Turkey (officially the Republic of Turkey, capital – Ankara) occupies a unique geographic position, located partly in Asia and partly in Europe. This nation-state, a successor of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, is teeming with cultural monuments from a number of eras while its coastline borders four different seas.
Turkey is considered an emerging nation. Although the country’s economy is primarily service-based, its IT sector has been undergoing rapid development, especially in recent years. It goes without saying that this also affects its gaming industry.
In fact, Turkey was specifically mentioned in the May Ironsource podcast on emerging markets. In fact, one would be hard-pressed to call the country’s gaming “emerging”—“emerged” would be much more accurate. The speed at which the audience is growing is decreasing, despite an increase in business activity.
There is currently an influx of gaming-related startups in the country, with the most active (and successful) being companies that produce hyper-casual content. Some of the major players include Alictus, Rollic, and Good Job Games. One reason for this increase in activity is easy access to the superb technical education available in Turkey.
According to a study conducted by GaminginTurkey, Turkish gamers are most active in the mornings and in the evenings. In the mornings, they (28% of active users) play on the way to work; in the evenings, they relax by playing at home (67% of all active users).
Bank cards are the most popular payment method for online purchases in Turkey. According to Worldometers this payment method accounts for 70% of purchases.
On average, a Turkish gamer has four games installed on his/her phone. On tablets, this number is doubled.
56% of Turkish gamers play while watching television, while 45% listen to music.
