    100 Billion Hands Celebration: $1M Ultimate Freeroll The 100 Billion Hands Celebration will draw to a close with the Ultimate Freeroll - a $1,000,000 tourney, with a first prize of $50,000! It's one of the biggest free-to-play tournaments in poker history, and you can take part on June 30 at 13:00 ET. It's a ticket-only event, but there are plenty of ways to make sure you join us for this landmark poker tournament. How to Play the Ultimate Freeroll Claim your Ultimate Freeroll ticket by competing in a Trivia Freeroll or by making a real money deposit: Trivia Freerolls Think you know your PokerStars trivia? Put your knowledge to the test in 100 special Trivia Freerolls, where the top-50 finishers will be rewarded with an Ultimate Freeroll ticket. The password-protected Trivia Freerolls will require players to answer a trivia question on the history of PokerStars to enter. You can find all 100 Trivia Freerolls in the PokerStars lobby, listed under 'Tourney' > 'Freeroll'. They take place daily from June 5-29 at 09:00, 12:00, 15:00 and 18:00 ET. Deposit Bonus There are two ways to claim a free Ultimate Freeroll ticket when you deposit: - Deposit $50 or more using bonus code 'ULTIMATE' for an Ultimate Freeroll entry ticket (one per player) - Deposit from $10 to $49.99 using bonus code 'SNG' and get free entry to a 6-Max Sit & Go Ultimate Freeroll satellite. The satellite winner will progress to the Ultimate Freeroll tournament. You can deposit once per week (Monday to Sunday) to maximise your chances of qualifying. You have until 13:00 ET on June 30 to make deposits for the Ultimate Freeroll promotion. See here for a list of real money deposit options for players in your region. Please Note: Ultimate Freeroll tickets are not transferrable, so if you already have a ticket, please do not participate in further qualifying events. The Ultimate Freeroll will have a capacity of 150,000 players. In the event that the tournament fills up, the deposit offer and Trivia Freerolls may be removed. Contact <span style="color:RoyalBlue">suppor...ars.com</span> if you have any questions about the Ultimate Freeroll or any other 100 Billion Hands Celebration promotion - where a total of $5,000,000 will be awarded across all events. Best of Luck! Team PokerSchoolOnline

        Hello Smithwesso45,

        Welcome to PokerSchoolOnline. Here's a short video about PSO and what it has to offer you. Also check out >>This Page<< for more info.



        We're here to help you so please feel free to ask any questions you may have and thank you for being a member of PokerSchoolOnline.

        I do know what year I was born in, but I do not think that is one of the trivia questions.

        Good luck
        Doug

              I deposited £40 just to play in this tournament but it's shaping up to be MASSIVE value.

              At present there is 46,000 players but the top 39,499 get a prize. I expect the final tally will be 50-60,000 players but that's still a good chance of a prize and maybe with a little luck a deep run.

              Only a 1500 starting stack so maybe suits the maniacs more than me but I still think this is decent value. It translates into a $15 - $20 regular buy in.

              I mentioned before, I play the deposit game on Stars so I'll be withdrawing my £40 (plus a little profit) to keep for the next bonus. I read somewhere that Stars make $1M per day so I don't think my strategy will hurt their bottom line by much

                im playing this event aswell im hoping for an early good start.

                would late registration be a smart choice?

                  Maybe a thought but then again you're missing hands that could be earning you chips. I don't just want to min cash in this, I want to win it. It will be fish filled and you could be giving up spots to win chips because you're not in.

                  I will play from the start but you've gave me food for thought. There could be 10,000 out before the first hour is up and you're buying in for a min cash.

                    If I were you I would wait for aces and kings and time bank fold anything else, good luck

                      I'm not playing this event, but it's offering incredible value to those of you that made it. With less than half an hour to go before it begins, about 47,000 people are registered, and 39,500 will cash. (Mincash is $5.50). With around 80% of the field getting paid, you'd have to play abysmally - or get incredibly unlucky - to not pick up some free money here.
                      Good luck to everyone that's entered!

                        I'll play my normal game, I want to win this not limp to a min cash.

                          Holy crap only 15 min to prepare this is going to be horrible LOL i just played a 5hour game to FT and win a $25 freeroll on Fulltilt ( i have to mention my thread in community meet up) bc this game had 10 min levels such confindence i hope i can replenish focus for this insane tournament on Pokerstars. My plan: not late registring here was it just a thought start the game like i would in the open league till we at least reach the money then play my own game, i also intend to win this thing but there will be dissapointment with not even mincashing in this 1. GL to all the others umbup:

                            4 sit outs at my table and 2 loose aggressives, maybe missing out on some value by late regging?

                            Edit 3 loose aggressives if you count me

                              Haven't played a hand yet - this may be my best chance to cash in a tourney in a while - im reluctant to mess it up! Actually, my whole table's playing pretty tight Maybe after the bubble bursts, things'll change though since it's a turbo, and the pay structure's kind of flat? Only 3,500 left until ITM umbup:
