Roblox Corp. shares surged 20% on Monday, their biggest one-day jump since November, after the video game platform forecast a significant jump in September bookings as users spent more time on its games. 

Bookings are expected to be between $212 million and $219 million, up as much as 15% from a year earlier, the San Mateo, California-based company said. That figure includes revenue, deferred revenue and other adjustments, and defied a stronger US dollar that dampened results from outside the country.
