What does your company do and why is it unique?
Lucky Fish Games builds social casino games based on unique game mechanics (think “Candy Crash meets social casino games”). Our gaming platform focuses on casual casino games for social networks.

What are you most proud of in your company?
Three years ago we started with nothing more than an idea, and today we have established ourselves as one of the main companies in the the social casino games industry, with a dynamic and profitable operation, and large user base. I’m also super proud of my talented team who keeps pushing forward in a highly competitive market.

Who inspires you/who do you admire and why?
My biggest inspirations are my wife and 2 children. They’re also my main source of energy!

Which other companies do you admire and why?
Playtika and – for building successful online gaming businesses that boast millions of players. Both companies are good examples of how a small online gaming startup that operates mainly in Israel can become hugely successful. They now employ hundreds of people and are worth billions. Hopefully that’s exactly where LuckyFish is headed 🙂
