Off to the Races With PKR's $5,000 Summer Speedway Freerolls

Posted at 12:15 2012-08-29 by PokerNetwork Staff

If summer were a race, it would be nearing the final lap. But it’s not too late to take advantage of the exclusive $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion on PKR!

The $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway is still offering four more PokerNews-exclusive freerolls from Sept. 4-25, each boasting a prize pool of $1,000. To play, all you need to do is earn 500 PKR Points. From there, every 500 PKR Points you earn will get you an entry to another freeroll! PKR Points are easy to earn because they are awarded at a rate of 100 per $1 generated in rake, so you could find yourself eligible to play all the remaining freerolls for just $20 in rake.

As if $5,000 in freerolls isn’t incentive enough for new players, by downloading PKR through PokerNews and making your first deposit, you will have a choice of three sign-up bonuses! Enter the bonus code "PNPKR5" and you will receive $5 free when you make your first deposit. If you would like a more substantial bonus, enter the bonus code "PNPKR150" for a 100% match up to $150 bonus. Last, but certainly not least, is the bonus code "PNPKR500" that awards a massive 125% up to $500 first-deposit bonus.

Please note: New players will automatically be entered into the first two $1,000 freerolls. To be eligible, you must download PKR through PokerNews, use our bonus codes and make their first deposit at least 48-hours before one of the $1,000 freerolls takes place.

The next $1,000 freeroll in the $5K PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion takes place at 19:00 GMT on Sept. 4, with each subsequent freeroll taking place at the same time on Tuesdays.

As you can see from the schedule, the qualification period for the remaining four freerolls, which began at the beginning of August, is happening now. If you’ve been playing on PKR since then, you’ve probably earned points toward this promotion already. If not, you have plenty of time to accumulate points towards a freeroll entry, which will see players sit down with a generous starting stack containing 3,000 chips and increased blinds every 10 minutes.
