Home » Yggdrasil names Bjorn Krantz new CEO; launches new online slot Let It Slide via YG Masters partner Jade Rabbit

Sandwiched between the announcement of its new CEO and its IGA RNG Casino Provider of the Year award, Yggdrasil has launched the fourth contribution from YG Masters partner studio Jade Rabbit. The new slot title, Let It Slide, transports players to the northern lands where under the mystical glow of the Aurora Borealis they search for hidden treasures including a max win of 12,000x the bet!

Claiming those riches won’t be easy though, as mysterious wild animal totems keep watch over players who are brave enough to step into this magical world, but players will have help along the way from the game’s three powerful features including Free Spins, Let It Slide and Frozen Frames.

Paytable and gameplay:

Spiraling polar lights and large snow-covered spruce trees serve as the backdrop for this super-high volatility, 5-reel, 6-row video slot with an RTP of 96.4 percent across 20 paylines via a pays both ways mechanic.

Let It Slide pays out when players hit 3-6 symbol combinations of moose, bear, wolf, cat, hare, and diamond, club, spade and heart card icons, with base game wins ranging from x0.2 the bet, up to x10 the bet for landing six moose.

Frozen acorns:

During gameplay, you’ll want to be aware of the giant tree logs that appear on the first and last reel, as they release an infinite number of special frozen acorns that slide across the frozen surface to help create wins.

It is possible to make the multipliers continue to grow by bouncing the acorn off the huge logs which continues the respins sequence. Furthermore, landing two tree logs at the same time on the reels activates the bonus round where free spins continue until there are no longer any sliding acorns on the ice.

The GATI-powered game is jam-packed with a variety of wild symbols – Stacked Wilds, Sliding Wilds & Frozen Wilds – that help players get closer to the €1,787,400 maximum win.

Action-packed gameplay:

Commenting on what is sure to be a hit, Roger Admeus, Managing Director for Jade Rabbit Studio, said…

“Let It Slide packs plenty of wilds into a fun-filled hit, combining a pays both ways mechanic with a potentially unlimited bonus round for an action-packed icy adventure!”

As mentioned, the new release is the fourth addition to the YG Masters portfolio from Jade Rabbit, following the Malta-based slots studio’s previously launched Steam Spin, Jambo Cash and Word of Thoth.

New CEO:

More recently, Yggdrasil announced that its former Chief of Global Market Operations, Björn Krantz (pictured), has been handed the helm of the global iGaming publisher from its founder Fredrik Elmqvist.

Effective April 21st, 2022, the new Chief Executive Officer will join the Swedish company’s senior management team in leading the business into its next “growth and globalisation phase.”

Krantz reportedly has more than 12 years of C-level industry experience having spent a decade with NetEnt in various executive roles, before signing with Yggdrasil as Head of Publishing Division in January 2020.

The right time:

Commenting on the appointment, the pioneering Elmqvist, said…

“Björn is well known to the industry as his delivery track record is amazing and he has been a successful executive leader in rapid global growth environments for a very long time. In the past two years, Björn has been heavily involved in shaping and building Yggdrasil’s global market operations, as well as being a key contributor to the company’s growth strategy and execution planning.”
