Azerion has taken complete ownership of Spil Games, giving it the leading position in casual games across all platforms and dominance in its Netherlands home.
The mobile division of Spil Games, together with a 5% stake in its portals business, was acquired by Azerion last year. The latest move brings the remainder of the company into the Azerion family.
With 60 million monthly visits to its 30 gaming portals, Spil Games was the global leader in online casual gaming — that baton now passes to Azerion. The portals include such famous names as agame.com, gamesgames.com and mousebreaker.com.
This acquisition is an excellent fit for our high-speed growth strategy, says Erol Erturk, Executive Vice President Content and Strategic Partnerships at Azerion who will also take over the running of Spil’s portals. Spil Games enriches the reach, monetisation and content aspects of our business.
Game Distribution, an Azerion company which offers publishers engaging content and revenue opportunities, will add more than 15,000 web games from Spil’s portfolio. At the same time, Azerion’s existing games will enhance the Spil Games portals, bringing new revenue streams and offering advertisers a major boost in reach.
