Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has unveiled Johnan Legendarian, its latest YG Masters game with Peter & Sons.

The epic adventure sees the titular hero battle beasts on the reels in search of lost cities and the riches that fill them. The 5×3, 10 payline game offers high volatility as well as two types of free spin modes.

Free spins are triggered by landing three or more bonus symbols, which award 10 free spins. At the start of this mode, a random symbol is selected which can expand to cover the whole reel if a win is awarded, as well as potentially granting additional prizes. During the bonus round, three scatters landing can unlock additional expanding symbols, while also resetting the spins count to 10.

Super free spins are triggered as gameplay develops, with two or more bonus symbols landing also awarding points to a progress bar. When the bar reaches 770 points, the super mode is activated. When retriggered it awards 10 extra free spins, while also granting up to eight additional expanding symbols. Up to nine symbols in total can expand on any spin.

Johnan Legendarian is the first Peter & Sons game through the YG Masters program, with the studio recently agreeing to implement Yggdrasil’s successful Gigablox™ mechanic in upcoming titles through the GEM offering as well.

This is the latest YG Masters release marking the fifth game released through the program this month. The YG Masters program has seen significant growth over the last 12 months with several unique studios joining as partners.

The game is developed through Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art GATI technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Stuart McCarthy, Head of Partner Programs at Yggdrasil, said: “Each of our YG Masters partners brings something new to the table and we’re thrilled to launch the first Peter & Sons title, Johnan Legendarian, through the initiative.

“With a collaborative process and GATI making the entire development pathway seamless, our members are able to effortlessly create fantastic products.”

Yann Bautista, Business Development Manager at Peter & Sons, said: “We’re delighted to release our first adventure game through YG Masters. With an artfully crafted environment, beautiful visuals, high volatility and massive wins of up to 5,000x, we can’t wait for players to aid our hero on his quest for lifechanging wealth.”

Massive News for the Esports Industry with Potential Inclusion in the Commonwealth Games

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Esports is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and there’s no limit to how big it could become. It’s already breached a valuation of $1 billion, and it’s expected to grow to $13.05 billion by 2025.

One of the greatest indicators that competitive gaming is going mainstream is the fact that it has been recognised by the Commonwealth Games. Indeed, it is expected to be included when the event takes place in Victoria in 2026.

Test Run Has Already Taken Place

A few years ago, the thought of seeing Esports at the Commonwealth Games would have been laughable. Now, it is a realistic prospect. It was recently reported that a dry run of the Commonwealth Esports Championships was held in Birmingham, England, at the 2022 Commonwealth Games to see if this type of competitive action could be included as an official event in 2026. It went well and garnered positive feedback from the people involved.

The Victoria edition of the Commonwealth Games is set to take place in 2026, with 16 sports already confirmed. However, the organisers are hoping to add more to the schedule with Esports being strongly considered. Competitive gaming has proven to be a popular spectator sport, with more people tuning in to watch it every year. By 2026, there could be close to a billion people watching Esports, meaning that it would be a popular inclusion at a major event.

Esports has been referred to as the “new sporting frontier,” and it wouldn’t be surprising to see it gaining even more credibility in the next decade. Even the world’s biggest traditional sports had to start somewhere. Football and cricket are now well-established and loved the world over, and there’s nothing stopping Esports from following a similar trajectory.

How Will This Affect Related Industries?

With the Commonwealth Games set to take place in Australia next time, the country could be in a prime position to capitalise on the inclusion of Esports. Part of the success of competitive gaming up to this point has been thanks to related industries pushing it, along with big name companies striking sponsorship deals. Australian companies, therefore, will most certainly seek to capitalise in 2026.

The betting industry was built around traditional sports, and it is now a behemoth industry around the world. In Australia, online betting is so popular that there are countless sites vying for bettors’ attention. Indeed, there are so many to sift through that people turn to comparison sites that list the best ones based on their offers and ratings. Bettors simply scroll through and then click a link to be taken directly to a site.

Many of these online sportsbooks are already offering eSports betting, and the number of markets available is only set to rise in the future. When the Commonwealth Games rolls around, betting sites could benefit from special offers. They may also start to have a greater focus on Esports, thus drawing more attention to the competitive gaming industry.

Esports at the Commonwealth Games isn’t just huge news for the industry itself, but it’s a great move for related industries. Australian companies are set to benefit in 2026, with the betting industry being in a particularly strong position to take advantage.
