Players who enjoy fast-fold poker will be in their glory for an entire week beginning June 24 as Full Tilt Poker has announced a Rush Week promotion that allows players to earn up to $250 in bonus cash.
To be eligible, players need only opt into the promo by clicking the “My Promotions” selection in the Cashier page of their account. Following that, playing at ring games, SitNGos and multi-table tourneys (MTTs) of the Rush Poker variety will earn FTP points that earn cash rewards on a sliding scale.
Running from June 24 through June 30, the promotion has instituted four reward levels that each offer two different payouts depending on play for either four or seven days. For instance, the Mach 1 level requires 10 Full Tilt Points (FTPs) to be earned on any four days during the week or all seven days. The cash bonus is $5 for accumulating the required 10 FTPs in four days and a $10 payout for reaching the minimum in all seven.
The Mach 2 level requires earning 100 FTPs, with $25 the reward for four days of play and $50 for playing each day of Rush Week. Mach 3 escalates to a 350 FTP minimum and pays either $50 or $100. The top level of Mach 4 allows fast-folders to earn $125 or $250, as long as 1,000 FTPs are accumulated in four or seven days, respectively.
In addition to the bonus money, a $25,000 Rush Poker Freeroll is available on July 7 to any player who makes a final table in a Rush Poker MTT or SitNGo during the Rush Week promotion. You can keep tabs on your progress during the promo by accessing your own individual Rush Week page found in “My Promotions.” Any cash earned during the fast-fold promo will be credited to your account at the conclusion of Rush Week.
Rush Poker was developed by Full Tilt and released in early 2010. The innovative fast-fold poker concept that allows each player to immediately transition to a new table among a pool of players upon folding took the online poker world by storm. Since its inception, the concept has been copied by other poker rooms and networks under different names such as Zoom Poker, Blaze Poker, and Speed Poker.
