Tripling Premium Payouts

Hey developers -

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has been incredibly disruptive and challenging for people across our community. Many of you have told us that you develop on Roblox part-time, and work hard to financially support yourself through other means.

In an effort to help you through this time of difficulty, and to express our appreciation for your efforts to create awesome experiences for Roblox players, we are tripling the amount of payouts available through Premium Payouts - effective starting yesterday, March 31st. We originally planned to increase Premium Payouts later in the year as engagement on our platform increased, but decided to increase them now to show our support for you during this turbulent period.

Stay safe and healthy!

Cheers,
The Roblox Team

Is this a linear scale (i.e. everyone gets 3x regardless of where you are on the curve) or is it skewed differently?

It would be nice if a higher Premium payout pool would mean that the curve skews with it rather than just being moved up, so that top games (who do not need to sustain off of the premium payouts) earn less than 3x more and smaller/niche/more engaging games earn more than 3x.

Can you also share more information on how Premium Payouts have affected game income in general?

Thank you very much for your generosity! It’s always heart-warming when Roblox responds in times of this hardship in order to get through them.

Does that mean we are immediately getting triple the usual amount, or that we’ll be feeling the full effects more and more through the 28 day window?

On a serious note, how will this matter at all for us, and what positive impact will this play on us, related to coronavirus? I just don’t see it

You’ll be getting 3x as much from Premium Payouts, starting in 28 days.

Note that payouts are daily, not monthly.

Will premium payouts before this announcement that have not been added be tripled? I have 5 pending Robux right now from premium payouts, just asking if these will be tripled.

Glad this update came out, I got 88 robux from my first payout, and my game gets around 1 player per day :laughing:

I have had around 4 or 5 Premium players join my game since the payout.

Current pending payouts won’t be tripled

Does this mean that the tripled payouts will only start happening in 28 days?

I’m just confused because of this:
