UPDATE: Unfortunately, there are numerous reports that Full Flush seems to dodge customers who have complaints and are guilty of making people wait for their payouts.
The initial Full Flush Poker bonus is a 150% match on first deposits up to $1500.00 (deposit $1000.00 and receive a bonus of $1500.00). The minimum deposit is $25.00, and players depositing $50.00 or more when they first create their Full Flush Poker account will receive 20% cashback immediately credited into their accounts. An additional 10% cashback (up to $200.00) is available for players who make their first deposits using either Western Union, MoneyGram, Neteller, Skrill or ecoPayz.
All players making a deposit above $50.00 will receive a free ticket into Full Flush Poker´s $1,000 First Depositors Freeroll plus – if the first deposit is above $125.00 – 2200 “Promobucks”, which can be used to enter the site´s often under-subscribed online poker tournaments – including the $5K guaranteed “Sunday Blowout”.
Full Flush Poker also offers regular 100% match reload bonuses on subsequent deposits of up to $600.00, plus an add-on “VIP Loyalty Bonus” of 10% instant cashback (up to $200.00) when the amount of the reload deposit exceeds $1,000 (there is a minimum turnover requirement before it is possible to withdraw any of the instant 20% or 10% cashback bonuses).
When funding an account, Full Flush Poker accepts deposits by Visa card in addition to the payments methods above which qualify for the bonus 10% instant cashback (Western Union, MoneyGram, Neteller, Skrill or ecoPayz), but a maximum limit of $300.00 applies. Players considering their deposit options should also be aware that the site will cover any fees on P2P deposits above $250.00.
Clearing the Bonus
New players to online poker and those with limited bankrolls are advised to play on the fixed limit Hold´em tables or pot limit Omaha Hi/Lo tables where more players are likely to see the flop, because Full Flush Poker has a “no flop – no drop” policy, which means that if the flop is not dealt, no rake is deducted from the pot and therefore no POPs are awarded (as often happens in NL Hold´em).
The Full Flush Poker download is easy to perform and players will be up and running within a few minutes. Players should follow the links on this page to the site´s Home Page, click on any of the buttons which say “Play Now”, and be taken to Full Flush Poker´s download page. There a choice of buttons is available for the Full Flush Poker for Windows and the Full Flush Poker for Mac. Click on the appropriate button and follow the simple instructions.
We always recommend that players read that software licensing agreement when they download the Full Flush Poker software (instead of just ticking the box) and there is a separate Terms and Conditions file to read during the registration process. Once the single page registration form is completed, Full Flush Poker will send a validation email, and the validation code should be entered in the “lobby” section of the poker client before the first deposit is made (full instructions appear on the email).
The Full Flush Poker software is remarkably light and will work on any computer using Windows XP (or later) or Mac OSX 10.4 or higher. Thereafter the minimum system requirements are identical:
|Operating System||Windows 95||Windows 7||Mac OS X 10.5||Mac OS X 10.6+|
|Processor||300MHz Pentium||1GHz Pentium||Power PC G4||Intel x86|
|Memory||512Mb RAM||1Gb RAM||256Mb RAM||512Mb RAM|
Full Flush Poker only provides a basic choice of cash games – Texas Hold´em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo – while all the sit n go and multi-table tournaments are only available in NL Hold´em. Because the site welcomes players from all over the world, there are not the great peaks and troughs in traffic that some US-only poker sites witness, and players will find a cash game at most times of the day without a prolonged wait.
While there is sufficient action at the cash tables (which are all named after famous songs – you can get a lot of mileage out of “Mama Told Me Not to Come” and “Everybody Hurts”), the sit n go games and multi-table tournaments are fairly deserted. This often results in overlays in the tournaments with guaranteed prize pools, and as Full Flush Poker has some quite deep (and irregular) payout structures, a lot of players benefit from the free money that is available.
US players can play Texas Hold´em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo and get access to a wide range of fantastic bonus offers at Full Flush Poker.
Level of Competition
With mostly low stakes poker being played on Full Flush Poker, the level of skill on show is a little bit light. It is true that, due to Full Flush Poker being a new US online poker site with a limited first deposit bonus, not many players will have deposited substantial bankrolls; and it is also the case that there are some good micro-stakes grinders who are multitabling as best they can to clear their bonuses. However, the cash games on Full Flush Poker are eminently beatable.
It is also unlikely that an experienced poker player could lose money playing in the guaranteed poker tournaments. It should be mentioned that the players in these guaranteed events are very tight until the money bubble bursts – even in re-buy/add-on tournaments which many of the guaranteed tournaments are – and also please note that there is no late registration in any of the Full Flush Poker tournaments.
In addition to the “instant bonus” on deposits in excess of $50.00, Full Flush Poker offers a rolling selection of promotions that change periodically. Bounties at the cash game tables and rake races add a little variety to the options available, and it is worth following Full Flush Poker on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with what is happening on the site.
Full Flush Poker also has a minimal rewards program in which the POPs earned at the tables can be used to enter freeroll poker tournaments with cash prizes, or converted directly into cash once the first deposit bonus has been cleared. There is also a “refer-a-friend” program in which the referring player and the friend can each pick up a $25.00 bonus.
Hits & Misses
Being a relatively new site, Full Flush Poker has some work to do in a few departments:
- Traffic not impressive, so forget about anything beyond $1.00/$2.00 during off-peak periods.
- The software uses the same Playsafe software that is used by BetOnline.
- Known for giving customers the runaround
In its favor, we found that Full Flush Poker has the following advantages:
- Instant bonuses are great and attract recreational players to the site.
- Very friendly community as evidenced by chat at the tables.
- Player funds are segregated from the site´s operational accounts and your bankroll is always secure.
PokerSites.us Conclusion: It has the potential to grow but a few important customer issues need to be addressed.
