Yggdrasil, a developer and publisher of online casino games, announced the launch of the first YG Masters online slot from Bang Bang Games, a young iGaming studio, on Monday.
As part of its inclusion in the Yggdrasil Masters program, Ancient Eclipse uses Yggdrasil’s GATI technology.
Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program
Bang Bang Games, established in 2020 by a community of online gambling industry veterans, aims to build online slots with highly entertaining yet basic mechanics. In June 2020, the studio became a member of Yggdrasil’s YG Masters program.
The program, which began a few years ago, has grown in popularity, with new studios joining the ranks on a regular basis. It allows independent iGaming content creators to use Yggdrasil’s technologies and its ever-growing network of global operator partners to create, produce, and distribute their products.
The GATI technology described earlier is an important part of YG Masters. In a nutshell, GATI is a preconfigured and regulation-ready game development toolkit that allows studios to plan, make, and produce their games anywhere in the world using standardised technologies.
It also enables casino game developers to expand the scope of their content and discover new revenue streams by using a single structured gui.
Ancient Eclipse is a 5×4 slot from Bang Bang Games that transports players into a mystical adventure where they can unleash the strength of the eclipse and attempt to win enticing ancient prizes.
To unlock major wins, players must land all Eclipse icons. When Moon symbols appear on the reels, they turn into unique Golden Sun Frames that remain on the reels until an Eclipse occurs.
When a Moon sign arrives in a Golden Sun Frame, the Eclipse is caused. The Sun Frames on the reels transform into Wilds when the function is allowed. The Eclipse can be retriggered, and each new Eclipse adds a 1x multiplier to the previous one.
When three Warrior scatter symbols appear on the reels, the game triggers the Sticky Suns Free Spins mode. Even after an Eclipse is caused during Free Spins, all Sun Frames remain sticky in the mode. Any time a Moon sign appears, it adds a new Sun Frame and gives you an extra spin.
‘Continues to drive innovative content to market’
Yggdrasil Head of Partner Programs Stuart McCarthy commented on the recently launched game, saying that their YG Masters software “continues to drive innovative content to market, as evident in Bang Bang Games’ landmark inaugural title, Ancient Eclipse.”
Bang Bang Games Managing Director Frank McPolin said that they are excited to launch their first game as a Yggdrasil Masters partner, Ancient Eclipse, and that they could not be more pleased with the game’s “thrilling theme, lucrative Free Spins mode, and an artfully crafted atmosphere,” and that they are looking forward to it joining Yggdrasil’s partner network and reaching players from all over the world.
