Online casino games manufacturer Yggdrasil intends to enter the regulated online gambling market in Switzerland through a recently signed content distribution agreement with one of the largest locally licensed operators.

Yggdrasil has teamed up with Grand Casino Luzern to provide online casino operator mycasino.ch with access to its gaming portfolio.

As part of a recent deal, Yggdrasil is integrating its content with the mycasino site and making its ever-growing library of games available to online casino players. The following Yggdrasil games will soon appear on the site of the Swiss operator:

  • Syncronite Splitz,
  • Hades Gigablox,
  • Valley of the Gods 2,
  • Hyperburst.

The partnership between Yggdrasil and the Swiss casino also extends to games from the fast growing portfolio of YG Masters programs. YG Masters launched earlier this year as part of Yggdrasil’s publishing arm. The program aims to empower independent casino game development studios to create, develop and distribute high quality content, as well as take advantage of Yggdrasil’s global operator partner network, advanced technology and advertising tools.

Since its launch, the program has recruited some of the most promising independent online gambling developers.

Yggdrasil’s partnership with Grand Casino Luzern marks the provider’s debut on the Swiss market. We wrote at casinoz that in the summer of 2019, online casino regulation was introduced in Switzerland. Grand Casino Luzern, one of the country’s most popular land-based casinos, was one of the first to receive a license to provide online gambling services from Swiss regulators.

The online casino brand mycasino was launched in August 2019 and is the second online casino in Switzerland. Since its introduction on the market, it has developed rapidly.

Commenting on his partnership with Grand Casino Luzern, Yggdrasil’s Director of Global Market Operations Björn Krantz said:

We are very pleased to enter Switzerland thanks to the connection with the Grand Casino Luzern.

Mr Krantz added:

Our market entry is another major achievement, demonstrating the organizational strength to deliver our business strategy and our commitment to expanding our presence in regulated markets.

The Yggdrasil spokesperson also expressed his enthusiasm for the opportunity to attract more players with their ever-growing content portfolio and added:

We are working closely with Grand Casino Luzern, planning a successful launch soon.

Wolfgang Bliem, CEO of Grand Casino Luzern, said: 

Yggrasil is a leading slot machine provider with a diverse portfolio of games that stand the test of time, as well as exciting new online casino games that never fail to impress.

Mr Blim also noted:

We are delighted to be able to offer Yggdrasil games to customers through our online casino soon and look forward to a very successful partnership with the provider.
