Campaign Goals

Clipwire Games aimed to efficiently scale user acquisition for their title “Bingo Story”, aiming to acquire users with high retention rates as well as high conversion rates towards deposits and ROAS, as the title generates revenue from both ads and in-app purchases. 


Our in-house programmatic DSP is integrated with all major SSPs and is able to process more than 500,000 QPS of in-app inventory. We apply user-level targeting based on machine-learning algorithms, real time-request data and aggregated data from our DMP, to run effective UA and re-targeting campaigns. This infrastructure, designed to allow us to focus on user profiles, rather than just ad placements, allows us to help mobile game developers such as Clipwire, acquire the most relevant users for their games.

When we started running UA campaigns for Clipwire’s “Bingo Story”, on iOS and Android in July our initial approach was intent-based targeting – targeting users that showed direct interest in the Bingo genre. This approach derived early success both in generating high IPMs (installs per mille) and quickly meeting the defined ROAS KPIs.

This early success allowed us to expand and scale the campaigns quickly as our machine learning algorithms started targeting look-a-like users of the ones delivered so far from sub-genres and related genres, such as Mahjong, Solitare, and Social Casino.
