Women Over 30 More Likely To Play Mobile Games [SURVEY]

Women over 30 are the most likely to be caught playing mobile games, with more than a quarter in the age bracket spending more than three hours per day playing one or more mobile games covered in a survey released last week by mobile game maker MocoSpace.

Overall, 21 percent of the survey’s 15,000 respondents spent an hour or more playing mobile games each day. But the report’s most surprising finding may be that 27 of percent of women over 30 spend three hours or more per day playing mobile games – double the rate for both men and females ages 12 to 29.

Also telling is that people are now almost as likely play games on mobile devices (21 percent) as they are on dedicated game consoles (24 percent), meaning mobile games are often played at home.

“The fact that people are gaming on their mobile phones at home, often sitting a few feet away from their controller, shows that mobile is capable of grabbing and holding their interest. This data makes it clear that mobile is a viable alternative to console and PC gaming,” Justin Siegel, CEO of MocoSpace, said in a statement.

The study also shows mobile games are more popular than console games with casual gamers who play games less than three hours per day.
