      I recently got $50 starting capital on Full Tilt and I'm also offered 100% first deposit bonus up to $600 when I make a deposit.

      Since I'm unable to deposit right now, but might be in a month or so, I'd like to know how much time I have to make a deposit and claim my bonus?

      Hey Svizac28,

      If you received your starting capital at Full Tilt Poker there is no time limit to deposit money for the first deposit bonus.

      If you have further questions do not hesitate to ask.

      Good luck on Full Tilt Poker,
      Hannes

      I created my Full Tilt account on 7 May and also recevied the free bankroll. Is there really no time limit on the first deposit bonus?

      yes, there really is no limit. I made first deposit 1,5 years after i got my starting capital and i got that bonus. Thing is that i had to contact support twice to get it.

      Hm when i click on the bonus account button in the cashier I found out that my first deposit bonus will expire at 1.1.2011. Is the first deposit bonus with pokerstrategy psvip code any different?

      Hello chessmaster1234,

      You have 120 days to clear the first deposit bonus. There would have been no difference if you have used the PSVIP code (you wouldn't have got the free $50 starting capital then).

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      Haha that would be awesome just deposit 600, withdraw it and just use your existing bankroll to earn the extra 600.

      Gotta try that. But im pretty sure that wouldnt work.

      I actually think it does. trouble is you need a pretty good bankroll to clear a $600 bonus

      I think even NL5 rush could do it. They give you like a month right?

      You have 120 days to clear the bonus.

      But there is no reason to withdraw. You can do this anyway later, when the bonus is cleared. You have a bigger bankroll and can play higher limits.

      To get the FDB do I need to enter the psvip bonus code when I deposit? Or is the bonus automatically added since I received the $50 starting capital there?

      Thanks

      Hi jonnyquest,

      The bonus will automatically be activated when you first deposit on Full Tilt Poker. Please wait until you already have the $50 starting capital to prevent overlaps.

      If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      I have some questions on the first deposit bonus:
      - the bonus is deducted from your generated rake to calculate the rakeback. Do they deduct the bonus in one time, or do they deduct when you get a part of the bonus? That would be important to know if you don't clear the whole bonus.
      - is there a calculator somewhere on the internet to calculate how many points you will get when you play x hands, at a given stake?

      As thazar already wrote the rake will be deducted when you get a part of the bonus.

      I do not know any calculator. Most of the figures in the forum are out of date because of the recent change.

      Cheers,
      Hannes

      I use the ftp odometer from fulltilt. It calculates the points as you get them . It is in your widgets in your classic lobby.

      you cannot calculate points per stake per hands in advance because it really depends on your table. A tight table will generate a lot less point than a loose table as an example.

      Yes sure. But if you play 100,000 hands you will get a quite good approximation.
