Mark Segal, Chief Financial Officer of Gaming Realms, commented:

"We're thrilled to have secured the licensing rights to NetEnt brands - their slot games have dominated the gaming industry for years. The combination of Slingo and Starburst will create a new game of significant global stature bringing together the best features of both, making this collaboration very exciting for fans."

 

Andy Whitworth, Chief Commercial Officer at NetEnt, commented: 

"To widen the reach of our portfolio and building brand awareness in new markets is a vital part of our strategy. Gaming Realms has an extraordinary reach among Slingo fans, especially in the US. We are certain that great games will come out from combining Gaming Realms' expertise, the Slingo grid mechanic and our renowned IP."
