Full Tilt Goes Back to Black

Full Tilt Goes Back to Black

Thursday, 28 March 2013

Full Tilt’s much loved Black Card loyalty scheme is set to return in the next few weeks according to a statement from the online poker room, yesterday.

In an effort to restore its status as one of the largest sites in the world, Full Tilt is seemingly going against its previous assertions that high volume grinders weren’t their main priority.

Indeed, after bringing in a new in-house loyalty and rakeback scheme, it looked like Full Tilt were content to offer a more universal reward system to a wider range of players.

However, the reintroduction of the Black Card system will see top ranking grinders earn up to 40% in weekly rakeback as well as the ability to instantly convert FTP points to cash.

To add another layer of sweetness to the deal, Full Tilt will also be offering six month “sponsorship” packages to successful players. While the full details of this bonus haven’t been decided, it’s likely that it will entail some sort of staking arrangement for the games of their choice.

By far the most interesting announcement, though, is a VIP amnesty. In a bid to coax grinders away from their current sites, Full Tilt is willing to offer top status to anyone who can prove they are a top VIP on another site. By sending a screenshot proving their VIP status to BlackCard@fulltiltpoker.com, players will automatically be put on the BlackCard programme in April.
