Opening it’s doors in 2004, Full Tilt Poker is the online home to some of the most respected poker players in the world. With design input from the pro players, the Full Tilt software helps make playing and learning to play online poker games a pleasurable experience.
Full Tilt’s roster of 13 pro players and many more ‘friends of Full Tilt’ play at the site often at all limits, even play money. You can learn, chat and play with the pros at Full Tilt Poker using either a PC or Mac.
Full Tilt Poker Promotions
Full Tilt’s promotions are usually pretty awesome. They always have a few different promotions running, often involving the chance to win live poker tournament entries. With so many pro players endorsing the site, there’s always the chance to match up against the pros at the tables too.
Leading up to the World Series of Poker*, Full Tilt is running ‘Main Event Mania’ and giving away a guaranteed 100 seats to the $10,000 WSOP main event in Las Vegas this July. Full details of this promotion can be found at the Full Tilt Poker website.
Full Tilt Poker bonus code MPC600
Full Tilt is offering Marawapokerclub.com visitors a very generous 100% up to $600 bonus. It is released in increments of $5 as you play and earn Full Tilt Poker points. So if you deposited $100, you would receive 20 x $5 in bonus money as you earn points for your play.
Full Tilt Poker Available Games
Full Tilt offers Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo and Razz in the poker room. They also run mixed games of HORSE (Holdem, Omaha, Razz, 7 Stud, 7 Stud Hi/Lo) and HOSE where the game changes to a different poker flavor every 10 hands.
That’s a good variety of games and H.O.R.S.E. is something not many sites offer, but we think they should spread at least one draw game at such a big site.
Full Tilt Poker Software features
Full Tilt is a standalone poker room, meaning that they are the only brand to use their poker software. Their software was developed in-house by the Tiltware team and was upgraded in 2006 to the version in operation now. Full Tilt have done a great job of constantly improving their software and keeping everything looking very professional and easy to use.
When you play at a Full Tilt poker table, you are able to choose not just a cartoon avatar, but also it’s emotion. You can be Happy, Sad, Angry or Confused. I like to use the happy Donkey… Because that’s just how I roll…
Recently the software was upgraded to allow players to re-size the tables, which is a great feature. My favorite software feature at Full Tilt is the ease of finding related satellite tournaments. All tournaments are color coded and the higher buyin tournaments list which smaller satellites are available within the toutnament lobby. This makes it very easy to find & play in smaller satellites and work your way up to the big tournaments.
Last but definitely not least, Full Tilt offers the best Apple Mac software available as a seperate download.
