  • A new study by Ebuyer reveals how much gaming properties would cost if you were to purchase them in real life
  • Maze Bank Tower in GTA V would be the most expensive to buy at £2,880,000.00
  • One of the most affordable properties to purchase is Raffia Quinta from Oasis Springs at £28,152.19

Whether you’re using your Simoleons to buy your Sims a new villa, or you’re forking out your bells to Tom Nook in Animal Crossing to upgrade your pad, in-game property prices can be costly. But, have you ever wondered how much they would set you back if you were able to purchase them in real life?

It’s no secret that gaming has become more popular than ever, especially over the last year during the lockdowns. In fact, in 2020 UK consumers spent nearly £2.4 billion on digital consoles and games, up from £1.98 billion the previous year1.

If you’ve got your eye on a fantasy property, Ebuyer has analysed* the gaming property market to determine how much certain properties would cost if you were to buy them here and now (technically speaking). To convert the fictional property prices into GBP, food prices were analysed to estimate the exchange rate due to food being prevalent in all games.

According to the findings, the ten most expensive gaming properties are as follows:

Topping the property rich list is Maze Bank Tower in GTA V. The property in the game is located in Pillbox Hill, Downtown Los Santos, and gamers can purchase the tower from San Andreas’ favourite real estate company, Dynasty 8. And whilst it’ll set you back $4,000,000 in-game, if you could purchase it today in real life, it would cost £2,880,000.00… if only!

Taking the second spot is FFXIV. There are five different houses to purchase in the game, and they vary in price. The most expensive is the large plot, with the large mansion equipped with three floors, and a much bigger garden than the other plots. Costing 37,920,000 Gils in-game, it would set you back £407,640.00 in real life.

But if you’re on a strict budget, the most affordable property of them all is Raffia Quinta. Whilst Sims 4 may have first dropped back in 2014, if you’re an avid simmer, the pad from Oasis Springs would cost you only £28,152.19 to buy today… and if that was the case, we’d all own one! Another cheaper option is the small plot with the small cottage in FFXIV, costing £32,991.75.

Commenting on the research, Andy Roberts, E-Commerce Director of Ebuyer, says: “Often we spend so much time immersed in our gaming universes, there is a suspension of disbelief on the real-life costs of factors such as property and bills!

Our research gives food for thought on how much it would cost to live like our favourite characters in real-life. The results really are shocking!”

Television is an all-time massive communication medium, and the desire of becoming rich and famous watching participants on different shows has always been part of our culture.

And it’s not the first time casinos make the most of a TV game and its success… Fortune wheels, bingo machines… and now, Plinko!

More than four decades ago, in January 1983, Plinko was introduced in the world-known TV show “The price is right”, and the game is still part of the programme nowadays, being considered very often as the most famous pricing game of all times.

Being aware of the tremendous possibilities of this easy-to-play yet trepidant game, Spinmatic is launching a brand-new game category on its portfolio.

Plinko consists of a board full of blocking pegs in the form of a pyramid, with a certain number of winning spaces at the bottom. The aim of the game is to place the balls in the best winning spot to be awarded with the displayed prize.

With Spinmatic’s latest creation, Pinky Plinko, the company combines the classic excitement of plinko with a dash of colourful Asian vibes – giving a new look to the usual plinko game.

Set against an Asian-inspired backdrop, players place their bet from 0.1 to 80 and watch the ball zigzag down through a bunch of pins, building up the excitement with every bounce. They can choose their adventure with the Risk Level feature. Whether they’re feeling daring or prefer a safer path, Pinky Plinko lets them adjust the risk to match their betting style. For those who like a touch of strategy, the Hold & Drop feature will let them decide the exact moment to let the balls fall. A simple addition of control that will definitely engage players.

With its attractive features, gorgeous graphics and the thrill of big wins, it promises to be a hit with players looking for an entertaining and rewarding plinko game. Whether they’re a fan of traditional plinko or looking for something new to try, Pinky Plinko will provide them with an exciting challenge.
