AviaGames, a Mountain View, CA-based mobile, skill-based gaming company, raised $40m in funding.
Backers included ACME Capital, Washington Harbour Partners and Powerhouse Capital, as well as previous investors Makers Fund and Galaxy Digital.
The company intends to use the capital to accelerate player acquisition, develop new games on the platform, and expand its team and international presence. In conjunction with the funding, Hany Nada, co-founder of ACME Capital, has joined AviaGames’ board of directors.
Founded in 2017 by Vickie Chen and Ping Wang, AviaGames has published Pocket7Games, a unified gaming platform with an all-in-one app as well as a specific game app tailored to specific player communities. The platform features 10+ unique games linked to a single membership and wallet system, allowing players to switch among casino, puzzle, action, card, math and brain games.
The company today has more than 90 employees. As the company looks to expand beyond the U.S., it is actively hiring engineers and data scientists, expecting to reach 130 employees by the end of the year.
