Gaming Realms is pleased to provide a full roundup of all its latest games launches and licensing activity during March and April 2022.
In April, Gaming Realms announced its annual results for FY21, reporting an impressive revenue increase of 29% to £14.7m (2020: £11.4m), largely driven by its successful licensing strategy. This momentum has continued into Q1 2022 with licensing revenue of 43% in Q1 2022 to £3.0m (Q1 2021: £2.1m).
Adding to its extensive portfolio of Slingo games, Gaming Realms released Slingo Racing in time for Cheltenham Races held between 15-18 March 2022. This new sports-themed addition to its library combines Slingo’s unique game features that players know and love with a horse-racing twist that provides the chance for players to pocket big wins. For this release, Gaming Realms held an exclusive launch with Flutter Group (on Paddy Power Betfair and Sky Betting and Gaming). On the 26 April, Slingo Inca Trail was released which allows players to follow in the footsteps of Peruvian Incas, taking in views of Machu Picchu on the bonus round.
The Company is also pleased to report that its game Blackjack Xchange won ‘Top Performing Online Table Game’ at the fourth annual Eilers and Krejcik Gaming (“EKG”) Awards Show held in Las Vegas on 24 February 2022. This was an excellent achievement for Gaming Realms, especially being up against such tough competition in its category with IGT and Evolution (NetEnt).
Gaming Realms has been nominated in the Mobile Supplier category at the EGR B2B Awards 2022 and the Company’s smash-hit Slingo Rainbow Riches has also been nominated at the SBC CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards 2022 for the Game Licensed Content category.
Gaming Realms’ content strategy has been to support operators in their objectives to differentiate and engage players by producing exclusive game content. April saw releases that include The Masked Singer Slingo for Skillonnet, and in March released Gala Slingo and Foxy Slingo games in collaboration with Entain. It also developed Tipping Point Slingo exclusively for 32Red, a game based on the smash hit ITV television game show, as well as launching William Hill Vegas Slingo with William Hill in April.
ICE was back on the agenda in 2022, and the Gaming Realms team had the chance to meet and network with many esteemed partners and friends face to face.
Gaming Realms has worked successfully with Relax Gaming Ltd. since 2019 and will be adding to the platform-to-platform agreement in the form of an IP licensing agreement. As part of the partnership, Gaming Realms will develop a brand new Slingo game based on the hugely popular Money Train series.
Gaming Realms was awarded an iGaming Supplier license to supply games within the Canadian province of Ontario ahead of the opening of the province’s regulated iGaming market on 4 April 2022. Gaming Realms’ entry into the Canadian iGaming market marks a significant milestone for the Group. Initial launch operators include BetMGM, Rush Street Interactive, 888, Entain, Ceasar’s, Draftkings, and Kindred. In addition to this, Gaming Realms had its platform and content approved for the Quebec State lottery, Loto Québec.
Over the past month Gaming Realms has gone live in EU/ROTW with Soft2Bet, Loto-Québec, YoBingo, Avento, SuperSeven, Condor Gaming, and Eyas.
The Company also agreed to extend its operational licenses with Entain into Spain and Portugal, and went live in New Jersey and Ontario with a new operator, Bally’s Casino, to strengthen its presence in this market.
