Impressive results were achieved with Gamelight’s AI-powered recommendation platform, which aims to find the perfect player for each title and user base.

The Campaign Success Factors

Additionally, the campaign incorporated 18 varied in-game events, strategically designed to maintain player interest and diversify their interactions within the game. A long-term event postback window provided deeper insights by allowing for extended analysis of user behaviour, which enhanced targeting and optimization strategies. Furthermore, real-time data and feedback loops facilitated ongoing adjustments to the campaign, ensuring its responsiveness and sustained success in engaging players effectively.

The D30 ROAS goals were exceeded across multiple markets including the UK, Germany, South Korea, and Japan, with an overall performance boost of over 200%.

Specifically, the ROAS over-delivery reached 246% on Android and 223% on iOS. This achievement highlights the effectiveness of Gamelight’s user acquisition platform, which, by leveraging its advanced AI algorithms, was able to pinpoint and engage the target audiences effectively, thereby exceeding the set targets by significant margins.

The campaign experienced extraordinary success in Japan and South Korea, significantly over-delivering the D30 ROAS goals by 284%.
