- Dutch social game maker translates new launches and product updates into biggest growth spurt yet
GamePoint, one of the world’s leading synchronous multiplayer social game developers, reached their 10 million active registration milestone today following several months of exceptionally strong performance for their flagship titles GamePoint Bingo and Royaldice both on Facebook canvas and their own website www.gamepoint.com
“We couldn’t be more proud of reaching this milestone” said Rik Haandrikman, Director of Business Development, GamePoint. “With over half of those 10 million active registered users originating in the last 2 years, we’ve seen more players discovering our games now than in any other time during our 16-year existence. The rigorous product improvements of the last year or so are definitely paying off both in terms of players and financially. The latter is especially interesting, because it has allowed us to go on a bit of a recruiting drive which has seriously beefed up our talent pool. We expect GamePoint’s launches in the next couple of quarters to turn some heads.”
With sizable playerbases in over a dozen countries and a razorsharp focus on community and conversation, GamePoint games are a hotbed of human interaction with friendships and relationships popping up frequently. “We feel that the fact that we give players a place to connect to others on a human level makes us stand out from the crowd. We’re about more than just playing a game: We’re about building relationships,” according to Amon Endt, CEO. That all that relationship building pays off, is shown best by checking out GamePoint’s chart-topping engagement numbers with average time spent per day per active user at 92 minutes.
A series of improvements made to the GamePoint suite of social (casino) games over the last year or so has proven very successful in increasing that engagement even further. “We had two missions going into this latest series of changes,” according to Bob Christof, Director of Game Development: “We wanted to increase time spent and we wanted to further leverage our relationship with Facebook by improving on our integration with their platform. The latest registration bump is definitely due to that focus on using the organic discovery channels the Facebook platform offers”.
