      I get a strong feeling that FT won't let me withdraw any of my BR until I make a deposit first. I can't find anything on the site which specifically says this but the withdraw page from the cashier won't let me do anything.

      Can anyone confirm? It kinda defeats the point in PS giving a free BR if they won't let you withdraw it.

      yep, for most (if not all) money transfer things (not sure of the correct term - neteller, moneybookers etc) you have to "confirm" your account by depositing through it first... with neteller you can fund your account via bank transfer, visa, mastercard etc.. quickly done and after that no hassle, you can deposit/withdraw very quickly...

      Yeah, re-read the withdraw page on the main site carefully and it's right. Guess i'll have to make a deposit through my netelller account and then take it back straight away, shouldn't be a problem with this should there?

      normally not, I did the same thing on PP, the only "problem" is that I had to send an email confirming I wanted to withdraw. Was done in less than a day as far as I remember

      Yeah i had the same issue, I asked FTP support about it. Here is the reponse:

      Hello Kamen,

      Thank you for contacting Full Tilt Poker Support.

      For your security, we cannot process withdrawals to your payment
      processor account unless it has been used to make a successful deposit
      on our site in the past.

      To make a withdrawal to your processor account, you will need to make a
      successful deposit first through the Cashier window in the game.

      Once your deposit has gone through, simply request a new withdrawal and
      we will be able to process it back to your processor account.

      You could also request a withdrawal via check if you like, for more
      information on this option, please feel free to browse the following
      link.

      Thanks in advance for your cooperation. If you have any other questions,
      please feel free to email us. We're always here to help.

      Regards,

      Matthew G

      Be careful if you still have some active bonuses, as depositing and witdrawing while the bonus is active usually nullifies it ;)
