Posted at March 29, 2005 12:05 AM in Website Reviews , by Greedy Gecko. is giving my longtime favorite site,, a severe run for its money. While Full Tilt Poker is fairly new, this fast growing site offers a wide variety of games and limits, and is brought to you by some of the biggest names in poker.

As is becoming the standard with online sites, FullTilt offers extremely low rakes on their card games. Rakes range from 0 up to a maximum of 5% of the pot. FullTilt has a "No Flop - No Drop" rake policy.

Quantity of Opponents
FullTilt is currently in the growth stage of its development. Nonetheless, at the time of this post, the site regularly has ~2k players online, with in excess of ~5k during peak hours. With a respectable number of opponents on at all times, I have yet to struggle in finding a game to my liking.

Quality of Opponents
Forums give FullTilt mixed reviews in terms of the quality of opponents. While I have found players on FullTilt to be a little tighter than those on, they are also significantly worse. With the site's popularity being derived from the litany of poker stars involved, many beginner players have flocked to FullTilt. This affords great opportunities to make reasonable money at the lower limits with minimal risk.

Games/Limits Offered
FullTilt offers Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha H/L, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud H/L and Razz. Games are offered in the Limit, Pot Limit, and No Limit format, and are geared towards all limit players, offering penny stakes through higher limit action.

FullTilt allows for a great multi-tabling experience, granting the ability to play up to 4 tables at a given time.

Customer Support
A credit to the site, I have only required interaction with customer support once for a small issue. They responded to my email within 15 minutes.

FullTilt tends to offer the most lucrative deposit bonuses on the net. While the bonus is earned at a slightly slower rate than UltimateBet, the constant availability of bonus dollars to earn makes the site extremely attractive. Additionally, you will be earning FullTilt Points as you play, which can be redeemed for merchandise or entries into real money tournament events. When you run out of your initial deposit bonus, additional bonuses are offered regularly for cash redeposits.

Cashing Out
Deposit and withdrawal options include Major credit cards, FirePay, Neteller and Epassporte are included in the banking options. I have successfully used Neteller to make numerous withdrawals without having experienced a single problem. Transactions are typically processed within 2 days.

Multi-Table Tournaments and One-Table/Two-Table Sit-N-Go Tournaments are ongoing throughout the day, allowing you to play tourneys to your heart’s content. One advantage to playing at FullTilt as compared to some of the larger, more crowded sites, is that tournament sizes remain more manageable.

As an overall package, offers many appealing elements. I play regularly on the site and would not hesitate to recommend it to new and seasoned players alike. Click on any of the links within this article or on and sign up today!
