Provider of superior online and mobile casino games, Yggdrasil, has launched Portuguese tech startup Darwin Gaming’s first title as a YG Masters partner, with Baccarat Evolution offering players an experience that emulates “real-life casino gameplay” via a Peak and Reveal feature.

Players can expect to find all of the classic elements they have come to love about the traditional card game, while at the same time giving it a “fresh and intuitive customisable interface” in addition to incredible new features.

The innovative Peak and Reveal feature allows players to simulate the physical act of revealing their cards at an actual casino by using their finger to swipe up during gameplay on a mobile device.

Playing options:

Players can choose from three individual themes, Light, Dark and Classic, each of which changes the way the game is displayed according to preferred light conditions. Also, for quicker gameplay while on the go, players can engage another option, Turbo Mode, which speeds up their hands and can be enabled and disabled at will between bets.

Yggdrasil and Darwin didn’t stop at just one new game, the YG Masters partners have also introduced Baccarat Evolution VIP. Players will find that the second iteration has the same immersive features, with the exception of the betting range, which has been increased for individuals who enjoy higher stakes gameplay.

Company statements:

In a statement in a company press release, Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, said

“We’re really excited to release this exciting new take on baccarat alongside Darwin Gaming.”

McCarthy explained that innovation within the vertical “can often prove tricky, as players enjoy traditional gameplay,” however, Baccarat Evolution is “truly fantastic” and offers a “brand new experience for those that enjoy this much-loved card game.”

Darwin Interactive’s Chief Executive Officer, Nuno Gonçalinho, also commented on the new release, stating…

“As a new and emerging studio, we’re filled with pride to be able to release Baccarat Evolution alongside Yggdrasil. We’re incredibly confident players will enjoy what this immersive baccarat title has to offer.”

YG Masters:

Founded in 2020, Darwin Gaming joined the YG Masters program in February 2021 and Baccarat Revolution is its debut release as part of the fast-growing initiative.

The developer‘s new game is powered by the Cherry AB subsidiary’s advanced Game Adaptation Tools & Interface (GATI), which enables studios and game developers to apply standardized technology to create and disburse titles globally. Both YG Masters studios and Yggdrasil’s network of operating partners in diverse, regulated iGaming markets enjoy access to the development toolkit.

The introduction follows the launch of independent developer Bang Bang Games’ latest slot title, Super Cash Drop Gigablox. The sequel to the original, which was released in July 2021, features a win potential of up to 7,024x and guarantees a Gigablox™ symbol on every spin.
