      Firstly I'd like to say what a great website this is, although I don't post I have learned a lot on the forums and it has without doubt improved my game.

      After activating my first bonus in the summer I recently recived an email from PS about getting a 2nd bonus (shown below) However the link provided doesn't really take me anywhere to activate it. Was the email just a ploy to get wandering members back on the site or is their something i'm missing in order to get the capital ? Many thanks.

      As an experienced poker player and a member of PokerStrategy.com for some time, you have been chosen as part of our promotional test group to receive a 2nd free $50 Starting Capital on Full Tilt Poker.

      Hey Buddy985,

      Great to see you posting and being active on the forums :)

      This site is just more than pokerstrategy. It's a friendly community.

      Regarding the 2nd free $50 starting capital: It's 100% Legit :s_biggrin:

      FTP is a pretty large platform in the poker world so firstly do you have an account with them? Because these 2nd chances are only open to platforms you don't already have an account with.

      I'm not 100% on the link, I remember when I got my 2nd free starting capital it was a little different so hopefully one of the CM/HM can shed some light on this for us.

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Hi Buddy985,

      Congratulations for receiving the second free $50 capital! =)

      The link should be taking you here where you can register at Full Tilt Poker with the referral code PS150 and activate your player account for real money poker.

      Then come back to the linked page and enter your Full Tilt Poker Player ID here. As soon as you have done this, we will initiate the transfer of the $50.

      You can also send your Player ID to our customer support and they will enter it for you in the system manually. Most important is that you go through our link and enter the code to be able to activate your bonus.

      I would also suggest to contact customer support and let them know in case the link in the mail doesn't work and they will be able to help you further on.

      Can you please let me know if you managed? =)

      Ingrid

      Hi guys thanks for the responses. I'm afraid I already have an account with Full Tilt so I guess that means I can't use it ? Is it possible to use it on one of the other sites I haven't signed up to ?

      Well I got it wrong, I had an account with PokerStars rather than Full Tilt. I forgot to mention in the first post that i'm also an idiot.

      Anyway I just followed the email and signed up to FT with the referal code, how long will it be for them to put the bonus in my account ?

      Cheers.

      Hi Buddy,

      Whilst some get transferred within a few hours, we always suggest allowing a couple of days.

      It can sometimes take a little longer over weekends.

      It shouldn't be too long though and the support team will notify you when it's on it's way.

      Good luck & enjoy your poker.

      Hi belayd,

      The list of all PokerStrategy partner sites where you can deposit your own funds and receive bonuses, extra VIP status etc is in this link here.

      The 2nd starting capitals are promotional, randomly allocated and cannot be specifically requested. They are poker room specific and not available if you already hold an account there. You will need to keep an eye on your emails to see if you are lucky enough to receive one.

      Good luck & best regards,


      Bart

      Hi firebullgr,

      I found your ticket =)

      Unfortunately, you forgot to state which poker room you entered the wrong username. Talking about Full Tilt, right?

      I'll correct it for you as soon as you confirm the poker room.
