Full Tilt Poker has been off-line since the Black Friday domain seizures, but when it returns on November 6, it will be with a big series of freerolls and a new big money festival.
The relaunch of Full Tilt has already been confirmed; although it will be under the same management as PokerStars, the funds of the two companies will be totally segregated, and they will continue for all practical purposes to be two different sites. PokerStars is renowned for its promotions, some of which like the Depositor Freerolls appear to be permanently ongoing, but Full Tilt was no slouch either, and although its new loyalty scheme will be much simplified, it will begin its relaunch with a series of big money freerolls, the Deal Me In series, which will see a quarter of a million dollars given away over a six day period.
Party Poker and its sister site WPT Poker are also offering some special freerolls at the beginning of November - which players can qualify for now simply by playing at the cash tables, so poker buffs are spoilt for choice.
In December, Full Tilt will also be running a special festival, the FTOPS from December 2-16, which will see big prizes dispensed.
And just in case you didn't notice, Christmas is now a mere two months away, which means there will be lots of other promotions in the air from all the major poker sites, including undoubtedly a lot of freerolls like the Juha Santa series on the (now unfortunately deceased) CryptoLogic Network.
Here are a few screengrabs of adventures and misadventures on Full Tilt.
