A Hub for iGaming Innovation

Founded in 2015, SuprNation is a tech company designed to be a hub for innovators in the gambling sector. Their first product hit the market in the summer of 2016, aiming to offer a superior user and gaming experience. SuprNation operates under the brand names VoodooDreams, NYSpinz, and Duelz and holds licenses in jurisdictions such as Malta, Sweden, the Isle of Man, and Great Britain.

In Keuk, Kim stated that acquiring SuprNation aligns with DoubleDown's strategy of tapping into new, high-growth gaming sectors that complement its existing social casino operations. He also emphasized that SuprNation already has a strong customer base in European markets, such as Sweden and the U.K.

The acquisition of SuprNation is an important step in establishing our presence in new high-growth gaming categories that are complementary to our core social casino operations where we can leverage our game developers’ expertise in game creation and our marketing platform to scale the business profitably. SuprNation has a strong and loyal player base in several European markets such as Sweden and the U.K., and we expect to add more regulated jurisdictions over time. We are confident in our ability to leverage our broad portfolio of casino game content and development expertise to further expand SuprNation’s differentiated online casino gaming experiences, such as their flagship title, Duelz.com, to drive growth in the business.
