Sonya Blackjack by Yggdrasil Will Be the First 3D Table Game
Sonya Blackjack will be first of a series of revolutionary Yggdrasil table games. We’ve mentioned earlier that this casino software provider decided to enter table games vertical. Their ideas seem to be very exciting – creating 3D casino environment with virtual dealers. Players won’t have to wait for too long before they can try one of these innovative games as Sonya Blackjack’s release is scheduled this year. Then the developer plans to launch Roulette and Baccarat.
Today players can either choose live casino rooms or regular online table games. Yggdrasil will soon change that. They are creating a virtual world with motion characters and you can rest assured that the studio will deliver highest quality visuals.
First to go live is Sonya Blackjack. Sonya is a virtual dealer with her own personality. This red haired lady looks like one of Yggdrasil’s slot characters. You won’t necessarily meet the same Sonja in all casinos powered by Yggdrasil. The developer offers variety of customizations. She can have a lot of different looks and even work in different casino environments.
Marcus Honney, Head of Table Games at the company, told at ICE that they aren’t going to reinvent the game itself. So, you can expect traditional blackjack rules. He also pointed that there are Sonya’s friends they plan to launch, and one of them is the Viking.
Sonya Blackjack is going to be a multiplayer game and customers will be able to play with each other. The developer also plans to introduce booking feature after a while. Thanks to this feature, a group of players who want to enjoy the game together will be allowed to book a table. This would be a great alternative for friends to have a great time.
The studio will use its in-house REDUX technology to create revolutionary games. Table games sector has long been overlooked by top developers as they were busy developing mainly video slots. Today two leading studios plan to reshape this industry. Yggdrasil will introduce 3D world with virtual characters, while NetEnt has already launched Live Beyond Live roulette that features live dealers in a 3D Mr Green casino.
It’s too early to compare the two products, since Sonya Blackjack isn’t available for now. But what makes Yggdrasil’s upcoming table games feel more exciting than NetEnt’s Live Beyond Live is the availability of multiple promotional tools. Operators willing to add some extra thrill to players’ table game experience will be able to offer various Missions, Tournaments and Cash Races.
Yggdrasil has first introduced their table games at ICE Totally Gaming this year. Based on what the company has shown so far, Sonya Blackjack and other 3D table games will offer much more thrilling experience. Striking animation and great characters will most probably attract a lot more players. We can’t wait to see this new game in casinos.
