Three main types of players are as follows:

  • Players proficient enough with the intention to hit the prize money

There are three major types of freeroll poker tournaments: ‘Open freerolls’, ‘new player freerolls’ and ‘player points freerolls’.

To be eligible to play an ‘open freeroll’, you need to create account on a specific site. Only those having a screen-name can play an open freeroll.

‘New Player freerolls’ are perfect for first timers. The sites require you to pay a minimum deposit in order to get started with new player freerolls.

In ‘player points freerolls’, the casino awards the players with specific points as they advance in the game. However, the ones having a real money account can achieve points.
