SciPlay Corporation said it has acquired Koukoi Games, a Finland-based developer and operator of casual mobile games.
The Koukoi team that developed the hit title Om Nom Run which has been downloaded over 30 million times will take over the organic build of SciPlay’s new casual game concept, a key step in its expansion in the casual genre and revenue diversification strategy to drive long-term growth and shareholder value, it said
Koukoi’s casual mobile games are built on their proprietary technology platform that includes modular game feature components and real-time multiplayer engines that can be used across games. The combination of Koukoi’s technology platform and SciPlay’s data driven “Engine” will be the foundation of SciPlay’s drive to further expand in the $20B+ casual gaming genre.
“Our studio was founded on our passion to make casual mash-up games that blend successful attributes of multiple genres, appealing to broad audiences through engaging gameplay and deep meta storylines,” said Antti Kananen, Chief Executive Officer of Koukoi.
Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed.
