Share this

Starting tomorrow, February 8th, the exclusive $5,000 Freeroll series on the world's largest poker site, PokerStars, kicks off at 14:00 ET. Only those to sign up to PokerStars via PokerWorks* will be able to play for their share of the $67,500 prize pool! Weekly freerolls run every Wednesday at 14:00 ET (19:00 GMT) and earning 20 VIP Player Points (VPPs) each week will get you an entry in the race. Each freeroll features a $5,000 prize pool that totals $60,000 in free cash given away over the course of 12 tournaments. The first weekly freeroll takes off tomorrow, while the final tournament runs on April 25th.

In order to play the $5,000 weekly freerolls you need to download PokerStars via PokerWorks and use the PokerStars marketing code POKERWORKS upon sign up. If you're a newly registered player, you will receive an invitation to the upcoming freeroll as soon as you make your first deposit. However, to receive tickets to the rest of the free tournaments you will have to earn 20 VPPs in the week prior the start of the event.

Here is the full $67,500 PokerStars PokerNews Freeroll Series Schedule

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.
