For more information about our security features, visit the Full Tilt Poker Security page.


Connection Issues

Will I experience lag or disconnections while using the Full Tilt Poker app on my mobile device?

The internet is a peer-to-peer network, which means that information flowing between your computer or mobile device and the game server must pass through several 'peer' machines (8 to 24 or more). These machines do not belong to Full Tilt Poker or your internet service provider (ISP), but your connection depends on them. If any of these peer machines is having trouble, you may experience a temporary lag or disconnect.

Your email and certain sites may continue to function when there is a brief Full Tilt Poker connectivity problem. That's because some sites may have a shorter or different network path to your device than Full Tilt Poker does.

Also note that it can take your mobile device up to 90 seconds to reconnect when switching between a 3G and Wi-Fi connection. During that time, you will be disconnected from the server if you are logged in. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you sit out from any tables before switching networks.


What happens if I answer a phone call while using the Full Tilt Poker app or press the Home button to send the Full Tilt Poker app to the background?

Answering a phone call will send the Full Tilt Poker app to the background. If you answered a phone call and wish to return to the game, you will need to manually restart the Full Tilt Poker app. Any time the application is sent to the background, this action will sit you out automatically at the tables. If you are currently in a hand then your hand will automatically be checked or folded if there is a bet in front of you. For this reason, it is strongly encouraged not to exit the Full Tilt Poker app while in a hand at the table.

If you don't return to the Full Tilt Poker app for 10 minutes, you will be logged out due to inactivity.


Technical Information

Which connection is better, Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G?

In any circumstance where you have reliable Wi-Fi, using it should provide a much more stable connection than a 3G or 4G connection. If you are on the move, using 3G or 4G access is more appropriate. However, 3G or 4G signals may drop if you are travelling away from metropolitan areas and you may be charged fees by your 3G or 4G service provider for the amount of data you use.

To enable the Wi-Fi connection, go to 'Settings' > 'Wi-Fi' on your Apple device, or 'Settings' > 'Wireless & networks' > 'Wi-Fi' on your Android™ and turn on the connection.
