Bet365 is the better version of Full Tilt.
Full Tilt Poker is no longer operational. Bet365 is now the best place to play online poker for fun or for real money.
All the players that used to play at Full Tilt before they closed their doors in April 2011 have since moved to Bet365Poker.com. So if you're looking to play online poker, Bet365 is an easy choice.
Also, if you sign up today (31st January 2015) you will be able to get a 200% up to $1,000 bonus. No bonus code needed, just sign up today to get it.
When you sign up to the Full Tilt poker room (don't forget to use the referral code here), you will have a choice between the different player avatars on offer to represent you at the table whilst you play. Now, whilst these do not make a difference to how you play, it always seems tricky finding the avatar that suits you the best.
All of the avatars are very cartoon like, but it's still never easy to choose the one you like the most. It's almost like standing in the shop looking at all of the candy/chocolate bars on offer; you just don't know which to choose.
Here are all of the Full Tilt avatars for you to look at, with a few extra avatars at Full Tilt that you might not have known about.
These are all of the avatars that you get to choose from when you are signing up for an account at Full Tilt. Hopefully having all of the avatars in front of you should help you to choose which is your favorite.
The available avatars at Full Tilt changes from time to time, so there may be some new ones to add to the list, and some of these may no longer be around. Nonetheless, this is the majority of the avatars that you can choose from.
This is not a definite ranking of the most popular avatars used by players at Full Tilt, but from my experience playing at the room, these definitely seem to appear a lot more frequently at your table.
There are a load of other popular avatars, but in my opinion these seem to be the favorites amongst the players. Luckily there are now over 70 avatars available for you to choose from, so the tables are a lot more diverse than they used to be back when the room first started.
Here are the avatars of the Full Tilt Pros at the FT room. There are a fair number of custom avatars at Full Tilt Poker, but a lot of these are unknown players that you probably have never heard about before.
So here are the avatars for the most popular pro players at Full Tilt.
If you look closely, you should be able to see that Patrik Antonius' avatar looks a lot more life-like than the rest of them. I'm guessing that he didn't want to be made to look like a cartoon player, so it looks like they cut out a real life picture of him and stuck it on a cartoon body.
Patrik is also one of the newer additions to the Full Tilt avatars, and the latest ones are definitely looking more like real people as opposed to cartoons. I think I prefer the older cartoon ones though.
Did you know that you can change the facial expression of your avatar as you play? Simply right click on your avatar and you can choose from:
Here is an example of the shark with the 4 different expressions...
If you get tired of your avatar you can always change it. Simply go to:
Account > Change Avatar
and that's it! You can change your avatar as many times as you like.
My favorite avatar at Full Tilt Poker is the Frog. Don't ask me why, I just like it. I think it is far less popular than the Shark or Monkey so it is a little more unique, and it just looks great.
Saying that, the penguin is looking pretty funky too.
Here's the offender...
I think the fact that this is quite possibly the blandest Full Tilt avatar on offer makes it pretty useless. It also look far too much like a stereotypical British guy with that wooly vest and the charming expression on his face. I think if you voluntarily choose this guy as your avatar, you are leaving all you imagination for dead in a rampage to rid the world of entertaining cartoon characters.
Honestly, why would you choose it?
At the end of the day though, the choice is yours. Full Tilt give you a wide variety of avatars to choose from, so you might find plenty that you think represent you at the table the best! (Just don't choose that charming blonde guy).
