How to Earn Your Added Bonus
Get your Added Bonus money by earning Full Tilt Points in any real-money game on Full Tilt Poker
, including our revolutionary poker format: Rush Poker*.
Once you’ve accepted your Added Bonus offer, you’ll have 21 days
to release your bonus money by earning the required number of Full Tilt Points. You’ll clear $0.04 of your bonus for every Full Tilt Point you earn, and your bonus money will be paid out in 10% increments, with a maximum increment of $20.
For example: if you receive a $20 bonus offer, your bonus money will be paid out in $2 increments. You’ll need to earn 50 Full Tilt Points per $2 increment
, and a total of 500 Full Tilt Points to release your entire $20 bonus.
Please note that bonus points earned during Happy Hour or via Black Card membership do not count towards The Added Bonus.
Earn Rush Poker* Ring Game Tickets
In addition to your Added Bonus money, you will also get Rush Poker* Ring Game Tickets based on the bonus increments you earn. Along with the first bonus increment, you will receive one Ring Game Ticket with a value equal to the increment. Clear 40% of your Added Bonus and receive a further Ring Game Ticket. Clear the entire Added Bonus to receive a third Rush Poker* Ring Game Ticket.
For example: if you receive a $20 bonus offer, earn your first $2 increment and you will also receive one $2 Rush Poker* Ring Game Ticket. Earn $8 of your bonus and receive a total of two $2 Ring Game Tickets. Earn the entire $20 bonus and you will receive a total of three $2 Rush Poker* Ring Game Tickets in addition to your $20.
Ring Game Tickets will be credited to your account when the full bonus is cleared or at the end of the bonus period, whichever comes first
You can keep track of your Added Bonus status by going to the Cashier in the Full Tilt Poker game
lobby, then clicking the Bonus Account
Ring Game Tickets have a number of properties that determine how you release its cash value to your real-money balance:
A ticket’s Current Value is its latest cash value.
For example, a $100 Ring Game Ticket starts with a Current Value of $100. You buy-in to a ring game for $25, which you increase to $50. When you stand up, your Ring Game Ticket is now worth $125 (the unused $75, plus the $50 you stood up with). The ticket’s Current Value is now $125.
FTP Release Value
A ticket’s FTP Release Value is the target number of Full Tilt Points you must earn to unlock the cash value of a ticket. Only Full Tilt Points you earn at ring game tables where you buy-in with your ticket count towards the FTP Release Value.
Note: Bonus Full Tilt Points do not count towards the FTP Release Value.
The final cash value of the ticket will be released to your real-money account at the conclusion of the hand where you reach the FTP Release Value. Your ticket will also be expired and removed from your balance.
A ticket’s Max Value is the maximum value that a ticket can be worth when not in play.
If a ticket’s Current Value is greater than its Max Value when you stand up from a table, the Current Value will be reset equal to the Max Value and the excess cash value credited to your real-money account.
For example, your Ring Game Ticket has a Max Value of $500. You begin a session with your ticket worth $400 and you increase it to $600. When you stand up from your seat, the ticket’s Current Value is reset to $500 (equal to the Max Value) and $100 is credited to your real-money account.
A ticket’s Minimum Threshold is the minimum value that a ticket can be worth when not in play.
If a ticket’s Current Value is less than its Minimum Threshold when you stand up from a table, the Current Value will be credited to your real-money account and the ticket expired.
For example, if your Ring Game Ticket has a Minimum Threshold of $2 and you stand up from a table with its Current Value at $1, we will credit your real-money account with $1 and expire the ticket.
Note that every Ring Game Ticket has an expiry date. Please check it carefully to ensure you get full use from your ticket.
You can check the current balance of your Tickets, and any of their properties, by visiting the Cashier
in the game software and selecting View Tickets
