ok users create account and email verification is sent to them, but problem sometimes sending email goes to their junk mail, is delayed or just isnt sent.

so can you give option to verify account by sms?

would it work?

so you send the verification link to their phone number using there own phone sms function?

Sure, I've used these guys in the past in my day job.

I'm not entirely too sure how jazzed I would be to give a game my phone number though. It'd depend on the type of game and what it was doing for me.

but do they work with GMS do they have an extension?
User account verification is always a server-side task, GMS has no place in this. If you implement Twilio, it's your account server that should be talking to it and implementing its API, not the end-user GMS app.
