Google Adsense should be the number one choice when choosing an AD Network for your arcade website. They offer the highest rates (CPC) when it comes to the arcade niche. The average CPC rate you should expect from adsense in an arcade website should be between 8-14 cents, might seem low but its actually the highest you will find for the arcade niche. Adsense is run by google so there isn’t really nothing else to say 😀
