Bet365 Open Vaults Freerolls

Want to play in a freeroll with a prize pool of $5,000 for as little as $10 in rake? Now you can as PokerNews and bet365 have joined forces for a top-notch promotion, but you’d better hurry as there’s less than a week left to qualify.

The $5,000 PokerNews Open Vaults freeroll promotion, which is open to new and existing customers who created their bet365 accounts via PokerNews links or used PokerNews bonus codes, will culminate on Sunday, January 6 with a $5,000 freeroll.

Qualification for that freeroll has been running since Dec. 16 and will end on Jan. 5, which means you still have four days left to qualify. How do you do that? If you’re a new player, just make your first real-money deposit during the qualification period and you 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 PokerNews Open Vaults Freerolls schedule can be seen in the table below:

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.
