Full Tilt Poker’s Ring Game Tickets are an alternative way to buy-in to your favorite ring games.
Full Tilt Poker offers a full range of Ring Game Tickets for all levels of players and they can be bought from the Full Tilt Store.
Track and Use your Ring Game Tickets
You can check the current balance of your tickets, and information about each ticket, by visiting the Cashier in the game software and selecting View Tickets. Alternatively, you can click on the Requests menu in the game lobby and select Check my Ticket Balance to open the Ticket Balance window.
To find a ring game to buy in to using your Ring Game Tickets, select the Ring Game tab and click on a ticket. The games list at the bottom of the Ticket Balance window will show suitable ring games. Use the appropriate buttons to open the table or Rush Poker lobby.
Ring Game Tickets have a number of properties that determine how you release its cash value to your real-money balance:
A ticket’s Value is its latest cash value.
For example, you buy in to a ring game for $25 using a Ring Game Ticket with a Current Value of $100. You double your stack to $50, and then stand up. Your Ring Game Ticket now has a Current Value of $125 (the unused $75, plus the $50 you stood up with).
Use your ticket to buy in to the ring game of your choice whenever the ticket’s Current Value is equal to or greater than the minimum buy-in. If your ticket’s Current Value is larger than the maximum buy-in on the table, you’ll be able to use the remaining value to reload.
FTP Release Value
A ticket’s FTP Release Value is the target number of Full Tilt Points you must earn to unlock the cash value of a ticket. Only Full Tilt Points you earn at ring game tables where you buy-in with your ticket count towards the FTP Release Value.
Note: Bonus Full Tilt Points do not count towards the FTP Release Value.
The final cash value of the ticket will be released to your real-money account at the conclusion of the hand where you reach the FTP Release Value. Your ticket will also be expired and removed from your balance.
A ticket’s Max Value is the maximum value that a ticket can be worth when not in play.
If a ticket’s Current Value is greater than its Max Value when you stand up from a table, the Current Value will be reset equal to the Max Value and the excess cash value credited to your real-money account.
For example, your Ring Game Ticket has a Max Value of $500. You begin a session with your ticket worth $400 and you increase it to $600. When you stand up from your seat, the ticket’s Current Value is reset to $500 (equal to the Max Value) and $100 is credited to your real-money account.
A ticket’s Minimum Threshold is the minimum value that a ticket can be worth.
If a ticket’s Current Value is less than its Minimum Threshold at any stage, the Current Value will be credited to your real-money account at the end of the hand and the ticket expired.
For example, if your Ring Game Ticket has a Minimum Threshold of $2 and its Current Value drops to $1, we will credit your real-money account with $1 at the end of the hand and expire the ticket.
Expiration and Activity Requirements
Every Ring Game Ticket has an expiry date. Please check it carefully to ensure you get full use from your ticket.
To ensure that your tickets remain Active, you must use each ticket to earn a fraction or more of a Full Tilt Point at least once per seven (7) day period. If you do not use your ticket to earn points, it will be classified as Inactive once the seven day threshold has passed. If this occurs you will be unable to use it and the ticket value will be permanently lost.
