Yggdrasil Gaming Announces New Slot As Part Of HTML5 Roll Out

Malta based game developer Yggdrasil Gaming has announced the launch of a new online slot – The Dark Joker Rizes – as part of their rollout of a new technology framework – HTML5 – that they hope will allow them to gain greater coverage and exposure for their online gaming products.


HTML5 technology is slowly starting to creep its way into the world of online slot gaming, and it has the potential to make major waves for game developers, their customers, and their players.

Previously game developers would have to create separate applications for games for the various mobile device operating systems that are on the market, such as Android, iOS and Windows.

This need to create multiple versions of games was not only labour intensive, but quite often cost prohibitive, and as such most games would only see a partial releases across the many platforms available to players, and in most cases at a date sometime after the game was originally released for the desktop platform.

With the up rise in mobile gaming set to become a major factor in the online casino world, this issue of multiple platforms has become a concern, but an answer looks to of been found with the use of HTML5 technology.

By utilising HTML5 technology the multiple operating systems issue can become redundant, as gamers can bypass it simply by playing the games from their internet browsers on their mobile devices, and therefore the need for device specific apps can be done away with largely altogether.

An example in case is this latest release from Yggdrasil, The Dark Joker Rizes, which will be released simultaneously for both desktop and mobile devices.

The Dark Joker Rizes

The Dark Joker Rizes is a 5 reel 10 payline slot which is a sequel to another Yggdrasil title – Jokerizer.

The game has taken advantage of its newly implemented HTML5 framework by utilising the well rendered graphics that are afforded by this technology.

Gaming elements in the Dark Joker Rizes for players to enjoy include Bonus Re-Spins, Guaranteed Jokers, Mystery Wins and Super Bets.
