Play Casino to win your seat

We’re giving away $1,000,000 in the next $1 Million Poker Freeroll - one of the biggest free-to-play poker tournaments ever hosted - and all real money players are invited to take part.

The latest $1 Million Poker Freeroll takes place on Sunday, October 9, and will award a staggering $1,000,000 in free prizes - including $10,000 for the winner.

Want to join the action? For a chance to enter the $1 Million Freeroll you need to win your seat through a daily All-in Shootout Qualifier. To secure your entry in a daily qualifier, complete a simple Challenge by playing PokerStars Casino games. You have nine chances to enter an All-in Shootout - one each day from September 28-October 6 - plus a chance to qualify through our Last Chance Skill Qualifier tournament on Saturday, October 8 by completing a simple Challenge on October 7.

How to play the $1 Million Poker Freeroll

  1. Opt in to your simple daily Challenge, available from September 28-October 6, through your Challenges Window, and then complete it to be automatically registered into the next daily All-in Shootout Qualifier at 07:04 ET. You don’t even need to be present to be in with a chance of winning - all players will be all-in every hand until there’s a winner.

    Players that complete a special daily Challenge on October 7 will receive a ticket to the Last Chance Skill Qualifier played on Saturday, October 8 at 12:04 ET. Unlike an All-in Shootout you must register and play this tournament to be in with a chance of advancing to the $1 Million Freeroll.
  2. Each daily All-in Shootout qualifier will award 8,192 seats to the $1 Million Poker Freeroll. Check the tournament lobby of your respective All-in Shootout tournament to see if you qualified.

    Players who qualify will automatically be registered to play the $1 Million Freeroll on October 9 at 12:04 ET. Note that even if you do not have to be present during the All-in Shootout Qualifiers, the $1 Million Poker Freeroll is played as a regular tournament.
  3. If you win a seat in the $1 Million Poker Freeroll final, you will not need to complete further Challenges and you will be unregistered from further All-in Shootout tournaments and the Last Chance Skill Qualifier.
