Yggdrasil plotting casino revamp with Sonya Blackjack

A reinvention of casino has been promised by Yggdrasil Gaming, as the game developer unveils its first ever table game ‘Sonya Blackjack’.

Vowing that the product “will open extensive cross-selling possibilities for operators,” Sonya Blackjack features intuitive gameplay and a motion capture 3D dealer, with the aim of creating “the ultimate immersive playing environment”.

The product allows operators full customisation, including both the dealer and wider casino environment, whilst alternatively an option for a standard logo package could appeal, with it also detailed that operators will be able to go live with a custom branded skin from launch.

Sonya Blackjack offers all standard options including insurance, even money, split, double and double after split, in addition to a selection of special features unique to the title.

Up to three players can sit a single table, while more have the option to stand, with users also able to watch others, including seeing how much they are betting and winning.

Krzysztof Opałka, Yggdrasil CPO, commented: “Yggdrasil has a track record of ripping up the rulebook to deliver products that reinvent online casino and Sonya Blackjack is no different. We’ve witnessed unprecedented interest in the product since we first introduced it at ICE.

“Never before has a table game product been so customisable. With our 3D modelling, operators have unlimited opportunities to create brand-and event-specific environments, at a significantly lower cost than with live dealer.

“We look forward to seeing Sonya in action and will continue to drive forward the table games vertical over the coming months, in much the same way we have with slots.”

Sonya Blackjack is built on Yggdrasil’s proprietary tech platform REDUX that combines the best aspects of both live and RNG casino, using motion capture technology to model the movements of the dealer.
