Full Tilt Poker Review

Full Tilt LobbyFull Tilt Poker is another card room that i was able to review recently . Here are a few excerpts from my full tilt poker review.Full Tilt Poker has a number of deposit methods catering to the needs of most online gamers. This differs from country to country and can be confusing when getting advice from overseas friends. The best thing to do here would be to check out the full tilt site before you decide to play on full tilt.

Depositing is made easy, there is no need to provide a mass of personal details to start playing on the site. Full Tilt Poker accepts a minimum deposit amount of $30USD. There are no fees charged to make a deposit. Processing of deposits is fast and hassle free, with some methods - INSTANT.

Tournaments and Sit N Go's 8/10'
The highlight of my full tilt poker review has to be the tournaments section.Full Tilt Poker is home to some of the biggest online tournaments available. Each week, Full Tilt poker has a GTD $750,000.00 tournament. The buy in for this tournament is only $200+$16 making it well worth the entry. Full Tilt poker also has tournaments with 350k GTD, 75kGTD and more. Entry can be made into these tournaments through satellites and using Full Tilt points. It can be very cheap to enter with satellites starting at $1.

On the lowest scale of the tournament ladder, Full Tilt poker offers freerolls to its customers daily. They offer individual freerolls to residents of most countries so you play against those on your home soil only. Also daily Full Tilt poker offers a $15 freeroll  for all Full Tilt customers. This is a great opportunity to experience the Full Tilt poker tournament for all new players and also to increase your bankroll at the same time. There are also as mentioned above, new depositor freerolls monthly.

On the scale of low limit buy-ins, tournaments start from $1 each right through to your desired limit. The tournaments at these levels include regular tournaments through to satellites for the major Full Tilt tournaments mentioned above. Tournaments for almost every poker variant can be played including mixed games.

To save you waiting for your tournament to start, Full Tilt poker offers SNG from a minimum $1+25c, through to a massive $4225+$425. What i also observed in my full tilt poker review is that there is a Sit N Go to suit every budget with minimal wait.Again, these are available in most poker variants and mixed games. Satellites for the major tourneys are also available by simply sitting and going.

Full Tilt poker offers its customers the unique Matrix Sit N Go's where SNG tournaments are played at once with the winner of each tournament taking down cash as well as the overall winner of all

There are a mass of cash prizes to be won for any patient, skilled and lucky tournament or sit and go player. Payout structures are fair and well worth the effort, come in 2nd, 3rd, 4th or even 100th in the bigger tournaments and you are going to be rewarded for your efforts.There are few low limit guaranteed dollar tournaments.

Software 7/10
The software is simple to use, I suggest doing the guided tour prior to finding your favorite game though as Full Tilt has a lot to offer. The graphics are not the best available online, but if your computer and internet speed isn't the fastest it will suit your needs. Avatars are available in a number of different cartoon characters; the choice is yours, panda, zombie, army girl or a dog as examples. Customer avatars are available in the Full Tilt poker store but are expensive. They are also available to the Full Tilt professional players and major tourney winners. A simple click on you character (avatar) and your facial expressions can be changed according to your feelings, angry, happy etc.
Full Tilt Table

Different backgrounds are available so you can play on your desired table. The tables offer a multitude of features, some of the best in the game! This includes hand history, current tournament standings and instant click to take you to the tournament lobby. In a ring game, chips are available by the click of a button.

3 different lobby's are available to choose from. The most recent lobby is not as stable as the older available ones. Overall however the software is reliable and stable & I have given it a score of 7 in my full tilt poker review.

Payouts 8/10
Payouts are easy, very non complicated with Full Tilt poker. They are handled fast and professionally. Checks are usually received usually within 7 days for US customers, a little longer for other countries.Other withdrawal methods (dependable on country) include:

  • Netteller
  • Visa
  • Money bookers
  • Click2pay
  • Click and buy
  • Local Bank Transfer
  • Web Money

As per my full tilt poker review each withdrawal method allows a minimum of $50 and the maximum varies up to the sum of $10,000 for the local bank transfer method. Some methods are almost instant; pending approval and others take 3-5 working days.

Customer Service 5/10
Full Tilt is fairly prompt with their customer service. The only method of service however is email, where other sites offer live chat and phone support.

Traffic 10/10

This full tilt poker review has the traffic for the site at a score of 10 for many reasons. Full Tilt Poker is one of the true online gaming giants with plenty of action available 24/7 at most levels of play. High stakes play attracts probably the least traffic.

Games Selection 10/10

I always give the Games Selection section a lot of importance in all my poker room reviews and the full tilt poker review is no different. Hold'em – Full Tilt poker offers its players No Limit, Pot Limit and Limit Hold’em tables from the lowest to the highest of stakes. Tables are available anywhere from 2 seat play (heads-up) through to 10 seats. All Hold'em games are available in tournament play and Sit N Go's also from low to high stakes.

Omaha – Full Tilt offers their customers both Omaha hi and Omaha hi/ lo. The Omaha tables are commonly in use by big name pros playing high stakes. Omaha is available at all stakes from even the lowest level micro 1c and 2c. Tournaments and Sit N Go's run continually.

7 card stud adds to the games list on Full Tilt Poker. It is a less commonly known game but again, available from low to higher stakes.

Razz can be hard to find on an online gaming site. It is a less then popular game but loads of fun. Full Tilt offers this game to its customers from low to medium / high stakes. Tournaments are not as commonly found as with the other poker variants.
H.O.R.S.E. - H.O.R.S.E is yet another uncommon online game. Horse includes most of the poker variants, it is a mixed game. Fulltilt poker offers H.O.R.S.E in both ring games and tournament. Stakes again from low to medium / high. Hence the full tilt poker review rates the game selection section at 10.

Other features 10/10
Full Tilt Poker has a huge variety of other features available for its customers. They have huge amount of professional poker players who play both on and offline at various stakes from all over the world. They offer chat sessions with the pros as well as online guides and advice from them. Full Tilt send out regular emails to their customers informing them of the latest hypes on the site as well as including some brilliant advice from the pros. The Full Tilt shop offers trendy merchandise to fans and players alike making earning Full Tilt points all the more fun.

As per my full tilt poker review, Full Tilt Poker is place that every player would enjoy playing on. The software is simple, easy deposit and withdrawal methods and clean graphics. Full Tilt Poker has all the poker game variants on offer and a absolute treat to play on.
