December, 2014 – Full Flush Poker exists on the relatively young Equity Poker Network – a US-friendly network which launched at the end of last year and which allows its “skins” to offer their own poker bonuses and manage their promotions independently of the network. In order to gain a foothold in the market, Full Flush Poker offers some potentially lucrative bonus offers and – while the site is growing in popularity – substantial overlays can be found in its guaranteed poker tournaments.
Full Flush Poker Recent History
Full Flush Poker went live for real money games of online poker in November 2013 and has quickly established itself as a leading competitor in the US-facing “offshore” poker market. One of the advantages that Full Flush Poker has over other start-up online poker sites is that it shares a player database with other online poker sites from Europe and Asia, so there are no periods when the site is deathly quiet, and players should always be able to find a game.
Even though the site is relatively young, the people behind it have plenty of experience in running successful online poker sites. Full Flush Poker was the brainchild of network CEO Clive Archer who, with his team, previously ran the Chico Poker Network and the successful BetOnline site. Archer´s influence can be identified in many different areas of Full Flush Poker – most noticeably with the generous loyalty scheme and the use of Playsafe Holding´s poker software.
Full Flush Poker Download
Completing the Full Flush Poker download should take no more than a couple of minutes depending on the speed of your connection to the Internet. To start the download process, simply visit the Full Flush Poker website from any of the links on this page and click the green “play now” button. Full Flush poker is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS, and the site will determine which system you are using to ensure that the correct Full Flush Poker download file is sent.
When the Full Flush Poker download is completed, click on file to complete the installation process. A Wizard will usually open up in a new window to guide you through the installation, and it is recommended that you read the End User License Agreement before agreeing to it. You may also want to disable the shortcuts which are automatically installed. When the set-up process is complete, you will be asked if you want to run Full Flush Poker (make sure the box is checked) and click “Next”. The Full Flush poker client then starts to run and you are invited to “open an account for free”.
Setting Up a Full Flush Poker Account
Full Flush poker requires only a minimum amount of information when you first set up your account – a user name and password on the first sign-up page, and your name, address, email address and date of birth on the second. The second of the sign-up pages is also where you insert the Full Flush Poker Bonus Code (see below for the current code to use, or check our dedicated Full Flush Poker Bonus Code page for information on how to clear the Full Flush Poker bonus). The Terms and Conditions that you are asked to read and agree to are the same as during the Full Flush Poker download.
Once this first stage is completed, you will be sent an email with an “email verification” code and instructions on how to validate your account. Please note that this is different from validating your ID – which will be necessary before you are able to withdraw funds from Full Flush Poker – and it is important that the details you enter during the account sign-up process are the same as appear on any documents you will be sending to Full Flush Poker to verify your identity – a process which should be undertaken as soon as you have validated your account.
Full Flush Poker Banking
Depending on your location, Full Flush Poker accounts can be funded by P2P transfers (Western Union, MoneyGram etc.) by eWallets such as Neteller, Skrill and EcoPayz or by internationally recognized debit and credit cards (US-only prepaid debit cards will get declined). If you wish to pay by credit card, you will be asked to complete a credit card authorization form and players should note that minimum and maximum limits apply to certain methods of deposits (i.e. $50.00 minimum for Western Union).
Withdrawals have been processed quickly to date and can be facilitated via P2P transfers, , eWallet, money order, check or wire transfer. Again, minimum and maximum limits apply to each transaction and, as a security measure, withdrawals cannot be made within two days of your last deposit. Fees apply to most types of withdrawal, and vary according to the amount being taken out of your Full Flush Poker account. Customer Support via Live Chat is available 24/7 to find out the most economical method of cash-outs for your particular location.
Full Flush Poker Interface
We mentioned in our introduction about Clive Archer´s influence being apparent on Full Flush Poker, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the Full Flush Poker software, which is the same Playsafe Holding platform as is used at BetOnline. As a rule, the poker client is secure, looks okay and easy to navigate – if a little basic in functionality.
In the lobby, players have the option of switching languages from English to German, Spanish or Italian, playing around with themes, sounds and animations, or using the filters to find the most suitable game as quickly as possible. At the tables, players have the options of viewing their stats and getting instant hand histories, or making notes of their opponents and their betting actions (right-click on the player name to access this last option).
