lets say at the 300 employees , 40 hours per week , and a salary of say 40$ an hour that is 480k per week , 4 weeks brings it to 1.92m per month

 

say server costs are hell 1m per month that is 2.92m per month in just overhead. Jagex does NO paid advertising so no costs there. And lets just say according to the 1 previous post is correct that there are 2m paid accounts per month at 10m per month ... that is still 7 MILLION profit. and if his statement of it being say 1m paid account per month , 2 million per month profit. Now I am no genius here , and nor do I know if any of the figures is correct BUT ... DAYAM

 

 

 

Server costs are probably more than that, and don't forget that Andrew isn't the only one behind this, Paul is also involved and probably gets quite a large share of it.

 

 

 

Their employees make way less than 40$ an hour.

 

 

 

They make about 10 pounds an hour (20K a year), on average, which translates to a bit less than 20 bucks an hour.

 

 

 

ya if all their employees made 40$ an hour....i would be moving to england and signing up for a job there :D. thats almost 80k a year

He's only 29??? Jeez, I feel like I've failed with my life.

 

 

 

my g/f birthday is today , 12-3-1978 , and she is 29 ... so... ...

 

 

 

So, wait... Andrew Gower is really Andrea Gower, and (s)he's your girlfriend? I'm so confused... or did I read too much into that?

 

Err...no. I'm quite sure that Andrew Gower is a male.

 

Err...Dravenstormn? You're an adult? Pardon me for asking, but I rarely see adults playing RuneScape.

Heh, you must not be looking very hard.

 

 

 

Happy Birthday Andrew! \'

To Mayjest: He's saying his girlfriend has the same birthday as Andrew Gower, basically.

 

 

 

To Iam: There are a lot of adults who play RuneScape, it's just that most people don't tell their age until they've known the other person for a while.

 

 

 

To Mr. Gower: Happy birthday!! :thumbsup:

well if i remember correctly, he was among the richest young adults of England, so it would put him below 30, and i also remember reading it was his birthday in 01 or 02

 

 

 

with the 9 million people who play this game , say only 7 million actually pay the 5$ premium ... I would say he is damn rich ... do the math ... PER MONTH

 

and you know damn well his monthly expenses aren't even close to that.

 

 

 

+ They pay the incomes of hundreds of employees + server costs etc. He's still a millionaire but its not like he's got his own private Pool filled with $100 bills.

 

 

 

He would use pound coins instead :P

Anyway Happy B'day Andrew, I'm sure you're currently crawling the Rs fansites at the present moment searching for any Birthday threads you might find on yourself. :uhh:

 

 

 

Maybe not in the past, but now? They can definitely swim in $100's and use them as toilet paper without regrets. :lol:

 

 

 

Paul and Andrew's net worth was some $60 million US dollars when combined in 2006, it's some $100M+ this year. I was watching BBC and they had a featuring program with the youngest rich people in the UK, it listed the Jagex creators Andrew and Paul Gower (sadly no pictures or interviews were included) as some 700th richest in Britain.

 

 

 

To think.. These guys were in 2001 average Cambridge uni students launching a leisure game from their campus bedroom.. :P
