      I just this minute logged in and this popped up on my screen. I cannot upload the image as I don't know how, haha. Here's what it says:

      YOUR BONUS OFFER

      Hi PushMeUp,

      Yes, Full Tilt are usually pretty good for giving ad hoc bonuses/promotions away. Full details in the following news item:

      Hi FTRain,

      Yes you can, but you have to clear your existing bonus by a certain date that I fail to remember at the moment.

      Full details are on their website though, just click on their promotions>Fast 50.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      Don't....use your first deposit for a bigger ammount. At least that's what I'd do. :D

      from your rake not rake back (27% or the bonus is deducted from your rakeback)

      This is a pretty short-sighted statement. The bonuses are deducted from your MGR and not your rakeback. You only get 27% of your MGR back in the form of rakeback. However when you are clearing a bonus you get 100% of the money not just 27%.

      So after a bit of math, including the fact that you still get some rakeback, it comes out to a rough equivalent of 66% rakeback while you are clearing a Full Tilt bonus.

      If I am still clearing my $600 starting capital bonus and I accept this offer will this clear first or do I have to finish clearing the starting bonus first?

      I'm not sure if you get that bonus offer if you have an active bonus. You'll get it though if you finish clearing the current one by March 13th or something like that.

      Hello rptan2000,

      You will need to clear your existing bonus by the 10th March before you can accept the new bonus.

      You can find all the details here: http://www.fulltiltpoker.com/fast-50

      Kind Regards,
      -Steve

      Thats a bit short-sighted statement too, because I get only ~33% rakeback ;)

      If you are clearing a bonus the total amount of money you get back is much larger than 33%. If you are talking about one of the illegal rakeback deals those are going away next month so ...

      Do you know I could go through the whole process of posting up some pretty charts that I got with my rakeback deal (which is exactly the same as this one just not through PS) but FT take deductions from YOUR RAKEBACK (Big Ones) when you spend FT points and also when you are clearing a bonus when I cleared my deposit bonus I got no RAKEBACK until the bonus was gone. Agreed the bonus worked out to more but still I was just warning people that they wouldn't get the rake that they expected if any at all!

      So that's my personal experience. And don't call me short sighted. I have no reason to lie, I don't even play at that poker room. Also, my RAKEBACK stands at -$20 right now... Hmm, wonder how that happens then? If they don't take your RAKEBACK.
