All Star Knockout unveiled as latest YG Masters smash hit
Second Northern Lights title in industry-leading distribution partnership programme
Yggdrasil, the innovative online gaming solutions provider, has released All Star Knockout in association with partner studio Northern Lights, the latest in the supplier’s market-leading global content distribution initiative, YG Masters.
The 5×4 reel video slot features 20 paylines and an innovative Award Board, which activates the All Star Knockout Bonus.
The Award Board has five boxes with spots for eight stars to collect as they randomly land on the reels. When a player starts a game session, 12 bonus stars are randomly awarded and populate the board. If one or more box is filled with stars, the bonus round is triggered.
During the bonus feature, players are given an initial five free spins, with an additional two free spins awarded for every box of the board that is filled during the round. When the feature is triggered, a multiplier is selected and applies to all wins.
Andrew Goodale, CEO of Northern Lights, said: “All Star Knockout is our latest creation via the YG Masters initiative and offers a colourful and exciting take on classic fruit machine symbols.
With an innovative award board bonusing system, players can easily track their progress as they strive to land the lucrative free spins feature.
“Our partnership with Yggdrasil has been hugely beneficial for us and assisted us in further growing our business. We are very excited about what the future holds.”
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Partner Strategy & Sourcing at Yggdrasil, said: “All Star Knockout is an excellent addition to our the YG Masters games portfolio and another testament to the success of this element of our business which gives us fresh and innovative content from the world’s best independent studios.
“Our YG Masters programme continues to go from strength-to-strength and the launch of our Publishing division will only cement its status as one of the leading development platforms in the industry.”
As part of the introduction of its new Publishing division earlier this year, Yggdrasil has significantly updated its market leading YG Masters programme, which was first launched in 2018. The key upgrade driver is the introduction of GATI (Game Adaptation Tools & Interface) which offers a framework to build online games and is a disruptor to the existing iGaming industry.
Partners will be able to set up and run their own YG Masters across the globe with their own studio partners based on Yggdrasil’s advanced technology, framework, systems and tools. This offers clients an opportunity beyond the traditional aggregation structure, giving them unlimited potential to scale their business and realise rapid organic growth.
