Freeroll 1 of 3 kicks off on Sat., December 4, at 3 p.m. ET. The trio of tourneys will be hosted by PokerStars and are only open to qualified players.
If you signed up for PokerStars and entered ‘MPONLINE’ as your bonus code, you are one step away from your seat. Earn 100 Frequent Player Points (FPP) in the previous month and you will be emailed and freeroll ticket a few days prior to the cards getting in the air. The same eligibility requirements will be applied to the second and third $500 freerolls, which are scheduled for January 15, 2011 and February 12, 2011 on PokerStars.
Earning FPPs is fairly simple. Play any PokerStars game with a rake or fee and you’ll earn VIP Player Points (VPP). For every VPP you are awarded, you will also earn FPPs, based on your VIP level.
PokerStars tournaments get you 5.5 VPPs for each $1.00 in fee paid. You’ll earn 5.5 VPPs for each $1.00 in rake collected in short-handed cash games. Tables eight-handed or better award 6 VPPs for each $1.00 in rake.
In the PokerStars rewards program you begin as a Bronze member, earning 1 FPP per VPP, but if you compile 750 VPP in a month you’ll earn SilverStar status and accumulate points at a rate of 1.5 to 1. Goldstar members, at 3,000 VPP a month, will double their earnings and take home 2 to 1, while Platimum players who reach 7,500 VPP will multiply at a rate of 2.5 to 1, meaning a little over one VPP per day would qualify you for our cash giveaways.
For those who already signed up for PokerStars through using the bonus code ‘MPONLINE’, get those monthly FPPs locked up and be checking your email for the invite. If you’re without a PokerStars account, download it now at our review page and don’t forget the bonus code ‘MPONLINE’. You have until December to qualify for our first freeroll and take advantage of their 100% bonus up to $600.
