You want to learn how to make lots of money from mobile games? Well you’re not the only one. The mobile gaming market is now huge, more and more people are playing mobile games. A hugely popular mobile game is Raid: Shadow Legends. It generates 100’s of thousands a month in revenue due to micro transactions within the app. The mobile gaming market is probably the best market for any start up developer to delve into. Because of its rapid growth and large potential there is so much opportunity in this market.

Micro-Transactions Are The Key To A Good Income

Mobile App developers need to design their apps with micro-transactions in mind. A few years ago this was the cause of a lot of frustration among the gaming community, but now micro-transactions are a tolerated part of gaming now a days. People will always pay to stand out or have an advantage. This is your opportunity to seize that and make money from these people.

The best form of micro-transactions is in the form of a premium currency and an ‘energy’ system. If you can kinda charge people who want to play the game for very large periods of time, you will make more money. Alot of games have energy or similar systems that you can buy with premium currencies. The game makes it ‘fair’ to ‘free to play’ players by making these currencies available to them as rewards for hard quests or playtime.

Make your game addictive

You’re trying to go straight for those dopamine receptors. This is the key to make lots of money from mobile games. Fill your game with all kinds of quests and achievements in order to get people hooked. This sort of system works extremely well. As long as people are ‘leveling up’ and completely quests they will always keep coming back. A perfect way to keep people returning to your mobile game is with daily, weekly and monthly quests. This is in fact what all companies are doing. Not just Video Games companies but social media companies make alot of money by getting people addicted to their service. It’s the unspoken rule to making money with a ‘free’ product.

Another great way to get people returning to your mobile game is with a daily login reward system, these will get people to return to your game at the promise of a big reward for playing the game for a long period of time. Now with the emergence of “Battle Passes” or a “Season” you can now make more money each ‘season’. This is becoming more and more accepted in games as big companies are adopting this. You basically offer your users more content by limiting it to ‘tiers’ or ‘levels. Your Battle Pass/Season can include a premium and/or a free tier. The premium tier is essential if you want to earn money from your game. If your game is a free to play game then the option of adding a Battle Pass/Season is more tolerated.

Add Cosmetic Items To Make More Money

Cosmetic items are basically common in every game now. So that’s why you should add them to yours. With your premium currency, charge players in order to customize elements of the game. This works best if your game has a character for the player to customize. But you need to be very creative. Players aren’t going to customize things they don’t care too much about so you need to be very careful about what things you are trying to sell. ‘Skins’ for characters and weapons is a great option for most games but you will have to decide what’s best for your game.
