The acquisition is expected to help Nazara make further inroads into the real-money gaming sector. The listed entity is also eyeing more acquisitions in the space to fill gaps in its product and distribution lineups.

While gamified learning and e-sports contribute around 81% to its revenue, with each bringing in upwards of Rs 2 bn, free-to-play mobile gaming is around 4% and real-money gaming is around 2% of the mix.

The company is looking at growing this category (real-money gaming) to Rs 1 bn over the next 12-18 months. With this acquisition, it expects the revenue mix to change, with real-money gaming contributing around 8-10% by the next 12-18 months.

Founded by serial entrepreneur Sreeram Reddy Vanga, OpenPlay operates a multi-game consumer gaming platform under the 'Classic Games' brand which hosts skill-based games.
