Despite being totally free to download (and play), Kim Kardashian’s super addictive smartphone app “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” is raking in MILLIONS. $43.4 million, to be precise—and that’s just for the third quarter.
According to a Q314 earnings call report from the game’s developer, Glu Mobile (via Daily Dot), KK:H made more than 10 other Glu-owned apps combined. While not necessary to play, in-app purchases can be made to make advances in the game. Over 22.8 million people have downloaded it since it was released in June, and collectively, it’s been played for more than 5.7 billion minutes (though, whether the players are willing to admit that is another story).
Contributing to those billions of minutes is Kardashian’s own sister, Khloe—who was spotted leaving an event in London on Saturday with the app open on her phone. (From the looks of it, she’s still on the E-list.)
But even though all those figures may sound impressive, they’re way, way below the $200 million KK:H was estimated to earn by the year’s end. (We’re talking about a game that made $1.6 million in its first five days of existence). Still—the numbers aren’t too shabby: $43.4M equates to a WHOLE lot of K Stars.
