It’s time to do a double take on Full Tilt Poker, literally. The world’s second largest online poker site has introduced the Take 2 promotion, allowing players to earn up to $50 and double Full Tilt Points (FTPs). The promotion runs throughout the entire month of September and has had the online poker world buzzing since its recent announcement. So what is Take 2? How can you earn $50? What about those double FTPs? Let’s find out.
All you have to do is play on at least two ring game tables simultaneously on Full Tilt Poker in order to march your way towards an extra $50. You can reach four different levels of bonus cash throughout the 30 days of September and, consequently, earn a hefty bankroll. If you play on more than one ring game table for five days, you’ll earn $5. If you play for 10 days, you’ll bank an extra $10 for a total of $15. Play for 15 days and you’ll grab another $10 on top of that for a total of $25. Finally, the crowning glory is Level 4, in which you can scoop a total of $50 for 25 days of multi-table play.
Players need to earn at least one FTP at each table in order for it to count. All cash will be paid out at the end of the promotion, which would likely mean the beginning of October. Players must opt into the promotion by visiting the Full Tilt Poker Cashier, clicking on “My Promotions,” and then “Take 2.” Follow the instructions and then hit the virtual felts faster than you can say “Phil Ivey.” If you don’t opt into this promotion, you won’t be tracked. Go ahead and do it… we’ll wait.
Take 2 also allows players to earn double FTPs when they battle on more than one table. The online poker site will actually double the number of points earned. Then, you can head to the Full Tilt Store to purchase some posh gear or enter FTP buy-in tournaments and sit and gos. The sky is the limit! Bonus points will be awarded to accounts within six hours of play. Text found on Full Tilt’s website explains, “If a player plays at more than two real-money ring-game tables simultaneously during Take 2, that player will receive double points from the combination of their top two tables.” So, Full Tilt Poker will track only two tables for your reward although you might have multiple windows open.
In addition, Full Tilt explains what happens if players partake in Take 2 and Happy Hour at the same time: “If a player is participating in Take 2 at the same time that Full Tilt Poker’s Happy Hour promotion is running, they will earn the appropriate number of bonus points for each promotion.” Full Tilt explains that if a player logs 60 FTPs at one table during Happy Hour, 40 at another, and 30 at a final table, they’ll take home 230 points total, or the “standard Happy Hour” tally of 130 plus 100 Take 2 bonus FTPs. When in doubt, just ask Full Tilt’s customer support. They’re standing by to help.
Full Tilt Poker is also gearing up for the Mini installment of the 13th Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS). MiniFTOPS XIII cards will hit the air on September 9th with a $22 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament featuring a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool. There are 25 events in total, culminating in a $55 buy-in Main Event that assures at least $500,000. Satellites are running for most tournaments in what is expected to be a busy slate of events. The FTOPS XIII scheduled played out in August.
