Istanbul-based Dream Games has achieved a new success in the gaming industry by raising $155 million in a $1 billion Series B financing round.
This financing round is seen as a big leap for the Dream Games. The company had raised $50 million about three and a half months ago, and this financing round is led by the Index Ventures, Makers Fund, Balderton Capital, IVP, and Kora. Currently, the focus of funding is Dream Games itself, as well as Royal Match, a puzzle game that was released worldwide in March.
According to AppAnnie’s data, the game has 6 million monthly active users and in-game spending reaches $20 million per month, which is a big step for Dream Games. This success with the Royal Match has made it one of the top 20 grossing games in the US, UK, and Germany at the same tier.
Soner Aydemir, Co-Founder and CEO of Dream Games, said in an interview:
“The fund we have obtained will be used for intensive user acquisition in many geographies, especially in Japan, South Korea, and China. Our main goal is to scale the game to become one of the largest in the global market.”
In addition to its significant growth, Dream Games took a very focused approach with Royal Match and worked on the game for a long time before it was released. Aydemir added the following comments on the subject:
“We spent a lot of time, a lot of testing, on very small details over several years to create the dynamics of the game. But at the same time, our feelings were strong. Our users really appreciate this approach.”
