Full Tilt Poker’s exclusive Rush Poker is revolutionising the way poker is played online. The online game has always been quicker than its live counterpart, but Rush Poker is taking that speed to a whole new level. Since launching last year Full Tilt Poker has gained a surge in traffic thanks to the fact they are the only site to currently offer the Rush Poker style of game. They are set to cash in even further on that popularity with Rush Poker week. A week of bonuses and freerolls for players in the Rush Poker games to reward them for trying it out.
For those who aren’t in the know, Rush Poker is aptly named. In traditional poker, players have to wait for the completion of each hand, before a new hand is dealt. In Rush Poker players who fold are moved to a new table that is made up of players who recently folded their hands at any number of other Rush Poker tables at the same stakes level to form a new game, where another hand is immediately dealt. It means no waiting for the players and an extreme rate of hands per hour.
Rush Poker comes in both cash game and multi-table tournament format and is spread across a number of varying stakes levels. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it has certainly proved popular since being introduced by Full Tilt.
So back to Rush Poker Week. From Monday July 12th (FTP Lobby Time) there will be added incentives to get your rush on, simply by earning Full Tilt Points from playing Rush Poker Cash Games or Tournaments.
Cash prizes will be awarded in three categories – Bronze, Silver and Gold. There will also be two types of payouts at each level. Earn the minimum points requirement of any level on four days and you will be awarded the payout in the highest category you are eligible for. The categories and requirements are as follows:
Bronze (10 Full Tilt Points):
Earn at least 10 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $5
Earn at least 10 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $10
Silver (100 Full Tilt Points):
Earn at least 100 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $25
Earn at least 100 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $50
Gold (1,000 Full Tilt Points):
Earn at least 1,000 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $125
Earn at least 1,000 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $250
If you achieve more than one of these reward levels, you will receive your highest possible cash amount only – the rewards are not cumulative.
As an added carrot, all players who final table a Rush Poker tournament qualify for the $50,000 Rush Poker Freeroll. To help qualify you for the end of week final, Full Tilt are going to spread more Rush Poker on the schedule. In addition to some added tournaments some of the usual guaranteed tournaments will be converted to Rush Poker format as a one-off special. This will include the Full Tilt Monthy Million which is scheduled to take place at the end of the week. The $50,000 Rush Poker Freeroll will be held at 5:15AEST on Monday July 26 where all qualified players will be duking it out for the cash on the house.
