We launched Paytm First Games Ludo within a week of lockdown and the game has grown at a staggering pace. 4 lakh users play the game every day with 1 to 2 lakh new users joining the game everyday. With Ludo Lakphati, we aim to raise the stakes in the game and make it even more exciting for the players. ”
