Executive Summary

Originally founded as Midasplayer.com Ltd. in 2003, casual game-maker King Digital ramped up sales from $164 million in 2012 to $1.89 billion in 2013 -- an increase of over 1000% in just one year -- generating $559 million in net income. The company's business model is freemium. However, with the extraordinarily high average monthly spend of $17.32 per user, the firm has developed a recipe for creating some of the most addictive games of all time. King games boast 128 million daily active users and over 1.2 billion gameplays per day!
