Could be earning $1 per DAU

DeNA's Rage of Bahamut estimated to be grossing $2.6 million a month
According to figures from Nikkei, the Android version of DeNA's Rage of Bahamut is grossing as much as $43,000 per day.

That's a figure excludiing revenues earned in Japan.

And, performing some additional back-of-the-envelope calculations, Tokyo-based gaming consultant Serkan Toto believes the game's worldwide monthly revenue across iOS and Android could be as much as $2.6 million.

DeNA recently dubbed its freemium card-battler "America's number one mobile app," when the title briefly occupied the top spot on both the iOS and Android top grossing charts.


In an interview with TechCrunch, ngmoco's Neil Young has previously pegged the typical revenue per daily actve user for a successful game at around 15-25c per day.
Rage of Bahamut, he boasted, is doing "4-5 times" that number.

On this basis, Toto speculates that Rage of Bahamut is probably earning around $1 each day for every DAU. And interestingly, the game seems to be bucking a trend wherein Android games see weaker monetisation rates compared to their iOS counterparts.
