Gaming Realms seeks further US uplift after making Pennsylvania play

As the state’s fiscal year came to a close, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board published a record figure for yearly tax revenue - standing at over $2.3bn for 2022/2023.

Gaming Realms has its sights set achieving further igaming growth across North America, after the group made its maiden move on Pennsylvania’s online casino ecosystem.

After being granted an interactive gaming manufacturer licence by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in May 2021, Gaming Realms has taken its first Slingo game live in the state alongside BetMGM. The firm also vows that more content is scheduled to follow shortly.

Furthermore, the company will also go live with Rush Street Interactive in the Keystone State imminently, and has agreements with a number of other operators to go live with its Slingo Originals content. 

This follows successful launches of Slingo content with BetMGM and Rush Street Interactive, along with other entities, in New Jersey and Michigan. 

The group also says that it will shortly commence the process of obtaining an Ontario igaming licence after the jurisdiction announced its intention to become a regulated market, which “is expected to be larger than any of the regulated US states” which currently permit the activity. 

“We are delighted to be launching our Slingo Originals games in Pennsylvania, which is one of the three leading US states for igaming and where gambling revenue increased over 60 per cent year-on-year in July 2021,” Michael Buckley, executive chairman of Gaming Realms, said of the latest stage of the group’s US growth.

“BetMGM and Rush Street Interactive are both major players in the US gaming industry and have been successfully distributing our Slingo content in New Jersey and Michigan. 

“We look forward to strengthening these relationships and securing additional agreements with market-leading US operators to bring our full suite of Slingo games to a new audience in the US. 

“We intend to expand the group further by obtaining an igaming supplier licence in Ontario Canada, and future US States as they become available.”
