DUBLIN, April 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Full Tilt Poker is pleased to announce the launch of Steps Tournaments, offering players the chance to win entry to larger buy-in tournaments - and claim shares of bigger prize pools - by working their way up the steps of a progressive series of tournaments.

Starting with buy-ins as low as $3.30, Steps Tournaments play like regular tournaments, except that players compete for Tournament Tickets to the next Step in the tournament series. Even if players don't advance to the next step, Steps Tournaments also award seats at the same level or a lower level. Players can also buy in directly at any step they choose or purchase Tournament Tickets.

Tournament Tickets are another option for players to buy in to their favorite tournaments, featuring a wide range of denominations and tournament options. Each Tournament Ticket is worth a specific buy-in amount and can be used to buy in to any tournament for the face value of that Tournament Ticket.

Players can win Tournament Tickets through Steps Tournaments, a variety of Satellite Tournaments and promotions, including Full Tilt Poker's Steps to the Main Event tournaments, offering players the chance to win a $12K WSOP* Main Event prize package for as little as $3.30.
