But wait, there's more! Along with the $5,000 freerolls, a player leaderboard is launched as well with an additional $7,500 up for grabs. Each freeroll not only rewards cash to the top finishers, but also gives away points. At the end of the promo, players with the most points will get their share of the $7,500 prize pool. The top 30 players in each tournament will receive leaderboard points and when the final $5,000 Freeroll is over on April 25th, the top 15 players on the leaderboard will receive additional cash from the $7,500 pot.
Points for finishing in the top 30 in the weekly $5,000 freerolls:
So what happens when you collect a bunch of points? If your bunch is bigger than anyone else's, you receive the biggest slice of the $7,500 pie – a $1,500 cash prize. However, the leaderboard winnings will not be released until the end of the very last $5,000 freeroll which means you need to play as many of them as you can and place as high as you can in each and every one of them.
These are the $7,500 Leaderboard Prize Payouts
An important thing to remember is that you will receive a ticket for the $5,000 freeroll once you meet the qualification requirements.
