some Tier 1 operators on our books who were active in Italy, so it was a no-brainer to enter ourselves.
“We are delighted that Yggdrasil will have a presence in this exciting jurisdiction, and we are already in negotiations with some major operators. We hope to meet more at ENADA Primavera in Rimini in March, and plan to vitalize the Italian market further with proven titles and promotional concepts.”
