Just how many people play Candy Crush? Over 500 million... yes, half a billion people are playing Candy Crush, a mind-blowing number. Then we have an upcoming IPO that will reportedly hit soon from developer King.

With those 500 million users, how many games of Candy Crush have been played? A massive 150 billion individual games to date - just mammoth numbers. King sees over 1 billion gameplays daily, which is gigantic for a game that has been out for a year - and because of this - King is celebrating Candy Crush's first birthday.

 

Rewind back to February, and King was seeing 9 billion gameplays per month across all of its titles, including games like Bubble Witch Saga and Pet Rescue. So putting things into perspective, King has moved from 9 billion gameplays per month across all its titles, to 1 billion gameplays daily of Candy Crush alone.
