Freerolls are special online poker tournaments that serve as an entry to a major tournament. A lot of online casinos and poker rooms offer freerolls to reward the more active players and of course recruit new ones. You enter a freeroll without any risk, because there is no entry fee. The whole idea behind freerolls is that you can participate for free, while the prize is guaranteed by the poker room where you are playing. The prize money remains unchanged, because it doesn’t depend on the fees collected from the players. The entry requirements are different for every casino.
Freerolls provide the perfect for chance for novice players to improve their poker skills without risking anything. The best thing is that you are playing for real money, in a real tournament, without having any risk at all. You can participate in such freerolls as often as you want. Freerolls really are a Win-Win situation, because you either win money, or experience, or even both.
Considering the characteristics of freerolls, it should not come as surprise the fact that too many people want to join the party, so quite often, there are limits to the number of participants per tournament. Hence, you should be quick when it comes to signing up for freerolls. Usually, the subscription period starts just one hour before the actual tournament gets going. That’s why you should know when a free roll starts, so it’s a good idea to constantly check the special freerool schedule websites.
