This is the fourth state that will now offer its unique 'Slingo' iGaming experience.

Gaming Realms has been awarded an Online Gaming Service Provider license by Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection. This will be the fourth state to license Gaming Realms, a developer and licensor of gaming content, after Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Jersey.

Sports betting companies DraftKings and FanDuel both already have multi-state deals and direct integrations with Gaming Realms and conduct business in Connecticut. The company expects its Slingo Content to go live with these two operators by the end of the year, once certifications have been finalized.

Slingo is a unique genre of game in which players spin a slot reel to mark numbers off a 5x5 grid. Once players have eliminated five numbers off a line they get a ‘slingo’ and progress up the prize ladder, collecting fishing rod symbols, until they can collect cash prizes. This game aims to put a fun twist on mobile bingo.

Gaming Realms Executive Chairman of Gaming Realms Michael Buckley commented: "We are delighted to have been granted an Online Gaming Service Provider license in Connecticut, which now sees Gaming Realms licensed in the US's four largest states for iGaming, as well as in Ontario, Canada.

"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 capitalize on market growth as more states look to regulate iGaming.

"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."

Gaming Realms is a UK-based social gaming and iGaming operator. The company develops, publishes and licenses mobile gaming content in the UK and internationally. Its products include slingo, bingo, slots and other casual games.
