There are 31 events in total running over the next two weeks, and if Event 1 is any guide, every prospect that the final prize payouts will exceed $7m.
Although buy-ins for the events don’t go below $55, and range all the way up to $635, there are plenty of satellites available to provide a cheap way of winning entry to the big money events.
A bonus for players who satellite into an event and make the money is a special Satellite Hero promotion. Anyone who wins their FTOPS event seat via a satellite tournament and then cashes will receive a bonus ticket to a Satellite Hero Freeroll which is awarding 25 tickets to the MiniFTOPS $75 Main Event.
MiniFTOPS will start a week after its big brother, offering the same 31 tournaments but at 1/10th of the buy in. Cash in more than one tournament entered via satellite, and receive a $75 Main Event ticket directly.
Cash in five or more events after satelliting into them and there’s a special prize of a ticket to every MiniFTOPS XXV tournament.
The Main Event for FTOPS XXV takes place on Sunday, April 13. It comes with a $635 price tag, but guarantees $1.5m. In order to make sure of the guarantee, Full Tilt has made this a re-entry tournament. If you enter and get knocked out before late registration is closed, you can buy your way back in to the event.
The most desirable prize on offer will go to the overall winner of the tournament leaderboard. Full Tilt is giving the leaderboard winner a four month Black Card Pro sponsorship contract. The deal comes with 100% rakeback plus the choice of a $10k clearable bonus or entry into $12k of FTOPS events.
