UK – Multiple operator deals help Britain’s leading games supplier expandBy Phil - 17 September 2014
Realistic Games has moved to new offices having outgrown its existing premises following a year of unprecedented growth.
The award-winning supplier had been based in Wantage, Oxfordshire for over ten years but has now taken over the eighth floor of Reading Bridge House in Reading.
During the last 12 months, they have signed deals with William Hill, Gala Coral, Gaming Realms, and Intellectual Property and Software Limited to strengthen their position as Britain’s leading manufacturer of table and slots games.
They have also rolled out a number of new games, including the top performing slots 6 Appeal and Jackpot Cherries.
A move was necessary to support these developments and accommodate a growing team. But commercial director Andy Harris believes it is also a significant strategic step in the company’s progress.
He said: “We have some ambitious plans for the business and felt that relocating would help to facilitate them. The new offices provide a really enjoyable and creative environment for our existing team, whilst making it easier to attract further talent to the company.
“This in turn will allow us to provide an even better level of service to our customers, launch a number of new clients, and focus more time and resource on making genuinely innovative and successful gaming products.”
In July, Realistic became one of the first suppliers to be granted a Remote Gambling Software Operating Licence by the UK Gambling Commission.
Earlier in the year they acquired a remote gambling licence in Gibraltar and opened an office on the Rock to look after their regulatory and administrative requirements.
Among the major UK-facing operators Realistic now supply cross-channel content to, are bet365, Ladbrokes, William Hill, BetVictor, Paddy Power and Gala Coral.
