Hey ,

Here you go...

Spending Full Tilt Points (FTP’s)

Every 200 Full Tilt points spent incurs a \$1 deduction (or \$0.005 per point) from our MGR. If we purchased an item from the store for 7000FTP’s, the deduction from our MGR would be:

7000 / 200 = 35

This should not be confused with rakeback, which is the direct cost to us, the consumer. To work out how much rakeback we would lose on this purchase we need to multiply this value by 27% (in this case the actual amount of rakeback you would lose is \$9.45).

Thank you aleks,

just to make sure i understand - I would pay 81000/200 = 405 \$ + I would get 109.35 \$ less rake at the end of that week .

So basicly i will pay little over 500\$ for the monitor ? Seems a bit much considering you can get it for around 250 EUR ~ 350\$.

you won't pay over 500\$ for it

Deduction from your rake will be 405\$, so you will lose 405\$*27%=109,35\$ of your rakeback, in other words, monitor will cost you 109,35\$

EDIT: looks like i misunderstood things a bit, if you count points as money (which i never done), then yes, you pay over 500\$ for monitor
