Mobile games have become an even greater distraction to the public during the coronavirus lockdown, with the top five app store games in the United States producing nearly $10 million in daily revenue this month.
The top two most lucrative games—Roblox and Fortnite—account for more than half of that daily figure between them, with daily revenue soaring to $2.68 million and $2.34 million, respectively.
That’s according to research published by Jastra Ilic of, who cited figures via Statista. The research noted the top five U.S. mobile apps raked in a total $9.7 million in daily revenue in April.
The other three games to make up that number are Candy Crush Saga, Coin Master and PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds).
Per the report, Roblox Mobile was downloaded more than 290 million times in 2019, with 75 percent of those coming from Google Play users. However, it’s specified that 76 percent of the game’s revenue comes from those remaining Apple users, with iPhone and iPad players more likely to make in-app purchases.
Candy Crush and Coin Master produced almost identical daily revenue figures between $1.75 million and $1.8 million thus far in April, while PUBG rose to almost $1.4 million per day.
