Would you like to play in not one but two freeroll tournament that each have a prize pool of $5,000? Would you like to play in these freerolls for as little as $10 in rake? Of course you do, why wouldn't you? Keep on reading to discover how PokerNews and bet365 have come up with a fantastic promotion that will allow you to play for our share of $10,000.
The $10,000 PokerNews Open Vaults promotion started Nov. 23 and will continue all the way through Jan. 6, during which time PokerNews customers will have the chance to compete in two $5,000 freerolls. This excellent promotion is open to new and existing customers, but only those who have created their bet365 accounts via PokerNews links or have used PokerNews bonus codes.
The first of these $5,000 freerolls will take place in less than two weeks time, on Dec. 16, so you are rapidly running out of time if you want to meet the entry requirements for PokerNews Open Vaults Freeroll #1. Thankfully, the entry requirements are so low that meeting them is a very easy task.
New players who make their first real money deposit during the qualification period (Nov.23 - Dec. 15 for the first freeroll) will be eligible to participate in the next available $5,000 freeroll once they have earned just 150 Merit Points. Existing customers — who have signed up to bet365 via PokerNews — are also welcome to complete, 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 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 #1||Dec. 16||20:00||Nov. 23 - Dec. 15||$5,000|
|PokerNews Open Vaults Freeroll #2||Jan. 6||20:00||Dec. 16 - Jan. 5||$5,000|
Please be aware that the Merit Points you earn are not cumulative and players must accumulate the required number of points during each qualification period in order to play in the next available $5,000 freeroll.
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.
PokerNews customers new to bet365 will be able to help themselves to a substantial first deposit bonus of up to $1,000. 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.
