Riches for Ruzzle: Nokia Growth Partners pumps $6 million into MAG Interactive

MAG Interactive, the developer behind the popular puzzle game Ruzzle, has received $6 million in a funding round led by Nokia Growth Partners.

The investment, which was revealed by MAG Interactive CEO David Hasselberg during the Slush 2013 start-up conference in Helsinki, will go some way to securing the future of a company that's looking for more success in the mobile gaming space.

A portfolio of success

"Bringing such an experienced investment group on board at this stage of our development allows us to create a portfolio of successful games, while maintaining the DNA of our company," explained Hasselberg

"We are looking forward to working with NGP to maximise the opportunities its investment brings."


Indeed, it seems that Nokia Growth Partners is prepared to put its money where its mouth is in order to help build large sustainable companies.

"NGP is looking for people that can build large sustainable companies and Daniel and the MAG team have demonstrated great potential with their first titles," explained Walter Masalin, Principal at Nokia Growth Partners.

"They are on track building the next major global gaming company from Scandinavia."
