Your chance to take part in the next $1 Million PokerStars freeroll

There's another chunk of free money coming on PokerStars, and we want you to have your chance to win a share of it. What's more it won't cost you a penny

We're talking about the next $1 Million Freeroll, one of the biggest free-to-play poker tournaments ever hosted. And if you have a real money account on PokerStars - whether you're a high roller or a penny player - there's a seat waiting for you.


It all takes place on Sunday October 9, 2016. There's a $1 million prize pool and $10,000 guaranteed to the winner.

To play you'll need to win your seat through a daily All-in Shootout Qualifier. Now, as far as qualifier go this one ranks as one of the easier ones. All you need to do is complete a simple challenge. What's more you'll have nine chances to do that, one each day between today and Thursday October 6. Even if that doesn't work we're hosting a Last Chance Skill Qualifier tournament on Saturday, October 8, and entry to that is via a simple Challenge on October 7.

So here's what do to secure your seat.

Want to take part in the $1 Million Poker Freeroll but don't have a PokerStars account? Click here to get started.

Simply opt in to your daily Challenge, available each day from today, through your Challenges Window (found in the PokerStars client). Complete the challenge and you'll be automatically registered into the next All-in Shootout qualifier (they take place daily at 07:04 ET). You don't even need to be present to be in with a chance of winning - all players will be all-in every hand until there's a winner.

Players that complete a special daily Challenge on October 7 will receive a ticket to the Last Chance Skill Qualifier played on Saturday, October 8 at 12:04 ET. Unlike an All-in Shootout you must register and play this tournament to be in with a chance of advancing to the $1 Million Freeroll.

If you're thinking that spaces might be limited then think again.

Each daily All-in Shootout qualifier will award 8,192 seats to the $1 Million Freeroll, and you can check to see whether you qualified in the tournament lobby of your respective All-in Shootout tournament.

Players who qualify will automatically be registered to play the $1 Million Freeroll on October 9. However, take note that while you don't have to be present during the All-in Shootout Qualifiers, the $1 Million Freeroll itself is played like any other regular tournament.

That's all there is to it.
