Full Tilt Poker will be re-launched in less than one month and Shyam Markus, the Poker Room Manager for Full Tilt Poker, announced that the FTP rewards program will be changed. Markus announced the changes on a thread at online poker forum, TwoPlusTwo.
In the thread, Markus stated that Full Tilt Poker has been working on a reward program before PokerStars bought the company in July. The new reward system will combine several reward services including the Iron Man, the Black Card and an affiliate paid rakeback system. The new reward program is set to be introduced at some point after the site reopens on November 6th.
Markus stated: “By the time the PokerStars deal came along, most of the major work on this program was done, and it was just a matter of deciding whether or not to go with it. this was not a trivial decision, but in the end we decided that the benefits of having a unified program were worth the change. So when we re-launch on November 6th it will be without Iron Man, Black Card, or affiliate-paid rakeback.
We aren’t quite ready to give all of the details of the new rewards program, but the general idea is that it will be available to everyone, and the main benefit of the program is weekly cash payments that are based on the number of Full Tilt Points earned that week. The program tops out at paying $2.50 for every 100 Full Tilt Points earned (which works out to 25 percent).”
Markus went on to state that the transition for Iron Man and Black Card players will be rewarding, as “long-term players of both promotions will likely get a leg-up in the new program from the start.” It will be interesting to see how the program will work and if players will enjoy the new offerings.
