The anticipated fourth edition of the annual Mobile Games Index, powered by adjoe and Statista, is now available.

The latest report offers a clear look into the current state of the mobile gaming sector, analyzing the past 12 months of the first-party data from 95 million app interactions across 27 million users. The MGI 2024 reveals what people choose to play on their mobile devices, filling the gap in industry knowledge and enabling game developers and user acquisition specialists to benchmark their products and ultimately target the right audiences with the right content.

Moving forward, it is up to the industry decision-makers to analyze the findings and promptly adapt to the newly-emerged engagement trends from MGI 2024, effectively engaging desired audiences.

A Peek at Shifting Engagement Trends to Capitalize on

Based on predictions from Statista, the overarching trend in the market is its robust growth with a forecasted expansion from $166.1 billion in 2024 to $227 billion by 2028.

Remarkably, Card games are expected to grow the most dramatically at 13.8% a year, nearly doubling their global revenue by 2028. Judging from the engagement charts of MGI 2024, the main driver of growth in this category is Solitaire games. The audience is showing a clear preference for Solitaire – these games hold 7 out of 10 positions in the top list of card games worldwide by time spent with titles from MobilityWare, Gimica, Scopely, and Playvalve, among others.

What allows the market to show revenue growth is the positive changes in global daily time spent. After the dip in engagement highlighted by the last year’s Index, adjoe confirms that average daily sessions have rebounded to 21.5 minutes from 17.3 minutes reported last year, marking a 22% increase.

The most engaged demographic of mobile gamers globally is the 40-49 age group, which has experienced a remarkable 33% increase in daily gaming time, now at 23 minutes daily. The strategies targeted at older demographics over the past 12 months can be deemed successful. However, this has led to a loss of focus on engaging Gen-Z, which has shown only modest growth in time spent.

The MGI also reveals that women are outpacing men in daily gaming time across most genres – as reported for the 4th edition in a row. This consistent and high performance makes the female audience a continuously safer bet when it comes to user targeting.

Another continued trend is the dominance of top publishers such as Supercell, Garena, King, and Playrix, while there’s still space to occupy for smaller publishers. For instance, ForgeGames tops the engagement charts with their game Special Forces Group 2 – capturing over 43 minutes of average daily engagement.

The insights continue in the MGI 2024, going granular to segment and visualize global mobile game engagement data from adjoe by genre, region, and demographic. At the same time, Statista’s extensive market research provides a macro-view of the current and future industry, offering figures for global downloads and revenues with forecasts extending to 2028.

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.
