Tournament Dollars, Tournament Tickets and Ring Game Tickets

Tournament Dollars, Tournament Tickets and Ring Game Tickets provide you with more real-money options.

Tournament Dollars (T$) are a special currency that can be used to register for any real-money Multi-Table Tournament or Sit & Go. You can earn T$ by:

  • Placing in a tournament that awards T$ as the prize
  • Unregistering from a tournament you satellite into
  • Winning multiple satellites into the same tournament

In addition to using your T$ to enter tournaments, you can also convert your T$ to cash.

Full Tilt Poker’s Tournament Tickets give you another option for buying in to your favorite games at Full Tilt Poker. Each Tournament Ticket that you win or buy is worth a specific buy-in amount. You can use each ticket to buy in to your chosen tournament for the face value of that Tournament Ticket. You can win Tournament Tickets through a wide range of Satellites, tournaments and promotions or buy them directly with Full Tilt Points.

For more information, please see the Tournament Tickets page.

Like Tournament Tickets, Ring Game Tickets are an alternative way to buy-in to your favorite games at Full Tilt Poker.

Each Ring Game Ticket has a cash value that changes based on your play at the tables. You unlock the cash value of a Ring Game Ticket by using it to buy in to ring games and earning Full Tilt Points.

Ring Game Tickets can be purchased from the Full Tilt Store.

To learn more about Ring Game Tickets, please visit the Ring Game Tickets page.
