Young males most likely to spend on Angry Birds

New study shows males 18 - 24 most likely to convert from free to paid version of Rovio game

A new study shows that males between the ages of 18 and 24 are the demographic most likely to pay for the full version of Angry Birds.

Overall men are 35 per cent more likely to pay for the game after downloading the free version, according to the study by AYTM.

That same group is 76 per cent more likely to buy the game than a female over the age of 25.

The 18 to 24 age group, male and female, is also 33 per cent more likely to purchase the game than anyone over the age of 25.
