The initial download is an easy 10.6mb.
The software and graphics are great for both the Mac and PC and the site does accept US players.
One of the best things I love about this site is its tournament traffic!
I rarely have to wait more than 30 seconds for my sitngo to fill up.
Even when I enter an 18+ player tournament your wait is a short one. Even in the off hours Full Tilt has so many members that your wait will never be long.
Full Tilt has a great tournament offering as well. You can plays heads up or join a 90 man tournament. They have 9, 18, 27, and 45 player tournaments as well. You can enter a tournament for as low as $1 right up to $5500.00. There are also loads of guaranteed prize tournaments and satellite tournaments to BIG cash events.
There are lots of freeroll event's if you want to start increasing your bankroll from zero. Every Sunday Full Tilt has their feature event which is the 750K guarantee. There are many lower cost satellite tournaments you can enter to gain entry into the big Sunday event. There are also lots of ongoing promo's to promote tournament play.
The sign up bonus at Full Tilt is pretty standard as far as other sites go. They match your deposit of up to $600 and put it right in your account. Of course you don't get it all right away, you have to earn it by accumulating poker points and even then they only release it to you in increment's of $5 after certain levels of points are attained. You also have a specific time period to earn all of your bonus. As I said it is pretty standard, no better but no worse then many of the other sites. Hey, its free money after all !
Overall I like full tilt because to me tournament traffic is very important. I don't want to be spending time waiting for a game to start. It has a great tournament offering for both high and low dollar players.
Highly recommended for sixhanded players.
