Every day, twice per day, there are freerolls that award tickets to the next day's events. These freerolls are only open to players who competed in the previous day's events, as you can see below:
- The Classic Hold'em Freeroll: open to those who played in the previous day's No Limit Hold'em event and awards tickets to the next No Limit Hold'em event.
- The Classic Freeroll: open to those who played in the previous day's non-No Limit Hold'em event and awards tickets to the next non-No Limit Hold'em event.
As with previous Full Tilt series, there is a special promotion aimed at satellite players. Simply qualify for any of the events (up to event #14) and then be the last satellite qualifier standing to win a ticket to the $200,000 guaranteed Main Event.
