This week the gaming provider Yggdrasil launched its latest title called Double Dragons. The game possesses a number of unique features and a revolutionary design. To commemorate this new slot CasinoGrounds takes a look at another innovative concept from the Scandinavian provider – Super Free Spins.
When launched, Super Free Spins were a ground-breaking promotional tool. As Standard free spins are the most common promotion in online slots, Yggdrasil came up with a new free spins distribution method.
- When asked about the concept Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO of Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “Standard free spins are the most common promotion in online slots, but they have become pretty boring for players. There’s nothing new and often they don’t win anything which is why we have launched Super Free Spins.
Super Free Spins allows casinos to hand out an infinite number of free spins to different player segments. The feature of course, also includes a number of stop criteria like single big wins or hitting certain game features in a slot game, like the freespin bonus feature.
The player will get to spin until he\she lands one of these stop criteria, after which the super free spins will be deactivated and the player will collect the wins made until that point. This means that the player’s goal it to actually not hit a bonus feature as that would automatically end the free spins. Making multiple small wins in the base game is the best way to maximize the profitability potential of Super Free Spins. Hypothetically a lucky player can keep spinning an infinite amount of free spins without ever hitting the bonus feature but just making small wining combos and collecting the wins.
Yggdrasil’s games are generally higher variance than the rest of the market, and this new concept means that operators can provide a unique free spins function on high variance games, catering for all types of players, including high rollers.
- Fredrik Elmqvist: “Our games are a far cry from many of the vanilla high hit frequency, low variance slots out there. We create higher variance content which, combined with our Infinite API™ for gamification, enables various kinds of Super Free Spins and also new innovative event trigger tools for real money players. This means our partners can significantly increase engagement with their players and differentiate their offering.
Super Free Spins are an excellent example of Yggdrasil’s innovative spirit. An experiment that certainly paid off, we can only wait and see what other ingenious ideas the provider has in store for the future.
