Gaming Realms signs licensing agreement with IGT

 

Gaming Realms plc (AIM: GMR), the developer and licensor of mobile-focused gaming content, is pleased to announce that it has signed a licensing agreement with International Game Technology PLC ("IGT"), a multinational gaming and lottery company.

 

Under the terms of the agreement, Gaming Realms will produce Slingo games, an entertainment genre popular among mobile gaming enthusiasts that combines elements of slots and bingo, based on some of the highest-performing slots brands within IGT's game library, including the Cleopatra® and Da Vinci Diamonds® brands.

 

Michael Buckley, Executive Chairman of Gaming Realms, commented: "Combining Slingo with IGT's iconic proprietary gaming brands represents a compelling partnership, as we accelerate expansion across the U.S. and European markets. Given the popularity of IGT's titles, this is a fantastic opportunity for Gaming Realms to introduce its Slingo genre to new audiences and welcome a new generation of Slingo fans."

 

Enrico Drago, Senior Vice President of IGT PlayDigital, said: "Partnering with Gaming Realms to produce Slingo games represents an exciting opportunity for IGT to extend the reach of some of our top-performing casino brands. These iconic IGT brands are widely recognized by land-based and digital players alike, which will assist Gaming Realms with its goal of creating new Slingo players, while reinforcing the power of IGT's brands in the fast-growing online market."
