Malta-based slot and casino game developer, Yggdrasil Gaming, ended off February with a bang with the release of Beauty and the Beast, its latest video slot game. Based on the famous story that was first released in the 1740s, before becoming a Disney film in 1991 and an action live musical in 2017, the game combines romance and magic into one stunning slot.

Players will be familiar with the characters spinning round the reels, including Beauty and the Beast, the Butler, the Chef and the Maid. There are a range of features available, including a free spins bonus round and features associated with each of the characters – Nudge Reels, Synced Reels and Random Wilds. The Golden Bet feature; however, is the highlight of the game as it allows players to increase the size of their bet for increased chances of triggering the free spins and unlocking more features during the free spins.

“Beauty and the Beast summons the romance of the legendary fairy tale in what is one of our most beautiful games to date,” announced Jonas Strandman, head of gaming at Yggdrasil.

“With stunning visuals and effects, the player will feel a part of the story and love the game-play. Enhanced by Golden Bet, the player will have the choice to alter the reward structure to their preference.”

“The story aligns to what makes our casino games so enjoyable, with our beauty taking a chance and being handsomely rewarded for it.”

The 5 reel, 20 payline game was developed in HTML5 and was released for play on February 24 across all channels. It has joined Yggdrasil’s ever-growing portfolio of games, including popular titles such as Alchymedes, Vikings Go Berzerk and their progressive jackpot Joker Millions.
