Yggdrasil’s First RNG Table Game Sonya Blackjack Goes Live
Yggdrasil’s this year’s ICE-introduced game starts to become a reality for casino players as the company has finally launched their first-ever innovative RNG table game: Sonya Blackjack. Boasting with a multiplayer mode, ground-breaking motion capture and a fully-customisable interface, the game promises to “reinvent casino” and give the company a strong foothold in the table games vertical over the coming months.
The first Random Number Generator-powered Yggdrasil table game is Sonya Blackjack. It’s called Sonya because unlike standard table games of this type, there’s a 3D-rendered dealer who’s meant to create a more intimate and immersive playing environment, similar to Betsoft’s single-player Poker3 Heads Up Hold’em. As we briefly covered in our earlier post, this is made possible thanks to the developer’s proprietary tech platform REDUX, which aims to combine the best aspects of both live and RNG casino.
In this multiplayer game, there’s room for up to three players and a spectator mode. Features like Insurance, Even Money, Split, Double and Double after Split, are part of Sonya Blackjack as well. Blackjack pays 3 to 2, the dealer must stand on 17 and must draw to 16, and insurance pays 2 to 1. The RTP or the theoretical average return to player is 99.54% in the main game, and 92.86% with insurance. Full rules are also always available in the game menu.
Now, there are several different dealer characters being developed for the upcoming releases, roulette and baccarat, and each of them will be able to interact with you. Sonya Blackjack has already made its first appearance at the Jackpotjoy Group casinos like Vera&John and InterCasino because of their exclusive agreement with the developer which was signed earlier. Visit the casinos to try it for free, either on mobile or desktop, and see if you like it before playing with real money.
The operators are also given free hands to customise the games to fit their brand and also sync with Yggdrasil’s collection of in-game promotional tools like BOOST and network campaigns. The company also pointed out that the product will evolve during the year, so we may see some more changes.
So, be sure to place some bets and let us know your thoughts about your experience in the comments below and if this bridge between live and RNG table games is really necessary or not.
