Jonas Strandman, Senior Product Strategist at Yggdrasil, talks us through the launch of Dr Fortuno – the company’s first cross vertical title.
Yggdrasil, the innovative online gaming solution provider, has unveiled one of 2019’s flagship game titles, Dr Fortuno. The game revolves around the titular character, the charismatic leader of a travelling freak show who ventures lands far and wide, inviting players to enter his secretive and rewarding world. Dr Fortuno is Yggdrasil’s first cross-vertical title and is available both as a slot game and a blackjack table game. Both games feature the same cross-vertical jackpot giving players more chances to win huge sums every day.
The cross-vertical nature of the game also gives operators a prime opportunity to cross-sell players across both slots and table games, using a character and game mechanics that players know and trust. The jackpot is highly customizable, allowing operators to adjust it to their unique business needs. The game also features a ‘Wheel of Fortuno’ special feature, which triggers when a nudging wild leads to a win. The more wilds a player has, the more spins they get.
If three bonus symbols hit the reels at the same time, they are transported to Dr Fortuno’s awe-inspiring free spins round. Each round begins with a raffle, where players draw several features based on the number of bonus symbols they have previously landed, making each round unique.
Also included in the Dr Fortuno catalogue of games is Yggdrasil’s latest table game release, Dr Fortuno Blackjack.
The carnival ringmaster brings a mystical flair to the classic casino game. Alongside offering a fast-flowing online and mobile blackjack experience, which can be shared by up to 5 players. Dr Fortuno Blackjack also offers an exciting new bonus bet feature, where players can bet on the dealer drawing a flush, keeping the excitement alive for players until the end of the round, even if they have gone bust.
This triggers a bonus game, and rewards players with a marvellous multiplier, and a chance to win the must-go daily jackpot, which is shared across the Dr Fortuno universe, including the slot game.
Dr Fortuno keeps players entertained through the game, and this blackjack experience is like no other you will ever experience.
Jonas Strandman, Senior Product Strategist at Yggdrasil, said: “There is a lot going on in the Dr Fortuno Slot! Nudging wilds, bonus wheel, free spins and a jackpot! The bonus wheel happens often enough to keep the entertainment up, while the free spins can dish out huge wins with the right combinations.
“Dr Fortuno Blackjack offers the unique chance to win a jackpot while playing regular blackjack. The shared jackpot pool with the slot ensures the jackpot consistently reaches attractive values.
The chance for a big jackpot, the entertaining animations and the bonus game that triggers from time to time elevates the experience of blackjack in a way we have never seen before.”
The Doctor, joined by his terrifying troupe of society oddballs, allows players to enter his realm or blackjack table of dreams and curiosities to experience things beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.
Nicknamed the ‘King in Yellow’, Dr Fortuno is often heard whispering his catchphrase, ‘By the pricking one of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes!”.
