One of the biggest aspects to the Fifa Franchise is the fantastic Ultimate Team game mode which has kept millions of people entertained throughout the year. With the importance of Fifa Coins within the game and how many YouTubers play "wager matches" or "Pink Slips" will this ever become an option to the everyday Fifa player?
Many people will have seen popular YouTubers playing against one another, risking millions of Fifa Coins or top players in a singular 90 minute match and yet this option seems impossible for us regular players. The worst thing about this is many people try to exploit this, creating social media accounts which attempt to "scam" Fifa Coins and players off individuals. Not only that but should 2 people agree to partake in a wager/pinks slips match and they loose, without the proper guidance or mediation, nothing is ever handed over and the looser sucks face and shuts off their console. So with all this in mind, will EA ever allow this as an option?
Other popular games such as the Call of Duty franchise and Grand Theft Auto both have an option to gamble their version of currency in multi-player online games. However both of these franchises have obtained relevant licences and both have an age rating of 18+. Because of this EA would have to raise the games age rating to 18+ meaning many thousands if not millions of potential customers may be effected and unable to purchase the game.
So, because of this, the answer shall more than likely always be a no. You will not be able to gamble away your Fifa Coins or top players in the hopes of boosting your bankroll or your Ultimate Team. However, this doesn't mean the option to partake in wager/pink slip matches won't ever happen!
Should a reputable business come along which has a track record of being trustworthy within the industry create a website or an option, people may be able to partake in wager matches. It may mean the winner of the match has to go the extra mile to prove their victory or the delivery of the grand prize takes longer, but it would mean the option is there and many people will get involved. Of course with millions of Fifa Coins on the line or some of the best players in the game up for grabs, it does add another angle for potential con artists to exploit.
