Ok so here is how it went,I got a free 50$ bankroll from bankrollmob.com and proceeded to win some cash...made it to 280$ and released 10$ of my 50$ bankroll I left 40$ in my account and cashed out the rest...4 days later my withdrawal was cancelled and returned to my account,I got an email stating i could not take out part of my free bankroll until i earn 1000 FTPs,the affiliate free bankroll site clearly states that any amount over the amount of the free bankroll given can be cashed out at any time and that the free 50$ can be cashed out after accumulating 1000FTPs and released in 5$ increments every 100 FTPs...

so my deposit was returned and i cashed out the amount they returned minus 50$ just to make sure...and the sad part is that 40$ i had left was zeroed out.

In short, the affiliate site have lied, and made the offer seem better than it was. However, having unredeemed bonus zeroed out is quite commonplace, and presumably you have still manage to harvest some $270 from this free chip - not a bad result, and if you had pursued the $40 by trying to earn more FTPs, you may have hit the inevitable losing streak (unless you are a very good poker player).

Perhaps Full Tilt came to an accommodation with you, and let you cash out as per the affiliate site rule, rather than having to fulfill the 1000 FTPs rule.

For any offer spotted on an affiliate site, it is best to check the rules from the CASINO or POKER site, and not rely on the affiliate site being correct. The affiliate site have an interest in you participating, and some will misrepresent an offer just to get you to sign up and generate their commission.

As you are undoubtedly an advantage player of some knowledge and skill (100% RTG - is it abuse?), you should have been prepared, and this should not have come as a surprise to you.
