Many online poker rooms offer freerolls. However, most of these games give you chance at playing for small amounts of cash.
While this is nice and certainly a good way to build a bankroll without taking any risk, wouldn't it be nice if you were instead playing for some serious cash for a change?
The good news is that, thanks to our friends at PokerStars, this is all about to change. The world's largest online poker room is hosting the $1 Million Poker Freeroll Dec. 1 at 2:04 ET where the winner will walk away with a cool $10,000 and many others will see their bankrolls grow for free!
Getting involved in this freeroll couldn't be any easier. All you need to do is to click on the Challenges button in the PokerStars client, scroll down to the $1 Million Freeroll challenge, choose a task and complete it. The two tasks you can choose from are either playing just one real money ring game or Zoom Poker hand or entering one real money online poker tournament. The challenges reset each day from Nov. 22-30.
Once you have completed a challenge, you will be entered into the following day's freeroll. From Nov. 23-30, these are all-in shootouts that you don't even need to be logged in to play. The top 8,192 players will automatically be entered into the $1 Million Freeroll on Dec. 1!
For those completing the challenge on Nov. 30, the Dec. 1 freeroll will be skill-based and will be awarding seats into the $1 Million Freeroll.
One side note is that once you earn your seat to the $1 Million Freeroll, there is no point in continuing to opt into future challenges as you will be excluded from any of the other feeder freeroll tournaments.
