Reading Time: 2 minutes

What do leaders from Whatsapp, Playrix, Nekki, Aptoide, Dashdash and Unbabel have in common? They recently invested in Replai, a Portuguese startup that uses artificial intelligence to create short-videos in real time and increase the value of gaming audiences. The $1.3M seed round led by Bright Pixel, alongside Ideias Glaciares, Clever Advertising and other c-level business angels from the mentioned companies will be assigned to business development, recruitment and international expansion, with the UK and the US as priorities.

Founded in 2019 by João Costa and Francisco Pacheco, both with relevant backgrounds in mobile gaming and monetization, Replai is an AI-based pioneering platform that automates the creation of short-videos and optimizes them for different target audiences, improving sponsorship and advertising deals for the content owner. With short-videos as a rising trend in the digital sphere and already one of the most popular formats amongst Gen-Z, Replai identified an untapped opportunity in the market, since video editing at scale requires many hours and resulting content yields uncertain returns. Aiming to fill this gap, the Portuguese startup relies on advanced artificial intelligence algorithms that analyze longer videos, extract almost instantly the main highlights adapted to preferences of different users and predict their revenue potential.

Replai’s solution automatically puts together a set of highlights from any gaming livestream, creating custom-made clips for each social network to maximize audiences and generate revenue for sponsors and advertisers. “This round allows us, above all, to gather a panel of experts in gaming and technology that will help us take the next step growth-wise as soon as possible”, say João Costa and Francisco Pacheco, founders of Replai.

For Bright Pixel, who led this debut round, the investment reflects a reinforcement of its positioning on emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, and poses as evidence of the remarkable entrepreneurial ecosystem in Portugal. The Portuguese startup has a team of 10 employees and is as advisors counts on people who are part of well-known companies worldwide such as EA Sports, Microsoft and WhatsApp.

“Replai stands out for their AI technology which enables automatic creation and distribution of short videos, this being a transversal need to any area that uses video as a communication method. Besides the innovative solution, Replai is founded by two young entrepreneurs with a proved record of user acquisition, strong technical know-how and the ambition to grow the business globally. This combination of factors was decisive and provides us confidence in consolidating Replai’s success” explains Benjamin Júnior, co-founder and a member of the investment team at Bright Pixel.

Alexander Lubchenko, CMO at Nekki, mentions that “Replai is providing a way to improve the value of gaming and esports as a mainstream entertainment platform and allows promoters, broadcasters and communities to grow. Their use of AI ensures scalability by solving a lot of pain points when using livestreams and video, while allowing content creation instantly at scale. I’m excited to partner with them on this journey.”

“I’m really excited to be part of the Replai journey. Their AI developed solution will massively accelerate distribution and monetisation of gaming and esports streaming and greatly move the industry forward. I feel Replai’s impact will start to be felt very soon – watch this space!” says Wolfgang Allisat, Chief Revenue Officer at Unbabel.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

For every mobile games enjoyer, this a perfect game – Swipe, an atypical casino game developed by Expanse Studios, young and aspiring casino studio, comes with very simple rules. It will appeal to all players who like unconventional games, with a touch of adrenaline, but lots and lots of fun!

The goal of the game is to make a perfect combination of numbers that will correspond to randomly selected digits of the game – the closer you get to it, the more money you win! The payout ratios are from 1 all the way up to 25,000! The coefficient grows with a larger number of matching numbers, of course, and reaches its maximum if you hit all the digits of a randomly selected number.

Win a Progressive Jackpot!

When you open Swipe, you will notice two windows with six numbers each. The first contains a RNG number and the second is reserved for the player who, dragging from top to bottom, puts together their combination, matching the first combination as much as possible.

If you match five digits, your bet is multiplied by 1,000, and if you hit all six numbers, the payout is multiplied by 25,000! The game is quite dynamic, the outcome is known after only a few seconds – ideal for fast game fans.

All this is worthless without a jackpot, is it? Swipe is the home of a progressive jackpot, the value of which grows with each try – if you are not lucky enough to put together the perfect combination, you may be lucky with the jackpot. All you need is perseverance, place your bets on lucky combinations of numbers and the win must come.

Exclusive bonuses are an unavoidable thing that adorns Swipe, because you will rarely have the opportunity to meet a game that offers you a payout 25,000 more than the stakes!

Enjoy this mobile game, combine the numbers and be the next winner!
