Yggdrasil reimagines Beauty and the Beast

2 March 2017
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Yggdrasil Gaming's latest slot, Beauty & the Beast, transports players to a mystical wonderland, bringing to life a classic fairy tale with stunning visuals and an immersive soundscape.

Haunting characters including the Butler, the Chef and the Maid help players improve on their winnings, each with their own respective features – Nudge Reels, Synced Reels and Random Wilds. In Free Spins mode, one of the three features is always active to bring players bigger wins.

The highlight of the title is the Golden Bet feature, which allows players to increase their chance of hitting the Free Spins more often in the base game, as well as unlocking more features in the Free Spin mode.

Head of Gaming at Yggdrasil Gaming, Jonas Strandman, said, "Beauty and the Beast summons the romance of the legendary fairy tale in what is one of our most beautiful games to date.

"With stunning visuals and effects, the player will feel a part of the story and love the gameplay. Enhanced by Golden Bet, the player will have the choice to alter the reward structure to their preference.

"The story aligns to what makes our casino games so enjoyable, with our beauty taking a chance and being handsomely rewarded for it."

Like all of Yggdrasil's slots, Beauty and the Beast is built on its bespoke HTML5 cross-channel platform, iSENSE 2.0.

Yggdrasil's portfolio of slots contains a wide range of popular casino games, including Vikings Go Berzerk, Alchymedes and Joker Millions Progressive.

Its collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOST, hands operators the power to run several features designed to boost customer engagement and retention, including innovative in-game missions, leader boards and raffle engines.

Meanwhile, its BRAG tool allows customers to watch replays of winning spins and share them with friends and fans on social channels.

Yggdrasil was recently named Innovator of the Year at the 2017 International Gaming Awards, the latest in a growing list of accolades including Slot Provider of the Year at the 2016 EGR B2B Awards.
