Online Poker Free Money: The Definition of Freeroll It’s nice to play online poker using virtual play chips and we have to admit, it is fun! However, once you find that your are getting better at playing poker and you are actually winning, it seems kind of boring that you are playing just for fun, rather than playing for cold cash. Playing poker using real money is exciting, if not addictive. The best way to play poker, though, is playing it with real money, but not having to risk your own cash. Today, you can do so with online poker free money deals. Online poker free money deals have become a huge trend that started with the Internet poker boom that began in 2003. An online poker free money deal is also know as freeroll. The word freeroll is a way to describe a poker tournament that does not collect an entry fee. Remember though, the term ‘no entry fee’ and 'free' can have different meanings as some freeroll tournaments ask for fees at certain parts of the game. Online poker free money freeroll is somehow different from land-based casino freeroll. In a land-based poker tournament, the pot money is not collected from the player’s entrance fee, but is rather taken from casino donations, commercials and advertising deals, audience tickets, broadcast talent fees or a combination of these factors. In land-based casinos, some rooms will give players, who are frequent guests, a freeroll. Mostly, by invitation only tournaments are also freeroll tourneys. On the other hand, online poker free money freerolls usually still ask a fee. Some poker freerolls in online terms really mean you can practice your game with play money and you win with just play money. Some online freeroll tournaments can be similar to land-based casino poker freerolls in the sense that it will not ask for entrance fees. However, Internet freeroll tournaments may ask some form of payment for points to play. The typical type of points that Internet poker sites will ask for are those earned through paying and playing using real cash. So, an online poker money freeroll can only be claimed if you have been playing and spending for sometime on that particular site. Other forms of online freerolls can include a feeder tournament which allocates to winning poker players free entrance to other tournaments. This is the closest online deal to match a land-based casino freeroll. The best way to discover online poker free money freerolls is to check the Internet gaming site’s lobby or welcome page. There are buttons on that page that will show you details of the site, including the number of players, turn of hands and freeroll conditions. If you are a good competitive player, stick to a game and accumulate points which can be claimed over time as a freeroll at an online casino site.
