There is nothing that slot machines enthusiasts enjoy more than free spins, because these provide them with the chance of winning real cash without taking any chances. Conversely, poker players are fascinated by freeroll tournaments, which just as the name suggests allow them to buy in without paying a dime. Ladbrokes runs a string of such competitions, but by far the most popular one is the €100,000 Depositor Freeroll which is reserved exclusively to new players.

The prospect of winning a share of €100,000 is alluring and the only prerequisite is to deposit a qualifying amount and start accumulating status points. Those who cross the predetermined threshold will collect tokens that can be used to participate in this tournament. If you thought that things couldn’t possibly get better than this, know that the online poker room runs a special $200,000 freeroll throughout this winter. This event was imagined as a continuation of the monthly depositor freeroll series and it has a guaranteed prize pool that can be exceeded if enough players choose to re-buy.

Special perks for new members

These two are the most prominent depositor freerolls, but they are only of the tip of the iceberg and every month similar tournaments are being organized. In January and February, there will be four distinct €25,000 depositor freerolls, which are scheduled to take place every single Sunday. In order to be granted access to any of these events, players are supposed to deposit a minimum of €10 and earn at least 10 status points on any cash game tables, over a single week.

Those who do so will get to choose their freeroll of choice and whatever they manage to win at the tables, they keep. The freerolls started in the final days of December, but many more are scheduled in January, with the first one running on January 4 and the last one to decide a winner on January 25. Each of these tournaments will split €25k among the most successful players, so a total of €100,000 will be awarded to new members, by these 4 freerolls alone.

Start each month on the right foot

By February, players will probably already know the drill and will be happy to hear that the first event is scheduled for the first day of the month and 5 p.m. GMT. In February, all tournaments take place on Thursday, which is great news for those who don’t want to wait for the weekend to play poker
