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 (28th 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.
Signing up to the Full Tilt Poker room is pretty straight forward. In all honestly, it should take you less than a minute to sign up for an account. If you need a quick guide to signing up, here it is...
Just so you're sure that you're at the right place, this is what the Full Tilt sign up form looks like:
The Full Tilt avatar image changes from one sign up form to another. As you can see, the avatar that was displayed on my form was the lizard looking thing. You will likely have something different. You can view all the different avatars available on the Full Tilt avatars page.
As you can see from the form, signing up to Full Tilt is pretty simple. After you download Full Tilt, you will be offered the option of creating your first account from the pop-up box in the lobby.
Make sure that you choose a good player ID when you sign up, as this cannot be changed after you're finished filling in the form. However, don't worry too much about the avatar, as that can be changed as much as you like after you start playing at the room.
When you fill in your email address, use an address that you check from time to time. Furthermore, double check that you have entered the correct email address, as Full Tilt does not ask you to enter it twice to make sure that you get it right. If you enter the wrong address, you will miss out on any promotions on offer from the room, and you will likely have trouble getting in contact with support in the future.
At the bottom of the sign up form you are asked to enter a referral code. Use the referral code FRESHBONUS when you sign up to Full Tilt, as this will ensure that you get your hands on the maximum bonus of 100% up to $600 after you make your first deposit. If you want to find out more information on this referral code, check out the homepage.
Before you click on the "Sign Me Up" button, don't forget to check the two little tick boxes at the bottom. Even the best of us can forget to tick those small boxes from time to time!
After you sign up to Full Tilt Poker, you are free to play in all of the non-money games on offer. It is advised that you give these a try so that you can get used to the software.
However, if you want to truly experience online poker at Full Tilt you are going to have to take a seat at the real money tables. You can make a deposit via one of the many deposit options available at Full Tilt, where many of which will fund your account instantly.
But whatever you decide to do, make sure that you are having fun. Best of luck at the tables.
