He said that digital setting is changing and people are now using sophisticated devices that have bigger screens. He noted that three years ago, players were using desktops while now there is a half split with number of mobile users growing at twice the pace of desktop users.
DoubleDown is shifting its marketing focus from Facebook, which has been its main marketing focus to more mobile friendly means such as sponsored posts and video.

This advertising has been successful in different sites such as BuzzFeed and Reuters. Essence is also advertising DoubleDown new products innovatively targeting more audience.
