Yggdrasil launches game-changing Jungle Books slot


Yggdrasil Gaming has launched its biggest and most ambitious game to date, Jungle Books, alongside a €50,000 network tournament campaign and a new, ground-breaking game mechanic.

Jungle Books, which was first announced at ICE in February where it provided the theme for the Yggdrasil stand, takes players on a journey through the jungle inspired by the Rudyard Kipling classic.

The game introduces the new Fusion Realms mechanic, which seamlessly mixes different reel structures and features into a single game.

This allows five characters to roam through different jungle realms with their own individual feature combinations and reel sets. Each character hosts a realm where both of their features are active, and other characters can join these realms as guests, adding one of their features for especially lucrative triple feature combinations.

The game features three different reel sets, five different characters and 10 different features, which can create up to 45 possible feature combinations, making the game the biggest and most exciting in Yggdrasil’s history.

Jungle Books launches with a €50,000 network tournament campaign between September 22 – October 1, which is free for all operators offering the game to participate in.

The tournament will allow players to use Yggdrasil’s social sharing tool BRAG, enabling them to re-watch winning rounds on the tournament leaderboard and share on Facebook and Twitter.

The player finishing top of the leaderboard will win an unforgettable trip to India’s Pench and Kanha national parks – the setting of the famous Kipling stories.

Head of Slots at Yggdrasil Gaming, Jonas Strandman, said: “Jungle Books is by far our biggest production to date and throughout development we’ve been testing the boundaries of slot technology.

“The outcome is something we couldn’t be happier with. Thanks to the brand-new Fusion Realms mechanism, we’ve managed to combine five worlds into this one microcosm, a lush extravaganza of features and graphics.

“Though it has been a beast of a project, its success has only given us more energy to try to push the limits even further with our future releases.”

The Jungle Books game will be launched on Yggdrasil’s revamped HTML client framework iSENSE 2.0+, which provides the foundations for the innovative title via a high-level of optimisation and cutting-edge technology.

Jungle Books is backed by Yggdrasil’s collection of in-game promotional tools, BOOST™, which hand operators the power to run several features designed to boost customer engagement and retention, including innovative in-game Missions, leaderboards and raffle engines.

Meanwhile, its BRAG tool allows customers to watch replays of winning spins and share them with friends and fans on social channels.
