Realistic Games is a digital entertainment company founded in 2002 by a group of industry professionals with extensive experience in the areas of gaming design, development, and operation. The company’s registered office is in Oxon, UK, although in 2014, Realistic established an office and operation in Gibraltar, obtaining a Remote Gambling Licence from the Gibraltar Gambling Commission. Originally, between 2002 and 2011, the firm focused exclusively on launching online casino games for use on third-party platforms, partnering with well-known industry names such as Bet365, Ladbrokes, and VictorChandler.
The firm took a new direction in 2011, deciding to move away from content developed purely for third-party platforms to focus on the Realistic Games Library, also known as ReGaL. ReGaL went live in 2011 and became the distribution mechanism for all Realistic Games online content, though the firm still worked in partnership with other major gaming brands, with Stan James becoming the first partner to launch on the ReGaL platform.
