Yggdrasil wins Innovator of the Year Award at IGA 2023

The supplier has been distinguished for its contributions to the iGaming industry and consistent delivery on excellent content across the board

Yggdrasil was shortlisted and awarded competing against dozens of other worthwhile companies who vied for the same distinction at the International Gaming Awards 2023.

Seven Innovation Awards for Yggdrasil So Far

The ceremony was held at the Savoy Hotel in London, reuniting the very best providers and operators from the entire spectrum of the gambling industry, including online and land-based experts.

Yggdrasil is particularly happy with the recognition as it is awarded to companies that have been delivering exceptional performance and galvanizing industry-wide improvements in the 12 months leading up to the ceremony.

Yggdrasil’s particular contributions in the sector have to specifically do with the Game Engagement Mechanics (GEMs) and YG Masters program. The studio has focused entirely on delivering immersive and innovative content that has struck home with global audiences, which is another reason why the distinction has gone to the company.

Yggdrasil CEO Björn Krantz was pleased with the development and he hailed it as an important achievement, and a great way to start the year, and ICE 2023. It’s the seventh innovation award that the team had received over the years, Krantz added.

“The iGaming landscape continues to change at a rapid pace and this award is yet further proof that Yggdrasil continues to disrupt the industry with leading innovations,” the executive wrapped up.

Yggdrasil has been actively expanding its portfolio and geographical reach in the meantime. The company confirmed that it has been cleared to launch in Buenos Aires in January and it has been also adding to its content portfolio with games such as Neon Villains DoubleMax and Lucky Mushrooms Sequel.
