Sweden – Yggdrasil and Reflex Gaming extend partnership to target UK retail with Yggdrasil game mechanicsBy Phil - 19 December 2022
Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has signed an agreement with Reflex Gaming, an omni-channel supplier of games and machines, to introduce its high-performing Game Engagement Mechanics (GEMs) to the land-based sector for the first time.
The deal will see Reflex Gaming incorporate Yggdrasil’s GEMs to its retail games offering in the UK, available on terminals in betting shops, arcades, pubs and other recreational venues.
Reflex Gaming has been a YG Masters partner since 2020 and has released 11 online titles through the program, with a number of them featuring Yggdrasil’s proprietary GEMs, including the popular Dublin Up DoubleMax and Desperate Dawgs 2 Gigablox.
Yggdrasil’s successful GEMs portfolio now consists of Gigablox, MultiMax, GigaRise, Splitz, FastPot5 and DoubleMax, as well as recently introduced WildFight and DuoMax.
The partnership extension will see the two companies enhance capabilities as Yggdrasil’s GEMs make their land-based debut and Reflex Gaming can offer its retail customers engaging and proven mechanics from the online channel.
Founded in 2004, Reflex Gaming is highly regarded in the industry as the largest independent machine supplier in the UK with a comprehensive portfolio of in-house IP. This includes some of the most popular digital land-based games content in the UK and the Netherlands with more than 4,500 digital machines connected to its Slingshot platform.
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Strengthening our partnership with Reflex Gaming to bring our GEMs to the land-based space is a great milestone for us.
“We have already had great success together, releasing a number of high-performing online titles to players and we are thrilled to now take this to the retail sector. This deal is testament to the strength of our GEMs and the potential it has to take the player experience to a new level.”
Mat Ingram, CPO at Reflex Gaming, said: “We are extremely pleased with what we have achieved as a YG Masters partner in the last few years, and we have been very impressed with how the GEMs have performed on our online titles.
“Bringing the mechanics to UK players of our retail content is extremely exciting for us and we believe they offer great potential also in this space and look forward to further expanding our successful collaboration.”
