Nour Khrais is also the founding board member and Chairman of Jordan Gaming Task Force, an open and independent coalition of Jordan’s premier gaming companies. Sharing his experience on monetizing his mobile games, Nour says, “The Vserv AppWrapper has been instrumental in our efforts and changed how we looked at monetization. It allowed us to ad enable our games rapidly and give them away for free to our customers, and yet grow our revenues.”
