They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of Nirvana is 3.80%.
The Nirvana game has 5 reels which are 3 symbols high. There are 20 paylines and you can bet one coin on each of the paylines.

There is only one bonus feature when playing Nirvana and it is activated when you receive two or more of the ‘Free Spin’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. If you receive two of the Free Spin scatter symbol you receive one free spin with a randomly selected bonus feature from those detailed below. If you receive 3 or more of the Free Spin scatter symbol you will be awarded 10 free spins with your choice of the bonus features detailed below:
Wild Seeds – Each spin between 2 and 4 randomly selected symbols will be transformed into Wild symbols. Wild and Free Spin symbols will not be selected.
Mega Reel – Each spin reels 2, 3 and 4 will be synchronised so that they all show the same symbols when they land.

Nirvana is an exceptionally visually attractive game with bonus features that are genuinely engaging and exciting. The House Edge is towards the upper end of the range that is commonly being used in recent slots released, but this isn’t unreasonable given the quality of the game being offered. All in all this is another strong release by Yggdrasil Gaming.
