Edge FAQ

What is the Edge rewards program?

Edge is Full Tilt Poker’s rewards program, allowing players to achieve one of six status levels and earn rewards by playing real-money games.

How do I gain the Edge and begin to earn rewards?

Reach Bronze status by maintaining a 30-Day rolling average of 1 Full Tilt Point per day. Maintain a higher rolling average to reach higher status levels and earn greater rewards.

How do I know that I’ve joined Edge or moved status levels?

Every time you reach a new status level, you will receive a pop-up informing you of your Edge status, followed by a Welcome Email.

What are the main rewards on offer in Edge?

Once you have reached Bronze status or higher, you become eligible to register for the two daily freeroll tournaments at 15:05 ET and 21:05 ET that are open only to Edge status holders. Bronze status players can register for two exclusive freeroll tournaments taking place every Sunday at 09:45 ET and 17:45 ET.

Achieve Silver status or higher to earn weekly Edge Rewards cash payments by playing real-money poker games and accumulating Full Tilt Points. The higher your status, the more you earn. You also get to keep all the points you earn, which can be used in the Full Tilt Store.

All Edge players can participate in the Monthly Edge Leaderboards. Players must opt in and can compete across a variety of different game types and stake levels to win cash prizes and Edge status level upgrades.

Achieve Black Card status to unlock our highest level of rewards; see the Black Card FAQ below for more information.

What status levels can I reach and at what rate do I earn Edge Rewards?

For more information on the status levels, the rolling points averages required to achieve these levels, and the rates at which you earn Edge Rewards, please visit the Full Tilt Edge page.

How often will I receive my Edge Reward?

Eligible players will receive an Edge Reward once per week. The amount received will depend on both your Edge status and the number of Full Tilt Points earned during the qualifying period.

Do bonus Full Tilt Points count towards my rolling points averages?

Only base Full Tilt Points count towards your averages. Bonus points multipliers, such as Happy Hour bonus points or the Black Card Pro sponsorship program multiplier, do not count.

Do I earn Full Tilt Points in Casino Games?

Yes, Full Tilt Points are earned based on the amount wagered. The rate you earn points depends on the game type and variant played. For more information, please visit our Full Tilt Points page.

Please note that if you have achieved an Edge status level of Silver or higher, the Full Tilt Points you earn playing casino games are disregarded when determining your weekly Edge Rewards cash payments.

How are rolling points averages calculated?

Your 30-day rolling average is based on the previous 29 days plus the current day and your 100-day rolling average is based on the previous 99 days plus the current day.

How do I take part in the Monthly Edge Leaderboards?

To compete for prizes in the Monthly Edge Leaderboards, you must opt in and hold an Edge status level for a least a portion of the month. There are two ways to opt in:

  • Log in, select the Edge menu in the game lobby and click Opt In To Leaderboards… to open the opt in dialog
  • Log in and visit your personal Edge Status page in My Promotions, open the Monthly Edge LBs tab and click OPT IN to Leaderboards

After you have opted in, your play will be automatically tracked and your Player ID listed on the Monthly Edge Leaderboards as appropriate.

Where can I see my own position on the Monthly Edge Leaderboards?

Log into the game software, access the My Promotions section and open the Monthly Edge LBs tab on your personal Edge Status page. Your current position will be shown above whichever leaderboard you choose to display.

Can I opt in to the Monthly Edge Leaderboards after the month has begun?

If you opt in mid-month and hold an Edge status level for least a portion of the month, all of your play during that month will be taken into account for the purposes of the leaderboards.

What happens if I drop below Bronze status or decide to opt out of the Monthly Edge Leaderboards?

If you opt out or drop below Bronze status, your Player ID will not be listed on future leaderboards, but your previous play remains tracked and your Player ID will be listed on existing and archived leaderboards as appropriate.

Is there a grace period if I drop below the points average required for my Edge status level?

There is no grace period; should you fail to maintain the points averages required for Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond or Black Card status, you will drop to a lower status level. You will drop out of Edge if you fail to maintain Bronze status.

However, once you reclaim the points average needed to move up to the next Edge status level, you will instantly gain access to the range of benefits associated with that status level.

I’m not a Diamond or Black Card status player but I can access the Diamond Edge Store. Does this mean I can purchase Diamond Edge items?

All players can access the Diamond Edge Store and browse through the contents but only Diamond Edge members and Black Card players can purchase items.

Black Card FAQ

How do I become a Black Card player?

Reach Black Card status by maintaining a 100-day rolling average of 500 Full Tilt Points per day. You can also be awarded Black Card status if you are a Diamond status player and finish in the top 25 of any Monthly Edge Leaderboard, irrespective of your rolling points average.

What additional rewards do I receive on top of those on offer to the other Edge players?

In addition to retaining all of the benefits received as a Diamond status player, you can participate in the Black Card Pro sponsorship program, earning double Full Tilt Points for your play while competing against other players for top spot in the Black Card Leaderboards. You must opt in to the Monthly Edge Leaderboards for your points to be doubled. If you opt in to the Monthly Edge Leaderboards before reaching Black Card status, you automatically participate in the sponsorship program the moment you become a Black Card player.

You can also convert your Full Tilt Points, both those accumulated over time and newly acquired, directly to cash at a rate of $1 for every 250 Full Tilt Points. Points can be converted on a manual or automatic basis.

What is the Black Card Pro sponsorship program, and how can I take part?

The Black Card Pro sponsorship program offers you the chance to become a Full Tilt Poker sponsored pro, part of the Black Card Pro team, by competing against other Black Card players and finishing in first position on any of the Black Card Leaderboards. These leaderboards cover a number of different game types and stake levels, giving you multiple chances to prove yourself against your peers and secure a four-month sponsorship contract.

Each member of the Black Card Pro team receives 100% cashback for the entire term of their contract, plus a goodie bag packed full of exclusive Black Card Pro merchandise.

You must opt in to the Monthly Edge Leaderboards to take part in the Black Card Pro sponsorship program; once opted in, you will automatically participate in the Black Card Pro sponsorship program once you reach Black Card status.

How do I convert Full Tilt Points into cash?

Black Card players can convert their Full Tilt Points – both those accumulated over time and newly acquired – directly to cash at a rate of $1 for every 250 Full Tilt Points.

You can automatically convert the Full Tilt Points you earn in the period between Edge Rewards paydays by selecting the Edge menu in the game lobby, clicking Edge Rewards Payday… and ticking the checkbox in the Edge Rewards Payday dialog.

You can manually convert your points into cash via the Convert Full Tilt Points dialog. To access this, open the Cashier in the game lobby and click the Convert FTPs button above your Full Tilt Points balance.

Players who do not earn Black Card status by virtue of their 100-day rolling points average and are awarded Black Card status are not eligible to manually convert their Full Tilt Points.
