RapidFire's in-game advertising technology will allow Miniclip to
monetize ad space inside of its online games, in a way that's
measurable and scalable.
VANCOUVER, June 18, 2014 /CNW/ - RapidFire, the #1 in-game advertising network, announced today a key partnership
with Miniclip which will bring dynamic in-game advertising (DIGA) into
numerous 3D browser games developed by the online game giant. The
partnership will create an entirely new revenue stream for Miniclip,
and will enable media buyers to execute real-time and scalable
advertising campaigns inside of various games containing RapidFire's
proprietary in-game ad technology.
RapidFire's technology, known as the Radial Network™, allows
advertisements to be streamed in real-time inside of a video game's 3D
environment on objects such as billboards, hoardings, bus stops, and
posters - essentially any object inside a game where a player is likely
to see an advert in real life.
Miniclip, the world's largest privately owned online gaming website, has
kicked off the partnership by linking the Radial Network™ to the
following 3D browser games: Motocross Nitro, Turbo Racing 3, Diablo
Valley Rally, Pro Kicker Frenzy, and Basketball Jam Shots. In the
coming weeks, additional Miniclip games will feature RapidFire's
dynamic in-game advertising.
"We're thrilled to work with a strong partner like Miniclip, who has the
ability to bring multiple game titles and millions of new players into
our network," says Jordan L. Howard, the 24 year old Founder and CEO.
"Miniclip is always looking for innovative advertising technologies that
fit with our games. As a tier-1 game developer and publisher we have
high demands when it comes to our various monetization models. In-game
advertising is a solution that we think has great potential to become
even more important over the next years," says Sylvia Epaillard, Senior
Advertising Manager at Miniclip.
