Fueled by their passion for the online world and belief that the Internet would revolutionize the way people were gaming, entrepreneurs Peter Driessen and Bennie Eeftink acquired their first game site, spelletjes.nl, in 2004. What differentiated them from other gaming companies was their vision of instant-play free online games on a global network of targeted social-gaming platforms. Over the next few years, they expanded their portfolio of offerings, building gaming platforms for three target demographics in 15 languages, and opening new offices in China, Germany, and the UK.
