Full Tilt Poker for US Players

Full Tilt Poker do not accept players who reside in the US, nor should you play on Full Tilt poker while visiting the United States.

While it is possible to get around this with a VPN, this is not recommended. The massive fines from the US Department of Justice had the intended effect. Unlike in the past when Full Tilt were willing to turn a blind eye to US-based players, they now actively seek to ensure that no players residing in the US, or visiting the US can play poker on their network. While a VPN can trick the site into thinking you are located somewhere else, it just takes a single drop in network service while playing for you to get caught. Why take the risk when there are other quality poker sites that still accept US poker players?

Full Tilt Poker Loyalty Rewards Review

Full Tilt now uses the new much-hated Stars Rewards player rewards program implemented by PokerStars. Although the vast majority of the feedback for this program is negative, it's not nearly as bad as everyone thinks it is (and we plan to publish an article with our full analysis in the near future).

Chest Rewards Avg. Reward Freeroll
Red 7¢ - $50 18¢ $2,500
Blue 21¢ - $100 51¢
Bronze 53¢ - $250 $1.29 $10,000
Silver $1.35 - $500 $3.22
Gold $3.43 - $750 $8.00
Platinum $10.37 - $1,000 $23.52

With the new Stars Rewards program, Full Tilt are attempting to skew their rewards more in favor of "net depositors". Since poker played outside of home games is not a zero sum game, the economy relies on depositors, and yet these players are typically not given any special treatment. In fact, it's usually the "net withdrawers" (AKA, the pros and the grinders) who get all the rewards. This was certainly the case with the old Supernova program, where winning players were earning as much as 69% rakeback! Full Tilt realized that rewarding players who are already winning is pretty pointless, so they instead shifted their focus to the players the game needs most to survive: net depositors.

This creates a dilemna for the net withdrawers, who have lost a huge amount of earnings with the new Stars Rewards program. Since these players can all earn significantly more rewards with almost any other online poker site, many have left. However, as these players leave Full Tilt (and more "net depositors" join to take advantage of the very favorable bonuses for them), the games get softer. Professional players must now ask themselves, "Would I rather play soft games with 5-6% rakeback, or tough games with 50-60% rakeback?"

Stars Rewards

For every 1¢ you pay in rake or tournament fees, you earn 1 reward point. Earn enough reward points, and you earn a reward chest. Reward chests offer random prizes that vary greatly in value (from 7¢ to $50 for the basic Red chest). If you earn 4 chests of the same type in the same day, you move up to the next reward chest (e.g. from Red to Blue), which has a higher average value, but also requires more reward points to open. If your last 3 chests were opened on different days, then your next chest will be 1 rank lower (with a lower reward point requirement). Do not be overly concerned about moving up the levels - the overall rakeback rewards do not change significantly between chest types!

Chest Avg.
Value
Avg.
Bonus
Best Typical Worst
Cost Boost RB Cost Boost RB Cost Boost RB
Red 18¢ 15 150 75 30% 240 75 12% 280 45 8%
Blue 51¢ 32 370 160 29%  560 160 14% 675 160  11%
Bronze $1.29 72 800 200 29%  1,400 360 13% 2,350 360 7%
Silver $3.22 160 1,850 800 50%  3,400 1,800 22% 6,800 1,800 7%
Gold $8.00 360 4,250 1,800 56%  7,800 1,800 14% 18,000 1,800 5%
Platinum $23.52 800 10,250 2,500 50%  20,000 5,000 17% 48,000 5,000 6%


Full Tilt also give you a "boost", which doubles the number of reward points you earn while it is active. Each boost is based on points, not time. That is, you might get a boost of 75 points, which means that while this boost is active, when you earn 75 points (by paying 75¢ in rake or fees), you will actually receive 150 reward points. You get a new boost 8 hours after completing your current boost. It is possible for casual players to be on a boost at all times!  

The tricky part of the Full Tilt Stars Rewards program is that the reward point requirements for each chest, as well as the boost amounts vary based on your player profile (and the variation can be huge). Although there are other factors that contribute to your profile, the biggest is whether you are a net depositor, net withdrawer, or break-even player. Net depositors can earn as much as 56% equivalent rakeback with Stars Rewards, while net withdrawers can earn as little as 5%!

Break even players can expect to earn 12-22% rakeback from Stars Reward from @FullTiltPoker Click to Tweet

Our equivalent rakeback calculations will yield slightly higher numbers than those of other sites, because our analysis is far more comprehensive. For example, each time you open a chest, you receive one of three possible bonus reward points towards your next chest. For example, each Red chest gives 5, 15 or 25 reward points towards your next chest. In addition to the regular rewards, there are also Featured Rewards, which increases the average value of each chest. Finally, there is a 10% chance to receive a freeroll ticket with each chest you open. Although this value is not reflected in the tables in this section, it is included in our overall reward value calculations for Full Tilt.

