Full Tilt Poker releases new VIP ‘black card’

Friday, 1 October 2010

Full Tilt Poker has released what is evidently its answer to PokerStars’ Supernova Elite program in the shape of the Full Tilt Black Card; which is earned by ceaseless grinding at the online tables and brings all sorts of benefits to players.

Those who receive an average of 500FTPs a day or greater over a 100-day period will automatically be sent a card in the mail. Once received, the 500FTP average has to be kept up – should a black card player drop below 500FTPs they have a 50-day period to get their average back up, allowing for holidays and days off.

The card comes with all sorts of rewards – players will receive double FTPs; entry to exclusive value added tournaments; preferential treatment at live events qualified to via Full Tilt and the ability to buy items at the Black Card store.

Fancy a BMW K 1300 S, the fastest unrestricted production sports bike in the world? Earn 4,450,000 FTPs and it’s yours. The Black Card program also allows you to redeem FTPs for cash bonuses and other items.

Overall it is slightly easier to get to Supernova Elite status on PokerStars than it is to maintain Black Card status on Full Tilt but the latter’s 27% rakeback coupled with the Iron Man bonuses make them equally profitable for a serious grinder.
