Support response time and quality are both good and e-mails are usually answered in a reasonable time. Some support lag used to occur on Full Tilt but since PokerStars took over it’s been much smoother.

Full Review

Launched in 2004, Full Tilt Poker became one of the biggest and most successful online poker sites in history.

The entire site came crashing to the ground in 2011, however, when the company was unable to pay back its players after the events of Black Friday.

After an arduous 16-month period former rival PokerStars moved in and purchased the site and paid back all players outside of the United States.

The new Full Tilt Poker is leaner and meaner than ever with a starting pro lineup of just Gus Hansen, Tom Dwan and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom. The old guard of Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson and Phil Ivey no longer have any connection to the site.

Fortunately the product is as strong as ever, perhaps even better than ever with PokerStars-level security and finances.

For the average joe there's action at virtually any game and limit 24/7, with Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Razz all offered.

Full Tilt Poker is also one of few sites with mixed games like H.O.R.S.E. and H.O.S.E. in both cash games and tournaments, making the game variation one of the most extensive online. In early 2010 Full Tilt introduced Rush Poker - an awesome variation that moves you instantly on to a new hand when you fold - which gave action-junkies a new outlet.

Full Tilt Poker's software has some very innovative functions and features excellent graphics - definitely measuring up as one of the best in the industry.

Overall, Full Tilt delivers the goods - plenty of tables and games to pick from, a pro presence to give you the "high-stakes experience" and a chance to watch some super sick games at the marquee $500/$1,000 tables.

No longer available to U.S. players, Full Tilt Poker is still open to anyone outside of the U.S. and remains one of the biggest online poker sites available.

Bonus Code and Promotions

Sign up through a PL.com link and get a $600

At 100%

Full Tilt Poker offers a $600 sign-up bonus at 100% deposit match for all players.

Bonus Payout: Your bonus clears at the rate of $1 for every 25 Full Tilt Points. For example it would take 250 FTPs to clear $10. The bonus is released to a player's cash account in increments of 10% of the initial deposit or $20, whichever is smaller. Clearing time is 90 days.

Loyalty Program

Playing in any qualifying raked real-money ring-game hand or real-money MTT or sit-and-go earns Full Tilt player points. For each $1 raked from a pot in a ring game, 10 Full Tilt Points will be divided between players. Only players who put money into a raked pot will receive points. Players who contributed more to the rake will receive more points.

For every $1 in MTT or SNG fees, players get 10 Full Tilt Points with no limit to the amount earned per tournament. E.g. play in a $200+$16 tournament, you'll earn 160 points.

Full Tilt Points can then be spent on merch in the FTP store, exclusive tourneys and more. Earn double or triple points during daily Happy Hour periods; bonus points automatically appear in your account.

Because of the sheer volume of players, there's also never a shortage of ongoing promos at Full Tilt. Points tourneys run frequently with plenty of satellites to big live and online events like the WPT, WSOP or the FTOPS series included. Daily happy hours, bounty tourneys, leaderboard and Iron Man challenges are just a few more examples - check the news and promos page on FTP for the latest.

Tournaments and Freerolls

Full Tilt Poker has a massive amount of tournaments with buy-ins from $1 all the way up to $25,000 or more. Events are busy, fast, well structured and very competitive at all levels. The bigger buy-in tournaments are super tough and you're very likely to meet the world's top pros at the final table.

Players wanting to test their skills at big guaranteed MTTs will find plenty of chances at Full Tilt with millions in guaranteed events each week. It's also still growing, adding more tournaments daily and players are sure to find an event they like.

Full Tilt Poker runs plenty of freerolls also - most of which are multi-table events with relatively loose play. One of the unique features of Tilt though is that freerolls are run in all game varieties, not just Texas Hold'em. It's a huge benefit for game specialists and old schoolers looking for a shot at free money, while players looking to try some new games can enter the events without the risk of crippling their bankrolls.

For those looking for larger freerolls, Full Tilt Poker runs an assortment of free tournaments where players can buy in with their player points. Tons of big ticket freerolls for packages to the WSOP, WPT, EPT and more are also constantly on the table.

Software and Graphics

Full Tilt Poker's software is one of the best available, with good customization options, fast game play, nice graphics and high reliability. It offers all the major features including player notes, statistics and multi-table play, plus a number of unique special features that really enhance game play.

Overall, it's definitely made by and for poker players, and gets better with every update. The latest version of the Full Tilt Poker software supports play at 18 tables simultaneously and it's very well-suited for multi-table play with easy-to-use table functions, a great mini-view, a "time bank" for crucial decisions and the ability to sit at any table position.

The mini-table view is clean and easy to use with nine tables possible on a 22" monitor with no overlap. You can also save your own custom table layout settings.

Full Tilt Poker offers a ton of special features and every software update adds more smart functionality. Among the best are the time bank for making big decisions, a "top up" feature that automatically refills your stack at cash games, pre-determined buy-ins, automatic re-buys, a log-in history and taking satellite wins in credits instead of a fixed buy-in.

Full Tilt's software also offers several exclusive features you won't find anywhere else including rapid-fire Rush Poker multi-table tournaments and even multi-entry tournaments.

Soft Competition

Competition at Full Tilt Poker ranges from relatively loose at the micro limits to pretty much unbeatable at the high and ultra-high stakes.

Full Tilt Poker is definitely one of the rooms you’ll find “grinders” making a living from online poker, so realize if you’re hitting the mid-stakes games and up you'll find players with thousands of hours of experience ready and able to pick your game apart.

That being said, there are plenty of noobs at the micro-stakes. Basically, pick your tables and stakes well and you can find very beatable games. No-Limit games are still soft, but more difficult than your average online poker room. Players looking for softer games should consider Omaha and the mixed games also.
