Gaming Realms signs distribution agreement with 4The Player

Gaming Realms (GMR) has announced it has entered into a third-party commercial agreement with


According to the agreement, the best-performing 4ThePlayer games are to be built into the GMR’s platform and to be distributed in the US through GMR’s network of partners. The partnership is set to deliver four to five games in North American markets in 2022 and beyond.

Because of the conflicts of interest that could arise and in accordance with the company’s corporate governance protocols, Chris Ash has retired as a Non-Executive Director of GMR with immediate effect.

Co-founded in 2018 (by Andrew Porter and Chris Ash), 4ThePlayer is a developer of mobile gambling games with a portfolio that aligns with Gaming Realms’ Slingo portfolio (and is currently awaiting licence approval to gaming operators in Europe).

Michael Buckley, Executive Chairman of Gaming Realms, commented: "Chris joined the Board back in 2019 and has provided valuable guidance and strategic advice to the executive management, which has helped to scale our licensing business. Given Chris is a significant shareholder of 4ThePlayer, it is right that he steps down from the Board of Gaming Realms in line with our good corporate governance practice. On behalf of the company, I would like to thank Chris for the important contribution he has made to our success.

"At the same time, we are very excited to be adding a new revenue line to our business by building a selection of's games into our platform. Their portfolio of games complements Gaming Realms' own Slingo content, and their decision to partner with us highlights the strength of our distribution network in the US."
