Gaming Realms plc (AIM: GMR), the developer and licensor of mobile-focused gaming content, today announced that it will be offering two new games in partnership with Discovery Channel. The games will be available via Slingo online platforms.
Gaming Realms will incorporate one of Discovery Channel’s most popular and long-standing global events, Shark Week, and one of the network’s most highly-rated TV series, Deadliest Catch, into Slingo games. Shark Week has become a global pop culture phenomenon that takes fascinated viewers, who tune in every year, on a week-long trip with dynamic programming to see the thrilling adventures of these magnificent creatures, that thrills fans of all ages.
The first game, Slingo Shark Week, which is sublicensed and based upon the market-leading land-based slot from Everi, was released at the end of May and the second Slingo game, incorporating the Deadliest Catch brand, is expected to be released towards the end of this year. Slingo Shark Week involves the players spinning a slot reel to mark numbers off a 5×5 grid, aiming to mark off 5 in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally (to get a “Slingo”). Each Slingo completed will award a prize determined by the pay-ladder. Numerous bonus games such as Break The Cage and Fish Grab make the fright-infested waters of the Shark Week TV series come alive for players who brave the deadly waters in this real-money game.
Craig Falciglia, Director of Business Partnerships at Gaming Realms, commented: “It’s incredibly exciting to be partnering with Discovery Channel to create these new Slingo games based on two very popular television series. We see this as a great opportunity to significantly increase the awareness of our Slingo content.”
Ian Woods, SVP International Consumer Products at Warner Bros. Discovery adds: “For gaming fans who are also fans of Discovery Channel, this partnership offers them an opportunity to interact in a deeper way with titles and brands they love. We’re delighted to
have found such a supportive partner in Gaming Realms and looking forward to seeing how fans catch on to the games.”
