The old Full Tilt Poker paid players who signed up via affilates 27% flat rakeback for every hand.
The new EDGE VIP system keeps the weekly cashback, but adds play volume requirements, similar to the PokerStars VIP Club. Black Card status then adds additional value.
Base Rakeback %
|Old||27% + Black Card||Weekly||Yes||Yes|

|100 Days||Cash per 100 FTPs||Weekly RB %|
$1 in rake = 10 Full Tilt Points (FTPs).
Diamond VIPs earn exclusive access to the EDGE Diamond Store, where Full Tilt Points can be used to purchase the following bonuses.
Equivalent Rakeback %
There are no MGR deductions on the new Full Tilt, so the above rakeback percentages are accurate. Players that frequently grind during happy hours can add a few percent onto these figures.
Players that don't reach Diamond status can still use their Full Tilt Points for tournament tokens and ring game tickets, offering up to a few percent extra rakeback.
Black Card status is achieved by earning a rolling average of 500 Full Tilt Points per day over 100 days. That's equivalent to $50 rake/day.
At the highest volume of play, Black Card VIPs can compete in monthly leaderboards to become Black Card sponsored pros. At any play volume benefits include liquid FTP to cash conversion and double FTPs.
15 different leaderboards run for different games and stakes, each running for 6 months and awarding elite grinders 6 month pro sponsorships after completion. Sponsored pros become 'red' on the site, and receive an incredible 100% rakeback plus $20,000 in bonuses or MTT entries.
Black Card VIPs can convert FTPs to cash at any time a rate of 200 FTPs = $1. This 5% rakeback is in addition to weekly Edge rewards, bumping up rewards immediately to 30%. The conversion can be set up to automatically add cash to your balance at the same time as your Edge reward hits, or can be done manually at any time.
Then, simply opt into the monthly leaderboards (which run 100% of the time) and regardless of your placing you’ll earn double the base FTPs for all your play. With the double FTPs rewards then reach 35%.
The approximate ‘up to 40%’ figure then accounts for bonus FTPs earned with ‘Game of the Week’ and ‘Early Bird’ promotions, random reload bonuses offered on the site, and your EV in the leaderboard.
