quill18: Full Tilt Poker Promo

(I'm not a shill and the links below are all free of referral codes.)

Full Tilt Poker is running a promo right now called Take 2. There are two parts to it, but it revolves around playing at two (or more) ring games at the same time. That is to say, regular cash games and not tournaments.

The first part is that you earn double Full Tilt Points at each table. (Points can be used for entry to some tournaments and also to buy various goodies.)

The second part is that if you do this for at least 5 days (in September), you get $5. If you do it at least 10, you get $15. 15 gets you $25 and 25 gets you $50.

I've read the rules a few times because it seemed too good to be true...but this looks like it really is easy money.

To qualify, you need to earn at least 1 Full Tilt Point at each table. How long this will take will depend on the limits at which you play. (It only takes a couple minutes to get one or more playing at the .10/.25 NL games.) You can also play during the various Happy Hours and earn points twice as fast.

Please note that if you are interested in STARTING to play at Full Tilt Poker, I'd be very happy to do a Refer-a-Friend with you, which could earn us both over $100 in cash bonus -- and you would still get to take advantage of FTP's 100% First Deposit Bonus. If interested, I need your email address. You can send it to martin - at - simaltech - dot - com. (I'm not a shill, but I'm not allergic to free money either.)

Thanks, this is of interest.

Though the problem I have with Full Tilt is that I can't get rakeback as I signed up years ago through some partner deal that I have no idea who it was. Kinda annoying.

Yeah, I find that kind of crap so stupid. Rakeback is so important and long-term that it's ridiculous to lose it just because you signed up "wrong". Surely, if you are a fairly active player, these sites must have SOME way to rectify this?

It's kinda jerky otherwise.

On the other hand, I can understand affiliate sites getting pissy if players can get rakeback without going through them. But the end result is that everyone loses:
- Poker site doesn't get an active player
- Affiliate gets nothing
- Player can't take advantage of a good deal

I'm equally confused at sites that don't have re-deposit bonuses. They're just asking for at least a temporary loss of the player to a site that's offering 100% or more for a first-time bonus.

I kinda understand it with sign-up affliates. However, it's been so long, I don't even know who it was I signed up through (and no-one at FT can tell me), so I can't even go back to source, see if there's a Rakeback structure in place now, or get released.

To be honest, I'm not active enough for any site to really care about my action. I just like to the benefit of a few bucks rakeback every month from Rakebrain.

meganisla: re:

Some poker guides are trying to mislead you by claiming to offer free rolls exceeding $9000 when they are in fact simply listing the standard weekly or monthly Full Tilt Poker free rolls which are open to all players and bonus codes ~advergaming

Take 2 = easy money. Just a great way for them to generate rake/ get more people(small time grinders) playing longer/ more tables. They should run it all the time:)Helps bump people up.
