Challenges 

As a highly experienced and mature social casino publisher globally, running user acquisition across many different paid channels is challenging to say the least. The ability to drive continued performance and scale are top of mind as they execute campaigns. Murka believes that user acquisition should only require minimal oversight managed by a lean and effective user acquisition team.

Solution

In collaboration with Murka, it was clear that the solution to their challenges had to include automation and programmatic buying capabilities. Working hand-in-hand with Murka, the Chartboost team helped set up campaigns targeting tier 1 English-speaking countries.

Using the Chartboost DSP, our algorithms applied custom predictive behavioral models to surface new users to drive greater performance. The DSP calculated the likelihood of an install and the predicted value of each user and only targeted those who would provide Murka with the highest ROI.

To maximize the capabilities of our DSP’s creative engine Murka provided a variety of creatives, allowing our platform to experiment and optimize towards the best performing creatives while measuring the impact of each user. This approach ensures that Murka is constantly showing the right types of creatives that garner the highest return.
