Full Tilt Poker is re-launching on November 6th after a deal was struck with The Rational Group (Who operate worldwide poker site Pokerstars) and the US DoJ which includes the acquisition of all of Full Tilts assets and the re-payment of all non-US player funds. Full Tilt aims to bring their world class standard of online poker through their innovative software back to the world of online poker.
The big day for Full Tilt was on the 6th of November, however the big question now on many peoples lips is, “What’s going to keep the players at full tilt?” after the re-launch.
Well, a recent press release shows that Full Tilt is aiming to keep players back at their tables with a series of deals over the sites re-opening week; dubbed: Deal Me In.
The first part of this deal blitz is a series of Free-Rolls with up to $250k in collective prizes. These tournaments aim to run every day for the sites first full week (until November 11); with tournaments every day and a massive blowout on the final day with 10 separate tournaments, each with $10k in prize money.
Full Tilts player points’ are going to be paramount to the sites VIP scheme with the new changes coming into place. An old favourite of the site: Happy Hour is coming back, in which players can earn double player points during the time allocated. During the first week, there is going to be “Around the clock” coverage of Happy Hour in different games, encouraging players to sample some of the other flavours of poker.
Another deal for players is the ability to turn points into cash, by purchasing tournament tickets to events. During the opening week, these tickets will be at a discount to players, allowing them to enter into larger tournaments for a fraction of the price.
Finally, the biggest part of the Deal Me In press release is the announcement that all real money players will be offered a bonus package, $200 minimum and a free ‘Rush Poker Ring’ ticket for entry into a tournament. In another piece of news, the package to players will also be available for new players, in addition to the welcome bonus they would normally receive.
All of these deals sound very appealing, and it is certainly going to catch player’s eyes as they re-enter the new site and access their long awaited account funds.
