Deposit and Win FREE Cash Every Day!

Make a deposit now and you’ll be rewarded with entry to four $1,000 freerolls per day for 31 days - that’s more than $100,000 in free tournament value! Plus, if you are a first-time depositor, use the bonus code ‘STARS600’ and you’re also eligible for the regular 100% welcome bonus up to $600.

Want to keep playing once your ticket has expired? Simply reload your account and you’ll be credited with a new one. You can use the reload code ‘100K’ once a month, which gives you another 31 days of play from the time of your deposit.

The $1,000 freeroll tourneys also use a special freebuy format. This means that entry is free, but you can re-buy as many times as you want for the first hour for just $0.30, boosting the prize pool each time. It’s one of the biggest daily freeroll series PokerStars has ever offered, giving you great value on your deposit.

How to Play the 100K Depositor Freerolls


Deposit using the relevant code below and your account will be credited with the special ticket. To take full advantage and increase your chances of winning more cash, reload as soon as your current ticket expires.

* First time depositors: use code ‘STARS600’. Don’t forget that you will also be eligible for the regular welcome bonus.

* Reloaders: use code ‘100K’

Freerolls run four times a day at these times: 04:00 ET, 10:00 ET, 15:00 ET & 21:00 ET. You can find the freerolls listed in the PokerStars lobby under ‘Tourney’ & ‘Freeroll’.

Please Note: The daily $1,000 freerolls are scheduled to run until May 20. Deposits made after April 19 will not receive the full 31 days.

Too bad that these are rebuy tourneys, or else I would have deposited, which I've never done on any site ever.

I am curious to see how big the prize pool will get in these freerolls!

If you're interested in seeing 9-way all-in action in the first hand on just about every table, these are the tourneys for you.

I plan on railing them, it's gonna be hilarious. I'd love to play in them to let my inner donk run wild.

Question about the re-buys adding to the prize-pool. Is this $1k added or guaranteed? Depending on the starting field, I can easily see these adding $1500 worth of re-buys.

On another site where I tried playing poker, the majority of their games were rebuys. Even the supposed freeroll games all had this same feature. Mcrissinger is so right! These games are a shovemonkey's delight. Can remember some of them having 4 to 8 players going all-in each hand and then rebuying.

Yes, it makes the pots higher, but until that rebuy period ends, insanity is the rule, not the exception. I'm curious why the site would do this since there is nothing gained by the site whenever a player rebuys. Unless the prize pool is a guaranteed amount, in which case the rebuys might be used to offset the costs.

Hmmmm ----- $1,000 divided by 30¢ = 3,334 rebuys. If the game is like the astrology freerolls with 9,000 players, then one rebuy by a third of the field eliminates the cost.

There seem to be a lot of payouts too, which'll be nice



I played quite a few of those world-record 10cent tourneys with the $1000 added, and they were attracting between 1500 and 2000 people ... wonder if that'll be about the same - that was a nice size

PS Couldn't help but notice that these are scheduled on our within the hour of Open League games ... maybe Stars is hoping these might been seen by freeroll enthusiasts as an alternative way to building a bankroll?

Hopefully they won't take 36 hours to play or whatever

I saw this on the webpage: http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/prom...tor-freerolls/

So I guess if we deposit using the code on Jan. 19th, and on the 19th of every month, that should cover the entire promotion period? I guess maybe it also gives us all a chance to watch a couple first on the 19th and see what they're like ... if they're attracting 25,000 people, maybe I'll pass - if it's 1,500 to 2,500, maybe I'll give them a try

I worded it badly

You know what I was worried about is depositing early, and then depositing again when the month ran out, and then again, and again, and then having to deposit at the end to get the ticket for the remaining two days if I've become addicted to them by then And I've been getting charged like a $4 processing fee when I make a deposit using a credit card - is everybody else getting that? Some sort of processing fee ... I keep depositing to get free tickets for stuff ...

Anyways ... maybe it's already okay to deposit and have the full period covered if each ticket lasts for 31 days, since February only has 29 days, and April only has 30? Meh ... will just wait until the 19th

Howdy Folks,

l will give this a try, here's what l'm going to do,

It cost me $29.46 to get $24.40, this was a pre-paid credit card, so it did cost me $5.06 to play the freerolls.....hiccup

l will play as much of the freerolls that l can, l will not re-buy, this way the cost will be $5.06 to play about 80 games, that's my goal for these.

It will be for different reasons why peeps will play this, but mind will be that l have nothin better to do...hiccup

l will be playin limp,fold and shove game...hiccup

Good Luck all

cheers

I believe you can only use 1 promo per deposit. sorry dude.

Feel free to correct me if someone knows different.

If you get a ticket today, it's good through February 17th.
