Akamon Entertainment breaks the 20m registered users mark this month
Akamon, who received investment from Axon’s successful ICT I Fund, has become the leading social casino gaming company in Latin America and Southern Europe. Axon has supported Akamon in developing its presence in both these regions and now Akamon has broken the 20 million registered users mark this month.
Demonstrating its potential, Akamon has doubled its monthly active users to 2.5 million since 2013 and continues in its commitment to diversify its operating countries and gaming platforms. Before Axon’s investment, Spain provided 90% of Akamon’s players database; a figure that is now just 20%. This demonstrates Akamon’s strength in the Latin America and Southern Europe markets and its transition to multi-platform games.
Vicenç Martí, CEO of Akamon Entertainment, comments “The geographical focus and the commitment to local games have been key to achieving a continued growth in the player base. Akamon’s goal is to become the main actor in social casino games in the Latin American market, and the imminent launch of new games for mobile platforms aims to strengthen this positioning”.
