Poker Freeroll News September 2007
Newsletter Survey - The results are in!
big thanks to all of you who took the trouble to write
replies to the newsletter survey, the response was very
good and quality of feedback I got was extremely helpful.
be honest, there were so many good quality efforts that
it was impossible to pick one out as the outright winner,
so what I decided to do was put all of the entries into a
draw and pick out a winner from them.
Here are the best of the replies:
|Question 1 --- What Do you like about the newsletter? |
very informative,i found freerolls i would never
have found without u,this site rocks :) --- layton |
is a good source for poker sites and freerolls.
You update the info often and good a good job of
keeping ontop of anything thats going on . ---
do I like - well the price is great! Just kidding -
we all appreciate all the hard work you put into
producing the newsletter. I do promote your
newsletter in the poker community here in London.
It's great for newbies to help them learn to play
at no cost, for people (including me) trying out
new sites, and for building a bankroll from
scratch. Your unselfish efforts in producing it also
encourages other people to give back to the poker world
and help other players for free. --- Adrian |
love the fact that the decision to join a freeroll
that I would not have necessarily known about is
being brought to my attention. It gives me a chance
to see other poker sites that I would not know
about either. I am a big boy and can make my own
decisions as to whether I want to contribute to the
poker site or not. It is ultimately up to each and
every one of us what we do. I thank you for taking
the time, and I am sure there is a lot involved in
it, to make sure we are updated on any and all new poker
sites, new freerolls and new ways to stretch our dollar at
the poker tables. Keep up the GREAT week and keep the
news a comin. --- Dave Reid |
|the news letter is a good tool for finding out where the freerolls are --- jeff |
|Lets me know all the freerolls,and I play alot of them. Thanks --- Randy Crabtree |
|I like the fact that the newsletter is constantly updated. It is well-organized and easy to follow. --- Robyn |
your subscribers aware of new sites and also
letting the US Players know if they are welcome.
--- Ed |
not too long and has made me aware of some great
offers that I would have missed otherwise ---
call for poker heaven...euro freerolls next month
look really interesting :)) p.s and it also is a
great site...looks a bit like celeb poker tho :))
--- layton |
- you do not need to change it - i look forward to
it even though I rarely play freerolls its great
info --- richie |
|Question 2 --- What Don't you like about the newsletter?
formatted, sometimes misleading ('freeroll'
requiring points etc), but minor quibbles when
compared to the advantages- havent found a better
newsletter out there! (3 others I get suck in
comparison) --- Adrian |
hate signing up at a site just to find out that I
cant play for real money because I am from America
and worse Jersey....I read your page and think I
found a new place to play download the site go to
set up an account and I am denied or sign up go to a
table and am denied...It wold be nice if you
stated right at the begining Americans or not. --- David |
|the font! (joking) --- richie |
need to have a a way to get to your site by
clicking on your address in your e-mail letters ---
Randy Crabtree |
like the fact that the news letter comes every
sunday just in time for the weekly free rolls ---
I don't like about the newsletter is that the
information is not always correct - especially as
it pertains to US players. There
are a few gaming sites that you say accept US
players when they do not. --- Robyn |
don't see anything I don't like about the
newsletter. You continue to do a fantastic job.
Keep it coming please. --- Dave Reid |
idea of separating pure freeroll from freerolls
with qualifying criteris attached, would save time
for those who will not have cash funded accounts.
--- Ed |
not a fan of entries that have a requirement to
play - all sites have some sort of reward system
for loyal players, but to call them 'freerolls' is
not quite correct. I take your point about people
wanting them - but if they are clearly designated
as having a condition attached then surely no-one
can complain. I think you once mentioned about
playing a few raked hands at a very low level to
qualify for a huge 'freeroll' - a good point. --- Adrian |
i said it rocks...any info is good info whether
its wot ur looking 4 or not --- layton |
|Question 3 --- What would you like to see more of in the newsletter?
would like to see more invitations to special
freerolls that are for members only (like you did
with 3D poker). --- Robyn |
daily or weekly summary of freerolls as well as
maybe adding some private freerolls for you members
at various sites for US players. --- Ed |
| More on what Americans can play --- Randy Crabtree |
|free cash and lots of it...dunno...maybe some jokes..lol....only joking ;-) --- layton |
I also think you should list Player Points
Freerolls and any tourneys under $2 entry ---
richie (again) |
|Prehaps a timetable of the weekly freerolls.... --- richie |
the link in the newsletter please take recipients
to the web site? Some of your links are active, but
the link to the main site has to be cut and pasted
in (well, OK, it's in the browser's Favorites
folder - but you get my point). I liked the idea of
removing the password. I'd be wary of adding too
much more to the newsletter, it says 'Freeroll'
on the tin and I'd be wary about adding too much
else. Perhaps a different newsletter with a
different title to deliver other information would work.
