Big freerolls are a hard thing to come by these days. With more and more poker sites asking you to play for tournament dollars and tickets, it almost feels like the good old days when one could build a healthy bankroll one freeroll after the other are a thing of the past.
To fight the nostalgia, every month PokerStars gives you the opportunity to relive the good old days of online poker and play in a $5,000 event at no cost.
Next Up: A $5,000 Freeroll on May 8
The next $5,000 freeroll at PokerStars begins at 15:05 ET on May 8 and, if you are loyal to PokerNews, you can already look for the event and book a seat. Qualifying for the tournament is easy and is something any player that opened an account at the poker room through our links and used our marketing codes can meet.
Scenario #1. You already play at PokerStars. Considering that PokerStars is the largest online poker site on the planet, chances are that you already have an account there. If you opened your account through PokerNews and you made your first deposit after January 1, 2016, simply register to the event and get ready to play.
