New Full Tilt Poker members making their first initial deposit are eligible for the Full Tilt Poker bonus, which matches the amount of the player's deposit 100%, up to $600. As with any other
, in order to convert the bonus into useful cash, a player must engage in real money
games. As points are earned, Full Tilt Poker converts the bonus into cash. In addition, players keep the points they have earned, which can be used to purchase items from the Full Tilt Poker store, or to gain entry into select freeroll tournaments.
To make a deposit, open the Full Tilt Poker software client and log in. Then click the big, red Cashier button. Select Make a Deposit, and Full Tilt Poker will guide the user through the rest of the process. Full Tilt Poker offers a variety of trusted, secure deposit options for transferring funds into a player's account.

Claiming the Full Tilt Poker bonus is relatively easy. All players who make their first initial deposit are instantly eligible to begin earning the sign-up bonus. The Full Tilt Poker welcome bonus is earned by accumulating Full Tilt Points (FTPs), each worth $.06. The points at Full Tilt Poker are automatically added to a player's account records every time a player participates in a raked cash game, or pays an entry fee to a Full Tilt Poker online poker tournament
One way to earn points in order to clear the Full Tilt Poker welcome bonus is to play real money ring games. Simply for being dealt into a hand in a Full Tilt Poker ring game, every player in that hand will earn one point for every $1 that is raked from the pot, regardless of which player wins the pot. Partial points are awarded in cases in which less than one dollar is raked. Each player in a Full Tilt Poker ring game can earn up to 3 points per hand.
Sit and gos and multi-table tournaments also provide players with points at Full Tilt Poker. Every dollar of entry fee payments is worth 7 Full Tilt Points (FTPs). In a $5+$.50 tournament - where $5 goes to the prize pool, and $.50 is the entry fee - a player would receive 3.5 FTPs (7x$.50=3.5). Full Tilt Poker does not put a cap on the number of points a player can receive for paying tournament entry fees, thus a $2,000+$100 tournament would earn a player 700 FTPs simply for entering the tournament.
The Full Tilt Poker bonus is automatically added to the player's bonus account upon making that first deposit at Full Tilt. As FTPs are earned, the bonus is released into the player's real money account in increments of 10% of the first deposit, or $20 (which ever is lower). If the player deposited $600 in order to receive the maximum bonus, the Full Tilt Poker bonus would be released in increments of $20.
Players will have 120 days to earn the Full Tilt Poker bonus before anything remaining in the bonus account expires. As enough points are accumulated to earn another increment of the bonus, the bonus amount will be automatically transferred into the player's Full Tilt Poker cash account; there is no need to manually transfer the cleared bonus into one's account.
In addition to the instant first deposit bonus eligibility, each player who makes their first initial deposit at Full Tilt Poker will also receive a ticket to the $100K First Deposit Freeroll tournament. The freeroll is held at regular intervals, and offers a $100,000 prize pool to further enhance players' Full Tilt Poker bankroll.
Upon completing the installation of the Full Tilt Poker download, a new member registers an account with Full Tilt Poker. Deciding to make a deposit in order to participate in real money online poker games
, the new member clicks Cashier and Make a Deposit, then chooses to deposit $200 using QuickDeposit, by eChecks. Once the deposit is complete, the new member shows $200 in their real money account, and $200 in their bonus account.
As the player participates in real money cash games, they earn 1 Full Tilt Point for every $1 that is raked from a pot. In addition, the player also earns 7 FTPs for every dollar paid in tournament entry fees. Once the player has earned 333.33 points at Full Tilt Poker, $20 is transferred from the player's bonus account into their real money account. If the player reaches 3333.33 FTPs before the 120 day deadline, the player will clear the entire $200 bonus, effectively doubling the player's first deposit amount.
Additionally, the new player will keep all of the FTPs they earn clearing their bonus. These FTPs can be used in the Full Tilt Poker store to purchase Full Tilt merchandise and accessories, or to enter exclusive online poker freeroll
tournaments in which the entry fee is paid in FTPs rather than cash.
