With less than two weeks to go now until the relaunch of the newly owned Full Tilt Poker site, they have announced some big bonuses for all existing players as well as any new ones that sign up. In fact the promotions represent a four pronged promotion bid to keep players at the site.
“Deal Me In”
Today saw Full Tilt announce their first promotion which will run during the first week of opening once the site re-launches on the 6th of November. The promotion which has been called “Deal Me In” will involve some large cash bonuses for both new and existing players, a large selection of freerolls to the tune of 250k every day until the 11th November and happy hour being extended to happy all day as it runs all the way round the clock.
The freeroll tournaments will be running each day for the first six days of the re-launch with a grand total of $250k given away for free by the site in prizes. A certain percentage of each free roll will win a place in one of 10 freerolls to be held on the Sunday in which a $10k prizepool will be given away.
Real money players will also be offered what they are calling the largest bonus package ever, this package includes a minimum of $200 and also a free ticket into a “rush poker ring game”. All existing players will receive those bonuses immediately whilst new players will first of all get a standard signing up bonus and then this one once they first play for real money.
Happy Hour Is Back…Full Time!
This was one of the favourites before the site was pulled offline; this was where players would be able to win double the amount of player points during certain periods throughout the day. However, for each of the first 6 days of the re-launch these double points will be awarded full time on a different game each day.
There will also be an opening week sale in the Full Tilt Store. Whilst they will also be using a new feature to Full Tilt which allows you to literally change up your player points for cash, this will be done by allowing players to purchase buy-ins and tickets for events with their player points. Additionally during the first week, there will be discounts on certain tickets and buy-ins.
This is all done to thank the players for being patient whilst they have gone about getting the site back up and running, whilst it is their way of apologizing on behalf of the site (though the new owners PokerStars had nothing to do with the downfall). Of course another reason would be to try and discourage players from logging in and simply withdrawing all of their funds.
