Gaming Realms is pleased to provide a full roundup of all its latest games launches and licensing activity during May and June 2022.
The Company released a number of new games during the months of May and June. The beginning of May saw the launch of Detroit Red Wings Slingo in Michigan in partnership with BetMGM. This much loved version of the game leverages branding from the Detroit Red Wings hockey franchise and is sure to appeal to the team’s die-hard fans. In partnership with Warner Bros.Discovery, Slingo Shark Week was released on 31 May 2022 – this release is hugely exciting as Shark Week, airing July 2022 on Discovery Channel, is also the longest-running cable television event in history.
On 21 June 2022, Gaming Realms released Slingo Da Vinci Diamonds adding the unique Slingo game to the hugely popular online slot game Da Vinci Diamonds, developed by IGT plc. This is part of a broader deal with IGT which will see the Slingo game integrated into IGT’s highest-performing slot brands including Cleopatra.
The Company is also pleased to report that its smash-hit Slingo Rainbow Riches, which is based on the popular Rainbow Riches game franchise, was nominated at the SBC CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards 2022 in the Game Licensed Content category. The awards help establish and nurture high-level development and innovation across the casino game development industry and takes place annually in Malta.
Also in June, Gaming Realms won the Mobile Supplier of the Year at the Global B2B EGR Awards. The EGR awards celebrate the most successful and innovative online gaming companies. Given the Company was up against tough competition such as Relax Gaming, Push Gaming, Greentube, Oryx Gaming, and others – it’s an honour for the team to win the award.
Gaming Realms was awarded an iGaming Supplier licence to supply games within the state of Connecticut, making it the fourth US state where the Group is licensed. By the end of 2022, once final certifications are completed, Gaming Realms expects its Slingo content to go live in the state with the two biggest existing operators, DraftKings and FanDuel, through the Company’s existing multi-state deals and direct integrations.
PartnershipsGaming Realms signed a further partnership deal with International Game Technology plc (“IGT”), a multinational gaming and lottery company and producer of widely popular digital games. The partnership will see Gaming Realms produce Slingo games based on some of the highest-performing slot brands within IGT’s game library, including Slingo Da Vinci Diamonds that went live at the end of June and a Slingo version of IGT’s Cleopatra slot, which has a release date set in Q1 2023.
Gaming Realms also struck a new partnership deal with Discovery Inc, the American, multinational mass media factual television conglomerate, which will see Gaming Realms produce Slingo games in addition to Shark Week Slingo. The Company looks forward to producing further Slingo games for fans of some of the channel’s best-loved programmes.
