Yggdrasil Gaming, the gaming software supplier owned by Sweden's Cherry, has signed a licensing agreement to provide a range of content for Malta-licensed casino operator Vera&John.

Yggdrasil will provide Vera&John with its entire product portfolio, comprising a selection of lottery and instant win games, keno, progressive jackpots as well as mobile and online scratchcards.

The supplier will also aid Vera&John’s expansion into emerging Asian markets, providing games customised with Asian language and currency options.

The first content will launch on Verajohn.com, the Spanish-facing Verajuan.com and Asian-facing Vera888.com at the end of the month. Initially, the games will go live at a rate of one a month, with this increasing as the partnership continues.

Yggdrasil chief executive Fredrik Elmqvist said he was delighted to have secured the operator as the company’s latest partner, describing them as “a rapidly growing, agile business.”

“[Together] we make a great team,” Elmqvist explained. “Not only will they be able to access our entire content library and localised games, they will also be able to take advantage of the new games we are designing now and preparing to launch in the future.”

Vera&John director Nicolas Lund said Yggdrasil’s content would not only enhance its current offering, but also expand the breadth of the offering with the addition of lottery and keno products.

“We have great expectations for the product in both our core European and Asian markets, where the launch is greatly anticipated,” Lund added.

The deal follows Vera&John's partnership with Bally Technologies, announced in December. The companies agreed a three-year deal that will see Bally provide the operator with a range of online and mobile games.
