Social Poker is becoming more and more popular every single month. Most people are aware of Zynga Poker, which is probably the biggest and most famous social poker operator in the world, but there's competition coming from Russia, where Crazy Panda is growing and they're doing it fast.
Crazy Panda announced that they have reached 110 million users on their World Poker Club social poker platform, as well as other titles from them. That amount of users is very high compared to almost all real-money operators and also compared to most social poker operators.
The Moscow-based company, which started out with just a few guys developing the product, is now looking to take the game outside of the Russian-speaking market and reach out for the rest of Europe as well as the American market. The company now has more than 100 employees to help reach these markets.
Crazy Panda has their social poker platform available on all the biggest social media sites, including Facebook, Yahoo, Mobage, VK and many more local platforms as well as having created applications for iOS and Android platforms.
“In just a few years, we have gone from being a small independent developer to a full development and publishing operation with more than 100 people working on and running our games business,” Bogdan Kuznetsov, Chief Executive Officer of Crazy Panda said.
“We’re constantly looking to take our games to new audiences, add innovative features, and leverage the power of social networks to reach people around the world. Our growth is a testament to the team pushing that vision and executing on our strategic plan to be a top international publisher on mobile and social platforms.” He added.
