According to game developer King, Candy Crush Saga has been installed over half a billion times – as in a 5 with 8 zeros. No word on how many millions have destroyed their devices because of level 65.

Really really love it, love it, hate it, or really really hate it, there’s no denying its popularity.

“The past year has been one of the most exciting times for King since Candy Crush Saga launched on mobile,” says Tommy Palm, Games Guru at King. “The incredible milestone of more than half a billion downloads of the game, as well as the continued enthusiasm from our community, really delights the entire King team. Fans can look forward to even more exciting new Candy Crush Saga content over the coming months, including an exciting new twist to the game.”

With just over 53 million fans, Candy Crush Saga is liked by 1 in 23 Facebook users. King has also revealed that more than 150 billions individual games have been played to date.

As part of their 1-year anniversary on mobile devices, Candy Crush Saga is holding a giveaway.

King also promises new updates and in-game treats over the coming weeks in celebration of the milestone.
