Cash Game Choice – (9.5/10)
The cash game choice that is offered by Full Tilt Poker is not met by most of the other online poker websites around. In addition to every single Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo variant in existence, you’ll also find some of the following games to play online in Full Tilt Poker cash games:
7-game forced rotation
Hold ‘Em and Omaha Hi/Lo
Hold ‘Em and Omaha
Multiple other mixed games
Essentially, just about every other reasonably popular cash game variant of online poker is one that can be found online at Full Tilt Poker. And if you can’t find it, shoot them an e-mail. They just might be willing to add it with enough popularity behind it.
Cash Game Traffic – (9.5/10)
Full Tilt Poker is the second most travelled online poker site in the world. In terms of cash game players, you can regularly expect there to be 15k to 20k players available to play different games within the cash game vaults of Full Tilt Poker. Out of those, the following breakdown is what you might expect:
80% playing Hold ‘Em variants
15% playing Omaha variants
4% playing Seven Card Stud variants
1% playing all other cash game variants that are available
Keep in mind that 1% of 20k is still 200, so just about every cash game that Full Tilt Poker has available will have a table that you can take advantage of.
Cash Game Competition – (8/10)
Even though Full Tilt Poker does have some of the most spectacular cash game numbers that you can see in online poker at the current moment in time, they do not really have the softer competition that comes with such numbers. It might have to do with the heavy influence of the professionals, but many of the lower limit Full Tilt Poker cash games are surprisingly tough. For that reason, it loses a few marks for toughness, but not that many since you can still beat the lower limits with good solid poker.
Rake Costs – (8.5/10)
The Full Tilt Poker rake schedules are competitive to the rest of the online poker market. They are neither good nor bad in comparison to what one would expect a website of this kind to offer as a rake schedule.
Support Options – (8/10)
The customer care that Full Tilt Poker provides is essentially a two-pronged attack. The first has to do with FAQ documentation that is available on the website and the second has to do with e-mail support that you can secure through the main Full Tilt Poker customer care website. There are over a dozen different e-mail addresses dedicated to different support issues and staff will respond to e-mails sent with lightning speed. However, the lack of other options does cause Full Tilt Poker to lose some points within this particular area.
