MIDASPLAYER.COM REACHES 10 MILLION GAMES PER MONTH
ONLINE GAMES SITE ANNOUNCES 300% GROWTH IN GAME PLAYING OVER LAST QUARTER
London, November 1, 2004. Midasplayer.com today announces that it now has over 10 million games played per month - more than 300% growth on the three million games played per month in July this year.
The astonishing increase in game-play was driven by popular new game launches such as multiplayer pool, and new European and international distribution deals. Midasplayer cumulative registered users surpassed 1 million this week.
Midasplayer.com is already Europe's biggest skill gaming site but these new figures show that the UK owned and operated business is vying for the global no.1 position*.
Midasplayer.com was founded in August 2003 and in just over one year has grown to dominate the international market with its combination of multi-player, multi-lingual, and multi-currency gaming.
"Great games and strong partners fuel the Midasplayer rocket" says Toby Rowland, COO. "So far, we have only scratched the surface of what is possible with our skill gaming model. Over the next few months, Midasplayer will begin to address a mainstream audience across Europe and the world. We look forward to flying higher still over the next quarter."
The growth can also be attributed to the increasing international popularity of skill-gaming. Screen Digest (Online Gaming Markets to 2007 Report) estimates that the current market is worth $137million compared to $35million in 2000 and forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 40% to 2007.
