During the recent months almost all of us have been wondering how FI will get things back on track, not just in terms of growth but providing value to areas of the market that the removal of instant sell significantly devalued. We may not have initially realised it but enhanced IPD’s are the new deposit bonuses and it’s an absolute master stroke by FI. The promotion gives users enhanced returns for investing money into the market, stimulates the non-PB and money back holds and encourages a huge turnover in sells and buys through in game trading. Far more lucrative for FI then just dumping 10% cash into your account and far more exciting and potentially lucrative for users, win/win!
It’s for this exact reason that I sincerely doubt we will see traditional deposit bonuses return throughout the season, I believe it’s far more likely that we will see enhanced IPD’s return when the market needs stimulating or for major tournaments like Euro 2020.
The appeal of enhanced IPD’s should also be exceptional to attracting a wider range of gamblers/inventors, especially casuals. Imagine a traditional bet placing money on Manchester City or Liverpool to beat let say Aston Villa at 1/5. You win you get your stake back and 1/5th of that stake in winnings, you lose it’s all gone, simple as that. With the index during enhanced IPD’s you can now look at equivalent returns by lumping into a 50p player with the hope he scores a goal worth 10p of returns. Not only that but you’ve multiple attempts across a potential 30-day window, the chance of greater returns with goal/assist or clean sheet output and whatever level of success you intially have the option to hold that bet for a period of 3 years. I just see the upside as massive if the logic translates to a wider market.
Highlighting my own approach, I’ve invested about £1,200 into 1,300 shares, my logic is if each of those shares returns on average 10p in IDP’s I will have made just over 10% return (just like a deposit bonus). That’s also exclusive on any cap app or potential PB rewards.
FI can’t offer enhanced IPD’s on a regular, its 100% a loss leader promotion for them but is also 100% a better mechanism to bring excitement and confidence to the market then a deposit bonus. In this current promotion and with a new PB structure that’s a long way from reaching it value, for me, there has never been a better time to be active and trading on here, and I’m someone that made their first real investment on this platform around the last share split.
Happy trading all!
