    Hey everyone ! 

    I have no idea if this issue/topic has already been adressed. 

    But wouldn't it be cool to be able to buy credits (that are important for equipment, ball, club set and many other things) that to the coins we earn during face to face matches in the different rooms ? 

    I would find it great. 

    Let me know what you think about this. 

    Cheers,

    WGT is not a charity - how would they make money out of your idea ?

    With so many coin only players having billions of coins the rate of exchange would have to astronomical for WGT to even break even.

    I might suggest purchasing one of the Steam platforms bundle packs for WGT.

    They have 4 or 5 different offerings that discount credits and give a bonus of clubs and balls.

    It does feel kind of good to be a multimillionaire even if it is worthless coins. I do agree there should be some other ways to spend them other than apparel upgrades. How about if I could gift them to other players that want an apparel upgrade but do not have the coins?  That would not make WGT anything, but it would not cost them anything either. Just a thought.

    If they would have implemented this on day one, perhaps it could have worked, but there are players now with trillions of coins. The exchange rates would be ridiculously high at this stage. 

    There are many ways to earn credits with videos, surveys, apps, tournaments, goals and achievements etc...

    That is the whole issue . It would cost them dearly . Even bankrupt them .

    The act of exchanging something of no value . For items of low to high value .

    Is a very fast way for WGT's sales of everything , to come to a complete halt .

    There are sextillions of coins out there . If coins were able to be used monetarily . No credits would be used . The Pro Shop would sell out . Everyone would have $15.00 balls . Golden Putters would have to go into production . Lol .

    I meant just for apparel upgrades So I can sit on my pile of useless coins while somebody else wants them. Some people may use credits to buy coins for apparel upgrades but not that many I don't think. I was not saying use coins like credits in the pro shop! Just be able to gift some to players who want an apparel upgrade but don't have the coins and are unlikely going to spend credits on coins to get it.

    If I were the man running WGT, I would sell "Random Exchange Rate Vouchers" in the pro shop.

    In other words, this is a voucher which gives you the right to exchange (convert) a certain amount of your silver coins to gold credits at a randomly set exchange rate.

    Obviously, most of times, you will get a crappy exchange rate like 1:100,000 for instance, but there are also 1:1(!!!), 1:10, 1:100 and so on to lure the players. And there should be also a limit of amount, for example, you will be only able to exchange no more than one million coins at a time per voucher.

    The voucher price? Well, you set it in consideration of how much the return rate* would be. I'm sure you have experts for that in the company like most casinos do. ;) (* You guys call it RTP, return to player, right?)

    If WGT makes this come true, it would sell like hot cakes, flying off the shelf.
