9 Video Games That Make More Money In A Day Than You Ever Will

9. Clash Of Clans

Supercell

Daily Revenue: $1.5 million (as of 2015)

One of the most prolific apps in the history of mobile gaming, Clash of Clans completely reframed the way companies look at digital revenue streams.

You can 'thank' the likes of Farmville for, ahem, planting the seed, but it was Clash of Clans that had far greater reach than being a browser-embedded game. As such, Supercell employed a quick - and optional - microtransaction model behind its various gems, resources and meter-burns, meaning if you want to expedite the process behind base-building or amassing a larger array of assets for the next attack, well, why not drop a note or two?

Spread that model out across millions of users, and even if each one contributes just fractions of a full currency, together it's resulted in Clash of Clans grossing over 1.5 million dollars every day.
