SNG madness and happy hours were also pretty good on Fulltilt.
I sound like a Fulltilt fanboy lol, but their SNG setup was really good.
Volume is rewarded via the VIP system... Maybe you can increase fish their volume by offering them double rewards, but I'm not too sure. I do like the idea of some sort of Iron Man ish thing though, where you are rewarded for steady volume rather than total volume.
I feel like the problem with the Battle of Planets is as follows:
-Fish can rarely get high up the leaderboard, it is demotivating for them to see how many players are "better than them" and the chance of them winning a high spot is near zero.
-Regs still need to run stupid hot to get a shot at any significant money, which increases the variance of these games. I figure most regs would prefer less rake or something more volume based
What is good about it:
-It increases competition and incentive to play!
So what I would suggest is that you try and create the best of both worlds.
-Keep the leaderboards, but reduce the prizes to the Battle of Planets monthly freeroll tickets for the top 20 on each leaderboard.
-Use some of the money to create monthly volume based SNG prizes incentive like Iron man, some stupid example:
200 VPPs 15 days a month: 20 dollars bonus for the next month
500 VPPs 15 days a month: 50 dollars " "
1000 VPPs 15 days a month: 100 dollars " "
200 VPPs 25 days a month: 45 dollars " "
500 VPPs 25 days a month: 125 dollars " "
1000 VPPs 25 days a month: 275 dollars " "
This would not necessarily attract new players, but would create an uptick in volume over all types of players.
Then use the rest of the money to create a SNG lottery tickets to complete the fun, where you get a lottery ticket for every 20 raked SNGs you play until a certain point where you would then get once every 100. At the end of the month there is a big draw where you can find out wether your tickets won anything. This would deff attract new players imo.
