Uutiset reports that Clan leaders at the hugely successful Finnish gaming firm Supercell have seen their pay packets grow dramatically since 2015. Six of Finland’s 10 biggest earners in 2015 work for studio as gamemakers eclipsed traditional industrials in terms of their earning power.

It’s no secret that top executives at moneymaking game companies earn well. Tax and earnings data released by the Finnish Tax Administration Tuesday in Finland’s annual orgy of rubber-necking show that clan chiefs at the country’s most successful game firm Supercell are among last year’s top income earners – and Supercellers have six of the ten largest pay packets.

Supercell founders Ilkka Paananen and Mikko Kodisoja both had generous payslips, earning 12.3 million and 10.7 million euros respectively. Meanwhile game designer Lasse Louhento posted a respectable 7.3 million euros in earnings in 2015. All saw their incomes rise substantially over 2015 figures to surpass even the top earners last year.

Last year Louhento claimed the honour of earning the highest taxable income in the country – at just over six million euros.

Other Supercell top executives also featured on 2015’s list of top earners – they included Jouni Utriainen (4.2 million euros), Visa Forsten (3.6 million euros) and Nicholas Derome (3.6 million euros).
