TechCrunch has reported that Microsoft has been in talks with Zupee to possibly lead a funding round of over $100 million. This with the aim to help the Indian cloud services company to expand to overseas markets.
To be clear, no agreement has been reached as of yet, and there is a very good possibility it will not come fruition at all. Neither party has made any public comments concerning the potential partnership.

The platform features casual board games such as ludo, carrom, snakes and ladders, etc. If the deal should go through, it could mean the integration of Microsoft's Azure cloud service with Zupee.
