Those numbers are just for GooglePlay (Android) users. The Apple numbers are a little bigger. Don’t know what share of users play Windows version, but I’d guess that puts total monthly revenue of about $1 million or more.


How much is enough? If they are making 1 mil per month that's not enough?

I wish we would build a pot of gold for St. Patty Day, and afterward we could feed it gold coins like the fountain a then get gems back as a reward, could get anywhere from 5 to 10 each time let it be random,

Perhaps 1 mil for both plattforms..

But take a look at all King games (android):

Only my 2 Cents.. But i think, that there are other King games who are more worthy to keep alive.

Interesting that downloads are shown but not revenue for each game. If pb is in the top 20 of 50+ apps that might be promising

Another thing that made me think about this as well is that those of us who don't have the daily rewards beta have not gotten any offer to purchase the Griffin Cub. At least I have not, anyone?

And I agree, normally we would be due for another drafting table.

I asked about the Griffin cub and it was only offered to a select group of us and I personally think it stinks!

I don’t think anyone got an offer to buy the cub by itself.

In addition to players with the free daily reward beta, some others did get an offer to purchase the daily reward premium tier bundle. I got the offer a couple times.

Last time they offered the pet by itself, a lot of oeople complsined about paying the same price and not getting all the other rewards.

Which seems like a ton of money to me for a game that is already going and just needs some tweaking. Also I was thinking today about our older convo regarding “step child” relationship to King bc they acquired PB instead of creating from the ground up SO do you know BethM if after they acquired it, did Z2 still help with developing the new mills, levels and such bc if not King has done a great job with keeping very similar.....

Yes. When king bought Z2 they kept the same employees working on it, at least for a while.

King was in the habit of acquiring games, not building them themselves. Candy Crush was bought from someone else, it was not developed originally by King. FYI.
