For the fifteenth time, the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) is ready to kickoff.  Beginning February 10th and running through February 21st, FTOPS XV will consist of 27 events and have over $17 million in guaranteed prize pools.
The prizes above and beyond the standard cash payouts are very similar to those in FTOPS past.  Those who make the final table of an event will receive a limited edition FTOPS jacket.  Anyone who wins an event will get the jacket plus a gold FTOPS jersey and a special gold jersey avatar to use when they play at Full Tilt Poker.  And the player who ends up atop the FTOPS leader board will receive the jacket and a buy-in into every FTOPS XVI event, except for the big two-day event.
Once again, Full Tilt is bringing back the “Bouncebackability” Freeroll, in which the 27 players who are the final eliminations before the money in each event will have the chance to battle it out for a seat in the FTOPS XVI Main Event.
There are also six “Challenges” for FTOPS XV:
1) Satellite Seat Challenge – satellite into two FTOPS XV events and win an entry into one of 4 special $10,000 FTOPS Sat Challenge Freeroll.  Satellite into three events and win an entry into two of these freerolls.  Four winning satellites earns three freeroll entries, and five gets an entry into all four.
2) Hold’em Challenge – there are five tasks to complete in a single No-Limit Hold’em FTOPS event.  $10,000 Hold’em Challenge Freeroll entries are available for those who accomplish at least three of the tasks.
3) Survivor Challenge – Up to four freeroll entries will be awarded to those who make it to level 10 in at least two events.
4) Double-Up Challenge – Players can earn as many as four $10,000 freeroll entries for growing their chip stack to at least double its starting size in at least two events.
5) Zero to Hero Challenge – Anyone who starts out in a Super Satellite, wins a seat into an FTOPS Satellite, then makes the FTOPS event and cashes wins a $50 bonus.  Those who take that route and make the final table get a $500 bonus.  Those who start in a Super Satellite and ultimately win the FTOPS event win a $5,000 bonus.
6) Million Dollar Challenge – Make the money in 17 FTOPS events and win $1 million.

    All of these challenges are “opt-in,” meaning that players must visit the Cashier and click on the My Promotions button to find and activate the challenges on their account.
