Candy Crush Saga keeps sweet lead over this week’s fastest growing Facebook games by DAU’s Candy Crush Saga is continuing to leave other Facebook games in its confectionary dust, taking the top spot on this week’s list of fastest-growing Facebook games by daily active users thanks to a 53 percent gain of 380,000 DAU.

Electronic Arts had three games close behind Candy Crush Saga. Lucky Gem Casino took the No. 2 spot courtesy of its 320,000 DAU increase, a 320 percent gain. Lucky Gem Casino has been holding steady at around a million DAU for the past month but it’s seen a major traffic boost over the past few days, probably due to the new Monopoly-themed minigame that was added last week. Solitaire Blitz was up by 42 percent with a 260,000 DAU increase. Zuma Blitz jumped 48 percent with 240,000 DAU.

Disney Playdom’s Marvel: Avengers Alliance continues to benefit from the ongoing marketing campaign that surrounds the upcoming Avengers film, up by 100,000 DAU for a 5 percent gain. With five major hits (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America) leading up to this movie, polls are showing The Avengers as one of the most anticipated movies of the summer. With less than two weeks before the movie comes out, publicity for The Avengers is at an all-time high, and Marvel: Avengers Alliance is reaping the benefit.

The only other game on the list with a gain greater than 20 percent was 50 Cubes’s Fashion Designer, which gained 40,000 DAU for an increase of 40 percent.