Just send it to the same mailing list - I don't think
you'd get many people unsubscribing - hey, it might even
grow to become bigger than the freeroll newsletter. Best
wishes, Adrian. PS: Don't enter me for the prize
draw thanks - you've done enough for me - no need
to give me money as well! Best Wishes, Adrian
Pullar. --- Adrian |
would be nice to see more freerolls and some sites
where you get free no deposit money --- jeff |
Could also organise/ mention instant bonuses plus
any special low buyins with big overlays --- Adrian |
|More of the same Please. --- Dave Reid |
|freeroll passwords --- Szabolcs

links that work and your email pops up when i seem
to have forgot about it lol and ya good job CIAO..
mark aka yzfgr8one ---
there they are, the best of the relies. I don't
necessarily agree with all of them but as I said it's
not about me - it's about you and it's great to get
genuine opinions whether they are good, bad or
the interests of fairness I asked my 10 year old
daughter Eilidh to pick a number and so the winner of the
$20 prize is...(drum roll!)
to you Layton, please let me have your Paypal address
and I'll get the money paid in right away. All complaints
the way I hope a few of you managed to get in to the
Ladbrokes $1K freeroll I mentioned on Friday, please let
me know if you managed to pick up a prize. As you can
tell from the timing of this message, I wasn't among the
you signed up for Ladbrokes Poker when I featured them a
couple of weeks ago - listen up! Even if you didn't take
a look at the following because it might be good news
for you too.
writing to invite you, our affiliates, to the
$1,000 Exclusive Monthly Freeroll. All the sign
ups who have come through you will be invited
and I hope you can make it along too.
you go to the Ladbrokes Poker Lobby, under the
MTT tab and 'Special' section, you will see
the "$1,000 Exclusive Monthly Freeroll" - the
password is 'September' and it kicks off at 6pm
GMT on Sunday, September 30th, 2007.
you have any queries, please send me an email
and I look forward to seeing you there. I will
be playing under the username TheBear1971.
Thank you for your continued support and happy poker playing!!!
See you on Sunday.
Now I don't know whether this freeroll is open to new members
who sign up today, but if you are interested in
Ladbrokes - which is Europe's largest bookmaker - you
might as well and see if you get in. I just got the
message so I don't have time to contact Ladbrokes before
As of the time of writing this there are only 30 people signed up to play - for a $1000 freeroll!
Fair Poker have added some new freerolls since we last featured
them. There's a daily $200 game with $2 rebuys for starters, as
well as the $100 tourneys that were already in place.
Poker has it's own loyalty points system and you can buy
into additional freerolls using iponts that you have
accumulated. These are on Saturdays at 15:30 for the $300
Special and 18:00 for the $500 Omaha Special.
there is a $100 daily freeroll for new players, join up
and you are good for 90 days in this freeroll. The start
time for the beginner's freeroll is 13:00 daily.
you play any of the big buy-in tournaments at Fair
Poker, you'll be able to play in the weekly $1,500
Freeroll every Sunday at 20:00. To enter, you need to have taken part in
one of the following:- the Friday $10,000 tournament,
the Saturday $15,000 tournament, the Sunday $25,000
tournament or the monthly $100,000 tournament.
Ladbrokes Poker are running a fantastic competition to win a luxury
Carribean poker cruise, a prize worth $9000 - and you can
win it through their freerolls. Here's how it works:-
the Cruise Freeroll (held each evening except Saturdays)
and win a place to the next stage, the Cruise Daily Final ( $95
+ $9 buy-in). Top three places qualify.
from the Daily Final and go forward to the Weekly Final
($900 + $50 buy-in). One place for every $950 in the
every ten players in the weekly final qualify for the big
$9000 Cruise Combo ticket. You can take a guest with you and
you'll get $1700 paid into your Ladbrokes player account to
cover travel expenses for getting to New York on 24th January
Your $9k Cruise Combo ticket includes: - Ocean view balcony cabin for you and your and guest for the 10 day tour.
