Our Story

It all began in 2016, when a small group of friends with a big dream had joined together in the hope of bringing their vision to life. 

 

They still didn’t know how that dream would materialize; they just knew they wanted to bring joy to millions of people worldwide with thrilling game experiences.

 

But in a sea of endless instant thrills, they aspired to be an island of innovation and real value.

 

So they came up with a unique “two-way street” model – where you don’t just pay-to-play like anywhere else, but you actually play-to-earn real-life rewards, while having a truly great time playing.

 

The company has since made it its expertise to turn the most beloved, cultural-cornerstone games into real money, skill-based gaming experiences. 

 

It didn’t take long before the games drew in a big and loyal community of players all across the globe. 

 

The dream is now bigger than ever, and the plans for the future have never been more exciting. 

 

Papaya Gaming is mainly based in Tel Aviv, Israel, but has employees and partners all around the world.
