Christmas is coming, and Santa has some special offers for online poker players including free money. The only obstacles in your way are other players who want to get their hands on it too.
Although there is no such thing as a free lunch, as Milton Friedman said, you can get free entries into selected poker tournaments, and if you get lucky, maybe you'll win £3.25 like AuntieEdna did on William Hill earlier this month.
First, the world's largest rakeback affiliate, RakeTheRake, is offering a freeroll frenzy this Thanksgiving. Sign up here, then following the instructions carefully, register with Cake Poker, Carbon Poker, Americas Cardroom or Minted Poker. Or all four. Thanksgiving is nearly here, so hurry. You will also receive rakeback (get paid to play) if you sign up through RakeTheRake.
Hollywood Poker also has some special offers, including two $2,500 races: one for cash players, another for tournament players. This is the site that styles itself “where the stars come to play”, so you may just find yourself sitting next to your favourite film star in one of their tournaments.
Coral is offering an exclusive $5,000 RakeTheRake promotion to the first 200 existing RTR Eurobet members to sign up with the site. Each of these lucky people will have $25 put on their accounts. This offer ends Nov. 30.
There is no rakeback on PokerStars, the site that on Dec. 4 is holding the biggest tournament in history for a $1 buy-in, but it does have lots of other offers including a special poker league for UK and Irish players. There are also daily qualifiers. Enter one of these for free to qualify for weekly round 2 tournament with a $2,000 prize pool. The games vary, they are not all No Limit Hold 'Em, and it is not too difficult to qualify because you can enter qualifiers all day long everyday.
Watch out for further offers nearer Christmas, which is now only a month away.
