Gaming Realms signs Monopoly licensing agreement with SG Digital
Gaming Realms has been busy recently. Back in May the online casino games developer signed a licensing deal with Sony Pictures Television. Now, the company has announced it has signed a similar arrangement with the SG Digital subsidiary of the American lottery and gaming machines innovator, Scientific Games Corporation.
Gains in Board Games
In a press release put out on Monday, the London-based firm explained that the deal has seen it secure the rights to produce a real-money iGaming title based around Monopoly. This is an immensely popular title produced by Hasbro Incorporated and it could prove fruitful.
Slingo Monopoly coming
Gaming Realms explained that the three-year alliance means that it will soon get to work on releasing a Slingo Monopoly-branded title before 2019 is over. This game will be released via business-to-business and business-to-consumer channels. The company explained that SG Digital holds ‘the Monopoly brand rights for the online gaming space’ and then went on to explain the game will be made available “through its distribution channel of operators and third-party sites.”
Patrick Southon is the Chief Executive Officer for Gaming Realms. He expressed that this was “a really exciting moment” and explained that his company was excited to begin developing a game that uses “the world-renowned Monopoly brand.”
In a full statement, Southon said:
“We continuously look to develop new concepts and offer players an expansive and engaging range of games and believe that Slingo Monopoly will offer just that. We are now focused on the development of the game and look forward to announcing the worldwide launch early this year.”
‘New spin’ for a classic
