Candy Crush Generates How Much Money?Molly Thornberg
So, even if you aren’t playing Candy Crush and are on Facebook – you can tell by the amount of requests for lives that Candy Crush is addicting. Two years ago, it was Angry Birds. Last year it was Temple Run — and this year, it’s Candy Crush Saga. I have friends who swore they would never be addicted to games who can’t get enough of this app!
King, the app’s developer is needless to say – raking in the money. While the game maybe free to download, chances are if you are a regular player of the game you will make an in-app purchase. All of these in-app purchases people are making (confession, I’m a Candy Crush Addict) – are adding up. King has not released how much revenue Candy Crush has generated, so that leaves us asking….
How Much Money is Candy Crush Making King?
Think Gaming estimates that King is making $633,000 a DAY off of Candy Crush Saga. There are nearly 225k daily installs and over 6.6+ million playing regularly. And I’m not even sure if Think Gaming’s revenue estimate includes money earned from their online game or just from their app.
King announced back in May that it would stop in-app advertising. My guess is because it’s making people click off of the app and losing potential in-app customer sales.
$633k is a ton of money for an app to earn, and that’s what Candy Crush Saga is said to be earning a day. I know I help King with my fair share of contributions… what about you?
