Game development studio Yggdrasil Gaming has agreed a deal to launch its games with Denmark's former monopoly operator Danske Spil.

The supplier's games will go live on the GVC-powered during the first quarter of next year, as well as being rolled out on GVC's own brand as part of the agreement.

The operators' players will have access to popular Yggdrasil titles including recent release Vikings Go Berzerk, as well as its collection of in-game promotional tools and social sharing tool Brag.

"Our entry into Denmark has been marked with significant interest in Yggdrasil content from operators looking to improve their gaming portfolios," said Yggdrasil CEO Fredrik Elmqvist. "This latest deal to go live on Danske Spil and via GVC brings our games to players with two of Denmark’s most popular brands."

GVC's chief product officer Liron Snir said that Yggdrasil games were already enjoyed by players across the Nordics and beyond, so it was "fantastic" to bring them to its customers in Denmark's regulated market.

"Denmark is an extremely competitive market, so Yggdrasil's high-quality titles and industry-first promotional tools will give both our brands and our B2B partners a powerful edge," he said.

Danske Licens Spil's head of product Søren Schneider added: "Danske Spil is always looking to better serve our player base, and we are certain that Yggdrasil games will prove extremely popular.

"Yggdrasil is a well-respected name within gaming, and it is a pleasure to work alongside them to strengthen the Danske Spil offering."
