$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway

Download PKR Now!


Summer is finally here and what better way to celebrate than competing in $5,000 worth of freerolls on PKR in the $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion.

Running from Aug. 1 – Sep. 25 the $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway will feature five PokerNews-exclusive freerolls, each with a prize pool of $1,000, and you could be playing in all of them! For every 500 PKR Points you earn you will be placed on a list of eligible players – all fellow PokerNews players – within 48-hours of you meeting the requirements.

500 PKR Points may sound like a lot of hard work but when you consider 100 PKR Points are awarded per $1 generated in rake then 500 PKR Points is only $10; and for that you receive entry to a $1,000 freeroll that will have a limited field size due to this promotion only being open to PokerNews customers.

This excellent promotion is open to both existing and new PokerNews customers who have signed up to PKR using our links and bonus codes and made at least their first deposit. As an added bonus, new players who download PKR through PokerNews and make their first deposit will be eligible to play in the first two $1,000 freerolls! We are sure you will agree this is amazing value.

Please note your first deposit on PKR must be completed at least 48-hours before the next available $1,000 freeroll for you to be eligible to participate in it.

The first freeroll takes place on Aug. 28 at 19:00 GMT and the following tournaments will be held on Tuesdays at 19:00 GMT every week from then on.
