Company Details

Update

Bigpoint.com is the biggest game portal in Germany and is among the top 3 gaming portals worldwide.

The company develops and operates browser games – and as a publisher, content provider and developer, we set new standards with each game in terms of technology, gameplay and entertainment fun.

In addition to high quality, Bigpoint offers a successful business model: "free use voluntary payment". The basically free use of the game allows players of all ages and income levels to have high-class fun. In the course of the game, the player can purchase virtual goods or get a Premium subscription in order to use additional game features.

As a developer, we have set high quality standards“ and as a publisher, we promote online games which meet these standards. With this recipe for success, Bigpoint.com has become the top destination for the best online games; from casual games to complex, long-term multiplayer games.

Founded in 2002, Bigpoint is located in Hamburg, Berlin, San Francisco and Malta and has currently more than 500 employees. GMT and Peacock Equity, NBC Universal™ capital fund, bought a majority share of Bigpoint in June 2008. Bigpoint was honored for its success with the Red Herring 100 Europe, Eco Internet Award 2009 (best content provider), the Ruban dâ™Honneur from the European Business Awards 2009 and the OnlineStar awards as the most popular website in Germany.
