Yggdrasil Gaming has outlined plans to shake up the table games vertical, when it debuts in the sector during Q1 of 2018.
Currently developing several multiplayer table games using REDUX, its in house technology, the product is also set to feature sidebets and a range of powers available to each dealer.
Blackjack is the first game set to go live, with Roulette and Baccarat to follow, while dealer characters being developed are set to feature “detailed hand movements and facial expressions” to better interact and communicate with players.
Yggdrasil CPO Krzysztof Opałka, said: “Our table games provision, starting with Blackjack, is set to break new ground in online casino gaming. The table games vertical has been fairly static in recent years. But our product’s combination of social interaction and high-end playability is unlike any other currently on the market.
“It won’t just be a single player trying to beat the house, but instead thousands of real players from all over the world, who are all able to join the game simultaneously with the aim of hitting big hands and bigger wins.
“We have a packed roadmap of innovative new games and features. Our aim is to innovate table games in a similar fashion to slots, where a constant product cycle of new variations built on familiar mechanics drives growth.”
Alongside a standard branding package, is an option for exclusive customised tables and dealers, allowing operators to tailor the game “according to their visual identity or special themes.”
The Yggdrasil table game offering is first set to go live with Vera&John and Intercasino, a part of the Jackpotjoy Group portfolio, in a beta partnership, with a view to being fully operational later this year.
Victor Olinger, Group Head of Gaming at Jackpotjoy, said: “Yggdrasil is a well known name across the industry that has become a byword for innovation in the slots sector. It is fantastic news to hear they are turning their attention to table games.
“It is a major coup to be the first operator to go live with Yggdrasil’s table games, and we look forward to bringing this exciting new product to our full customer base this year.”
