Social gaming-focused Gaming Realms Plc announced three significant deals with Zynga, Endemol and Fremantle Media on the back of preliminary results for the full year 2015 period in which it reported an increase in group revenues of 116 percent and real-money-gaming revenue of 305 percent.

Endemol will develop a new game leveraging the Slingo format and Endemol’s Deal or No Deal brand which is expected to launch in the second quarter 2016.
Last, but not least, Zynga will bring a new Slingo branded slot game to the social casino market, paying Gaming Realm’s a royalty on net revenue over a three-year term.
