Texas Holdem Freerolls
Texas Holdem freerolls are the most popular form of online poker tournament on the internet. They are played by many thousands of people every single day and the popularity of freerolls is increasing at a rapid rate.
For example in the
Texas Holdem freerolls at Poker Room
they have just raised the maximum number of entrants to their two daily online Texas Hold ‘Em freerolls from 2200 to 2400 per tournament. There are two standard freerolls at Poker Room every day, so that means nearly 5000 players every single day – just for the freerolls on one site! And it’s not only the two regular freerolls that they have, there are also additional free tournaments for new players signing up to the site.
Important Note: Poker room have changed their freeroll to a new format which they are calling the $1+0 Lucky Dollar $1000 added tournament. It now costs $1 to enter which isn't quite a freeroll, but it is still incredible value! As a bonus, it's not always full now either so you have a great chance of getting signed up.
As well as Poker Room there are of course many other sites that run poker freerolls as it is a fantastic way to attract people to the site. The idea behind it is for the poker site to give away free prize money which keeps people coming back and builds loyalty to the site. And when they are there who knows.. they might even spend a few dollars at the tables!
If you are going to play the freerolls, please be aware that there are usually rules about how you can withdraw the prize money. In general you will need to play a certain amount of real money hands before you will be able to withdraw your prize – if you win one that is! Note that it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose the real money, it still counts. There is no obligation to lose a certain amount to the site before you get paid out.
So the internet poker websites aren’t so crazy after all, you need to spend real money at the tables before you can collect your winnings at the Texas Holdem freerolls.
