US-based casual mobile game studio Luckmon has announced the closing of a pre-seed funding round. With the $1.3 million raised, the company will focus on expanding its casual mobile game library with reward-based titles.
The round’s angel investors have been reported as Chang Kim (CEO of Tapas Media), Thor Chan (CEO of AAX), Changsu Lee (CEO of Allganize), Jay Lee (CEO of the Korean American Chamber of Commerce), K2G Tech Fund, and Primer Sazze Venture Capital Partners.
The company launched its first title, Luckmon Games: Reward, in beta version. The game is already available in 120 countries and has surpassed the 150,000 download count. Luckmon Games: Reward contains classic casual games, such as Solitaire, Sudoku, and Chess, with more to arrive in the upcoming months.
CEO of Luckmon, David Son, made comments about the investment round and the direction of the firm:
“Our mission is to become the best casual gaming platform out there for everyone everywhere. Luckmon Games isn’t about who the best player is; it’s for anyone who loves to play games and make money. Our team is currently developing popular casual mobile games that are free to play and reward players with Luckmon’s in-app currency gems.”
“These gems are awarded to players who continue to play Luckmon games and can be accumulated as they play different modes, challenges, and completing daily missions. It’s really endless. Then, of course, the gems can be exchanged for gift cards that we have in-shop.”
Luckmon aims to integrate classic casual games with the idea of play-and-earn that allows players to earn real-life rewards. Players can select from a wide variety of prizes, including gift cards from huge brands such as Amazon, eBay, PlayStation Store, Best Buy, Walmart, and many more.
