Loto-Québec will supply iGaming content developer Gaming Realms’ content across the province.
The deal will see Gaming Realms roll out its Slingo portfolio in Québec with the lottery corporation. The games will be made available through the company’s North American distribution partner, Light & Wonder, which has been licensed as a supplier in Ontario’s regulated online gaming market. Alchemybet, a subsidiary of Gaming Realms, has also been licensed to operate in Ontario.
Gaming Realms is a studio that delivers online gaming content, bingo, slots, and other casual games by utilizing its proprietary data platform. Its Slingo brand is already available in the Québec lottery market, with several million Slingo scratch tickets sold each year.
“Hot on the heels of being awarded our Ontario iGaming license, we are delighted to have gone live with Loto-Québec,” said Gaming Realms chief financial officer Mark Segal. “2022 is set to be an exciting time for the Company as we move to establish a strong foothold in the Canadian market and work towards our longer-term plan of expanding further into the North American market.”
Stéphane Martel, Loto-Québec head of products and innovation, added: “Gaming Realms’ games are a great addition to our growing online casino game portfolio. Our players will enjoy this new offer.”
Loto-Québec also recently agreed to become the first Canadian lottery to offer games from Evolution-owned games studio Red Tiger on its Espacejeux.com platform.
