We continue to move slowly and deliberately, making decisions based on the data and ensuring the reliability of that information through purposeful and repeated trial and error as we ramp up our efforts moving into 2024.  We spent the last two years building an underlying ecosystem that can provide us a real advantage in our direct to consumer push and we feel more strongly than ever that this will begin to deliver real financial benefits in 2024 and beyond. Perhaps most gratifying is that users seem to love Q GamesMela!”

The positive impact of the app's reward system is clearly shown in the appreciative comments from Ravindra Kumar, who recently won a pressure cooker through his gameplay. Thus, highlighting a key aspect of user engagement on the platform.
