      OK so I've never played at full tilt before. I made an account 2 days ago to check out their "famous" software.

      I was wondering if I transfer money from pokerstars, will i still be eligible for the first deposit bonus at full tilt?

      Also, what's with this deal me in bonus?

      Am I eligible for this?

      Does this stack with FDB?

      I've transferred money from tilt to stars just to see how it goes
      And i magically got this email :

      Your recent transfer from Full Tilt Poker made you eligible for the "Stars600" deposit bonus. Please refer to http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/promotions/bonus/ for complete details of this promotion. Regards The PokerStars Team



      i check the stars cashier -> bonus and see a bonus waiting :)
      So i bet it works vice versa.

      ahhh icic so if i transfer from stars to tilt, that will count as a deposit and activate my bonus?

      In that case i think i will wait untill

      #1 Huds work at FullTilt.
      #2 I have more then my current $135 bankroll to transfer
      #3 I find out what the deal me in bonus is all about and if it stacks with the FDB

      Thanks for your help, still wondering what the deal me in bonus is all about, and if it works with the first deposit bonus

      I could, but I have no idea when I will be transferring, I don't know when HEM2 huds will be working on full tilt and I'd like to wait for that before I transfer.

      Also I'd like to wait until I have at least a $200 bankroll because I want to get the most of my FDB, and that could take a month or more depending on how often I play!

      But it is my understanding that the transfer is counted as a first deposit, if you have never done so before. I could be wrong.

      Update,

      Transfer from Stars to FTP and vica versa does infact count towards bonus if it is the first time you are transferring
      If you transfer from FTP to stars you have to email stars
      The other way is done automatically

      Hi,
      I'm also interested to know whether a transfer from Stars to FTP qualifies for the First Deposit Bonus. Did anyone ever find out for sure? The thread has gone kind of quiet.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Yes it does as long as its your first deposit
      Confirmed from FTP support


      Reply from FTP when I asked them

      Thank you for your email.

      If you use the Inter-site transfer feature to transfer funds from your PokerStars account to your Full Tilt Poker account, these are treated as real money deposits.

      Make up to three deposits, Inter-site transfers or a combination of both within 60 days, and we’ll match them all dollar-for-dollar, up to a maximum bonus of $600.

      Your bonus clears at the rate of $1 for every 25 Full Tilt Points earned; to release a bonus increment of $10, you need to earn 250 Full Tilt Points, just by playing your favorite real-money games. You also get to keep the points you accumulate, which can be exchanged for items in the Full Tilt Store, a variety of Tournament Tickets and Ring Game Tickets, or entry to exclusive satellite tournaments.
