Spil Games, a Hilversum, the Netherlands-based localized global network of online social-gaming platforms tailored to girls, teens, and families, has received a minority investment from North Bridge Growth Equity.
The company intends to use the capital to expand its global user base through investing in content (social, multi-player and single-player games) and further enhancing the user-experience; create a cross-platform gaming experience for players to play their favorite games anytime, anywhere; enhance the advertising value proposition through enabling advertisers to connect and engage with its audiences through a deep integration into the social layer of its gaming platforms.
Led by CEO and Co-Founder Peter Driessen, Spil Games operates online social-gaming platforms localized in 19 languages, which entertain 140 million unique visitors from around the world each month. In its current portfolio, the company has a collection of more than 4,000 online games, which have been developed both in house and through partnerships with top-tier game developers.
Spil Games is also present on mobile devices through browser-based and native application versions of the company’s targeted social-gaming platforms.
Following the investment, venture capital firm Van den Ende & Deitmers will continue to support the company as a minority shareholder.
