has no fewer than seven daily poker freerolls, with a prize pool of
$300. The flagship game is a $100 freeroll at Midnight EST daily.

is a new poker site with a unique concept. Like
a lot of other poker sites it has just started, but it has some
great ideas that sets it apart. Cake Poker is willing to give
away slices of "the cake!" to 3 lucky winners in January. What
that means is that it is giving shares in the actual site itself,
and when the sites grows, your slice of the cake grows too. In
real terms you effectively own shares in the company, and who
knows how much they could end up being worth in the future?
unlike a lot of other new poker sites Cake Poker has had it's
own proprietary software designed, it's not a skin (clone) of any
other site. They've got some unique features like the ability to
email your hand so that you can analyze it, and also the
facility to change your nickname to outfox tracking software.
So why not sign up to play one of the many freerolls at Cake Poker and win a slice of the cake!
Poker Hour is a surprisingly popular site with a good deal
of activity on it. It tends to be more European based so the
daily freeroll is at 18:00 GMT (UK time). This equates to 13:00
or 1pm in Eastern time, so if you're around at that time it is
certainly worth a go.
sign up time for registration is two hours before the game and
the maximum number of players is 1000. Top 50 places paid out
with the winner picking up $50.
Wingows Poker is one of these new sites with lots of small
freerolls. I know these are very popular by the response I got when I
told you about Games Grid, and Wingows is the same idea. The prize funds
are only $10 and $20, but the nice thing is that the freerolls are
limited to only 36 and 48 players so there's a great chance of a prize
The freerolls are every hour for most
of the day and registration is 20 minutes before the start of the game.
Places fill up quickly so be sure to be there right on time for signing
NON-freeroll news: There
are a lot of people who play freerolls that also have real money
accounts and love LOW BUY-IN tournaments. Low buy-in poker
tournaments are better than freerolls in a lot of ways, they are
MUCH easier to enter and the prizes are far better than you get
One of the absolute best sites for low buy-in tournaments is Bugsy's Club
of the best on the net for low cost buy-ins with great
guarantees, for example you can get into a $100 guaranteed

ever spend on a poker site!
