Hit Top Speed In The $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway
Welcome the summer in with style with the exclusive $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway promotion on PKR.
Running between Aug. 1 and Sept. 25 the $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway features five PokerNews-exclusive freerolls, each boasting a prize pool of $1,000. Along with the prize money on offer, one aspect of this promotion that really stands out are the entry requirements, which are extremely low. Also, with this promotion being a PokerNews-exclusive the field sizes should be much smaller than in a typical freeroll tournament.
In order to gain entry to the next available $5,000 PokerNews Summer Speedway freeroll you must earn 500 PKR Points and for every 500 PKR Points you earn thereafter you will gain entry to another freeroll, up to a maximum of five $1,000 freerolls. PKR Points are easy to earn as they are awarded 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.
If you do not have a PKR account then now is the perfect time to change that fact 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.
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 on subsequent Tuesdays. The table below shows the full schedule.
|Date||Time (GMT)||Tournament Name||Qualification Period (GMT)||Prize Pool|
|Aug. 28||19:00||$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway #1||Aug. 1, 00:00-Aug. 26, 23:59||$1,000|
|Sept. 4||19:00||$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway #2||Aug. 1, 00:00-Sept. 2, 23:59||$1,000|
|Sept. 11||19:00||$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway #3||Aug. 1, 00:00-Sept. 9, 23:59||$1,000|
|Sept. 18||19:00||$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway #4||Aug. 1, 00:00-Sept. 16, 23:59||$1,000|
|Sept. 25||19:00||$5k PokerNews Summer Speedway #5||Aug. 1, 00:00-Sept. 23, 23:59||$1,000|
As you can see from the schedule, the qualification period for all five freerolls began 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 PokerNews 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.
