DragonVale World uses in-app purchases to generate revenue. The game is available to download for free, but the player can pay real money to purchase items to be used in-game.
Acquiring Treasure From In-App Purchases
- DragonCash (): The currency used to purchase eggs, habitats, decorations, islands and buildings.
- Gems (): The currency used to speed up breeding, hatching, building, and obstacle clearing. Gems can also be used to purchase dragons and upgrade habitats.
- Double XP Boost (): Double XP Boosts can be bought to double the experience earned for a limited time to further advance gameplay.
Acquiring Treasure During Gameplay
Dragoncash is earned in-game in many different ways. The player can collect dragoncash by tapping on a habitat, and then tapping the "Collect" icon on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. When a habitat has filled one third of its earnings cap, a small icon depicting a treasure chest will appear above it. At that point, the player can simply tap on the habitat to collect the dragoncash.
