In September, the game is said to have generated 3.86 million downloads which places it at 188th regarding games downloads on a global scale.

Playrix’s other title Gardenscape recently hit the $880 million milestone, which means that the games developer has made a cool $1.3 billion between the two games from in-app purchases.
