Online poker sites like to use a series of perks to entice players to choose their site over their competitors. Most of those perks involve the site’s loyalty and rewards program. By earning experience points, players open themselves to offers of cash back, free tournament tickets and more.
But there is another kind of perk that’s much easier to take advantage of: the freeroll. Basically, freerolls are poker tournaments that can be played without putting up any money.
You know, for free.
While freerolls seldom offer up big prize money, they are great way for beginning players to learn the various tournament formats nearly risk-free. And if they play well, they can win cash, bonus money or tournament entry tickets.
Even if you are a more experienced player, freerolls are still worth checking out for a little stress-free fun.
Here’s a look at some of the freeroll offers at online poker sites.
The folks at WSOP.com know freerolls are a favorite, and they offer up a $100 freeroll every day. This gives WSOP players a chance to build their bankrolls for buy-ins to other tournaments.
The tournaments are held nightly at 7 p.m. Eastern Time. It’s a nine-seat table format with players starting with 2,000 chips. The blinds begin at 10/20, with 10-minute levels. The top 20 percent of finishers earn cash.
You can play the $100 Daily Freeroll anytime, but seats are capped at 600 players, so you may have to move quickly to get in on the action.
WSOP.com also offers the monthly Hero Freeroll, a $1,000 freeroll open to veterans or current members of the U.S. armed forces as well as police and fire departments. You’ll have to confirm your status to play, but after that you’ll get a freeroll ticket every month.

The same holds true for PokerStarsNJ.com, which also has a regular schedule of daily freeroll tournaments. But PokerStars also holds special freerolls as part of its rewards program, including a $5,000 and $10,000 freeroll every Saturday.
