Five games from the Gaming Realms portfolio have gone live, with plans for another nine to be released shortly. Games that have been released or will be soon include some of the studio’s most played titles such as Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania Slingo, Blackjack X-Change and Slingo Gems.

“The USA is a significant growth market for us and we are delighted that our content is now live in Connecticut, which is their fourth largest igaming state,” said Gaming Realms executive chairman Michael Buckley. “We have a number of new operator launches in the pipeline and we expect to continue the expansion of our popular Slingo content on a global basis.”

Multi-state strategy

In June, the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection issued Gaming Realms with an online gaming service provider licence, enabling the company to supply its content offerings to licensed operators in the state.

“The company’s strategy to sign multi-state deals and direct integration agreements with some of the largest operators in the US has also put us in a stronger position for our Slingo content to go live in a shorter time frame and to capitalise on market growth as more states look to regulate igaming,” said Buckley at the time.

“The company’s expansion outside of North America is progressing as expected and our Slingo games have recently gone live in Italy with Lottomatica, which is that country’s largest operator.”

In September, Gaming Realms reported £8.5m (€9.6m/$9.7m) revenue in H1 2022, an increase of 9.8% year-on-year.
