Anyone else won/been given some of these.

I'm now the proud of owner of £100 of Game Digital virtual shares. When the company gets floated on the stock market later this month, my £100 of "shares" will track the value of the real shares and at set points over the next three years I can choose to cash them in for the equivalent amount of reward points.

The first exchange period is in October so I could theoretically get £100 of Game reward points if the sure price has remained the same, although knowing Game I fully suspect it to have plummeted. However, if the share price has risen then I could get more.

Something for nothing isn't bad, although I suspect it might be almost fuck all for nothing :lol:

I got given some. Haven't gone to get my "Certificate" yet though. It is an exciting opportunity having these, and the advantage is being able to put the money straight back into game.....

On thing to note is I believe they are starting at 2.39 on the market, which equates to about 4100 shares total or so. So long as the increase it good enough between now and one pay out time, I'm going to be very happy!

When you go in, make sure you have a opt of the email with you. Despite the fact the email says, you only need your Game card or App, they wouldn't give me the certificate without showing them the email.

I'd deleted it from my phone and had to spend an age looking through all my emails online to find it.

Just looked at the share price and they've already had to lower the flotation price to 200p. I would fully expect these to be worth about £50 by the time we get the chance to cash them in, although I'm happy to be proved wrong

I got them too. I am quite happy to get them. I expect it will amount to pretty much nothing when the time comes but it was a decent gesture

For those of us who were expecting the square root of bugger all, I've got some good news. As it stands, the Game Digital share price is standing at 256p, which is 56p up on what the share price when we were given them.

Ergo, our £100 of shares is currently worth £128 and I believe from reading the T&Cs we can increase our number of shares if the shares pay a dividend. The first redemption date is coming up as well and I'm now a bit undecided what to do

I never got any and didn't know how to get in (It was random, right?)

But great that it looks like it's working out though!

It is a good freebie. No idea on how stuff like that works though. All I know is they will tell me how much they are worth at set points over the next year or so and I can have that added to my wallet with them.

I still haven't got round to picking the certificate up.

Looking forward to cashing in just in time for the big winter game release window though.

I think if you haven't picked up the certificate by now then you've lost them. There was a date on the original email that was some time back in June for collection.
