Full Tilt Bonuses and VIP Scheme
One of the many reasons Full Tilt is so popular among players from all over the world is its substantial first-deposit bonus, because all the new customers who sign up to Full Tilt via PokerNews Canada can help themselves to a 100% match up to $600 first-deposit bonus.
All you need to do to get your hands on this lucrative bonus is:
- Download Full Tilt via PokerNews Canada
- Create your account, log in, open the cashier, and make a deposit
- While logged in, and within 60 days of making your first deposit, go to the cashier, select My Promotions, or open the Promotions menus and click My Promotions (Web)
- Select one of the links to your My 100% First Deposit Bonus page, and click on the Opt In Now button
Once you have opted in, you have 60 days to earn the full bonus amount by accumulating Full Tilt Points. Full Tilt Points are earned at a rate of 10 Full Tilt Points per $1 you contribute to the rake or tournament fees.
Your bonus clears at a rate of $1 for every 25 Full Tilt Points earned and the bonus is automatically released into your account in increments of 10% of your initial deposit, or $20, whichever is smaller.
Edge: Gain the Edge, Reap the Rewards
One of Full Tilt's loyalty schemes is called Edge and sees players have up to 25% of their rake and tournament fees returned to them. Edge has three levels: Edge, Edge Plus, and Edge Prime.
Our Edge Status changes depending on the number of Full Tilt Points (FTPs) you earn over a rolling average. Here’s a table showing what you need to earn:
|Status Level||30-day Rolling Average||100-day Rolling Average|
|Edge||80 FTPs||70 FTPs|
|Edge Plus||250 FTPs||150 FTPs|
|Edge Prime||500 FTPs||400 FTPs|
All Edge players compete on the Edge leaderboard and shop for special bonuses in the Edge Store. Anyone choosing the Edge loyalty scheme can also play The Deal, a fun side game that awards Coins, tournaments tickets, Full Tilt Points, cash, and a shot at a huge jackpot, for 20 Full Tilt Points.
Edge players also receive weekly Edge Rewards cash payments based on the Full Tilt Points they earn.
- Edge: players receive $1 per 100 Full Tilt Points earned
- Edge Plus: players receive $1.50 per 100 Full Tilt Points earned
- Edge Prime: players receive $2 per 100 Full Tilt Points earned and can convert their collected Full Tilt Points to cash at a rate of $1 per 250 Full Tilt Points
Full Tilt players can also choose to become part of the Players Club loyalty scheme, which gives you access to Jackpot Sit & Go Freerolls, depositor freerolls, Coin Freerolls, and Daily Freerolls in addition to Players Club exclusive tournaments, and the Weekly Windfall where you receive tickets to a $5K Weekly Windfall Flip Freeroll for playing real-money poker on any three days during the week.
Games Offered at Full Tilt
Full Tilt currently offers hold'em, Omaha, and Omaha Hi/Lo cash games with blinds starting as low as $0.01/$0.02 and increasing to $10/$20 ($15/$30 for fixed-limit games).
Cash game players are protected from so-called "bum hunters" by the fact you do not choose the seat you sit at. Instead, you select the stakes that you want to play and the Full Tilt software automatically sits you in an open seat.
While hold'em and Omaha dominates Full Tilt's tournament offering, it does spread various draw, stud, and mixed-games tournaments, particularly during its value-packed online tournament festivals and series.
Can You Withstand the Pace of Rush Poker?
It was Full Tilt who introduced "fast-fold" poker to the masses with its Rush Poker product. At a standard cash game table you are seated on the same table for the duration of your game, but in Rush Poker, as soon as you click the fast fold button you are moved to a new table, with new opponents and fresh hole cards. If you don’t like the cards dealt to you on this new table, then simply click fold again and be whisked away to a new table once again!
This superb format allows you to play thousands of hands per hour if you are able to play several tables at once, which in turn allows you to climb up the VIP scheme faster and clear bonuses quickly.
Turn $10 Into $20,000 With The Jackpots Sit-and-Gos
Full Tilt runs "Jackpot Sit-and-Go" tournaments, a series of three-handed super turbo sit-and-go events that bring players at the table to play against only two opponents for a prize pool that can go up to a hefty $20,000 for a buy-in as low as $10.
Jackpot Sit-and-Gos are available with a buy-in range from $1, $2.50, $5, $10, and $50 and give players the chance to play for a prize pool that can go all the way up to 2,000 times the buy-in.
The tournaments are "winner takes all" unless you're playing for a prize pool with a buy-in multiplier of 100, 500, or 2000, in which case the prize pool is distributed as follows:
- 1st Place: 75% of the prize pool
- 2nd Place: 15% of the prize pool
- 3rd Place: 10% of the prize pool
Huge Poker Tournament Festivals
Full Tilt is the home to several major poker festivals that give players the chance to win some huge cash prizes.
The largest of these festivals is the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS), which attracts some of the best players in the business. The more affordable MiniFTOPS gives you the opportunity to play in the same FTOPS events, but with a buy-in 1/10 of the size!
Those of you who love low-stake turbo tournaments need to look out for the Micro Turbo Online Poker Series (MTOPS)!
There is an extensive FAQ in the Help Centre on the Full Tilt website that should be more than enough to help sort out any problems you may encounter. Should you need further assistance, email support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
