Online game provider Yggdrasil has recently announced that it will provide all members of its YG Masters program with access to its proprietary game mechanics to help them enhance player engagement and retention. The YG Masters Program is part of the developer’s publishing arm that was launched early this year. The program aims to aid established game providers as well as game makers with the potential to make a name in the gaming industry by providing them with its proprietary equipment and solutions to make their content even more appealing to Kiwi players. All members of Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program will now enjoy access to the provider’s in-house built mechanics including MultiMAX, Gigablox, and Splitz. New Zealand punters can expect to find these in online casino pokies from YG Masters studios.
The three mechanics mentioned above were only introduced this year and have since enjoyed much success, gaining huge popularity across and beyond Oceania through Yggdrasil’s latest releases.
For those Kiwi punters who have been lucky to play the Lucky Neko and Hades, pokies have enjoyed the first-hand experience with the Gigablox that offers huge symbols that appear on the reels to earn you some lucrative wins when stacked. Yggdrasil incorporated Splitz into Syncronite, Neon Rush, and Temple Stacks. It splits mystery symbols all over the reels to provide more ways to win as well as scatter symbols, longer lines, or even bigger clusters. The MultiMAX experience is brought to you via Yggdrasil’s Multifly pokie. It helps accumulate multipliers across the reels to offer cascading wins.
DreamTech Gaming and Bang Bang games are some of the existing YG Masters partners to pen a deal with Yggdrasil for its mechanics and both have set out to use the mechanics on their new next year releases. YG Masters allows its partners to craft and provide gaming content using Yggdrasil’s Gati Technology which is a regulatory-ready development toolkit. The technology enables game providers and studios to provide standardized technology to develop and distribute their games across the globe.
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Partner Program at Yggdrasil, admits that the competition in the online pokie market is stiff, and using “recognized and successful” mechanics is the catalyst to motivate players and improve game performance. He proceeded to say that their in-house mechanics have proved to be a revelation to the extent that they had to “recalibrate what successful releases look like.”
Exclusive releases incorporating the new mechanics are set to be revealed in 2021 and Mr. McCarthy expressed his thrill for being able to help their partners grow and widen their offering while delivering on their shared vision.
2021 looks to be a promising year for Kiwi punters looking for a fun and lucrative NZ online casino gaming experience which is partly thanks to Yggdrasil’s decision to provide all members of its YG Masters program with access to its proprietary game mechanics. This will enhance the game experience and player retention. Yggdrasil continues to cement its name as one of the leading game providers in the game today.
