Hopeful Signs from Full Tilt Poker: Rakeback Begins Hitting US Player Accounts

Full Tilt Poker

In some good news, rakeback began showing up in the accounts of Full Tilt Poker US customers Friday morning. 

Still, the company is yet to begin paying out these customers.

A member of the TwoPlusTwo.com posting forum commented:

I got mine too, however this still does not mean we will get paid. The lack of communication from this Type of a company is inexcusable whatever the reason, in the event we do get paid, I hope all of you have learned the same lesson re: Full Tilt that I have. Don't trust them, never play there again, far as I am concerned they are the new UB (UltimateBet).

Full Tilt was one of three online poker rooms indicted by US law enforcement on April 15.  PokerStars and UB.com were also indicted and forced to exit the US market. 

When one plays poker for real money the poker rooms take a fee, which typically ranges from 3 percent to 5 percent of each pot. This fee is called the "rake".  With rakeback, players get a percentage (usually around 25 to 35 percent) of these fees returned each month.
