Facts about Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil is a relatively young company that was founded in 2013. When it was founded, the company had Fredrik Elmqvist as leader, who had previously been at NetEnt. The game developer started by releasing Lotto games and after that they began launching good quality slots and video slots. This has led to the company being very popular in the gaming market.
The company is rather small compared to, for example, NetEnt and Microgaming. Yggdrasil only has 25 employees, although the small staff size is not noticeable considering the pace in which they are releasing games, and they have multiple offices around Europe.
