Licensing Agreement with Tetris to Develop a New Tetris Slingo Game

We have signed a brand licensing agreement with The Tetris Company, Inc., a deal that will see the introduction of a Slingo® version of the iconic Tetris® game.

Tetris Slingo is set to launch in the latter half of 2023 on social and real-money platforms.

The classic elements from Tetris will be combined with Gaming Realms’ Slingo concept, where each spin on a slot reel marks numbers off a 5×5 grid. If players match five numbers in a line, they are awarded a ‘Slingo,’ and progress up an incrementally increasing pay ladder.

Parallels between this feature and the creation of lines using the Tetris game’s distinctive Tetrimino shapes are evident and will offer seamless integration of both titles’ core mechanics.

Numerous Slingo titles have been developed that harness the popularity of blockbuster IPs, having become a core tenet of Gaming Realms’ growth strategy in recent years. Fan favourites include Slingo Deadliest Catch™, Slingo Shark Week™ and Slingo Deal Or No Deal™ which have been released to both critical and commercial success.

The nostalgic and mass market appeal of Tetris coupled with the thrilling and engaging features of the Slingo mechanic will present one of Gaming Realms’ most exciting game collaborations to date.

Craig Falciglia, Director of Business Development at Gaming Realms, commented: “Bringing these two popular games together is a truly exciting proposition. Tetris has enjoyed huge global appeal since it first launched in the 1980s and this collaboration will create a fantastic new Slingo format, which we will be taking to both current and new player audiences.”

Maya Rogers, President and CEO of Tetris, commented: “We’re always excited to discover new and unique opportunities to share the Tetris brand with new audiences. Slingo, combined with the infamous Tetriminos and other well-known elements from the Tetris game, introduces a fresh experience to the Slingo audience and Tetris fans alike. We’re thrilled to be working with Gaming Realms to bring Tetris Slingo to life and can’t wait to see players’ reactions.”
