Online Poker Room Review

0 Comment

The website of Bonus Seeker is impressively structured and a bonus service from the casino invites players. Full Tilt Poker is one of the heavy hitters in online poker.  With high volume traffic it boasts a team of over 40 world-class poker pros, including big names such as Phil Ivey, Allen Cunningham, Gus Hansen, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Erik Seidel, and Jennifer Harmon.  If you’ve made any foray into the world of online poker, you’d practically have to be living under a rock not to have heard about Full Tilt.

Cash Games

With daily player volumes in the tens of thousands you won’t struggle to find action at a site which has campaigned aggressively to establish itself in the online poker industry.  The limits cater to all bank balances, with games ranging from micro stakes to some of the highest heads-up and ring game nosebleed stakes you’ll find online. Ever wanted to watch someone drop the average working man’s entire net worth in one hand?  Full Tilt is the place to see it.

Game Variation

Full Tilt offer a healthy range of poker variants including Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha High-Lo, Five-Card Draw, Razz and draw. Game styles include No-Limit, Pot-Limit and Fixed-Limit. Shorthanded and heads up tables are available in addition to the usual full table ring game.

Tournaments

Full Tilt offers an impressively varied range of tournaments, with regular multi-table tournaments starting at low stakes to the regular weekly tournaments with cash prize pools in the hundreds of thousands.  You’ll also find a range of multi and single table Sit n Go’s which kick off with fairly decent regularity.  It’s the host of FTOPS (Full Tilt Online Poker Series) which is one of the premier online poker tournaments available.

Software

The software is excellent, sporting a stable platform and eye-candy (although somewhat kindergarten zed) graphics.  The functions are easy to use and offer variation to those who like to fiddle with their poker settings.

Support

Support is quite solid and I can speak from personal experience to the fact that issues are resolved rapidly.

Bonus

Full Tilt offer a hefty sign up bonus for new players, and are decent enough to offer frequent reload bonuses for those players who manage to scrape their cashier balance to zero.  There is a range of deposit options available with equivalent cash out facilities, adding to player convenience and security.

Players

Full Tilt offers some fairly solid players at all levels, so it’s not necessarily juicy pickings for new players.  However, at lower stakes ($1/$2 and under) you’ll find plenty of players looking off large proportions of their bankroll.  I advocate Full Tilt to the new player on the simple premise that your standard of play can’t help but improve in the midst of competent online play.  You’ll also be assisted by the Full Tilt Forum, one of the more comprehensive poker discussion forums online.

What sets Full Tilt Poker apart from the competition is the frequency with which you can observer or even interact with the FT team, with names such as Mat sow, Lindgren, Juana, and those mentioned earlier.  They are regularly involved in real time chat at the tables.  It is however, one more reason why Full Tilt Poker feels like a community rather than just another place to gamble