Games on Full Flush Poker
Full Flush Poker offers a “standard” range of cash games which include NL and FL Texas Hold´em Poker and NL and PT Omaha (FL also available at Omaha Hi/Lo cash tables). All Sit n Go games are in NL Hold´em and seem to be the domain of players who prefer heads-up Sit n Gos (HUSNGs) during off-peak times, as few six-max or full-ring games ever seem to be running outside the US evening time.
Multitable Tournaments are also exclusively run at NL Hold´em, but the tournament schedule has improved considerably since we first wrote our first Full Flush Poker review back in 2013. The site hosts nightly tournaments with modest buy-ins and guaranteed prize pools of up to $4,000, with a $10,000 guaranteed 6-Max tournament on a Saturday night and a $15,000 “Big Fat” tournament on Sunday afternoons.
At the time of writing, Full Flush Poker has also set up a low buy-in steps program to a $100,000 guaranteed “Game of Poker Thrones” tournament, which will be played on Sunday 4 January (2015). Further information about the “Poker Game of Thrones” promotion can be found in the news item we published in September, but please note that the Full Flush Poker bonus has increased since that article was written.
One final note about Full Flush Poker tournaments – they never have late registration or re-entries!
Level of Competition on Full Flush Poker
Although the Equity Poker Network on which Full Flush Poker resides is a relatively new network, it does not necessarily mean that the site is full of “newbies” or players who have not been able to make a profit anywhere else. Other skins on the network have been established for a fair while (Gear Poker, 5Dimes and Heritage Sports for example) and the Asian poker site Poker Hiro has its own poker training school as well as being linked to the Europe Poker Academy. Consequently you will find a complete mix of skills at all times of day and night.
However, the benefit of having some more experienced and talented players on Full Flush Poker means that more mid-stakes tables are running than may be expected on a new site. Even during what might normally be considered as “off-peak” hours (breakfast time in the States), $5.00/$10.00 NLHE tables see a little action and a choice of tables is usually available further down the stake limits.
Although Full Flush Poker lacks the technological gizmos that sometimes appeal to players, there is nothing like free poker money and Full Flush Poker offers loads of it – a very cool feature if you ask us!
When players make their first deposit, in addition to being eligible for a 150% bonus up to $1,500, Full Flush Poker also pays 10% instant cashback on deposits between $50.00 and $99.00, and 20% instant cashback on deposits of $100,00 or more (up to a maximum of $200.00 cashback).
There is an extra 10% cashback for players who reload their accounts with deposits of $1,000 or more and a further 10% cashback on reloads when players use the site´s preferred payment partners – Western Union, MoneyGram, Neteller, Skrill or EcoPayz.
The cashback can be used immediately for playing at the cash tables or competing in Full Flush Poker tournaments, but you will not be able to withdraw it until you have cleared as many POP Points as the first/reload deposit.
Full Flush Poker Promotions and Bonus Code
Of course the headline promotion is the 150% poker bonus on first deposits up to $1,000 (deposit $1,000 to be eligible for a $1,500 bonus) – this is what attract most new players to the site. However, once players have cleared their Full Flush Poker bonus, loyalty to the site is rewarded with regular reload bonuses which also attract the extra “instant cashback” bonuses mentioned above.
Advice on clearing the Full Flush Poker first deposit bonus can be found on our Full Flush Bonus Code page, but for players who just want to get on and play poker, the code you need to know to take advantage of the Full Flush Poker Bonus is “THPOBONUS”.
Other than the financial benefits of playing at Full Flush Poker, the site has two fun characters known as “The Outlaw” and “L´ill Outlaw”. Bust either of these players from the cash game tables or in one of the weekend feature tournaments and you will pick up a bounty.
Busting either of the Outlaws will also award valuable points in the site´s “Rising Star” promotion. The Rising Star is a monthly leaderboard promotion which also has an annual $10,000 prize. Points are awarded on the leaderboard for collecting POPs at the cash game tables or for running deep in selected Full Flush Poker tournaments.
At the end of 2014, seats will also be given away to the $100,000 guaranteed “Game of Poker Thrones” poker tournaments, so it is well worth getting involved in this promotion if you want the opportunity to win some valuable prizes at Full Flush Poker.
Full Flush Poker Review Conclusion
We found Full Flush Poker to be a happy hunting ground in both the cash games and multitable tournaments ever since the site was first launched. Full Flush Poker tournaments often have a very deep payout structure, so it is virtually impossible to lose money playing MTTs. We believe that Full Flush Poker is an ideal site for recreational players – or those with a little more time on their hands but with modest bankrolls – who want an enjoyable and potentially profitable poker experience.
