We've all been there (okay, only in our dreams for some of us). You’re sitting at a final table on Full Tilt with the chip lead and three luck-box opponents just waiting to suck out on you, and to make matters even worse, the blinds are ready to go up. It's the perfect opportunity to make a deal, except for the fact that Full Tilt doesn't facilitate them. Well, rest assured, your luck has just turned around, with Full Tilt unleashing a massive software upgrade and a huge bonus on top of it.
Rolled out on July 30th, Full Tilt's latest software upgrade includes three unique lobby views with advanced filters and personalized lobby widgets, allowing you to glance at your Full Tilt Points balance, favorite game selections, and account balance. However, the most useful upgrade is the addition of Automatic Tournament Deals, which allows players to cut deals in MTT tournaments and sit-n-goes in a variety of different ways. Players can choose from these three formats for establishing final payouts:
Independent Chip Modeling (ICM) – The Independent Chip Model (ICM) calculates the probability of each stack finishing in each prize position to determine the true equity for each player and compute the fair payouts.
Chip Ratio – Awards payouts in direct proportion to stack size, except that no payout can exceed the minimum or maximum possible prize (e.g., the top payout cannot exceed the first-place prize).
Custom Deal – The player in control of the deal enters payout amounts into the custom fields and adjusts until all players agree.
To celebrate the improvements, Full Tilt is offering their "Biggest Bonus Ever", paying players at least $100 in bonus money for playing on the site with no deposit required. The bonus requires at least one Full Tilt point earned before July 28th, and is available for players through August 16th by simply accessing the My Promotions feature in the Cashier.
New players can jump into the action with a bonus of their own, of up to $600 on their first deposit at FullTiltPoker.com
