Freeroll Poker Tournaments

The term freeroll is also used to describe a tournament with no entry fee but the use of the terms 'free' and 'no entry fee' can be misleading because some freerolls require a payment at some point to gain entry to the tournament.
The prize pool, instead of being an accumulation of the entry fees minus a fee for the 'house' (the way pay-to-play tournaments are typically constructed), is derived from a donation from the house, sponsorship fees, admission charged to spectators, broadcast rights fees, or any combination of these. Sometimes a particular cardroom or casino (either traditional or online) will offer a freeroll tournament to frequent players. Invitation-only tournaments are frequently freerolls.
Freerolls at Internet poker sites should not be confused with their close counterpart -- play money tournaments. Freerolls are different from play-money tournaments in two respects. Play money tournaments usually require the 'payment' of play money and the tournament winnings are play money. Freeroll tournaments can be genuinely free, may require a payment of points (from a point system developed by the site), or on some occasions require a deposit of funds into the player's account. The winnings are either real money, points, merchandise or entry tickets (invitations) to other tournaments.
Most if not all Internet poker sites have freeroll tournaments although in many cases require a payment of points to play. These points typically can only be earned by paying and playing real money hands which in essence is a payment required to play their 'freerolls' and therefore a loose use of the term 'freeroll'. There are Internet sites that allow playing in freerolls without payment of any kind and with the chance to win real money.
It is not unusual to pay to play in a feeder tournament that gives the winner(s) a free entry to another tournament but it is debatable whether these second level tournaments can be called 'freerolls', since they require a buy-in, albeit smaller than the major tournament one. More often, such tournaments are called 'satellites'. This format is typical of freeroll tournaments both on the Internet and in the 'brick and mortar' sites.
The Professional Poker Tour is one such 'freeroll', with entrants being required to qualify through their results in previous tournaments. Sponsorship and broadcast-rights fees fund the prize pools.

Oh , so true so many of these sites you have to have so many raked hands which is bull. Thats the only reason i like ultimatebet, they have a $50 f-roll about 8 times a day, and no raked hands required, no-deposit required, and you win real money. Plus they have another tourney 8 x a day that leads to another tourney , which is also free. And your right so many of them u have to deposit before u can cash out :hit to them. Free should be free.

I wiil admit they are what got me started playing online poker but personally I'd rather play a buyin with added money. To each his own, it's usually a more talented field with less donks. Good Luck on the felt. streakrockssss

any freeroll in cake network?
Actually, Intertops Poker is part of the Cake network. Intertops has a noon and 600pm freeroll everyday, Registration starts 2 hours before the tourney and fills up fast as it allows only 250 players. The prizes are 1 $20 ticket, 2 $10 tickets and 5 $1 tickets.

Oh yeah. Vacationing at Westgate Smoky Mountains Resort & Spa for five days. Too late to go on a walk, but a fine time to get in a tournament by StreakGaming. Three pans of enchiladas almost finished in the oven. StreakGaming monthly $200 game at Intertops starts in 45 minutes.

These Intertops Poker Tourneys Freerolls have changed times. The 6:00PM one (US CST) is the same.. however the noon one is now at 10:00 PM US CST.. or 11:00 PM US EST. Everything else about them is the same. These fill up fairly quick now days.. used to be they only had maybe 80 to 100 enter.. but now they fill up in less than a half hour most times. The late one fills up a good bit slower though. Good luck on getting ur tickets!

Unfortunately there exist no good freerolls tournaments anymore in the net. All freerolls are full with thousand of players and even if you win you get just 2$ or something like that :)
