6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The Casual Games Association recently released its 2007 report on the casual games industry. The report features a collection of statistics and other data that give a picture of the most popular casual titles and the gamers who play them. Solitaire, Tetris, and Bejewelled ranked among the most popular casual games.

A few statistics from the report:

- Casual games are a $2.25 billion a year industry.
- The casual game market is growing at 20% a year.
- Over 200 million people play casual games each month over the Internet.
- Men make up 48.3% of casual game players, women 51.7%. However, women account for 74% of paying casual game players.
- Casual gamers who pay for a subscription and/or are community users average 7 - 15 hours of online play a week.
- Heaviest play times are right after dinner from 7pm - 9pm and during lunch from 11am - 2pm.
- The majority of online portals feature catalogs of over 1,000 games and add between 75 to 300 new games to their catalogs each year.
- Casual games are usually played for a short period of time increments, from five minutes to 20 minutes -- though it's common for people to play one game after another for many hours.
