Lucky Buddies maker Everybody Games has raised $15m in a Series A round led by Makers Fund, with participation from Key1 Capital.
The Tel Aviv, Israel-based studio was co-founded by Adi Dagan and Yair Panet, both veterans of the casino/poker/slots gaming world. Its first non-casino game Lucky Buddies has earned just over $6m to date from 3.7m downloads, according to Appmagic data.
Lucky Buddies has earned Everybuddy over $500k per month since April 2022. Its revenue peak to date was in July 2022, when it earned $737k. It pulled in $539k last month, according to Appmagic.
“We are extremely proud of our ability to grow and scale rapidly despite today’s challenging financial environment,” said Everybuddy co-founder and CEO Adi Dagan. “Having Makers Fund and Key1 Capital join our support system is a huge vote of confidence in our team, and in our ability to continue establishing Lucky Buddies as one of the industry’s leading games,”
Makers Fund’s Curtis Urbanowicz added: “Adi, Yair, Boaz and the Everybuddy Games team have quickly built up the success of Lucky Buddies in an evolving mobile games market. The RPG and social layers create a lot of room for innovation and are drawing new players into the genre. We’re thrilled to be a part of their journey.”
