There's more to this $5,000 Freeroll money making jewel than the weekly $5,000 Freeroll series - as if that wasn't enough - but you are also competing in a player leaderboard that is running in conjunction with the Freeroll series. Each Freeroll you play in not only sends cash to the top finishers but you also receive points. The leaderboard has an additional $7,500 up for grabs. Play each weekly $5,000 Freeroll and rack up as many leaderboard points as you can because when the final Freeroll is over on April 25th and the smoke clears, the top 15 leaderboard players will pick up more cash from the $7,500 that's waiting at the end.
