      ~20$/month, doesn't look like much but adds up esp once you move up or put in more volume

      Thanks.
      Can I do anything to have RakeBack in my current account?

      Some players got RB by asking full tilt support, but I wouldn't put in too much hopes into that since obviously giving away additional money when it's not necessary is not what's best for FTP.

      Hi hariseldon,

      I would strongly recommend you approach Full Tilt's own customer support team ;)

      Unfortunately in line with all other poker rooms, Full Tilt do not allow the retracking of any existing account, so you will be unable to retrack your account to PokerStrategy or receive PokerStrategy points. They have been known to allow existing customers to benefit from rakeback though.
      They will likely do this by placing you with an inhouse affiliate (please don't mention their name in this forum though :tongue: ). Whilst this affiliate doesn't provide the many benefits that PokerStrategy would (added value, freerolls, rakeraces, educational material, coaching etc), at least you would benefit from rakeback.

      PokerStrategy would always prefer to retrack you to themselves wherever possible so that you gain maximum benefit return, but as this isn't possible, they would never stand in your way of getting the next best option.

      Hope this helps, best regards,


      Bart

      I would tell you where FT gave me rakeback but I think that will breach PS rules :(

      Yes, it would be unfair to PokerStrategy to mention one of it's direct competitors in the forum and so is naturally one of the forum rules.

      Appreciate you not mentioning them Sasa ;)

      Many thanks,


      Bart

      Thanks NightFrostaSS and EagleStar88.
      It was a mistake from my part not to put the PS rakeback code.
      I opened the account believing that it would be automatic. I discovered to late that it wasn't.
      For me its a little odd that to us win the rakeback a third part is needed. But thats business.

      I believe that before receiving the first deposit bonus the rakeback isn't necessary (i am right?). But after that i will contact the FT support.
