Software – graphics and functionality
The software at Full Tilt Poker is quick and reliable. The statistics function is nothing special but still provides useful information to the players. What makes this room fun and different are the graphic features. Before you start playing you choose an avatar, which can display different emotions during the game. You can also choose among different background settings.
Ring game and tournament traffic
Full Tilt Poker is pretty new to the market (started in July 2004), but already has decent traffic numbers. Around 1,000 real money ring game players visit this room during peak hours. The number of real money tournament players is around 2,000.
Game variety and competition
All the standard games, Hold’em, Omaha Hi and Hi Lo and 7-Card-Stud Hi and Hi-Lo can be played in this room. However, 90-95 % of the action during peak hours is in the Hold’em section. The competition at Full Tilt Poker is very tough, especially in the fixed limit games. The no-limit games are a bit easier but you still have to be a good player to make a profit.
Rakes and tournament fees
Full Tilt Poker takes out a rate that is a bit higher than the industry average. The rake is 5% and is taken frequently. Like many other poker rooms, Full Tilt Poker doesn’t rake hands where the flop isn’t seen.
Support and financial security
This room only has email support. The financial security is good.