It is very important to note that our equivalent rakeback calculations are based on the weighted average of the rewards from each chest. In other words, you are unlikely to receive exactly the rakeback our tables indicate. This is part of the draw of the Stars Rewards program - the opportunity to earn a big prize! The entire system is designed to attract gamblers. While this system may not be very appealing to grinders (who would much rather receive a fixed rakeback percentage), playing against gamblers should be very appealing!

Full Tilt Poker on Mac

Installing Full Tilt Poker is quick and easy, and the software is available for Windows, Mac, Android, or iOS operating systems.

Full Tilt Real Money Poker

Full Tilt offer real money poker in which you compete against other players from around the world. The site offers a variety of methods for depositing and withdrawing real money to and from your poker account.

For players not interested in gambling for real money, Full Tilt also offers play money poker. Both play money and real money poker is accessed from the same software client, allowing you to enjoy the site's excellent software without risking a cent!

Full Tilt Poker Deposit Bonus

Download FullTilt poker using any of the banners on this site and enter one of the following Full Tilt bonus codes:

FullTilt Bonus Code: 'THIRTY'

If you enter the Full Tilt bonus code 'THIRTY' and make a deposit of at least $20, you will receive:

  • 20 x $1 Spin & Go tickets
  • $10 in cash bonuses

@FullTiltPoker bonus code 'THIRTY' is best for players who generate less than $182/year in rake and fees. Click to Tweet

For these players, this is one of the best poker deposit bonuses available online, bettered only by the Americas Cardroom first deposit bonus, and PartyPoker sign-up bonus

FullTilt Bonus Code: 'STARS600'

If you generate more than $182/year in rake and fees, then you will earn more with the 'STARS600' bonus code from Full Tilt. You receive a 100% matched bonus up to $600. Although many other sites offer bigger bonus amounts, the favorable conditions on the Full Tilt sign-up bonus offer make it one of the best available online. In fact, if you generate between $800 and $9,000/year in rake and fees, then the Full Tilt deposit bonus is the absolute best of those we have analyzed.

If using the 'STARS600' bonus code, you can make up to 3 qualifying deposits over a 60 day period, and we strongly recommend that you do so. The advantage of spreading out your initial deposits in this way is that it increases the amount of time you have to earn your full bonus, as you have 4 months to earn each bonus after each qualifying deposit. That is, if you deposit $200 initially, then another $200 after 1 month, and make a third $200 deposit just before 60 days after your first deposit, then you have a full 6 months to earn the full bonus!

As you play poker on Full Tilt, you will earn 5 redemption points for every $1 paid in rake or tournament/SNG fees. For every 180 redemption points earned, you receive $10 of your first deposit bonus, which is 28% rakeback. Although other sites may offer a higher sign-up bonus rakeback percentage (such as BoyleSports poker, who offer 30% rakeback with their sign-up bonus), these sites do not offer as long of a redemption period as Full Tilt. As a result, you earn more total sign-up bonus rewards with Full Tilt than with any other online poker site sign-up bonus if you generate between $800 and $9,000/year in rake and fees.

Full Tilt Poker Freerolls

Freerolls are a great way to build a bankroll with no risk. However, most of the freerolls available on Full Tilt are very low value and generally not worth the effort. The Weekly Stars Rewards are the exception, but they're not a true freeroll since you can only receive these tickets from Stars Rewards chests, which are earned by generating rake or paying tournament fees.

School Pass Poker Freerolls

To get School Pass tickets, simply join Full Tilt's PokerSchoolOnline.com for FREE. You will earn some tickets just for signing up, and can then earn more by inviting friends, participating in quizzes, etc. However, since the value of the School Pass freerolls is pretty worthless (1-3¢ each), I would suggest you only join PokerSchoolOnline if you actually plan to take advantage of their free poker training or compete in The League. If you are new to poker, then PokerSchoolOnline is a great resource, and the School Pass freerolls are a great way to practice what you learn.

The League Poker Freerolls

  Prizes Pays 1st Big Bang Promoted Remain
Elementary $1,218 500 $50 10 2,000 All
High School $2,805 300 $150 20 800 1,200
University $7,990 150 $750 30 400 800
Masters $15,300 100 $3,000 50 - 600

Individually, each of "The League" freerolls are also pretty worthless, and if you are simply looking for the occasional free poker tournament to play, there are definitely better freeroll poker tournaments worth considering.

However, if you are willing to grind 1-2 freerolls every day between the 5th and 30th of each month, then there are huge rewards to be won in The League in the form of leaderboard rewards. Starting at the Elementary level, the top 500 ranked players for the month receive a portion of the $1,218 leaderboard prize pool, with $50 for 1st place. The top 10 ranked players also receive a ticket for the monthly Big Bang freeroll tournament, and the top 2,000 players are promoted to the University level for the next month.

Compete for a portion of the $15,300 prize leaderboard in the Masters League with @FullTiltPoker! Click to Tweet

However, The League is not for the casual freeroll player. You will want to play 1-2 freerolls 5-6 days a week, and even then will need some luck to win the top prizes. However, if grinding many low value tournaments is not a problem for you, then there are few better opportunities online to build a poker bankroll from nothing!

