As awesome as Fortune Poker is, not all of the news can be good. Their FPP program is on hold, but as high rollers there know they already have a pretty awesome loyalty program in James the manager and the rakeback program. If you live outside of the US and are not a member of Fortune, you need to head over to Rakeback Resource and sign up. Dealer Dan was bragging to me today about how some fish he had notes on from over a year ago was still playing the same fishy way today. This is an email I received from Fortune about the program.

Dear Valued Players,

As most of you know, Fortune Poker launched the FPP program (Frequent Player Points) over a year ago. While we anticipated that this would be a great loyalty program for our players, we noticed that there are some flaws in the system that need to be ironed out for it to be an enjoyable addition to the Fortune Poker Promotions. After much debate, we have decided to do the following:

As of January 1st, 2009, we have put the FPP Program on hold until further notice. All players who had an FPP balance in their account will now see that it is set to zero. You have NOT lost these FPPs and you will get your balance back. We anticipate our new and improved Loyalty Points System to be completed in approximately 2 months time. You will be notified through our Newsletter any updates on the program and we will be consulting with our players to ensure the system is suited best for all. Once the system is up, all FPPs will be credited back to each player.

On behalf of Fortune Poker, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience this has caused – however; please keep in mind that by doing this, we are allowing all of our players to use the FPP program without any restrictions (as there are many now). I

f you have any further questions or concerns regarding this email (or any other matter regarding Fortune Poker) please feel free to email me directly and I would be happy to help you.

Happy New Year to everyone and we wish you a very prosperous and healthy 2009! Kind Regards,

Jen @ Fortune Poker
