About Full Tilt
Full Tilt is one of the most popular online poker sites in the world thanks to its fantastic software and the ongoing promotion that it runs.
Owned by Amaya Gaming – owner of PokerStars – Full Tilt is an online poker that is focussed on player experience and enjoyment. There is not only high-octane poker action to enjoy, Full Tilt players can now get involved in some of the most exciting casino games.
On May 17, 2016, Full Tilt migrated to the PokerStars platform with which it now shares player traffic, giving Full Tilt players a wider variety of cash games, a much bigger tournaments.
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 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
- 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 day to earn the full bonus amount by accumulating VPPs. VPPs are earned at a rate of 5.5 VPPs per $1 you contribute to the rake or tournament fees, although the rate is slightly higher for players playing $0.01/$0.02 to $0.05/$0.10 cash games.
Your bonus clears at a rate of $10 for every 200 VPPs earned and the bonus is automatically released into your account in increments of $10.
You can make a total of three deposits within 60 days and still receive the 100% match bonus, but a maximum of $600 worth of bonuses will be awarded.
Earn StarsCoins and Climb the VIP Ladder
Full Tilt uses the same VIP scheme as its sister site PokerStars, namely StarsCoins. There are six levels to the VIP scheme, as shown in the table below:
|VIP Level||Steps Required For Level||StarsCoins Earned if all Steps Completed||Value|
|ChromeStar||20 BronzeStar Steps||1,490||12-16%|
|SilverStar||25 ChromeStar Steps||9,375||15-21%|
|GoldStar||25 SilverStar Steps||33,875||18-25%|
|PlatinumStar||30 GoldStar Steps||456,000||22-25%|
The final level of the VIP scheme is Supernova, which players have a full year to complete the required steps. Once a Supernova, you can play for almost $200,000 worth of cash prizes each month, purchase any item in the VIP store with your StarsCoins, and even buy entry into major live poker events.
The higher you climb on the VIP ladder, the more lucrative the scheme becomes. The value of the freerolls increase, as does the amount of cash you can convert your StarsCoins into; it really does pay to play more!

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 $15 Into $150,000 With The Jackpots Sit-and-Gos
Full Tilt runs "Jackpot Sit-and-Go" tournaments, a series of 3-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 $2,500 for a buy-in as low as $0.25.
Jackpot Sit-and-Gos are available with a buy-in range from $0.25, $1, $3, $7, $15, $30, $60, and $100 and give players the chance to play for a prize pool that can go all the way up to 12,000 times the buy-in.
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 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP), which attracts some of the best players in the business. The more affordable MicroMillions gives you the opportunity to play in similar events to the WCOOP FTOPS events, but with a buy-in a fraction of the size!
Other festivals include the Turbo Championship Of Online Poker (TCOOP), and Spring Championship Of Online Poker (SCOOP).
