Berlin-based skill games company GameDuell has secured over $17 million in Series B venture funding from Wellington Partners.

With a current user base of 10 million members in Germany, France and Spain, the company will use this funding to expand into the United States and other European countries.

The last funding round for GameDuell, which is headed up by a team of experienced Internet entrepreneurs (Kai Bolik, Michael Kalkowski and Boris Wasmuth), was in 2004.

The company’s skill-games include Mahjong, Pool, Solitaire and Sudoku and they are Germany’s third largest online advertiser with more than 200 media partnerships and 80 staff.
