PokerStars $5,000 Weekly Freeroll Series
Share this

A series of weekly freerolls giving away a total of $67,500 in cash prizes – absolutely free – is running right now on PokerStars, the world’s biggest online poker site!!! To play this exclusive series you need to be a PokerWorks’ referred player and earn 20 VIP Player Points during the week before every $5,000 event. The series runs until April 25th and gives you 10 chances to play for your share of the free cash. Plus, every time you finish in the top 30 players in the weekly $5,000 freeroll, you are rewarded with leaderboard points. At the end of the promotion the top 15 players on the player leaderboard will share an extra $7,500 prize pool!

The $5,000 PokerNews Freerolls run every Wednesday at 14:00 ET (19:00 GMT) and all you need to do to take a seat is collect 20 VPPs during a week-long qualification period. However, this only applies to the already existing PokerStars players who signed up through PokerWorks. If you're a new player, the only requirement is that you make your first deposit after registering your new account through PokerWorks and the ticket is automatically issued into your account.

Two $5,000 freerolls have already taken place, but there's plenty more to go and a bunch of free cash to win. Here's the full $67,500 PokerStars PokerNews Freeroll Series Schedule:
