      This maybe a retarded question but I recently recieved a second starting capital for Full Tilt. Does that $50 count as the first deposit at or can I, once the PS bonus is cleared move my roll from stars to tilt to claim the first deposit bonus?

      I really can't see any point in playing micros at stars when every hand I play there is costing me rakeback from full tilt.

      You can still get the deposit bonus in addition to the second starting capital. At least that is how it has worked on other sites so I would be pretty confident it will be the same in this case.

      Trust this helps. :f_cool:

      Hi s1ndr0me,

      Congrats on your "100" my friend :P

      Yes, whilst I'm not an Admin, I do work closely with them and I also play on Full Tilt on a daily basis/write a lot of the Important sticky stuff for Full Tilt board.

      I can confirm that Waiboy is rarely (if ever) wrong ;) Full Tilt recently changed the criteria, forgive me for copying/pasting rather than writing out again:

      Previously:
      PS150 provided you with $50 starting capital and a $50 first deposit matching bonus (your first deposit being the PokerStrategy $50).
      Having provided you with a matching $50, Full Tilt didn't usually provide you with any further matching bonus when depositing your own funds.

      New Rule:
      PS150 will provide you with the $50 starting capital, but no inital bonus.
      You will however receive 100% matching of your own first deposit up to a maximum bonus of $600.
      Best regards,


      Bart

      actually re-reading that. When I got the $50 starting capital I also got the $50 bonus. So maybe it's not such good news.... bugger

      nevermind I'll still shift my money from pokerstars regardless.

      Still worth an email to Full Tilt support team when you do move across.

      I have heard of some members (unfortuately not all) being allowed a matching bonus anyway. Seems to be down to their decretion and obviously they can say no, but worth a try, good luck ;)

      Shame, it turned out to be a no-no

      "Hello *****,

For your bonus money to accrue, you must earn a certain number of Full Tilt Points (FTPs).
