Mobile gaming company Scopely scored $200 million. The company is home to several high-grossing titles, including Yahtzee with Buddies and Star Trek Fleet Command. They’ll use the money to expand their game portfolio and fund their strategy. [Built In LA]

The 5 biggest funding rounds in October for LA tech companies brought in over half a billion dollars. Relativity Space, which plans to 3D print a rocket and launch it into space by 2021, raised $140 million. But this was still less than Scopely’s $200 million round. [Built In LA]

Fintech startup PeerStreet gained $60 million in Series C funding. Its online marketplace serves both investors and professional real estate lenders, helping to level the playing field and allow average investors easier access to asset investment. [Built In LA]

Scratchpay fetched $65 million. The veterinary care financing company will use the debt and equity to invest in product development, advance their proprietary underwriting model and meet growing demands from pet owners. [PRNewswire]
