When you hear the word free, it’s usually wrapped around marketing gimmicks and petty free gifts to draw your attention and get you hooked. These less-than-stellar free offerings could be any number of things: spin a wheel to get a sticker, fill out a form with your information for a chance to win a trip, line up for hours only to get a branded logo t-shirt — you see where this is going, right?
Most of the free offerings are rarely worth making the effort and time to get there and collect.
We want to tell you about a free offer! It takes a little effort but there’s much more than a key chain or a free spin at the end.
This free offer is filled with free money and the beautiful part of it is it’s waiting at Full Tilt and PokerStars and you don't have to leave home, or stand in line, or open a mystery envelope to see if you really did win something of value.
You get to use your poker skill to play in two freerolls that have a combined prize pool of $7,500! Yuppers, that's real cash!
PokerNews has two exclusive freeroll tournaments coming up on August 7, one is hosted by PokerStars with a $2,500 prize pool and the other at Full Tilt with a $5,000 prize pool. Be sure to treat yourself to both freerolls and play your best game to collect real cash money.
Only a Few Hours Left to Qualify!
In order to take a seat in one — or both — you must qualify. That makes these freerolls even more lucrative because only players that qualify are allowed to take a seat and that means you will be playing against a much smaller field which gives you a better chance of finishing in the money.
Qualifying varies. New players that are signing up through our links take a different route to get a ticket to the freerolls than a previously referred PokerNews' player takes. Keep reading and you'll discover how easy it is to qualify.
