Freeroll Spotlight: $500k and $10k Class Freerolls on PokerStars

Pokerstars Logo

Two new freeroll promotions have been added to the PokerStars 10th Anniversary celebrations with a grand total of $600,000 up for grabs.

For cash game players, the 10th Anniversary ring-game leaderboard promo will hand out $1,000,000 across ten days and then cap things off with a massive $500k freeroll on Dec. 11.

From Nov. 23-Dec. 2 each ring-game level at PStars – from 1c/2c to $200/$400 in No-Limit Hold’em and 2c/4c to $1k/$2k in Fixed Limit – wil have its own leaderboard.

Players who play the most hands at each stake and earn the most VPPs will win the biggest share of $50,000 in cash every day. Each leaderboard period lasts for 24 hours and then the rankings are reset.

Any player who finishes in the top 1,000 on any of the leaderboards will be awarded a ticket to the exclusive $500k freeroll at 12:30 ET on Dec. 11.

Entry tickets will be awarded by December 8 with only one ticket available per player.

$10,000 "Class" Freerolls

Ten more separate freerolls will also run just a few minutes apart on Dec. 10 to celebrate every year PokerStars has been in existence (2001-2010).

All players are eligible according to the year in which they registered their PokerStars account and by earning 1 VIP Player Point (VPP) any time in November.

Each freeroll will have a prize pool of $10,000 plus a $15,780 package for the 2012 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure for the winner.

More Anniversary Celebrations

PokerStars has also added 100 Trivia Tourneys that will run throughout the 10th Anniversary festival from December 1-18.

Answer the trivia question correctly and you can buy-in for the next tournament for only $0.10 with a total of $100,000 to play for.

The time for each tourney will only be announced 30 minutes before it starts so you'll need to stay logged in to the client to catch it.

The password for each tournament is the answer to the trivia question in the registration message. All of the answers are a year, in the form YYYY, e.g. ‘2005’.

A $10 million Sunday Million and 100 $15k PCA packages have already been announced as part of the anniversary celebrations.
