Full Tilt Poker used to be one of the biggest poker rooms in the world while currently it is a part of the biggest poker room in the world - PokerStars. There are some good and and some bad things about this.

When you make a deposit on any of these two rooms for the first time, you get two options, use a code STARS600 and get a 100% bonus up to $600 (if your first deposit was less than that, you have two more deposits to make up for it).
Or if you do not like this bonus and just want some freebies handed out to you, then simply use the code THIRTY when making a deposit of at least $20 and you will receive 30usd worth of freebies (tickets and cash) over the next 6 days. So this is pretty awesome.
The software is amazing and is one of the best in the industry, plus you get access to all the biggest games. Biggest MTT series here and on PokerStars are massive (tens of millions), you can qualify for the biggest live tournaments like PCA. It also has very popular 3 player Spin and Go games which are very fast and can earn you up to a million dollars.
However, there is some controversy with current Stars Group leadership and how they treat poker players. For example, an addition of Stars Rewards has received a lot of criticism because it offers random rewards from the reward chests and not a set rakeback percentage. Your ''rakeback'' value does increase because you receive better chests which have better prizes, however you never know what is in there. Some players might like this since
this might bring some excitement if you are lucky to catch a bigger prize. Sometimes some additional prizes (like very expensive tickets for a PCA live tournament or SCOOP/WCOOP online tournaments) are added. So our final verdict is this, if you care about the software/traffic and cannot find a better poker room that suits your needs and if this new rakeback model is okay for you, then you should have no problems playing here. Otherwise, you will have to consider playing only some of the games here and prioritise some other poker room.
