Rev Your Engines with PKR's $5,000 Summer Speedway
Posted at 19:15 2012-08-15 by PokerNetwork Staff
Summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring you another great promotion. We’re talking about the exclusive $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion on PKR!
The $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway will feature five PokerNews-exclusive freerolls from Aug. 1 and Sept. 25, each boasting a prize pool of $1,000. In order to play, just earn 1,000 PKR Points. From there, every 500 PKR Points you earn will get you an entry to another freeroll, up to a maximum of five $1,000 freerolls! 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 in $5,000 worth of freerolls for just $25 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 the two $1,000 freeroll entries are only available to new players who 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 first $1,000 freeroll in the $5K PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion takes place at 19:00 GMT on Aug. 28, with each subsequent freeroll taking place at the same time on subsequent Tuesdays.

As you can see from the schedule, the qualification period for all five freerolls began at the beginning of August. If you’ve been playing on PKR since then, you’ve probably earn points already. If not, you have plenty of time to accumulate 500 PKR Points for at least one freeroll entry, which will see players sit down with a generous starting stack containing 3,000 chips and increased blinds every 10 minutes.
Get involved in the $5K PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion and see the summer in with style.
