In a trading update, Gaming Realms said revenue in 2023 is expected to amount to £23.0m (€26.9m/$29.0m). Should the developer reach this amount, it would be 23% higher than in the previous year.
There is also an expected rise in EBITDA, with this forecast to be no lower than £10.0m. This would be up 28% on the total reported in 2022.
Gaming Realms said both expected increases would be in line with board expectations for the year, with the performance mainly driven by content licensing. The developer adds that it reported growth across all major markets.
During 2023, Gaming Realms went live with a further 44 partners in markets around the world. Other key highlights included an igaming licence in West Virginia, its seventh in North America, and another in Greece. Launches are planned for both markets during the coming months.
In addition, Gaming Realms continued its work with high profile entertainment brands. In Q4, it launched Slingo titles based on classic video games Space Invaders and Tetris.
