If we said you could play in a freeroll with a prize pool of $5,000 for as little as $10 in rake, what would you say? The good news is that’s exactly what we’re telling you as PokerNews and bet365 have joined forces for a top-notch promotion.
The first $5,000 PokerNews Open Vaults freeroll has already taken place, but the promotion will continue through Jan. 6. with an additional $5,000 freeroll. The promotion is open to new and existing customers, but only to those who created their bet365 accounts via PokerNews links or used PokerNews bonus codes.
How do you qualify? New players who make their first real-money deposit during the qualification periods will be eligible to participate in the $5,000 freeroll once they have earned 150 Merit Points. Existing customers who have signed up to bet365 via PokerNews are also welcome to compete, as long as they earn 300 Merit Points during the qualification period.
Merit Points are earned at a rate of 15 Merit Points per $1 paid in rake or tournament fees, meaning you could be playing in a $5,000 freeroll for as little as $10 in rake
The final $5,000 freeroll will take place on Jan. 6, and the qualification period runs from Dec. 16 - Jan. 5.
The PokerNews Open Vaults Freerolls schedule can be seen in the table below:
|Tournament Name||Date||Time (GMT)||Qualification period||Prize pool|
|PokerNews Open Vaults Freeroll #2||Jan. 6||20:00||Dec. 16 - Jan. 5||$5,000|
Usually, freerolls with prize pools as large as these attract thousands of entrants, which reduces the chances of winning some money dramatically. But with this promotion being a PokerNews-exclusive, players will only be competing against those who have signed up to bet365 via PokerNews, and that means the field size will be much smaller than in a typical freeroll tournament.
In addition to being able to help yourself to plenty of EV in the $5,000 freeroll tournament, PokerNews customers new to bet365 will be able to help themselves to one of the biggest first deposit bonuses in the business. By downloading bet365 via PokerNews, you will be eligible for a 200% match up to $1,000 bonus on your first deposit! Deposit $100 and receive a $200 bonus in your bet365 account. Increase that initial deposit to $500 and bet365 will match it 200% and put a $1,000 bonus in your account. This huge bonus is cleared at a rate of $10 per 1,000 Merit Points earned and you will have 60-days from your first deposit in which to clear as much of it as you can.