- $1700 travel allowance in cash.
- Entry to the Festival of Poker Main Event ($2500).
- Hospitality, entertainment and all meals.
good? There's less than 100 cabins left on board the
luxury cruise liner ‘Explorer of the Seas’, make sure you're
in one of them!
Poker Heaven are
running something a little bit different - a poker
freeroll league! They are calling it the "European Freeroll Challenge"
and as the name suggests it's an international tournament
between the countries of Europe.
tournament itself will consist of leagues for each of
the top 15 poker playing countries in Europe and the best
players in each of the leagues will go forward to
represent their countries in the finals - with the
winners being crowned the best poker country in Europe.
action kicks off in October so you have got plenty of
time to register for the event. I would suggest though
that if you want to get involved, get over right away and
sign up for an account if you don't already have one.
There will probably be a cut-off day for registrations
where only people who are already members before the date can
take part so the sooner you get in the better.
The Newsletter survey:
to all of you who have replied so far, there's been some
good responses. I'm still looking for a few more though
so if you'd like the chance to win $20, just jot down
something in the form below. You don't need to write a
book, just a few words to let me know what's good and bad
about the newsletter is all I'm looking for.
Win a PRIZE!
This week I'm going to start off with a bit of a rant - so hold on to your seats!
I've been getting a few emails recently which have been a
bit on the negative side to say the least. People have taken the time
and effort to write to me to tell me that some of the freerolls I've
featured aren't in fact real freerolls - as they requires some sort of
While I accept
that this is the case and these type of tournaments might not be
"freerolls" in the purest of forms, I feel that it is still good
information. I know for a fact from my statistic pages that a lot of you
ARE interested in this type of game so I feel that it is worthwhile
bringing it to you.
I try never
to ONLY bring you this type of freeroll in a newsletter, whenever there
is a freeroll that requires some sort of qualification criteria it is as
an extra and there will always be information on "real" freerolls.
It's not about me! It's about you and what kind of
information you want me to bring you. I value all of you as subscribers
and want to bring you the best information every week, but most of all I
want to bring you the information that you want to read.
So, over to you. If you have an opinion on the
newsletter, whether it's good or bad, let me know. I will print your
replies next week if you take the time to write. So make yourself heard
and help to make the newsletter to be what you want to read.
To make the deal a bit sweeter for you, I am going to
pay the best reply $20! That's a nice buy-in to a poker tournament or
you can just take out the cash and spend it, it's up to you. You will
get your prize by Paypal after the winning entry is announced next
So get your skates on and
get writing! Just fill in the simple form below and tell me what you
like and what you don't like about the newsletter and what you'd like to
see in future editions.
OK then, here's a great piece of freeroll news:
Tower nGaming is running a great freeroll as a way of compensating
it's members for their site having some recent downtime.
They are calling it the "10k Player Appreciation
Freeroll" and the prize fund is - believe it or not -
for all of you waiting for a catch, there is one. You
need to have a real money account to get in the game. By
the way this is urgent, you need to be signed up before 12th September to qualify.
Host is a site that you might not be too familiar with,
but it's got some good freerolls available.
As well as freerolls, Poker Host has a variety of great tournaments where you can win a share of up to a guaranteed $200,000.
Club Poker is available to USA players and has a very interesting
tournament that I think you'd like. For only $0.20 + $0.02 (that's a
total of only 22 cents!) you can get in to play for a place in a $600
guaranteed minimum rebuy game. The top 10 places win through to the $600
game and the player numbers are VERY low in these tourneys!
so it's not entirely free as in a freeroll, but in a lot of ways it's
much better. You have an almost one in three chance of reaching the
$600guaranteed tournament and a real chance of taking home some
worthwhile cash. Oryou could sit in a freeroll for three hours for the
chance of a share of $50 andsave yourself the $0.22 entry fee!
Club also have a great $15,000 Loyalty Freeroll
tournament that they run. The qualification for this one is 500 BBPs
(see site for current details of how to obtain BBPs) which
gets you a free entry to the freeroll on 8th September
at 2pm CST. Judging by the number of people who have
qualified and registered - 640 at the time of writing -
it can't be too difficult to collect enough BBPs to play.
