Yggdrasil Gaming is a software provider that has been at the forefront of the online gaming industry for some years and their efforts have been heavily focused on the development of YGS Masters platform, a semi-open platform that allows independent studios to add their own creations to Yggdrasil’s portfolio of casino games.
The global content curation platform has received its first title in Niagara Falls video slot developed by Northern Lights, a small independent studio that was recently accepted into the program. The game features a 1930s theme and a classic fruity setup with a 3x5 slot grid and symbols that include bells, bars, sevens and cherries.
Niagara Falls slot is a mix of classic and modern video slot gameplay elements. The theme is clearly taken from the good old classic slots, with fruit symbols, bars and bells all appearing as gameplay symbols. These simple symbols offer payouts for combinations of three, four or five on a payline, with a total of 20 paylines offered by the game.
The basis for all big wins in the game are the bonus slots underneath the reels. Niagara Falls slot features a number of bonus features which are related to these special slots. The first of them is the Coin Drop Bonus, which can be triggered randomly when a bonus coin lands on reel five and makes its way into the bonus slot. Depending on the symbol in the bonus slot, the feature can trigger a multiplier bonus, stacked wilds and other bonuses.
The extra spins bonus is activated by landing Bonus Barrel symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. Five free spins are activated in this feature, with all reels showing the Wild symbol in the special slots underneath them and providing a chance for each reel to turn into a Wild Reel.
Niagara Falls also features a Cash Fall Bonus which can be triggered on any spin of the reels. When the bonus is triggered, coins fall down the reels and land in the special bonus slots under them. All coins are added into a meter which offer a chance to double the slot value and provide generous payouts.
Niagara Falls slot is the first addition to Yggdrasil’s YGS Masters program, which the company hopes will bring versatility and value to their overall gaming portfolio. The game was released on May 9th across all Yggrdasil Gaming powered online casinos and more YGS Masters products should follow in the near future.
