Anyone else feel this way? Bonuses at full tilt are deceptive and harder to earn than stated on the surface.

All of them kind of are if you look at it that way. They say if you deposit $50 you get $50 free, they just don't tell you up front that you have to work for it and it gets distributed in small increments.

Its a great business strategy for them. They get people that see the "Free" money and they depsoit, well if they lose that money then they don't have to pay because they haven't met their requirements for the bounus to be distributed.
Also on the same note, your basically getting your money back in theory. I say this because when you play tournaments you get fee's taken out, and when you play cash games, your getting a rake taken out, so that money goes back into your bonus account.

so in a sense every $5 you contribute in rake and entry fees, you recieve that $5 back? so its really your own money that they are giving you?

Here's an idea for Full Tilt and other places with tough bonuses to clear: Deposit less. Yes, they want you to deposit more and play more rake while they put a time limit on earning the bonus. But if you deposit less, you can clear the smaller bonus quicker. Sure you get less bonus $$, but you undermine their idea of getting more rake and chancing that you won't clear it all. I've done it and it works.

Not sure what there is to complain about it is free money.

You can get up to $600 at Full Tilt, it's fantastic. Seeing as I would be playing poker anyway. It is just an added bonus, provided you play as you would normally play.

Full Tilt release their bonus in $20 Payments, So even if you don't clear it, you get some of the bonus back

In theory yes. Your going to play enough and have enought fee's or rake taken out for the poker site to make up for their $$ they are "giving" you.

As MrSticker said, deposit less, you'll get it faster.

FTP bonus is better than some in that you get small parts all along instead of having to complete it all to get any. If you have to complete it all, you have to balance what you deposit with the amount you play to be sure you can do it.
