How It Started
A consumer’s life is bombarded with micro-moments where he turns into a device whenever needed (for example, making payments, planning with friends and so on). Mohit, a specialist in mobile computing from his Btech and Master’s days, realized this growing consumer trend early on and so has built Adda52 on the backbone of award-winning cross-platform technology-based App development for poker. The app, to date, has been downloaded and used by millions in the country. Being a gamer himself, Mohit understands various consumers’ needs and their different playing styles; therefore, he has enabled Adda52 as a game that caters to a diverse audience.
The Lesser Known Side Of Mohit
When he is not dabbling in sports and solving math puzzles, Mohit loves to unwind by playing with his 8-year-old son. He believes mind games and sports are important in the overall development of personality and that they train the mind to succeed in an ever-changing world.
