Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection has granted Gaming Realms an online gaming service provider licence. 

Marking the fourth US state where the developer and licensor of mobile focused gaming content is licensed, the company expects its Slingo content to go live in the state with DraftKings and FanDuel by the end of 2022, once final certifications are completed. 

“We are delighted to have been granted an online gaming service provider licence in Connecticut, which now sees Gaming Realms licensed in the US’s four largest states for igaming, as well as in Ontario, Canada,” highlighted Michael Buckley, Executive Chair of Gaming Realms.

“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.”

Having cited its launch into the Michigan and Pennsylvania regulated igaming markets as a driving factor of its “strong performance” in the company’s end of year pre-closing update, the development also follows its Alchemybet subsidiary receiving an igaming supplier licence for Ontario back in March.

Buckley concluded: “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.”
