Playing For Real Money

If you're looking to get the most out of your online poker experience, Full Tilt Poker offers a wide selection of real money ring games and tournaments for your enjoyment. What's more, Full Tilt Poker works hard to ensure that playing for real money is easy, safe and secure by:

Tournament Dollars and Tournament Tickets

Tournament Dollars and Tournament Tickets provide you with two more real-money options.

Tournament Dollars (T$) are a special currency that can be used to register for any real-money Multi-Table Tournament or Sit & Go. You can earn T$ by:

  • Placing in a tournament that awards T$ as the prize
  • Unregistering from a tournament you satellite into
  • Winning multiple satellites into the same tournament

In addition to using your T$ to enter tournaments, you can also convert your T$ to cash.

Full Tilt Poker’s Tournament Tickets give you another option for buying in to your favorite games at Full Tilt Poker. Each Tournament Ticket that you win or buy is worth a specific buy-in amount. You can use each ticket to buy in to your chosen tournament for the face value of that Tournament Ticket. You can win Tournament Tickets through a wide range of Satellites, tournaments and promotions or buy them directly with Full Tilt Points, Iron Man Medals or Academy Credits.

For more information, please see the Tournament Tickets page.

Every time you play for real money you’ll earn Full Tilt Poker points that can be redeemed for tournament entries and exclusive Full Tilt Poker gear.
