Full Tilt Poker Review

Click here for $600 Sign-Up Bonus, 100% Match

What a bonus! If you sign up at Full Tilt Poker for no other reason, then do it for this: 100% up to $600. Even if you lose 2/3 of it before you meet the wagering requirements, you still walk away with $200 (above and beyond your initial deposit!).

Full Tilt Online Poker is another celebrity favorite (Erick Lindgren, Howard Lederer, Phil Ivey and more!) and is it any wonder? The pros themselves designed it! In fact, they like it here so much that 10 of the world's best poker players play here - exclusively! Yes, play poker against Jennifer Harman and Erik Seidel immediately after having taken lessons from Phil Gordon and Clonie Gowan. If you can't learn to play great here, where can you?

Plus, Full Tilt Poker is focused on fun! While their avatars aren't the 3-D C.G. type so prevalent elsewhere, the Full Tilt folks have come up with some hysterical, emote-able characters (like bulldogs, sharks, clowns, monkeys, maitre d's, and Chris "Jesus" Ferguson), and exotic background themes.

One feature we found while compiling our Full Tilt Poker Review that we haven't seen on any other site is "Sit Anywhere" allowing you to force other players to shift seats so that you can sit in wherever you like, and then "Auto Center" which rotates the table to place you in the bottom center, the easiest spot from which to follow the game on your computer screen.

They've also got a great game of Razz going here too - not that easy to find. You gotta try it; it's just too fun here to pass up.
