A look at Yggdrasil's expanded portfolio of table games with the updated version of the popular Sonya Blackjack and the launch of the all-new Lucky Blackjack.

Yggdrasil Sonya and Lucky Blackjack

Very few iGaming casino software providers have had a bigger impact on the industry over the past five years than Yggdrasil .

It has risen up the ranks in such dramatic fashion that it is now one of the most sought after labels in the business.

Now, it has expanded its library of table games with more top-quality blackjack action for customers to enjoy.

Based in Malta, Yggdrasil came into existence in 2013. It had instant success with the release of its video slot Jokerize and hasn't looked back since. Seemingly every game it has developed received praise from both industry experts and players.

Whilst best known for its collection of slots, Yggdrasil has already started to branch out into the table game niche. And, once again, it appears to have found the winning formula with its unique Sonya Blackjack game and now Lucky Blackjack.

Sonya Blackjack: A new era in casino table games

Launched in the spring of 2018, Sonya Blackjack was Yggdrasil's first table game. It makes use of its own REDUX technology to combine the worlds of RNG and live dealer blackjack.

The game has a virtual reality aura to it with Sonya being the host and the dealer.

Not content with standing still, Yggdrasil has introduced an updated version of Sonya Blackjack which now includes a variety of side bets. Also packaged into the new version are features such as pre-decision betting and faster animations to speed up the pace of a game to that which you would be used to in a real-life casino.

Lucky Blackjack is launched

Sonya now has a partner and her name is Lucky. This game is adorned with an Irish theme and it gets its name from the Lucky Lucky and Lucky Ladies side bets it offers.

Like Sonya Blackjack, this is a multi-player game, with up to three players able to join the table at any one time.

Lucky Blackjack offers a picture-in-picture feature, which shows highlights of a player's winning hand in HD quality video.

Marcus Honney, the head of table games development at Yggdrasil believes this latest title. The upgraded Sonya Blackjack are the most engaging, immerse titles available on the market with them offering an unprecedented level of player engagement other traditional RNG games.


Yggdrasil is rapidly becoming one of the very best games suppliers around, and if it continues to bring quality titles like this to the casino, we will soon be mentioning it in the same breath as Playtech, Microgaming and NetEnt.

Both of these blackjack variants are exquisite. They are the closest thing to live dealer games you will find. As technology advances yet further, expect to see more improvements follow.

Could this be the end of the traditional RNG variations? Only time will tell, but the future is certainly looking bright for Yggdrasil.
