Full Full Tilt Poker Review

 
  • Full Tilt Poker Software


    Full Tilt Poker’s software is the favorite of many poker enthusiasts. It has the look and feel to attract casual players, while at the same time providing professional players most of what they need. Full Tilt has a few different table themes you can utilize and a few dozen different avatars you can choose to represent yourself with at the table.

    The lobby is well organized, and by utilizing the site's powerful filtering system, it is simple to find the games you are looking for. Full Tilt Poker also allows you to transfer money easily to other players and also directly to your own PokerStars account. Most third-party poker software seamlessly integrate with Full Tilt, including all major HUDs.

    Full Tilt Poker offers Rush Poker, which is a fast-action game where when you fold, you are brought to a new table with different players.

    Player Competition


    Full Tilt Poker is very competitive compared to most sites; however, it's a bit softer than its sister site, PokerStars. At lower limits, you can find plenty of fish and casual players, and as you move up in stakes, the competition gets much stiffer. Full Tilt Poker is also the most popular site for the highest stakes online cash game players.

    Security and Ethics


    Full Tilt Poker has rebounded since it was purchased by PokerStars. Colluding and multi-accounting are both taken seriously, with many cheaters banned for life. As an extra precaution, Full Tilt has a security token for those with balances they want to keep safe from hackers.

    Customer Support


    Full Tilt Poker is not known for top-tier customer support; however, it has improved dramatically since PokerStars acquired the site. Although it does not have live support, there are few reported issues of untimely responses to e-mails.

    Banking


    Full Tilt Poker allows most customers to deposit via credit card, e-wallet, bank transfer, check, or Western Union. Withdrawal options include all of the aforementioned deposit options as well as a check sent by mail. Cashouts are always done within a few days of requesting, provided the site’s security department has verified your documents. As previously mentioned, it is simple to deposit and withdraw to your PokerStars account if you so choose.

    Promotions


    Full Tilt Poker offers a 100% bonus up to $600 for first-time depositors. The bonus is paid in $10 or $20 increments depending on how much is initially deposited and you have 60 days to complete it, which is more generous than most sites. When completed, new customers receive 40% back on their rake paid on top of other benefits.

    Full Tilt Poker also has a generous rewards system called Edge, which if maximized contributes up to 25% cash back on your rake paid. Simultaneously, players earn Full Tilt Points, which can be used in the Full Tilt Store to purchase tournament tickets, cash bonuses, and merchandise. Besides the initial deposit bonus, Full Tilt also offers bonuses throughout the year. When working off a bonus, you still are eligible to accumulate cash back in the Edge Rewards program and earn Full Tilt Points.

    Flagship Tournaments


    Every Sunday, Full Tilt Poker has a $216 buy-in tournament with a $500,000 guarantee. This event is xtremely popular among professional players and casual players trying to earn a big score. With the room's multi-entry system, you can enter the same tournament more than once.

    Quarterly, Full Tilt runs its popular FTOPS, which is a series of events in all different types of games with generous guarantees. For lower stakes players, there is a Mini-FTOPS that has tournaments with buy-ins that are one-tenth as large as those found in the corresponding FTOPS.

    Overall Review


    Full Tilt Poker has easy-to-use software and is a site all serious poker players should consider placating. It has a wide selection of tournaments and sit and gos and boasts the famous fast-paced Rush Poker in tournaments, sit and gos, and cash games. The latter, which are available on all limits in popular types of poker games, come in Rush and standard varieties. We recommend Full Tilt Poker regardless of whether you are first starting to play poker or consider yourself a professional.
