With $184 million to be distributed to what is known as rest-of-world players, Full Tilt’s new management is hoping that the majority of these players will NOT be cashing out their money when the site goes back online for real money play by November 6, even though they would be allowed to provided they submitted all necessary identification documents.
In order to make it enticing for existing customers to stay, Full Tilt are offering various promotions that include $250,000 in freerolls that will run from November 6 to 11, cash bonuses, Happy Hours, and the upcoming FTOPS tournament. All real money players can also claim a “Deal Me In Bonus” package that includes a $200 bonus plus a free ticket to a Rush Poker Ring Game.
The site will be launching for free money play on Wednesday October 31st, giving players a chance to get re-acquainted with the software. They expect a huge wave of players to be downloading and have had to increase server capacities to handle the expected demand.
Full Tilt will not be operating real-money games in the U.S., but play-money tables will be available to Americans this week.
No announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice has been made yet on when U.S. players can begin submitting claims for their Full Tilt funds that have been in limbo since the closure of the site.