Maximizing Your Full Tilt Poker Rakeback

Typically, you want to play as many freerolls as possible in order to maximize your total equivalent rakeback rewards. However, most of the freerolls on Full Tilt are very low value and not worth the effort with three exceptions:

  • If you are willing to grind 30 or more freerolls in a month, then The League freerolls are a very profitable option due to the large leaderboard prizes. Work your way up to the Masters level and you can share in $15,300 in prizes!
  • The Stars Rewards freerolls are absolutely worth playing! Most players neglect to consider the value offered by these freerolls when calculating the value of the new Stars Rewards program. When you consider that the average value of a Red Stars Rewards Chest is just 18¢, getting a freeroll ticket with a value of 33¢ is a significant increase! And with an average value of $2.33, the freeroll tickets from Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum chests are even better.
  • While the Big Bang satellite freerolls are pretty worthless, if you happen to win a ticket directly to the $5,000 Main Event (usually from playing in The League), then you should absolutely play this tournament, since it has an average value of $2.24.

In addition to these 3 tournaments, you can also take advantage of the Zoom Usain Bolt freerolls until 16 October 2017. Simply deposit $10 each day using the Full Tilt bonus code 'BOLTTICKETS' and you will receive 3 Zoom freeroll tickets. With an average value ranging from 67¢ to $1.32, this represents a fantastic way to earn free poker money!

  Buy-In Places Quota
Fast Pass to "The League - High School" $1.10 20 1,000
Fast Pass to "The League - University" $3.30 20 1,000
Fast Pass to "The League - Masters" $5.50 14 700

If you are planning to grind The League, you can also go straight to your desired level by playing in Fast Pass tournament satellites. These are regular tournaments that also grant access to the High School, University, or Masters level of The League to the top 20 players (top 14 for Masters). If you are going to invest the time to compete for the freeroll leaderboards, it's clearly better to compete for a share of $15,300 instead of $1,218!

Maximizing Stars Rewards

Regardless of whether you are a net depositor, or a grinder who is earning as little as 5% rakeback, there are a few things you can do to make sure you get the most from the Stars Rewards program:

  1. Try to use up your full boost every day. You get a new boost 8 hours after you complete your current one, so the last thing you want to do is quit playing for the day with just a few points left on your current boost. Instead, make sure you clear your boost, and then you will have a new boost when you next log in. If you are a very low limit player, it is actually possible to always have a boost active, which means that you are earning each chest for half the cost!
  2. Consider playing two sessions each day, 8 hours apart. If you can easily re-arrange your schedule to instead play two sessions a day, then you can double your numbers of boosts. You can even try to play 3 sessions a day, but this will get complicated, because the start times will keep getting later and later (since it will take time before you clear each boost, which delays when you receive your next boost). If your sessions are normally 8+ hours, then you can also earn and clear 2 boosts/day.
  3. Make deposits more frequently and withdrawals less often. We are not 100% sure on this one. However, the Stars Rewards program is based on your "playing profile". The largest contributing factor is whether you are a net depositor or net withdrawer (i.e. whether you win or lose). However, we have no idea what sort of time frame this calculation takes into account, so it is entirely possible that you can earn a better reward point / boost profile by increasing your depositing frequency (even if you are a net withdrawer) and reducing your withdrawal frequency. Play around with this and see if you can figure out an ideal schedule.

The Deal

Whenever you open a Stars Rewards chest, you will frequently receive Stars Coins. These can be exchanged for cash at a rate of 100 for $1. That is, each Stars Coin is worth 1¢.

However, you often get more value from your Stars Coins with The Deal. The Deal allows you to wager either 7 or 70 Stars Coins in an attempt to win a prize. Unless the Jackpot is over $270,000, you should only ever wager 7 Stars Coins once every 12 hours. As long as the jackpot is less than $270,000, the weighted average of the prizes you can win from The Deal is less than the value of exchanging Stars Coins directly for cash. However, if someone wins the Jackpot, then anyone who played The Deal in the previous 12 hours shares in 50% of the jackpot. This increases the value of the 7 wagered Star Coins above 7¢. However, since the jackpot is divided by the number of players, and not by the number of times you played, there is no advantage in playing more than once, or in wagering 70 Stars Coins.

Once the jackpot reaches $270,000, the average weighted value of Star Coins wagered on The Deal becomes greater than 1¢. However, you still may not want to expend your Stars Coins in this manner, because you are gambling a guaranteed 7 or 70¢ in the hopes of a huge payday. When wagering 7 SC, you need to make a Royal Flush in 5 cards (0.00015% chance), and that just gives you the opportunity to spin for the Jackpot prize, with just a 1 in 8 chance of hitting the jackpot. When wagering 70 SC, you can also spin for the jackpot if you make a Straight Flush (0.00154% total chance).
