Kalaari Capital and Hike backed WinZO has partnered with Rein Games and Deftouch to bring multiplayer real time pool and multiplayer cricket to its 20 million registered users. The partnership comes after WinZO’s recent announcement of tie-up with Tencent to make PUBG tournaments available in 12 languages.
In the last few months, WinZO has partnered with over 50 indie-developers and global gaming studios such as Garena (for FreeFire), Nazara Technologies to host their games on its platform and provide monetisation for the vernacular audience through its micro-transaction backed model.
