What do we do?

Incentive Games is a young, exciting and energetic company that specialises in helping its clients acquire, retain and monetise customers via web and mobile apps in the form of free and pay to play games. We use the science of gamification to make user engagement simple.


Although the company is small, we have ambitions to be a leading games provider and we have been gaining recognition nationally and abroad. We were the winners of Best Crowdfunded Business in the 2019 Sports Technology Awards and our CEO was the recipient of Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2019.


Our current clients are multi-national i-gaming companies based in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the USA, but we have plans to expand into non-igaming markets.
