£500 Money Back Guarantee
New customers only. Min. deposit £10. Max. refund of up to £500 to be claimed within 7 days of first deposit. 18+ only. Account required. UK only. Additional T&Cs apply.
New customers can rest assured that they will not lose any money when they first start to use Football Index, so they can learn how to navigate the site without having to be cautious. This is only available for new players, who have made a first deposit of at least £10 pounds. If in your first week of using the site you win money and have no net losses, that is great. But if you have not made a profit in this first week, you can claim all of your losses back, up to the value of £500. If you want to claim the bonus and have suffered losses, you must sell all of your remaining shares via the instant sell method, and email Football Index customer service. They will refund all of the deposits that were made in your first week. This allows you to start again from scratch, but this time with a greater understanding of how to work the site and how to benefit from the system.
Check out how to claim your bonus under the following terms and conditions:
- The offer is automatically activated as soon as you make your first qualifying deposit of £10, but you must manually sell all of your remaining shares and email customer service for a refund if you want to claim your money back.
- This offer can be redeemed any time within the first 7 days of playing on your new account, but can only be redeemed once.
- This offer is only eligible for those who made losses within their first week, not those who made profits.
- The promotion cannot be claimed in conjunction with any others that Football Index might offer.
Refer a Friend promo
If a friend of yours decides to join Football Index as well, both of you will receive a £10 bonus each. Here is how to do it. First of all, your referred new trader needs to provide a referral code upon signup. The code can be found in your account’s settings. After registration, there is a minimum deposit requirement. Both of you need to meet it to receive your reward. The min deposit needed is also £10.
As for the referral code, it is a long sequence of letters and numbers. If you have trouble locating it, contact the support team for assistance.
Are there any bonuses for existing customers?
At the moment, the welcome cashback offer is the only promotion that is available on the site, although punters can still take advantage of dividends. These are payments that are made while you hold shares, and are given out for a number of different reasons (media coverage, performance, and special in-play dividends for shares that were bought less than 30 days ago). Although these are not a promotion run by the site, they are instead a feature of the football stock market that happens to reward users for buying and holding on to shares, if those shares are successful.
Media dividends are payouts based on how often certain players appear in the media. On match days, the single player with the most media mentions wins dividends, which are paid to all punters who own shares that were bought before 15:00 (London time) on the day of the match. Punters will receive £0.03 per share. On all other non-match days, the top three players with the most media mentions will receive dividends, paid out to all stockholders. The media rankings can be tracked on the live ranking tab, which can be viewed on the website, as well as through the app.
Footballers can also earn dividends for their performance on match day. Dividends are paid out for the top forwarder, top midfielder, top defender, and star player. The number one player in each category will receive £0.08 per share if it is a Gold match day, winners from a Silver match day will receive £0.04 per share, and bronze match days will pay out £0.02 per share. Punters can claim these dividends if they own or buy shares in the winning player (or players) before 15:00 London time on match day. The dividends will be received the following day. Punters can see the full point scoring system on the website to understand how the best players are calculated. The stats can be tracked through the live ranking tab as well.
For the first 30 days after you buy shares, you can receive in-play dividends from them. These will be paid out for a number of categories, including goals scored (the reward differs depending on who scores the goal), assists, and a goalkeeper clean sheet. These dividends are only eligible on a set of shares once, but if you buy more shares, you will be able to claim in-play dividends on them as well. Unlike the other two forms of dividends, you can buy shares in players that have already won on that day and retroactively receive their bonuses. This means that you can still buy shares up to 23:59 on any day, and you will benefit from any dividends that were won earlier on during the day.
Is There a Football Index No Deposit Bonus?
No, the promotions that are available on the site all require users to first use their own money. The welcome bonus operates specifically on the amount of real money that a punter deposits, and although you can get the opportunity to claim this money back, you must still spend it initially. The dividends can only be received if you have bought shares in players, and this can only be done by depositing real money and buying stocks.
Is There a Football Index Mobile Offer?
No, Football Index does not offer any bonuses to those who download and use their app, or for those who access the mobile site. However, punters can still receive the welcome bonus from a mobile platform, and they can still receive dividends, as well as track the live rankings if they are interested. There is no exclusive content available for mobile users, but they can still take advantage of all of the services from the main website.
