At Full Tilt, you can take advantage of a special bonus offer for casino games only in addition to the normal, poker-only bonus.
First Deposit Bonus
The Bonus is cleared by earning StarsCoin, which you will earn through your casino play.
Enter the Bonus code CASINO to get this Bonus when making a deposit of $10 or more. The way this bonus works is somewhat unusual: Your deposit will be debited from your account, and an amount equal to the size of your deposit plus 200% of your deposit will be credited to you in bonus funds, up to a maximum total of $400. For instance, if you deposit $50, then the $50 will be removed from your account, and you will instead receive $150 in bonus funds. Put $134 into your account to achieve the maximum possible bonus amount of $266, and you’ll begin playing with $400.
The Bonus is cleared at a rate of $1 for every 3 StarsCoin earned. You must complete this wagering requirement within 28 days in order to convert your bonus and any winnings into real cash, which you can withdraw.
The best part is that unlike many other online casinos, Full Tilt’s Bonus can be played on almost all games. The only exceptions are Live Roulette, which cannot be played with bonus funds, and bets on other Roulette games, which will not count if the bets covers 65% or more of the playfield.
Different games award StarsCoin at varying rates. Slot machines tend to issue them more quickly while it will take a long time to clear your bonus with certain table games, like Blackjack.
Activating Your $600 Bonus
As mentioned earlier, you must enter the Full Tilt bonus code CASINO when making a deposit to qualify for this bonus. You can only take advantage of the bonus if you have never played in the Full Tilt Casino for real money before.
Wagering Requirements & Terms (Bonus Clearing)
After opting in, players have 28 days to earn the entire Bonus. Since the bonus is released all at once, you must collect the required total of StarsCoin or else your efforts will have been in vain.
You can check the progress of your Bonus and the expiration period easily depending on the hardware you’re using:
- In the desktop client, go to “Cashier” -> “My Bonus Status”
- Within the web interface, select “Account” -> “Instant Bonuses”
- On your mobile Android device, choose “Menu” -> “Settings & Tools” -> “Account” -> “My Bonuses”
- On your mobile iOS device, hit “More” -> “Settings & Tools” -> “Account” -> “My Bonuses”
Each Casino game will earn players different amounts of Full Tilt Points. Below you can see the Point earning rate for popular games and how it relates to clearing the Bonus.
European Blackjack will earn you 1 StarsCoin for every $91 wagered. With a clearing rate of $1 for every 3 StarsCoin, your effective WR is 273 times the sum of your deposit and bonus. Clearing the full $400 deposit + bonus will require $109,200 (273*$400) to be wagered.
Atlantic City Blackjack
Playing Atlantic City Blackjack will earn you 1 StarsCoin for every $71 wagered, making your playthrough total equivalent to 213 times the combined total of your deposit and bonus. So clearing the entire $400 offer requires $85,200 (213*$400) to be wagered.
Premium Atlantic City Blackjack
Premium Atlantic City Blackjack will earn you 1 StarsCoin for every $103 wagered. This means your wagering commitment will be 309 times the size of your bonus plus your deposit. You will have to place bets totaling $123,600 (309*$400) to clear the full $400 of your maximum deposit + bonus.
Double Deck Atlantic City Blackjack
Double Deck Blackjack variants are the least friendly when it comes to earning StarsCoin. Both Double Deck Atlantic City Blackjack and regular Double Deck Blackjack demand $145 in wagers to get a single StarsCoin. This means your wagering requirement is a whopping 435 times the sum of your deposit and bonus funds. Clearing the highest possible $266 Bonus along with your deposit amount will require $174,000 (435*$400) to be wagered.
Classic Blackjack is the most charitable form of blackjack for the purposes of bonus clearing at Full Tilt Casino except for Live Blackjack. You will earn 1 StarsCoin for every $54 wagered in this blackjack format, for a total requirement of bets equal to 162 times the size of your deposit + bonus. Collecting the full $266 possible requires 64,800 ($162*$400) to be wagered.
Unfortunately, Full Tilt Casino doesn’t offer Craps.
Currently, Full Tilt Poker offers two forms of Roulette (apart from Live Roulette, which is excluded from being played with bonus funds): Roulette and Double Ball Roulette. In either game, you’ll collect one StarsCoin for every $12 you put at risk, leading to a wagering requirement of 36 times the total of your deposit and bonus. Earning out the entire maximum $400 bonus plus deposit will therefore require $14,400. Note that bets that cover 65% or more of the table will instead award you 0 StarsCoin, so they won’t help you at all towards clearing your bonus.
Full Tilt Casino has a wide variety of Slots, all of which award you with StarsCoin at rates varying between 1 StarsCoin per $4 wagered and 1 StarsCoin for every $15 bet.
At the low end of the possibilities, you’ll only have to place bets to the tune of 12 times the size of your deposit and bonus combined. This leads to a total wagering requirement of just $4,800 ($400*12) for the maximum $400 deposit + bonus value.
Even at the more stingy slots (in terms of StarsCoin issuance), you’ll have to place bets amounting to 45 times the sum of your bonus and deposit, a very fair requirement. For the highest possible bonus+deposit total of $400, the wagering total you’ll have to meet is $18,000 ($400*45).
Full Tilt Casino offers five types of Video Poker: Double Bonus, Double Double Bonus, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker and Super Jackpot. Of these few varieties, Joker Poker is the best for bonus-clearing purposes. When you opt to try your hand at Joker Poker, you’ll receive a StarsCoin every time you wager $30. Your effective WR is thus 90x (deposit + bonus). To comply with the rules of the maximum $400 offer, you’d have to bet ($400*90) = $36,000.
