Perks provides high-performing creators with the ability to monetize their games and get paid through buyback of their Earned Credits! Creators must be a member of the Perks Program in order to add monetization features to their games and be eligible for Earned Credit buyback.
In order to qualify for the Program, creators must have a minimum average of 50 DAU over the past 30 days for their game(s). Note that all of a creator’s games contribute to the average DAU for their account. What this means is that your average DAU can be based on one game or many games, as long as your total average DAU meets or exceeds the minimum.
For tips on promoting your game to drive up your DAU, check out this great video:
Additionally, creators must also meet the following criteria:
- The account is at least 30 days old
- In good standing (no significant suspensions, bans, etc.)
- Have logged in to Core within the past 90 days
- Provide Manticore and Tipalti with identification and tax information
I've Met the Qualifications - Now What?
Once you have met the qualifications for Perks, your account will automatically become eligible for participation. Soon after qualifying, creators will receive an email notification, as well as the Enroll Now button on the Perks Program page, will be enabled for users to click on.
Please note that creators are not required to join the Perks Program once they have met the qualifications and are welcome to continue creating and playing on the platform should they not wish to participate in Perks.

Earned Credit Buyback
Perks creators are the only ones who have the ability to implement Perks in their game(s). Players then spend their Core Credits purchased from the Core Shop to buy these Perks from the creator in-game.
The Core Credits earned by the Perks’ creator become "Earned Credits" and are eligible for buyback for real (fiat) currency by Manticore Games. Core Credits acquired by other means (for instance, through purchase or as a gift or bonus) are not earned and therefore are not eligible for buyback.
To view your Earned Credits balance, you must navigate to the Perks Program page (if enrolled in Perks):
Keep in mind that only Earned Credits are eligible for buyback from Manticore Games.
