The software provider Gaming Realms has partnered with the leading brand IGT (International Game Technology) to produce Slingo games. This partnership means the supplier will develop Slingo titles that are based on popular IGT slots, such as Wheel of Fortune, Enchanted Unicorn, and Da Vinci Diamonds.
Slingo is a relatively new type of casino game that blends elements from bingo and slot machines to create a new and exciting entertainment experience. Currently, Slingo titles are very popular among mobile players.
Investing in a new genre of casino games
The executive chairman of Gaming Realms, Michael Buckley, had this to say of the news: “Combining Slingo with IGT’s iconic proprietary gaming brands represents a compelling partnership, as we accelerate expansion across the US and European markets.”
He continued: “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.”
Expanding the selection available to online gamers
“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,” added Enrico Drago, senior vice president of IGT PlayDigital.
“These iconic IGT brands are widely recognised 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.”
iGaming operators and suppliers should also consider expanding their existing portfolio of casino games beyond regular slots, as other genres become more and more popular among online audiences.
