Everything you need to know about Freerolls

If you’ve played online poker in India, then you know that Freeroll tournaments are very popular. However, you may not yet be familiar with freeroll tournaments, which are a great way to earn real money by playing poker – so today we’re talking all about Freerolls!

What are Freerolls?

Freerolls, as the name suggests, are poker tournaments that are completely free to enter – you don’t need any kind of buy-in or deposit to start playing. You can find freeroll tournaments in both face to face as well as online poker.


The prize on offer at a freeroll tournament can be a variety of things. It can be real money, as in the case of the Khelo365 daily freerolls, it can be points of some kind, or the prize can be entry into another tournament, to which there is no other way to enter. Our   tournament, which can only be entered by gaining tickets obtained through other games and bonuses, is a good example of the latter.

Freeroll tournaments are sometimes offered to players who frequent a particular website or casino, as a hallmark of the favour in which they are viewed by the establishment. invitation-only tournaments also often tend to be freerolls.

Origin of the phrase

In the early years of the casino industry, guests at Las Vegas hotels were often incentivized to play in some way or the other. Most frequently, they would be given a roll of nickel coins – a ‘free roll’ – when they checked in, so that they could make use of the slot machines at the hotel. Over time, the practice became so common that guests would often ask for their ‘free rolls’ – which eventually came to refer to anything for which the entry was free, and has now become part of the poker vocabulary.