The rates of StarCoin accrual in the other formats of video poker range from 1 Coin per $31 bet to 1 Coin per $70 bet, leading to effective WRs of between 93 and 210 times the total of your deposit and bonus amounts.
Full Tilt Casino offers a great range of Live Dealer Casino games, which include tables ranging from low stakes to premium tables. Blackjack tables allow bets ranging from $2 to $1,000, along with a special VIP table that allows bets of up to $2,500. Roulette and Casino Hold’em tables generally offer bets in the $0.50 to $1,000 range; however, VIP tables which allow bets of up to $2,500 are also available. There are currently only two tables available for baccarat, a regular table with bets ranging from $1 to $100 and a VIP table where bets range from $25 to $2,500. You’ll also find Caribbean Stud Poker and Three Card Poker being spread.
Both the regular and VIP Live Dealer Baccarat tables offer players 1 StarsCoin for every $30 wagered. With the Bonus clearing rate at 3 StarsCoin for every dollar, you will need to wager a total of $36,000 ($30*3*$400) to clear the entire $400 Bonus and deposit. This works out to a WR of 90x the sum of your bonus + deposit.
Live Dealer Blackjack tables offer players 1 StarsCoin for every $44 wagered, which is better than any of the regular Blackjack rates. Since you need to earn 3 StarsCoin for every dollar of your deposit and bonus, you will need to wager a total of $52,800 ($44*3*$400) to clear the entire $134 deposit and $266 bonus. This is 132 times the total of the deposit plus bonus value.
Live Casino Hold’em
Live Dealer Casino Hold’em tables offer players 1 StarsCoin for every $15 wagered. With the Bonus clearing rate at $1 for every 3 StarsCoin, you will need to wager a total of $18,000 ($15*3*$400) to clear the entire $400 Bonus + deposit amount. This 45x (D+B) playthrough requirement is quite reasonable.
Live Dealer Roulette tables offer exciting gameplay, but unfortunately, they cannot be played using bonus funds. You’ll have to choose another game instead.
The StarsCoin you earn while clearing your bonus also have another purpose: You can use them to make purchases in Full Tilt’s VIP store. Keep playing even after you’ve cleared your bonus so that you can receive these desirable rewards.
There are six levels in the Full Tilt Casino VIP program: BronzeStar, ChromeStar, SilverStar, GoldStar, PlatinumStar and Supernova. Unfortunately, you cannot progress through the ranks from casino play; only play at Full Tilt Poker will count towards increasing your VIP tier.
This means that if you’re solely a casino player, you’ll be restricted to making purchases in the VIP Store that are available to the lowest rank, BronzeStar. Nevertheless, you’ll find a decent selection on offer. You can get straight cash added to your account at a rate of $25 for 2,500 StarsCoin. Poker tournament tickets, electronic gear, clothing and more await you.
There are many new and ongoing promotions happening at Full Tilt. You might find casino leaderboard competitions, special reload bonuses, prize draws and extra prizes on your winnings on certain games during specified timeframes. Make sure to check their website for all the current promotions being offered.
Additional Benefits for High Rollers/High Stakes Players
Full Tilt offers many large bet tables, including live dealer games where you can wager up to $2,500 in a single hand. If you’re look for some high stakes casino action, Full Tilt may be the best place for you to find it.
Company Overview & History
Not that long ago, Full Tilt Poker was one of the leading online poker rooms and the only true rival to PokerStars. Since Black Friday hit, Full Tilt was in serious trouble, but in a surprising turn of events, it was PokerStars parent company Rational Group who saved Full Tilt Poker and brought it back.
Now a few years later, Full Tilt has branched out into the online casino scene. At first only Blackjack and Roulette were on offer, but recently, Full Tilt has greatly expanded its range of casino games and is now offering everything from Slots to Live Dealer games.
It is not unusual to see an online casino branch out into online poker, but the opposite case, where an established online poker room successfully launched a casino platform is not that common. Full Tilt is perhaps one of the best examples of such a case.
The backbone of the Full Tilt Casino software is the same software that has always been the hallmark of Full Tilt Poker. However, the recent expansion of the Full Tilt Casino and the additions of Live Dealer tables and mobile casino platform’s prompted the company to seek partnership with established online gaming software providers.
Full Tilt Casino offers blackjack, Roulette, Slots and a variety of Live Dealer games. By far the biggest game variety is offered in Blackjack, which makes sense, since Blakcjack was the first game on offer at the Full Tilt Casino. Full Tilt offers both downloadable software and an instant play flash version, which can also be used on mobile devices.
One of the best aspects about playing casino games on Full Tilt is the community aspect. They offer multi-player blackjack and roulette games where you can play with up to 4 other players on the same table. This makes playing the games much more fun as most casinos only offer single player games which can become quite boring. You can chat with any of the players as you gamble, and congratulate others on big wins.
The Live Dealer tables are based in Latvia and the software and video streams are powered by Evolution Gaming, while the mobile platform is a product of NetEnt, which has provided numerous online casinos with exception mobile platforms.
Full Tilt offers players the standard range of Deposit options, like credit/debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, etc. One great addition to these is the option of Depositing or withdrawing money through PokerStars by pairing your accounts.
Note that transferring money to or from your PokerStars account for the first time might prompt a security check, so it may take longer to process than usual. Other than that, Neteller and Skrill remain the safest and fastest options for both Deposits and Withdrawals.
Full Tilt Casino offers 24/7 Customer Support by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Unfortunately, no phone lines or live chat supports is available.
