Full Tilt Poker SoftwareFull Tilt Poker has some of the best software and features in the online poker industry. The ease of navigation at Full Tilt is incredible. Menu speeds are lightning quick with updated information happening instantaneously. The poker tables are all standardized green felt. Player avatars [very cartoonish and distracting] all float upon UFO-like platforms of black/gray. Players are free to change almost every feature of the table, however. Play with or without the avatars. Change the expression of your avatar. Change the background, or card backs. Players can right click another player's avatar or disk, and place themselves in that location. Alternatively, players can click upon the options tab in the main menu and choose auto-center, which will always sit the player in the lower center seat of the table. The note-taking function does not have an auto-wrap text feature, but does have 14-color player tagging, so players can identify players. Full Tilt's statistics screen is top-notch.
Full Tilt's are re-sizable, allowing for players to fit as many tables as they wish on their monitor screen.
The main menu software is easily navigated and intuitive. Players can customize the information displayed here by using the edit tab on both the cash game and tournament menus. The cash game main menu includes "players seeing the flop" percentages as well as average pot size statistics to facilitate table selection.
Players may click open the tournament screen menu of their choice and there will be a listing of all freerolls, tournament token and cash qualifiers to their selected tournament. Clicking on any within this satellite will take the player to that satellite's registration screen. Should their be satellites to these satellites, those will be listed there.
The cashiering screen is well organized with numerous options and buttons available to accomplish tasks such as deposit, withdrawal, account history, access to their online store, bonus progress and player information update.
Overall, Full Tilt Poker's software is among the best in the online poker industry and players will revel in its easy, intuitive interface.
