Every week, Gamasutra rounds up the top-grossing Android gaming applications, as current that day at Google Play. This week's U.S. revenue charts see Zynga Poker and Drag Racing: Bike Edition leading today's rankings, as Rage of Bahamut and Defender II also report top earnings. These charts allow end users to see who is making the most money on Google Play that day. It differs significantly from the Top Paid Games chart, which is ranked by sales, and therefore is dominated by lower-priced titles that sell more copies. Data comes courtesy of Google's public sales information. All titles in Google Play's "Games" category are considered in chart rankings. This week's top-grossing Android titles are: 1. Zynga Poker (Zynga - Free) 2. Drag Racing: Bike Edition (Creative Mobile - Free) 3. Live Holdem Poker Pro (Dragonplay - Free) 4. Rage of Bahamut (Mobage - Free) 5. Draw Something (Zynga - $0.99) 6. Defender II (DroidHen - Free) 7. Temple Run (Imangi - Free) 8. Tap Fish (Gameview Studios - Free) 9. Slot City: Slot Machines (Dragonplay - Free) 10. Tiny Village (TinyCo - Free) Creative Mobile's social racing franchise spinoff Drag Racing: Bike Edition reports impressive microtransaction sales in its premiere week, challenging reigning sales leader Zynga Poker for Google Play's top chart spot. Mobage's multiplayer trading card game Rage of Bahamut earns fourth place in today's results, meanwhile, as Draw Something falls to fifth after placing second last week.
