Gaming Realms secures first multi-state direct-integration agreement in the U.S. with Rush Street Interactive
Gaming Realms plc (AIM: GMR), the developer and licensor of mobile focused gaming content, is pleased to announce that it has secured its first multi-state direct-integration agreement with its existing partner Rush Street Interactive ("RSI"), one of the fastest-growing gaming companies in the U.S., as it continues to focus on increasing its presence in the U.S.
The Company's existing partnership agreement with RSI, which currently sees Gaming Realms' full Slingo Originals portfolio distributed in New Jersey through the Group's Remote Game Server ("RGS"), is being extended to incorporate the additional U.S. State of Pennsylvania, RSI's largest territory.
Furthermore, under the terms of the expanded agreement, Gaming Realms' Slingo Originals content will now be directly integrated into RSI's platform, eliminating the need for a distribution partner. This direct integration with RSI for all U.S. markets, including any future markets the parties may decide to enter into together, is set not only to strengthen the relationship between RSI and Gaming Realms, but to offer a stronger user experience and also enhanced margins for the Group.
Michael Buckley, Executive Chairman of Gaming Realms, commented: "We are thrilled to be expanding our existing licensing agreement with Rush Street Interactive, a major player in the U.S. gaming industry which has recently announced its intention to list on the New York Stock Exchange.
"The agreement underscores the quality and popularity of the Group's Slingo games portfolio, and we are delighted to be able to bring our content to a new audience in the U.S. as we increase our market share.
"We look forward to continue working closely with RSI, focusing on our shared commitment to create and offer exciting and innovative content for players across all markets."
Richard Schwartz, President of Rush Street Interactive, commented: "We are excited to extend our partnership with Gaming Realms to be the first online operator in Pennsylvania to bring these top quality and well-known casino games to our players.
"Our PlaySugarHouse.com players in New Jersey love the Slingo Originals portfolio and we have no doubt our players in Pennsylvania will have fun playing these fan favourite, iconic online games just as much."
