Following the success of PokerStars’ very extensive range of games, Amaya Gaming have clearly realised the key to a good poker site are the games themselves. Luckily for us, this means that they’ve offered a vast array of games at Full Tilt too.
In addition to traditional Hold’em and Omaha games, Full Tilt offers a variety of different forms you can play these games in and also several other poker variants, including Badugi, Corchevel and Irish Poker.
Full Tilt is also the originator of Rush poker. Instead of being tied to your chair throughout the game, the quick fold button allows you to move on to a new table with new players and new cards.
Still don’t like your hand? You can quick fold as many times as you like. This unique fast paced format makes bonuses very accessible and the chance to make your way through the VIP scheme quickly.

Bonuses and Promotions
Full Tilt offers all players a 100% first deposit match, of up to £600. This bonus can be accessed by playing real money games and accumulating Full Tilt Points. You receive £1 of your bonus with every 25 points you earn. As your points pile up, the bonus cash is released in increments of £10. So to release your first bonus you must earn 250 Full Tilt Points.
You do, however, get to keep the points you’ve acquired, which can go towards things like tournament tickets. It’s worth noting that to receive this bonus you must choose to opt in within 60 days of your deposit. After this, you have another 60 days to earn your bonus amount.
Full Tilt is also offering all new players a free £15 chip with no deposit required. The casino chip can be used to play in all real-money casino games. Once you opt in to this promotion, you have 14 days to earn 500 Full Tilt points, after which you can convert the chip to cash.
In addition to these bonuses, Full Tilt hosts a wide selection of weekly promotions which help you earn Full Tilt points and progress in their VIP scheme, ‘Edge’.
Full Tilt offer a great selection of ways to deposit and withdraw your money:
- Debit/Credit Cards – Visa, Mastercard and Entropay are all accepted
- E-Wallets – Neteller and Skrill
- Prepaid Cards – Ukash, Paysafecard
- Wire transfer
- Cheques can be sent to players as a withdrawing option
Additionally, any PokerStars players can transfer money between their accounts.
Full Tilt’s software is second to none, graphically and in it’s functionality too. Both the downloadable software and the app work seamlessly and glide through every move quickly and easily. In the downloadable software there are nice features such as being able to change your background, avatar and show emotions.
Following suit from PokerStars, the Full Tilt app works flawlessly and is consistent both on iOS and Android devices. You can open an account through the app, deposit and withdraw. The app is also updated frequently, meaning any glitches are instantly fixed and new features are added all the time.
The app is free to download and can be found in the App Store and via Google Play.
Full Tilt’s support system is where the site really lets itself down. It doesn’t provide live chat and to add insult to injury, there’s also no contact number available. We ran into this same disappointment when we reviewed PokerStars, so it seems like it’s standard practice for the Rational Group brand; here’s to hoping this is something Amaya improve upon.
Although it’s less than ideal, Full Tilt do offer a very comprehensive FAQ section. This means that hopefully you shouldn’t need to contact them too often and if needs be there is an option to email their support staff.

Full Tilt Poker has set a hard to beat standard. With a winning formula already set out by it’s big brother PokerStars, we can only see Full Tilt going from strength to strength.
Apart from a disappointing support service, we really have no other complaints. The app’s functionality serves as testament to the brand; with amazing functionality, the bar’s set pretty high for other mobile poker sites.
- Beautiful high quality graphics
- Lucrative bonuses and promotions
- Accessible VIP Scheme
- Accommodates several depositing methods
- Trustworthy brand
- Poor support system
