Full Tilt Poker, which is all set to be launched on Nov 6, has announced that players from Belgium, Spain, France, and Denmark can now request a transfer of their FTP accounts to their PokerStars accounts. Since PokerStars, the new owner of FTP, operates online poker services in these countries, players can easily access their FTP funds from their PokerStars accounts.
Italian players will have to wait longer because PokerStars is still holding talks with the government of Italy about the best ways to refund Italian FTP players.
As of now, even poker players residing in unregulated countries can view their accounts. US players cannot view their accounts because the US federal government will reimburse them using the money already paid to it by PokerStars. Players residing in regulated countries can not only view their FTP accounts, but also start withdrawing their funds. However, they need to first pair their FTP accounts with their PokerStars accounts, and if they do not have a PokerStars account, they are required to register a real play account at PokerStars.
Meanwhile, players can start playing for fun at FTP and inform the online poker room about any bugs or technical errors in the software. Even US players are welcome to try the games for free.
When it launches on Nov 6, Full Tilt Poker will offer several attractive promotions to encourage players to keep playing for real money. The most attractive of these promotions is the Deal Me In Bonus, which not only includes bonuses, but also freerolls with prize pools as large as $10,000. As many as 10 freerolls will be run everyday.
Besides, new players can claim a first deposit cash match bonus of 100% up to $600, which can be cleared at the rate of 25 Full Tilt Points per $1 in 10 percent increments.
