Shift Into High Gear With The $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway

Posted at 12:05 2012-08-01 by PokerNetwork Staff

Summer time is finally here and we have a superb way for you to celebrate its arrival; $5,000 worth of freerolls in the $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion on PKR.

The $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion will run between Aug. 1 and Sept. 25 and feature five PokerNews-exclusive freerolls, each boasting a prize pool of $1,000. Not only is there $1,000 up for grabs in each freeroll, the entry requirements are extremely low and due to being a PokerNews-exclusive promotion the field sizes should be rather small too. This all increases your chances of getting your hands on some free cash.

For every 1,000 PKR Points you earn you will gain entry to the next available $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway freeroll, up to a maximum of five $1,000 freerolls. PKR Points are earned 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 $50 in rake. This could be the bargain of the summer!

If you are a new PokerNews player then you are in luck because by downloading PKR through PokerNews and making your first deposit will not only entitle you to a choice of three sign-up bonuses but you will also gain access to two $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway freerolls too. We do not think there has ever been a better time to sign up for a PKR account.

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 prior to one of the $1,000 freerolls taking 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 each Tuesday thereafter. The table below shows the full schedule.

Sept. 2519:00$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway #5Aug. 1, 00:00-Sept. 23, 23:59$1,000

As you can see from the schedule, the qualification period for all five freerolls begins at midnight on Aug. 1 which means even those of you who play the micro-stakes will have plenty of time in which to accumulate 1,000 PKR Points for at least one freeroll entry.

Each of the freerolls will see players sit down with a generous starting stack containing 3,000 chips and play to blinds that increase every 10-minutes, starting at just 10/20, so there will be plenty of room to play some real poker in them.

New players who download PKR through PokerNetwork will be able to choose from one 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 then 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.

Get involved in the $5k PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion and see the summer in with style.
