Back Yggdrasil Releases WildPops in Partnership with AvatarUX

A renowned Swedish game studio and Cherry AB subsidiary, Yggdrasil Gaming Ltd, is celebrating another successful launch in partnership with AvatarUX, one of the first official developers to join the booming YG Masters program.

The studio’s latest fun-filled slot is called WildPops and its mechanics are based on innovative online gaming solutions such as the ‘pays both ways’ grid, better known as PopWins. This system allows all winning symbols to ‘pop’ and get replaced with two new images, thus expanding every cascading win on a single spin and amplifying the game’s potential.

A Multiplier for Every 7th Pop

One of the finest traits of PopWins is its volatility level, as a multiplier is added for every seventh Pop. This function enables a single spin to turn into colossal wins, especially if the Pops continue to appear and increase the grid size. In addition, if three wins occur in a row, two random wilds will be triggered, leading to even more Pops in the end.

Ultimately, the reels can expand up to seven columns high, triggering the bonus round and awarding three extra lives to players. There is also a special treat involved in this round, consuming an extra life and providing a re-spin whenever a non-win screen ends the multiplier. However, the boost will remain during the entire spin and deliver a solid prize.

WildPops is a high volatility game with an RTP of 96.8% and a mediocre bet level range, starting with just $0.20 per spin. The maximum potential bet is $50, leading to optimal exposure of 17,707 coins in a single rotation. The initial grid comes with 486 paylines.

Head of partner strategy and sourcing at Yggdrasil, Stuart McCarthy commented about the latest portfolio expansion with AvatarUX:

“WildPops™ is a fun-filled new addition to the Yggdrasil slot offering and will appeal to a wide demographic of players. Our YG Masters studios continue to push the boundaries of innovation and AvatarUX is no different with its fascinating graphics and thrilling PopWins™ mechanic which has proven very popular with players.”

Going from Strength to Strength

In the last period, Yggdrasil Gaming has intensified its cooperation efforts with YG Masters studios, as many development companies decided to utilize its GATI system and accelerate global growth. Among such partners is DreamTech Gaming, who signed an exclusive deal with the provider in June 2020. On a side note, new software specialists are also continuously joining the YG Masters program, and Skyrocket Entertainment is one of the company’s latest content distributors.

Managing director at AvatarUX, Marcus Honney, has noticed this positive trend and shared his opinion about the studio’s latest video slot:

“Our latest PopWins™ game contains all the thrilling excitement of our feature mechanic with a fun theme and massive win potential. Any spin can get the Popping started and give players thrilling experiences. Our partnership with Yggdrasil continues to go from strength to strength and we look forward to it growing for many years.”

At the end of June, Yggdrasil lined up another impressive release Lucky Neko with Gigablox mechanics, featuring traditional Japanese dolls, 6x4 layout and 40 fixed ways to win. It is available with all partnering operators.
