About Us

Octro Inc. is one of the fastest growing mobile gaming studios in India with global offices in US, UK, Canada, Australia, Israel, and Ukraine. It was founded in 2006 by Saurabh Aggarwal, a Stanford alumnus.

Our objective is to create leisure options by incorporating the perfect blend of entertainment and skill. Octro is proud of bringing our age-old beloved Indian card-based games (like Rummy, TeenPatti etc.) to a seamless digital format and that’s why our players love them.

We offer a diversified portfolio of free to play games like Teenpatti, IndianRummy, Poker, Tambola, Soccer Battles etc. on both Android & iOS platforms. As a testament to its growing success, Octro was backed by Peak XV Partners (Sequoia Capital) in 2014 and since then we have only grown from strength to strength.

Octro has built and owns the entire technology platform with no third-party servers, which enables our games to scale to massive numbers of users with great performance. Our game enhancements are driven by Proprietary Analytical Tools which is helping us stay ahead of the competition by offering better gameplay features. We focus on innovation and have introduced several of industry’s firsts such as Quick Join Tables, Slots on Tables, and a cutting-edge Hand Strength Meter.

Our latest acquisition of DGN Games has helped strengthen our games portfolio with popular slots titles like Lucky Time Slots & Old Vegas Slots.

Our Founder and CEO

Saurabh Aggarwal, Founder & CEO

Saurabh Aggarwal

Saurabh Aggarwal is a serial entrepreneur & currently founder CEO of Octro, Inc., one of India’s largest mobile gaming companies.

He started his entrepreneurial journey way back in 2002 by establishing PDAapps. PDAapps initially develop small utilities apps to fill the existing gaps in smartphones. In 2003, he launched VeriChat - the world’s first mobile instant messaging app for smartphones. He sold PDAapps to Intellisync which further got acquired by Nokia. In 2006, Saurabh decided to move on from the company which led to the foundation of Octro....

Octro started working on OctroTalk - a VoIP enabled Instant Messaging Client. However, based on consumer and business insights Saurabh realised that most utility apps had become free, and that direct to consumer gaming apps were the only ones making money. In 2012, he pivoted into online gaming with the launch of Teen Patti by Octro and there has been no looking back ever since.

He gets a thrill out of building technology that touches a broad spectrum of people. Seeing his products being used and loved by the common man drives him to widen his goals and achieve them.
