Full Tilt Poker is a downloadable poker room that’s compatible on the majority of computers running Windows or Mac. There isn’t an instant play version of the software, but it only takes a couple minutes to download the software by following the steps below.
Download Full Tilt Poker on Windows
The minimum requirements to download Full Tilt Poker are Windows XP, 266 MHz Pentium CPU, 30MB of disk space, 64 MB of RAM and a screen resolution of 800×600. If your computer isn’t ancient you’ll have no problem downloading the software suite.
As soon as you visit Full Tilt you’ll notice a big red “Play Now” button on the homepage. Click on this button to launch the download and then follow the steps below to complete the installation of the Full Tilt Poker software on your Windows computer or laptop.
- Click on “Run” and then “Run” again if a security warning pops up
- Click “Next” and then accept the terms and conditions on the next page
- Click “Next” and then “Install” to finish the download process.
You’ll now be prompted to launch the software where you’ll be able to register a new account at Full Tilt Poker. All you need to fill-in initially on the register form is the screen name and password you want plus your email. You can also choose your 3D avatar now.
After registering you’ll now be able to access the Full Tilt Poker lobby and cashier from the software. The next step is to complete a deposit, but before that you have to fill in the rest of your personal information including your name, address and phone number.
Download Full Tilt Poker on Mac
Full Tilt was one of the first poker rooms to have Mac software. You have to be running Mac OS X 10.5 or better and have an Intel based Macintosh to download the software. The other requirements include having at least 512MB of RAM and 30MB of disk space.
Click “Next” to begin the download on your Mac and accept the license agreement
You can now choose the destination folder or use the default folder by clicking “Install”
Click “Finish” on the last screen to launch Full Tilt Poker
Download Rush Poker on the iOS
A few months ago Full Tilt released a beta version of their Rush Poker iOS app. I expect once the bugs are completely worked out the team at FTP will work on an Android app. In order to download the iOS Rush Poker app you need to be running iOS 4.0 or higher. You can download this at AintLuck.com.
The app will work on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. You can only access Rush Poker on the app currently, but you can also sign-up for a new account directly on your mobile device or tablet, which means you don’t need a computer to play at Full Tilt Poker.
In the future I expect Full Tilt to launch a complete mobile solution that includes normal ring table games plus poker tournaments of varying sizes. I’d also like to see an Android app released plus the ability to play in a mobile browser on other operating systems.
