Overview: Launched in November 2013, Full Flush is the flagship site on the Equity Poker Network, and is quite new on the scene. It has had considerable success in the past two years thanks to its attractive bonuses, profitable promotions and soft competition, and has recently began accepting bitcoin as a deposit option.
Competition: Having been established as a simple poker room for low stakes players, Full Flush is undoubtedly an excellent option for those wanting to indulge in some leisurely, recreational poker, and newcomers who have limited experience with the game. As a result, many have deemed the competition to be somewhat soft, with plenty of easy-to-beat players making it an environment for beginners rather than a forum for experts. Therefore if you deem yourself to be a pro or semi-pro you’d be advised to look elsewhere for a more aggressive game. As the site is evidently directed at recreational players with a modest bankroll, its outstanding success in the last two years is rather unsurprising.
Cash Games: No Limit and Pot Limit Texas Hold’em and Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo are offered by Full Flush Poker.
Tournaments: are offered in both single and multi-table options and have a wide variety of sizes, from large scale tournaments of hundreds of players, to smaller tables of a few dozen, to intimate one on one competitions. The tournaments offer unlimited re-buys during the first hour and an add-on option when the re-buy period has finished. The prize structure is always established before the tournament starts – regardless of number of competitors – and on weekends the prize money is guaranteed at between $2,000 and $5,000, an attractive prospect for any poker player.
Bonuses: Full Flush changes it promotions frequently, but it is currently offering new players a 150% Welcome Bonus on their first deposits of (up to) the bitcoin equivalent of $1,000 (therefore a deposit of $1,000 will qualify for a $1,500 bonus) and existing players can gain a 100% Reload Bonus on their first deposit each month of up to the bitcoin equivalent of $1,500 (deposit $1,500 to qualify for a $1,500 bonus).
Software: As Full Flush belongs to the Equity Poker Network it uses their own original tried and tested poker software. It is functional and an improvement on software offered by some other bitcoin-only sites.
Banking: options on Full Flush Poker have just become more exciting with the recent announcement that players now have the opportunity to fund their accounts with bitcoin. They’ve ensured the process for depositing the digital currency is as straight-forward and hassle-free as possible; current customers just have to visit the cashier and click on the bitcoin logo in the eWallet deposit options. After this, players are free to deposit any number of bitcoins they desire, and Full Flush credits their account with the equivalent quantity in dollars. Funds can be cashed out via bank wire or checks (fees apply) or, for non-US players, via Neteller and Skrill. The only complaint most customers continue to raise regarding Full Flush is the inability to make withdrawals on weekends.
Customer Service: Quite comprehensive as the site offers a live chat online, a telephone service and of course, an email option.
Why join? The new bitcoin option facilitated by Full Flush will strengthen the site’s reputation and increase its traffic levels. The only tangible drawback lies in the site’s tendency to attract recreational rather than experienced online poker players.
