Free money: Two ways to pad your PokerStars bankroll in August

It's August. EPT Barcelona in on the way. The World Championship of Online Poker isn't that far out either. You've got a few weeks to start putting away a few extra dollars for when you might need it. PokerStars just made it a little bit easier.

This month, PokerStars has a couple of promotions running that could help you pocket a little extra cash. Need some? Keep reading.

If you need free money, you need a PokerStars account. Click here to get one.

Jacks or Better

For the rest of the month, you could win up to $10,000 instantly when you complete a daily challenge on PokerStars. If you win, the money is yours to cash out immediately.

To start playing, you will need to play cash game hands at stakes of $0.05/$0.10 or higher. When you win holding a pair of jacks or better, you will start racking up points. Once you hit 100 points, you'll get a cash prize. What's more, to get you started, PokerStars will give you 20 points when you play your first eligible hand.


To see all the relevant details and learn how to get started, check out the PokerStars Jacks or Better information page.

$30 Freeplay

So, you don't have a PokerStars account yet? Well, you're in luck, because brand new players have a chance to get $30 in free play and an entry into a $1 million freeroll.

When you make your first deposit of $20 or more using the bonus code THIRTY, you will get an extra $30 in freeplay and a ticket to that big freeroll.

You can get started by downloading and depositing right here.

Have fun!
