In 2008 Full Tilt Poker introduced the new Tournament Dollars (T$) feature, which made it easier than ever for online poker players to play in tournaments that fit their schedule. Since that time, players around the globe have cashed in big with T$ including exchanging them for real money!
With this T$ feature, any time you win a tournament entry through a satellite, you now have the option to un-register from that tournament and receive the buy-in amount back in T$. These T$ can be used instead of real money when it comes to entering any cash buy-in event or Sit n Go tournament and can also be redeemed for real cash so you can join in any ring game.
The idea is a simple one; when you click the ‘Register Now’ button for a tournament, you will have the option of buying in with funds from your Real Money Account or with your T$, with just a simple click of a button. The balances you have available in T$ and in cash in both accounts are shown on the Tournament Buy-In screen, so you know exactly what amount you have where. To check your T$ balance, just click on the Cashier button and your available T$ balance will be shown just below your real money available balance in the Account Balance section of the Cashier screen.
Want to play in a real money buy-in ring game but don’t have enough any cash? You can still get in the game when you log into Full Tilt Poker and go to the cashier screen. Here you will see the section that lists the total number of Tournament Dollars that you have and right above it, there is a button that says ‘Convert T$.’ Just click this button to be taken to the Tournament Dollars conversion page where you can redeem your T$ for cash to buy-in to your favorite cash game! The ‘Convert T$’ screen will show you the balance you have available to convert. Just enter the total T$ you wish to convert, click the Covert button and your cash is ready to go minus the commission fee of 5% which will be charged for the conversion.
Want to get in a certain tournament but you don’t have enough T$? Don’t let your balance stop you short because you can combine your T$ with cash from your account to buy-in to any tournament Full Tilt has on their schedule! Plus Full Tilt Poker runs several promotions every month where you can play FreeRolls and other tournaments that have big T$ prize pools. Win valuable T$ and use them to buy into a big guaranteed event at Full Tilt Poker like the Sunday $750K Guaranteed tournament at 6:00 p.m. EDT. Buy-in with T$ instead of the $216 cash and play to take down the lion’s share of the prize pool guaranteed to be worth at least $750,000! But if you don’t have that many T$, you can qualify through satellites starting at just $2 + $.25 T$! Win more than one satellite and pump up your T$ balance when Full Tilt Poker credits your account with 216 T$ for every additional satellite you win!
Unleash the tournament winner in you and take home a big score with T$ only at Full Tilt Poker!
