Frequently Asked Questions about Freerolls

What is a freeroll ?

A freeroll is a tournament with no entry fees.  Normally, freerolls are used by poker rooms as part of their marketing and promotions to attract players to play at their rooms or poker sites.

Do I need to deposit cash to play a freeroll ?
