A few months back we launched the beta version of this portal and have now launched it officially.”
As there are no subscription charges to play games on the portal, explaining the revenue model Mr. Maruti Shankar added, “There is no subscription charge on the portal, so, our revenue model works around Online Advertising, licensing of the games to other portals/aggregators, in-game advertising and sales of top games.”
