If you play online poker in Ireland, you probably know about Full Tilt.
This company opened in 2004 and was formerly owned by Tiltware LLC.
The site is now owned by Amaya Gaming Group, which purchased it in August 2014.
Full Tilt holds gaming licenses in Malta and the Isle of Man.
Newly-joined players will receive a 100 percent bonus, with a maximum of $600, when players make their first deposit. In a fun twist, Full Tilt allows players to make up to three deposits within 60 days to reach the $600 threshold. The bonus is released in $10 increments for every 200 VPPs a player earns.
Players have four months to use the bonus funds before they are returned to the house. http://www.fulltilt.com/poker/promotions/bonus/
