Clash of Clans' developer earns almost $900 million in revenue in 2013
The Finnish company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) for 2013 have skyrocketed to $464 million – nine times more in comparison with 2012's EBITDA of $51 million. It is important to say that the game studio has released only two games as of today - Clash of Clans and Hay Day.
Supercell also revealed that it is about to officially launch Boom Beach, its third mobile game, sometime in March. The game is currently in its soft-testing period in some regions. Boom Beach's gameplay is similar to Clash of Clans as players will have to invade various fortified beaches and assault their defenses.

I believe it. One month ago, a friend introduced me to Castle Age HD on iOS and I've spent almost $260 on in-app purchases so far. The game is addictive. This is the first and last MMO I will play. It's hard to control myself and not get tempted by the $19.99 promo packs.
The funny thing is that prior to Castle Age, I spent less than $20 in in-app purchases for the 2.5 years I've own Apple products.
The bad thing is a Target is running a promo this week for 10% off iTune cards plus the 5% red card discount for a combined 14.5% savings and I couldn't help myself and bought $125 -- $100 for me and $25 for a friend -- to load up our iTune accounts. I really need to leave my red card at home.
I am also trying set up a slush fund to load up on iTune cards when they go on deep discount like 20% to 30% off during Black Friday.

Have you checked into buy them off eBay? There are a lot of sites that also sell unwanted gift cards discounted.

More power to them! Clash is a great mobile game, and you can play completely free with no loss of entertainment value. I haven't spent a cent on it (yet) but it's been a grand ol' time. They're one of the few developers that have gotten the 'free-to-play' tactic right.
