What is a Freeroll?
A freeroll is a free tournament that players can participate in, where the poker site or affiliate will add free money or other goods that players can win. It doesn't cost anything for players to participate in freeroll tournaments, making it an ideal way for new players to learn to play tournament poker and still have a chance to win some free money or goods.
Freerolls is made as a tool to both reward loyal players of a poker site and to attract new players to the site. Almost all poker sites in the world offers freerolls to their players, some are open for everyone and some are for special players only, who has reached specific requirements and so on. Freeroll tournaments varies just as much is format, variant, prizes and so on as all other tournaments do, so to find the best freerolls for you, you will need to browse around the different sites and see where it is best for you.

How Can I Participate?
There are many different ways to participate in different freerolls, so there is not a complete definitive answer to that question. However we can list some of the things that you should look for when you want to participate in a freeroll:
- Is it password protected?
- Is it only available to special players?
- Is it only for new players?
- Is it for players under a special affiliate?
- Rake requirements?
If the freeroll is none of the above, then you can participate for free by registering to it and hopefully win some free money for your bankroll.
Can I Withdraw My Winnings?
Freeroll winnings will commonly be available for you to withdraw as you want, however there are some cases where the winnings have rake requirements before being eligible for withdrawal. Always check with the site that you want to play freerolls on if you can withdraw any winnings freely or if you will have to play with the money before you can take them out.
If you don't wish to play with the money you win, then you need to stay in sites where you can withdraw winnings freely, but if you want to play with them anyway, then it doesn't matter for you if you have to rake the money free for withdrawals.
