Interstitial ads are full-screen advertisements. In Appodeal, they are divided into two types - static interstitial and video interstitial.

These types of ads are requested simultaneously during caching. If both of them filled an ad, the most expensive of the two will be shown.

Static interstitial - static full-screen banners.
Video interstitial - these are videos that the user can usually close 5 seconds after the start of viewing.


To show an interstitial ad, you need to call the following method:


Check If Ad Is Loaded

You can check whether or not an ad is loaded at a certain moment. This method returns a boolean value, representing the interstitial ad loading status.

Check Ad Loading Status

We recommend you always check whether an ad is available before trying to show it.


if(Appodeal.IsLoaded(AppodealAdType.Interstitial)) {


The callbacks are used to track different events in the lifecycle of an ad, e.g. when an ad was clicked on or closed. Follow the steps below to implement them:

Subscribe to the desired interstitial event using one of the options from this guide. (you can subscribe to any number of events you want)

AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnLoaded += (sender, args) => { };

You will find all existing interstitial events in the example below:

public void SomeMethod()
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnLoaded += OnInterstitialLoaded;
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnFailedToLoad += OnInterstitialFailedToLoad;
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnShown += OnInterstitialShown;
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnShowFailed += OnInterstitialShowFailed;
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnClosed += OnInterstitialClosed;
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnClicked += OnInterstitialClicked;
AppodealCallbacks.Interstitial.OnExpired += OnInterstitialExpired;

#region InterstitialAd Callbacks

// Called when interstitial was loaded (precache flag shows if the loaded ad is precache)
private void OnInterstitialLoaded(object sender, AdLoadedEventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial loaded");

// Called when interstitial failed to load
private void OnInterstitialFailedToLoad(object sender, EventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial failed to load");

// Called when interstitial was loaded, but cannot be shown (internal network errors, placement settings, etc.)
private void OnInterstitialShowFailed(object sender, EventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial show failed");

// Called when interstitial is shown
private void OnInterstitialShown(object sender, EventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial shown");

// Called when interstitial is closed
private void OnInterstitialClosed(object sender, EventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial closed");

// Called when interstitial is clicked
private void OnInterstitialClicked(object sender, EventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial clicked");

// Called when interstitial is expired and can not be shown
private void OnInterstitialExpired(object sender, EventArgs e)
Debug.Log("Interstitial expired");

Unity Main Thread

All callbacks are called on native main threads that do not match the main thread of the Unity. If you need to receive callbacks in the main Unity thread follow our Callback Usage Guide.

Manual Caching

If you need more control of interstitial ads loading use manual caching. Manual caching for Interstitial can be useful to improve display rate or decrease SDK loads when several ad types are cached.

  1. To disable automatic caching for interstitials, use the code below before the SDK initialization:
Appodeal.SetAutoCache(AppodealAdType.Interstitial, false);
  1. To cache Interstitial ad manually use the following method:


Appodeal SDK allows you to tag each impression with different placement. To use placements, you need to create placements in Appodeal Dashboard. Read more about placements.

To show an ad with placement, you have to call show method with specifying placement's name:

Appodeal.Show(AppodealShowStyle.Interstitial, "placementName");

If the loaded ad can’t be shown for a specific placement, nothing will be shown. If auto caching is enabled, sdk will start to cache another ad, which can affect display rate. To save the loaded ad for future use (for instance, for another placement) check if the ad can be shown before calling show method:

if(Appodeal.CanShow(AppodealAdType.Interstitial, "placementName")) {
Appodeal.Show(AppodealShowStyle.Interstitial, "placementName");

You can configure your impression logic for each placement.

If you have no placements, or call Appodeal.Show() method with a placement that does not exist, the impression will be tagged with default placement name and its settings will be applied.

Placement settings affect ONLY ad presentation, not loading or caching.

Get Predicted eCPM

This method returns expected eCPM for a currently cached advertisement. The amount is calculated based on historical data for the current ad unit.


Mute Video Ads

This method will take effect only on Android platform

You can mute video ads if calls are muted on the device. For muting you need to call the following method before initializing the SDK.
