Free Poker Money

By: Jared Sid Maher


There are many free poker money offers on the internet, and people often wonder if they are really ‘free’. Internet surfers have gotten familiar with ‘free’ offers that turn out to be anything but free. So, what’s the deal with free poker money offers?

The truth is, some are real and some are not. Some free poker money offers mean that if you make a deposit of, let’s say, $100 then they will give you a bonus at a certain percentage of that amount. A 100% deposit bonus would mean a bonus cash amount of $100 in this case.

So, is that $100 in free money? You can’t just take the bonus money and cash it out – that would be really free! There will be wagering requirements associated with this bonus. You will be required to play a certain number of poker hands in the poker room before you are given the bonus money. Still, it is really something for nothing. Even more so if you were going to play in that poker room anyway.

There is another type of free money offer that is actually free. This is the no deposit poker bonus offer. They can be rare, but they are out there. They can be divided into two distinct types; The first type is where the poker room itself gives you the money, and the second type is where a third party arranges the money for you.

The first type, where the poker room gives out the money, is the more straight forward of the two. The new player signs up for a new account at the poker room and then gets the free money deposited straight into their account. These offers are usually for small amounts, around $10, though they can be smaller. The second type of offer where there is a third party involved is more usually called a free poker bankroll.

Free bankroll offers are a little more complicated but they can be for a lot more money, around $50 is normal. The complicated part is that you normally would have to sign up for two accounts; the first one with the free bankroll provider, and the second account, the actual poker account, through the bankroll providers site. It’s a little extra work, but then you do get the money for free. And yes, it is actually free, though there will of course be wagering requirements attached to it.

These bankroll providers can offer this service because they know that when you play the wagering requirements associated with the free money you will generate rake, and they will get a percentage of that rake. Overall, everyone should be happy – the bankroll provider gets their commission, the poker room gets the customer, and the player gets the free money.

As usual, there will be some checks to be carried out, and some hoops for the player to jump through. When you are giving away free money you have to be careful about fraud. Of course, the player should be careful too about these types of offers, and make some checks to verify that they are legitimate. All in all though, these offers can be good for everyone.
