Online gambling game creator Gaming Realms has signed a global five-year machine licensing agreement with US company Scientific Games.

Scientific Games Corporation, a provider of gambling products and services to lottery and gaming organisations, will develop new slot games for traditional gaming machines, video lottery terminals and on-property handheld devices.

Scientific Games will now have exclusive rights to produce and distribute Slingo-branded slot machines, which offer an online form of bingo, to casinos and related properties on a worldwide basis.

The latest agreement comes a month after Gaming Realms closed a deal to move its bingo games into the US market, through an agreement with Pala Interactive in New Jersey.

​The agreement includes a minimum guaranteed royalty stream to Gaming Realms payable within the first two years and is an expansion of Scientific Games' existing licence to produce Slingo branded scratch lottery tickets.

"Following on from the success of our printed lottery products partnership with Scientific Games, we are delighted with the opportunity to bring Slingo to slot machines in casinos around the world with a market leader," chief executive Patrick Southon said.

Prior to this agreement, the group's US licencing activity has been primarily in the land-based machine, social casino and lottery scratchcard market.
