On 17th July 2019, the company announced that in line with their efforts to rebrand the company, they had changed the business name from Chance Interactive to ReelPlay. The announcement was made while the Chief Commercial Officer reiterated their unchanging goal and revealing the business’s intention to expand by serving as a platform for software studios looking to collaborate with them. As Chance Interactive, the business had always operated by creating their products from the start to finish in-house and part of their goal was to maintain and expand this style of operation. At this event, ReelPlay also announced the game next in line for release. This game was revealed to be one with about 117,000 possible ways of winning.
About a month after (precisely 19 August 2019), ReelPlay announced the release of the aforementioned game titled Hypernova Megaways. Hypernova Megaways was the first game released by the business since the rebranding and it came after the pre-release of Buster Hammer Carnival earlier in 2019. On the pre-release of Buster Hammer Carnival to LeoVegas (one of ReelPlay’s partners), the game quickly became a favorite amongst players and this outcome spurred ReelPlay to put out the Hypernova Megaways project.

On the 7th day of August 2019, ReelPlay announced its partnership with a top online casino games company, 888casino. They highlighted 888casino’s knack for selecting quality games for their platform and for seamlessly integrating improved technologies on their platform as one reason for this partnership. ReelPlay also revealed that they intended to make more options available for players on the 888casino through the partnership. The partnership came 12 days before the release of Hypernova Megaways and it was the first slot from ReelPlay accessed by players on the 888casino platform.
About 5 days after initiating the partnership with 888casino, ReelPlay announced its partnership with Relax Gaming. The partnership saw the beginning of the distribution of ReelPlay games on the platform of Relax Gaming. This announcement was made on 12 August 2019 in Malta and ReelPlay also made it known that games such as Hypernova Megaways and Dragon 50,000 would be made available on the Relax Gaming sequel to the partnership.
For Relax Gaming, they were attracted to ReelPlay because of its history of producing quality content and for their experience. ReelPlay, on the other hand, sought a revered distribution platform and to them, Relax Gaming had a fitting history. Relax Gaming had a catalog of about 570 games and a reputation for being transparent with their fees. These attributes contributed to the creation of this partnership.
On 13 January 2020, a new improved deal and an extension of their partnership with Relax Gaming were announced. The earlier deal only saw the publishing of ReelPlay’s proprietary products on Relax gaming but in the new deal, third-party games under ReelPlay were to be made available on the Relax Gaming platform. At this announcement, the Chief Commercial Officer of ReelPlay reiterated the importance of Relax Gaming’s technical range and the pleasant relationship in the sustenance of their deal.
