The amount accounts for 29 per cent of the total revenue in the global mobile gaming market during the period, the firm said.

In 2020, the total sales revenue of the top 30 mobile gaming giants increased 45 per cent year on year, and in contrast, the total payment of mobile gamers in App Store and Google Play only grew 27.8 per cent year on year, reports Xinhua news agency.
