The two companies had partnered over a year ago to introduce a gaming section on MX Player, with the objective of further increasing engagement on the OTT app.

In the last financial year, gaming in India amassed $1.8 billion in revenue, making it a lucrative sector for internet companies. 

While smartphone games are typically installed as standalone apps, the Gamezop-MX Player partnership made use of HTML5 games that can be played within the MX Player app, just like videos. 

This made it easier for users to engage with games of their choices while removing the friction of installing separate apps for each.

Games on MX Player come with multiple layers of tournaments and rewards for winners, representing a deep integration rich with its state-of-the-art features. 

Several popular games from Gamezop’s catalogue, including Escape Run, Kingdom Fight, Tower Twist, Rocket Man, and Jimbo Jump, come on MX Player with these added features.

While Patna, Lucknow, Delhi, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad saw the highest traction on games within MX Player, Moradabad, Imphal, Siliguri, and Bardhaman also featured on the top 50 cities list.
