Part-time Jersey Shore homeowners won’t be the only ones coming from the Garden State to Pennsylvania at the end of the summer.

The full Slingo Originals portfolio in New Jersey will now be available in Pennsylvania thanks to an extension of an existing agreement between Rush Street Interactive and Gaming Realms.

Gaming Realms distributes Slingo Originals. It will be the company’s first multistate direct integration agreement in the United States.

RSI operates two online casinos in Pennsylvania, BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse.

Slingo Coming to PA

PlaySugarHouse in New Jersey offers Slingo Originals, and RSI says it expects them to do well in PA also.

Richard Schwartz, president of Rush Street Interactive, commented in a press release:

We are excited to extend our partnership with Gaming Realms to be the first online operator in Pennsylvania to bring these top-quality and well-known casino games to our players.”

Under the terms of the expanded agreement, Gaming Realms’ Slingo Originals content will now be directly integrated into RSI’s platform. By doing so, it eliminates the need for distribution from a third-party aggregator. Also, the direct integration with RSI for all US markets, including any future markets, is an effort to strengthen the relationship between RSI and Gaming Realms and offer a better user experience.

Gaming Realms is the developer and licensor of mobile-focused gaming content and is growing its presence in the US.

Michael Buckley, executive chairman of Gaming Realms, said:

“The agreement underscores the quality and popularity of the Group’s Slingo portfolio, and as we increase our foothold in the US market, we are delighted to be able to bring our content to a new audience, starting in the US state of Pennsylvania, where RSI leads in online casino market share.

“We look forward to continuing to work closely and expanding our relationship with such a highly acclaimed US operator, whilst remaining focused on our shared commitment to create and offer exciting and innovative content for players across all markets.”

What are Slingo Originals?

Slingo Originals provide mobile-focused games that combine elements of slots, bingo and table game play. So, how do Slingo games work? Players spin the slot reel to eliminate numbers from the 5×5 grid, aiming to mark off 5 in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally (a slingo). Each slingo completed will award a prize determined by the pay table.

Some Slingo titles include:

  • Ante Up
  • Reel Riches
  • Fortunes

Rush Street to hit New York Stock Exchange

Rush Street Interactive recently confirmed that it will be publicly traded (RSI) after it completes its merger with dMY Technology. Bloomberg first reported news of the merger and the plans to go public on July 24.

dMY, basically a blank-check company, and its shareholders need to approve the deal, which is anticipated to close this year.

Rush Street anticipates more than $235 million in cash and an initial market cap of more than $2 billion once the transaction closes.
