From tiny acorns grow mighty oaks, or so the saying goes, and that could be the case here if you play in the PokerNews-exclusive $5,000 freeroll held at PokerStars on August 7, 2016.
Online poker is full of stories of players running up a huge bankroll from money won in freeroll tournaments, and becoming legitimate stars of the game, traveling the world playing in the biggest games in town.
Most of those freeroll wins were relatively tiny, as is the nature of most freerolls’ prize pools, but thanks to PokerNews, you could be either kick starting your bankroll, or giving it a significant boost because the freeroll we are giving you access to has a whopping $5,000 prize pool; think of it as your very own PokerStars Championship event!
The PokerStars $5,000 freeroll opens its doors at 15:05 ET (21:05 CET) on August 7, and has late registration available until the end of the second 10-minute-long level.
In true freeroll style, entry to this value-packed tournament is free, but to ensure you are only playing against fellow PokerNews readers, only those of you who have downloaded PokerStars via our links, have used our marketing codes, and made their first deposit onto PokerStars in 2016, are eligible to play.
If you don’t have a PokerStars account, here’s what you need to do:
- Click this link to open PokerStars in a new tab
- Create your free account
- Enter the marketing code “PNEWS4”
- Use the code "STARS600" when making your first deposit
- Register for the $5,000 freeroll
While the exact prize money is determined by the number of entrants in the freeroll, those finishing in the money places will share a guaranteed $5,000! What you do with your winnings is up to you. You could spend it on satellites to the upcoming EPT Barcelona and see if you can win yourself a package, and essentially freeroll yourself towards a shot at a probably €1 million first place prize in sunny Spain.
