Social competition among friends playing a same game is the best motor to selling premium features and bonuses. Admit it, seeing your friends performing better than you will make you consider any possible shortcut to beat them, right? With low costs premium (everything under a $1), Cnady Crush still managers to make an impressive $850,000 each day from its 7,7 million users!
