Poker Room Reviews
Free Poker Rooms
FullTilt.com is one of the world’s most recognizable poker rooms in the industry. They have developed a strong player base by providing not only the highest staked games online but the widest selection for player’s to choose from. They provide satellites to live events, huge guaranteed payment tournaments scheduled every hour and of course one of their key aspects that attract so many players – professional players who can be found playing online any time of the day. FullTilt.com is fully licensed and regulated in Aruba, and has a reputation for complete financial security and fair gaming.
The competition at FullTilt.com is one of the strongest in varying degrees of skill. The room is well known for Full Tilt Pros, such as Gus Hansen, Tom “Durrrr” Dwan, and Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom, who play some ultra high stakes poker. These are not the only players found online. Full Tilt attracts every skill level and every type of player across the world which makes them one of the most diversified rooms in online poker for competitiveness.
Ring games are highly popular due to the spread in selection. FullTilt.com is one of the few sites to offer mixed games but what has set them apart from all other rooms is they have taken the traditional mixed line up of Razz and HORSE to the next level by adding H.A. and H.O.S.E. This is on top of the regular ring games you would expect to find such as Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi Lo, Stud, Stud Hi Lo and 5 Card. Due to the high volume of traffic the room sees in both on and off peak hours you can expect to see each of these game varieties in full swing. This is one of the aspects that has helped Full Tilt attract so many players – the never ending supply of active tables. Full Tilt takes a rake of 5% which is comparable to the industry standard and is capped at $3. They do support the no flop no drop rule which means you will never contribute to the rake if the flop was not seen.
Full Tilt has always been competitive in every aspect of their room and the sign up bonus is no different. All new players are entitled to a 100% match up to $600. This bonus is released based around your game play at any of the real money tournaments or real money ring games. The bonus is cleared at a rate of 160FPP/$10 in bonus dollars. Your bonus will be divided into 5 equal payments with and released to one at a time once you have earned enough comp points. For example if your first deposit is $50 than your bonus will be released in increments of $10. Players can also use their comp points at the Full Tilt Store and entry into point tournaments.
The Full Tilt software is unique and does not branch out to other networks which means you will only be playing with players from Full Tilt. It is available for Mac players and runs at optimal speed consistently. Players will have access to in lobby stats such as pre-flop percentage, hands per hour and average chip stack. One thing I do like is the detail that has gone into the in-lobby filter which allows you to specifically select which games you want to play and at what stake. This makes navigating the menu a snap. Something else you will notice about the lobby is a few of the ring tables are highlighted in red. This means that one of the Full Tilt pro players is seated and playing. You do have the option to not only watch these games but talk with the pros while they are playing. The tables are very fast, well structured and clear graphics. They feature the same statistics you would expect from a poker room but one added benefit is the playback feature. In the left hand side of the screen you can choose to review the last hand played and FullTilt equips this option with an instant animated replay. Players can multi table up to eight tables at once with resizing of windows and cascading tiles easily incorporated making multi tabling seamless at FullTilt.com
