    Hi Admin,

    The monetization ideas look great.
    But #3. Selling Extra Lives won’t be possible because Apple does not allow it.
    As per Apple guidelines –
    “5.3.3 Apps may not use in-app purchase to purchase credit or currency for use in conjunction with real money gaming of any kind, and may not enable people to purchase lottery or raffle tickets or initiate fund transfers in the app.”
