    Have you ever overspent on microtransactions for a game on your phone?

    So how much money have you spent on microtransactions?  There was a kid that spent over 37,000 euros on an in-app game recently.  I have't spent any, thank goodness.  But have you?

    I don't really spend money on games, or even play that many on my phone. I happily play for free, and put up with advertising.

    When I got my kindle fire, they gave me 500 free 'coins' to spend on apps. I used about 100 of them to purchase the 'full' copy of angry birds star wars. I discovered, after downloading it, that it had no additional content (or lack of ads) over the free version. I regretted that purchase, which is about the extent of what I've wasted on micro-transactions.

    I spent about $50 on League of Legends over the 3 years that I played the game. I didn't mind doing it because you get permanent things like skins and extra rune pages that you can use everyday that you play the game.

    I'm very much against spending money on one time bonuses through micro-transactions that you can only use once.

    I used to spend a lot of money on a game called Wrath of Heroes (which I did guides for last year), where I could buy additional characters to play as. I think they were about £8 a pop and they came out fortnightly, so I spent about £16 a month on them to try them and write about. The other time I spent a lot on "micro"transactions was in World of Warcraft, where every time a new mount or pet came out I purchased it immediately.... only to never use it after a week.

    But when it comes to phones, I don't have a smartphone any more so I can't spend my money on cowclickers and whatnot. Good job too because I'd probably go bust in world record times.
