Skillz, a company that adds eSports tournaments, league functions, prize pools and rankings to mobile games, has claimed that including eSports features can significantly boost revenues and the amount of time that players spend on an app.

The provider told GamesBeat this week that its developer partners have seen average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU) numbers of $0.92, eight times higher than the industry average of $0.11.

Skillz has also noted that players spend an average of 58 minutes a day playing on its competitive gaming platform, compared to the 33 minute casual mobile gaming industry average.
