Gaming Realms plc, the developer and licensor of mobile-focused gaming content, announced that it has signed a brand licensing agreement with The Tetris Company, Inc. to create Tetris® Slingo®, a new introduction to the award-winning Slingo franchise featuring the iconic Tetrimino shapes. Tetris Slingo is expected to launch worldwide in Q4 2023 on both social and real-money platforms.
Slingo is a unique game whereby players spin a slot reel to mark numbers off a 5×5 grid. If players match 5 numbers in a line, they get a ‘Slingo,’ and progress up the pay-ladder. The core Slingo game mechanic lends itself perfectly to new innovations and themes, blending this with the iconic Tetris game mechanic will present one of the most exciting game collaborations to date.
Craig Falciglia, Director, Business Development of Gaming Realms, commented: “Bringing these two popular games together is a truly exciting proposition. Tetris has enjoyed huge global appeal since it first launched in the 1980s and this collaboration will create a fantastic new Slingo format, which we will be taking to both current and new player audiences.“
Maya Rogers, President and CEO of Tetris, commented: “We’re always excited to discover new and unique opportunities to share the Tetris brand with new audiences. Slingo, combined with the infamous Tetriminos and other well-known elements from the Tetris game, introduces a fresh experience to the Slingo audience and Tetris fans alike. We‘re thrilled to be working with Gaming Realms to bring Tetris Slingo to life and can’t wait to see players’ reactions.“
