One of the more surprising results of the new UK Gambling Commission licensing requirements that came into force earlier this year was the decision from GoWild to pull out of the market, having long been one of the most reliable and downright exciting gaming destinations for players to enjoy games from NetEnt, Microgaming and more. Having launched in 2008, they quickly established themselves as one of the first of a new generation of casinos, where players could find the finest in virtual and live casino action from the leading developers, all with just a single account.
When legal operations in the UK required the new licence, GoWild opted to stick with its longstanding licence from the Malta Gaming Authority and left it that, effectively forcing its UK players to look elsewhere. We’ve certainly missed the casino, but the good news is that its back and, if you’re playing in the UK, it’s quite possibly better than ever!
The new casino, currently in its soft launch phase but already fully functional, has been put together with everything we know and love about the GoWild brand, but with a few subtle twists on the international site to make it even better. You just need to take a look at the featured games on the main page for some perfect examples, with UK favourites like Rainbow Riches and Rainbow Riches – Pick ‘n’ Mix being joined by some of the most played online games across the country like Starburst and Jack Hammer 2.
This does, of course, also mark the return of the Wild Welcome Package to UK shores, which we have long considered as being one of the best welcome bonuses around. The best part is that this is technically a brand-new casino experience, so even if you have played with GoWild in the past, you can head right back over and enjoy a 100% boost of up to £333 on your first deposit and bonus spins on your second and third ones too!
GoWild Brings Yggdrasil Slots to the Lobby
Even if you’re not in the UK, its still a big week to be a GoWild player with the announcement that Yggdrasil slots are landing in the lobby any day now. We frequently refer to Yggdrasil as our rising star of 2017, and their release schedule has been more than on par with those of Microgaming and NetEnt, who have set the gold standard for a number of years. From Vikings Go Berzerk and Valley of the Gods to the brand new Orient Express, the developer has had one of the most impressive years in recent memory and the fact that their games are coming to the quintessential multi-developer casino is definitely cause for celebration!
New Games from the Current Development Partners
While the new partnership with Yggdrasil ensures the addition of dozens of great games at the same time, the fact that GoWild is already partnered with some of the biggest names in gaming always guaranteed that there would be something to look forward to in December.
Fans of the Ancient Egyptian theme will be rejoicing, with BetSoft’s Legends of the Nile and iSoftBet’s Eye of the Amulet both coming our way this month, while Play’n Go, another of the rising stars of this year, will be contributing Sea Hunter to the lobby. Microgaming has the branded action covered for the month with the launch of Highlander, complete with 243 ways to win and two different wild features that play out as players split their time between the Scottish Highlands and New York City!
It’s always a great time to GoWild, and if you’re in the UK then it is time to GoWild all over again!
