Quotes from Cameron and Matej: 

“It’s always a tough job to run a cross promotion, other from a valuation stand point or just from a point of talking to the game team.

You can cross promote players across different games and can be successful. It’s about trying to identify user segments and trying to find sweet spots where they might churn.

I was always a big fan of cross promotion, it’s been thought to evolve it properly.”
