The long-awaited, first-ever PokerStars open $1,000,000 freeroll is finally set to take place March 19, 2016.

The freeroll is open to anyone who plays on the site and will award at least $20,000 to first-place with somewhere between 30-50,000 players making the money.

Previously PokerStars’ $1m freerolls were only available to players who had achieved SuperNova Elite status.

The only way into the $1m freeroll is to win your spot through a 90-player Sit & Go with the top nine players getting a ticket.

Here’s how you can get a free ticket into the 90-player satellites.

1. Players can open their ‘Challenges’ window to opt-in for a ‘PokerStars $1 Million Freeroll’ satellite ticket. After opting in players will need to play just one real money poker hand or one real money tournament, at any stake level, to release the ticket into their account.

2. Players can then use their ticket to enter any of the 90-man Sit & Go ‘PokerStars $1 Million Freeroll’ satellites running around the clock.

3. The top nine players in each will advance to the ‘PokerStars $1 Million Freeroll’.

4. Players who don’t successfully qualify on their first attempt may get a second satellite ticket by making a deposit of $20 or more using bonus code ‘MILLION1’.

The contest will cap out at a million entries so make sure you register for the momentous event relatively early.
