Canada Casino: Loto-Québec obtains Slingo suite from Gaming Realms

Gaming Realms announced the debut of its services in Québec, focused on its Slingo Originals games, through cooperation with Loto-Québec. This provincial organization is the province’s only licensed online gaming operator. Québec, with a population of around 8.5 million, is one of the largest iGaming markets in Canada.

Slingo mechanics will be incorporated to IGT titles

Gaming Realms Is Now Available on Loto-Québec

Slingo Extreme and Blackjack Xchange will be launched first on Loto-iGaming Québec’s platform by Gaming Realms, a UK-based firm that develops, produces, and licenses Slingo, slots, and casino games for mobile. The remainder of the portfolio’s titles will be released shortly thereafter. Residents of Québec have had access to the Slingo game type for some time now, and annual ticket sales exceed several million. Gaming Realms intends to introduce its mobile gaming content in the province in collaboration with its North American partner, Light & Wonder (previously Scientific Games Corporation), a multi-platform iGaming company and World Lottery Association member.

Gaming Realms Removes Barrier to Entry into the Ontario Market

Gaming Realms’ launch into Quebec comes after the company obtained a license in Ontario earlier this month through a subsidiary, Alchemybet Limited. As reported in January 2022, the Canadian province is about to establish its iGaming sector on April 4, 2022. Ontario’s new launch date was established in response to delays, with the province originally planning to open to private enterprises in December 2021.

Gaming Realms intends to launch its entire game portfolio in Ontario, which has a population of around 15 million people – more than any other state in the United States where the business has a license to distribute products. The developer anticipates better revenues than those generated in New Jersey, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, where Gaming Realms operates. According to recent research published by PlayCanada, the opening of private online gambling operators in Canada will create around 1,300 new jobs in Ontario, however, some have expressed concern about the market’s launch, noting considerable job losses. This week, Loto-Québec became the first Canadian province to introduce Red Tiger games. This comes on the heels of another agreement last week between Red Tiger’s parent firm, Evolution, and Loto-Québec to expand their live casino game collaboration.

Corporate Notes

Gaming Realms’ chief financial officer, Mark Segal, indicated that the company was thrilled with the debut of the company’s products in the new province after securing a license. Additionally, he stated that 2022 is an “exciting time” for the developer of mobile gaming material, as the company is establishing a strong foundation in the Canadian market and aims to expand even further in the North American region.

Stéphane Martel, Loto-head Québec’s of products and innovation, stated that Gaming Realms’ gaming content complements Loto-online Québec’s casino games portfolio and that Loto-consumers Québec will benefit from the platform’s expanded offerings.
