Gaming Realms plc (AIM: GMR), the developer, publisher and licensor of mobile real money and social games, is pleased to announce that it has signed a three-year licensing deal with Sony Pictures Television (SPT). The deal will see Gaming Realms create and host the new gaming website millionairegames.com on its proprietary platform following the successful return of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ in the United Kingdom.
The new millionairegames.com site went live in tandem with the return of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ on ITV, marking the 20th anniversary of SPT’s hit global game show. The deal will also see the creation and launch of a Slingo game format of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ later this summer.
Commenting on the agreement, Patrick Southon, CEO, said:
“We are honoured and excited to be partnering with Sony Pictures Television and developing gaming content around one of television’s most successful gameshows, in celebration of its 20th anniversary. This opportunity is proof of our ability to build creative and innovative content and we look forward to the launch of the new Slingo ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ format in the coming months.”
