    Spill Group, one of our sponsors, has just announced that they have acquired the domain Games.co.uk. They already owned Juegos.com, Jeux.fr, GamesGames.com, Spelletjes.nl and Gioco.it so this is a nice addition to their portfolio as they are planning to expand internationally quick and aggressively. Spill Group has been growing steady since 2005 and are currently serving 55 million unique visitors per month who play more than 1,5 billion games.

    Spill Group has its headquarters in The Netherlands and operates over 30 game portals in 17 countries worldwide. We are planning to do a video interview with them soon to talk about their strategy and about how it feels to conquer the world out of the Netherlands and how much they paid for Games.co.uk.

    Congratulations with the acquisition, dear sponsor, but please save some money to continue sponsoring us!