Payment Methods and Their Limits
Football Index is incredibly limited in terms of what payment methods they offer their users. Punters can only deposit or withdraw money using Visa or Mastercard. This might seem unusual, especially considering the fact that the site is so innovative in other terms. Both of these methods offer the exact same limitations and timeframes, and it can take up to 5 days for withdrawals to process. While this is not necessarily unusual for payment methods, most sites usually offer faster options as well.
The Football Index does not charge a fee for any of these transactions (for either Visa or Mastercard), but users must remember that they do impose a 2% commission fee on all shares that you sell.
|Payment Method||Deposit Minimum||Deposit Maximum||Time for Deposit|
|Payment Method||Withdrawal Minimum||Withdrawal Maximum||Time for Withdrawal|
|Visa||£10||Not specified||2-5 working days|
|MasterCard||£10||Not specified||2-5 working days|
How does the welcome bonus work?
The welcome bonus is available for all users, but only those who experienced losses in their first 7 days of having their account. Punters must deposit at least £10, and start buying shares and building your portfolio. If you only experience losses during this 7 day period, you can choose to receive the money-back bonus. You must instantly sell all of your shares that you have in your portfolio, and you will receive a refund, up to the value of £500, that covers your deposits over this time period.
Why did I not receive my full deposit back from the promotion?
The moneyback that Football Index pays you is designed to supplement the amount that you receive from selling all your shares. To receive the promotion, you must instantly sell all of the remaining shares in your portfolio, so that you have nothing left. When you sell these, you will receive compensation (even if it is less than what you paid for them in the first place). The Football Index will then top this amount up with their money-back guarantee. After you have received your payment for instant selling your shares, and your money refunded, you should have the total amount that you initially deposited (as closely as possible, considering that the money-back guarantee will only refund you up to £500).
How long does it take to receive my money back?
You should receive your money back from the welcome promotion within 48 hours of contacting customer service. If you are eligible to receive it and you have not within this time frame, you should follow up with the company.
Are there any other bonuses for existing users?
No, there are no other bonuses or promotions on the site for existing users. The Football Index does offer dividends to punters with shares in successful players, but these are considered an inherent aspect of the football stock market and are not considered a promotion.
Can I receive more than one form of dividend?
Yes, you can receive more than one form of dividend on the same shares. If your shares in a certain player are eligible to receive multiple dividends on match day, you will get all of these. Your shares are always eligible for dividends, this is an ongoing feature of the site.
Is there a Football Index bonus code?
At the moment, there are no promotions or added extras that can be unlocked with the use of a promo code. It is possible that there may be one in the future, but currently, there is not.
Is there an offer on the share prices of new football players?
No. When new football players are added to the market exchange, their initial value is determined by Football Index, based on their abilities and perceived worth compared to other players on the site. As a result of this, their initial share prices may be high if they are good players, or low. As with the real stock market, share prices will increase if many people buy into them, but there is no special price to introduce them to the site.
About the Company
Football Index is the first bookmaker of its’ kind. Their idea is to create a simulation of a real-world stock exchange, where punters can buy shares in players as if they were shares in companies. The Football Index stock exchange displays the value of players, with share values that fluctuate in real-time to represent what happens in the real world. Football Index is owned and operated by BetIndex Ltd, and was launched in 2015. The site holds licenses from both the UK Gambling Commission and the Jersey Gambling Commission and is currently only available to UK residents.

Bonus Rating and Final Verdict
The welcome bonus is a great introduction to the site and acts as insurance for punters who are still getting to know how things work. Although it is only for those who are initially unsuccessful at betting this way, it allows users to immediately take full advantage of the site, without being overly cautious and potentially missing out.
It is unfortunate that this is the only promotion on the site. There are no bonuses for existing players, which may encourage users to buy or sell more shares. The site does offer a range of dividends, however, these are not necessarily a promotion, and rather just a beneficial feature of the site that mimics what happens in the real stock market.
Focusing solely on the real bonuses on offer, Football Index provides a disappointingly limited range for their users. Due to the fact that their whole site is a novel way to bet on football, they do not really have any other competition in their niche. They do not need to encourage users to join by creating promotions, but this would still be welcomed by users.
