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.
