Full Tilt Poker Room Review
Full Tilt is the largest online poker room to offer rakeback to players and the second largest site to offer their games to USA players. During peak times, which are approximately 21:00 GMT each day, they frequently have over 20,000 real money players on their site. Cash games and Sit N Gos are available, and run in many different games including various forms of Hold’em, Omaha and Stud. They also provide many different mixed games such as HORSE, HOSE and HOE. Tournament players can participate in some of the largest guaranteed tournaments online, highlighted by the $1,000,000 Monthly Guarantee tournament. Tournament promotions and events centered on the World Series of Poker and the Full Tilt Online Poker Series are also quite popular with players.
New players signing up with Full Tilt Poker can take advantage of a 100% up to $600 sign-up bonus clearable at a rate of 25 Full Tilt Points per $1 of bonus money, the equivalent of 40% rakeback. Full Tilt Points are awarded for each $1 in rake to the table, and divided equally to all players dealt cards. For example, if there are 9 players dealt cards and a $1 rake taken, each player would receive 1.11 FTP ($1/9). Rakeback players can also take advantage of the sign-up bonus; however, bonuses are deducted from their MGR when participating. Still, effective clearance rates improve a player’s total rakeback return to 56% at all games. The bonus releases in $20 or 10% increments, whichever is less. Players have 120 days to complete the terms of the sign-up bonus.
