Founded by POW Games’ Co-founders Seyhmus Olker and Burak Goncu, Turkiye-based startup Mega Fortuna has raised $2.3 million in seed funding round. The round was led by APY Ventures and joined by Vestel Ventures with the partnership of Tacirler Portföy Gelecek Etki Fonu.
Last year, POW Games sold Food Match 3D ve Tile Match: Home Design Puzzle to UK-based Matchingham Games. The Turkish startup stated that the transaction value was £10 million.
Mega Fortuna Co-founder and CEO Seyhmus Olker commented:
“Mega Fortuna is a tech startup developing mobile apps and games aligned with the evolving needs of users and trends that entertain large audiences. We don’t confine ourselves to developing games or apps for just one specific genre. Armed with our profound expertise in product and growth, we embarked on a journey to build the most extensive portfolio in the mobile entertainment and gaming category.
The declining download trend for hypercasual mobile games in recent years, challenges in marketing, and increasing user acquisition costs have deeply impacted the ecosystem. Global mobile gaming publishers are diversifying traditional game categories into their portfolios through M&A or partnerships. We aim to spearhead this change in the mobile entertainment and gaming ecosystem by approaching it from a broader genre perspective.”
APY Ventures Fund Manager, Mustafa Keceli said:
“We’re thrilled to back Mega Fortuna, which produces value-added technologies, applications, and hybrid casual games for the mobile entertainment category. With their innovative and experienced team, expansive product portfolio, and unique approach that distinguishes them from traditional game studios, we have no doubt they’ll craft a compelling narrative. We aim to support them on this journey and await their future milestones.”
In a short period, Mega Fortuna has amassed a monthly active user base of over 2.5 million with its diverse gaming and mobile app portfolio. The company aims to build an entertainment-focused portfolio that combines apps and games, leveraging rapid production and hyper-growth strategies.
