Yggdrasil and AvatarUX burst into action with new Popwins game CherryPop

| By Aaron Noy

Yggdrasil, the innovative online gaming solutions provider, has partnered with AvatarUX for the newest Popwins title, CherryPop, the latest game to be produced through the supplier’s YG Masters programme.

Utilising AvatarUX’s unique Popwins mechanic, the 5×3, pays-both-ways title can see winning spins expand the reels up to a full 5×9 reel, with each winning symbol popping to reveal two more in a tumbling wins style of gameplay.

To trigger the free spins mode, players must fully unlock all reels through popping wins, before unlocking three levels of the free spins mode, with higher multipliers and more reels possible. Players also have the opportunity to gamble their free spins, potentially winning more, using the gamble wheel. In certain jurisdictions, players can also go straight to the free spins round with the buy bonus button.

CherryPop has been configured using Yggdrasil’s pioneering GATI technology, which is used by all YG Masters partners, allowing developers to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to create cutting edge content.

Rapid distribution across Yggdrasil’s entire distribution network enables all YG Masters partners to rapidly scale and accelerate their global growth strategies.

Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programmes at Yggdrasil, said: “We’re thrilled to be releasing our third title with AvatarUX. With their innovative Popwins mechanic proving a real industry hit, we’re really excited to launch CherryPop to the market.

“Our YG Masters programme continues to go from strength to strength and our partnerships have never been stronger with members.”

Marcus Honney, managing director at AvatarUX, said: “CherryPop takes our mechanic and adds a thrilling theme with impressive win potential, and we can’t wait to see how it is received by operator partners across the globe.

“Since joining the YG Masters programme, we’ve been able to focus purely on our game design which has led to our Popwins titles becoming very popular throughout Yggdrasil’s distribution network. The end-to-end integration through GATI has been effortless, with a record fast implementation. GATI is the studio developers’ dream.”
