Freemium – it’s a hybrid of free and paid and it’s all the rage in mobile gaming. Try the game for free, play for free, but if you really like it, pay a few dollars for more levels, more detail or a virtual donkey. Who wouldn’t want a virtual donkey? Actually, a lot of people will pass on that offer but it doesn’t matter.
According to stats from Flurry, Freemium games generate more revenue than straight-on paid games and it does it in a surprising way. As you can see from the chart below, only 13% of consumers were responsible for more than 50% the revenue.
