The Kindred Group has added Slingo Original games after it struck a content agreement with Gaming Realms, the developer of Slingo games.
Casino operator The Kindred Group, which owns online casinos 32Red and Unibet, announced the news this week, revealing that it had struck an agreement with the software provider.
Under the partnership, Gaming Realms will provide a selection of its Slingo Original games to the casino operator including games such as Slingo Rainbow Riches, Slingo Extreme and Slingo XXXtreme.
The agreement enhances the game selection on Kindred Group casino websites while also expanding Gaming Realms’ player reach, particularly because the Kindred Group serves around 25 million people worldwide.
Chief Executive of Gaming Realms Patrick Southon said in a statement: “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Kindred and expanding the reach of our content through its great portfolio of brands, which have an extensive following worldwide.
“This partnership will enable us to continue to expand not only our audience reach but also our global footprint, further strengthening the Slingo brand in the UK and Scandinavian markets.”
Kindred Group’s Head of Casino David Robertson added: “At Kindred, we are committed and focused on innovation and bringing engaging and entertaining games to our customers worldwide in a secure and sustainable environment.
“Our partnership with Gaming Realms, who share our vision of innovation, will see us launch the hugely popular Slingo games across our platforms allowing us to stand by our commitment to consistently offer our customers new and exciting content.”
The news comes two months after the Netherlands Gambling Authority fined the Kindred Group over €400,000 for accepting bets from Dutch customers without a valid gambling license.
According to reports, the Netherlands Gambling Authority, Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), launched an investigation into Unibet between December 2018 and August 2019. They discovered the site was offering games of chance to Dutch players and allowing them to use Dutch payment method iDEAL for transactions through the site.
This led the regulatory body to find the casino operator. Months before this, Casumo casino was also fined over similar actions, allowing Dutch customers to openly gamble on the firm’s website and accepting transactions through the iDEAL payment method.
Currently, the law prevents KSA from providing licenses for gambling but a new bill passed this February will allow the company to issue license from January 1st, 2021. Already, dozens of casino operators have lined up to apply for licenses.
