Genshin Impact’s characters are at the heart of everything. New ones are released monthly, and each one has unique abilities that can help you when exploring the open world of Teyvat or taking on some of Genshin’s hardest challenges. They’re also just very charming, beautifully rendered, well voice-acted and typically have special story quests that dig into their backstory. Genshin Impact is a little like Pokémon—only instead of collecting cute creatures you’re building a crack-team of anime heroes. Genshin Impact’s characters are also how the game makes ridiculous amounts of money. Based on analysis of market intelligence website Sensor Tower, each time one is added to the game players collectively fork over around $12 million in the first day just to try and get it.

I say “try” because Genshin Impact is a gacha game that rewards new characters in what are basically limited-time lootboxes. Every month there’s a different Wish Banner that players can spend Primogems on in hopes of getting one of its new characters or an old one they missed. The odds aren’t in your favor: you only have a 0.6 percent chance of getting one of the ultra rare five-star characters (though there are some systems that guarantee you get one after so many tries). Primogems are easy to earn just by playing, and the lootboxes are dirt cheap. Even so, that doesn’t stop players from gambling real money on these Wish Banners too.
