October 5, 2023

The company will also kick off Spin for a Cure later this month.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, DoubleDown Interactive has announced that it will donate $10,000 to the American Cancer Society (ACS).

Company CEO Keuk Kim shared the company’s history of altruism and said DoubleDown is eager to support the ACS.

He commented, “DoubleDown Interactive has long been committed to honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month with our charitable outreach.

“We are proud to support the American Cancer Society.”

ACS Senior Director of Corporate Relations Amanda Torfi explained the importance of further cancer research and commended DoubleDown for its continued support.

She said, “We know there is much more progress to be made to end breast cancer as we know it, for everyone.

“DoubleDown has been a great supporter of ACS and we are thrilled for their continued energy and support in helping us move even closer to a world without breast cancer.”

In addition to its donation, DoubleDown will hold a play-to-enter giveaway, called Spin for a Cure, on October 11. Players can participate on their mobile devices or laptop computers as a way to support the company’s charitable donation.

DoubleDown Interactive delivers its users a variety of gaming genres in multiple formats and publishes its games on both web-based and mobile platforms. Its DoubleDown Casino flagship title is well-known among its multimillion-player fanbase.

The company’s social casino portfolio includes a variety of modern and classic games.

In its most recent company quarterly financial report, the group posted $75.2m in revenue. Operating costs in the second quarter reached $47.7m during Q2, compared to $128.6m in expenses during the previous corresponding quarter. The company attributed the large difference partially to “lower cost of revenue, and decreased marketing and amortization expenses.”
