  • 1. BEST AFFILIATES TO SIGN UP FROM FOREXCLUSIVE POKER FREEROLLSBESTaffiliates are special in that they sometimes offer exclusive tournaments for their linked FORThere are plenty of good pokerPoker rooms AFFILIATES TO SIGN UP FROM members.EXCLUSIVE POKER FREEROLLSreview sites out there describing the pros and cons of each room. Perhaps they even have a ranking or star system worked out for you.However, what all these sites have in common is that they use their own referral links and want you to sign up through them to as many pokerrooms as possible to get your commission. Now some sites might have exclusive deals lined up with specific poker rooms because of theirgood relationship, but with all the offers out there, how do you know which one to choose? The problem is this: when another competitor offersa better deal, do you think a poker review site would inform their visitors about it? Of course not!Fortunately, here at Bucky Bang 365, Im going to tell you which affiliate you should register through to get access to the best private freerolls!Thats right, instead of hiding the best deals on the web and forcing you to sign up through my own referral links, Ill be the bigger man and leadyou to the best ones. Thats why I have compiled this list. While I do have my own referral links to the majority of these poker rooms, I cannot ingood faith recommend them when they are not the best deal around. After all, if you can only sign up to each particular poker room once inyour life, you better make sure you get the most bang for your buck! And remember, this is all on top of all the regular poker room welcomebonuses!Note that since you can only be linked to 1 affiliate + only take 1 welcome bonus, you really need to make this count. I wish I had access to thistype of information when I started out. Instead, I either foolishly signed up directly with the poker room and got no benefits, just their regularwelcome bonus, or I signed up through some small affiliate who makes minimal or no effort to give back to the people they make theircommission off of. So start following these tips and youll already have a great head start on building your bankroll! (TIP: Even if your country isexcluded from Poker/Sportsbook sign up bonuses, you can often still register through these affiliates and get access to their private freerolls)Poker Rooms:888poker - Best software; very very smooth. This is my personal favorite and I especially enjoy the fast paced turbo tournaments and SnGs.Theyve got something cool going on pretty much every month. Currently in February 2013 they have this 24 hour freeroll promotion wherethere is a freeroll every hour with prizes ranging from $50/100/500/1000/2000/4000. Average # of players for these range from 800-3500depending on time of day and size of prize pot; so even in the worst case still very good value for a freeroll. To get access to 24 hours offreerolls all you need is to play 8 Sit & Gos in 1 day. The cheapest of which is only $0.02, so at a cost of just $0.16 youll have access to 24freerolls! Additionally there is no late registration and they are turbo tournaments so theyre very easy to cash in with minimal time and effort. AllI do is quickly try to get around 3x my starting stack and then just sit out and within about an hour Im in the bubble. I also recommend signingup to the "nation freerolls" theyve got going on atm. For Dutch residents this is the Kroegentocht freeroll held every Saturday evening witharound 200-300 players and $100 in prizes for the top 20. It only takes around an hour to be in the prizes so thats always good. Other goodones are the 2 depositors freeroll held every week for people who have deposited, though Im surprised that there is a relatively large numberof people in these. Last time I played it was $1000 for 4500 people. I prefer the casino mix-em-up freeroll where the requirement are verydoable, I just play one minimum spin on the slots every Thursday and I get access to a $1000 freeroll with only around 1000 runners. Newplayers should also register at my.888poker.com as that will give you access to 2 "meet the new members" freerolls. Twitter followers shouldkeep an eye out for their "tweet for your seat" freerolls. Another huge advantage is the common wallet between casino/sportsbook/poker. Thepoker room often sends out deposit bonuses in their promotional emails. You can then deposit and play through your money by sports bettingor in the casino if youd like. (They dont really approve if you just deposit and never risk that money).Youll want to sign up through: I suggest e-mailing 888poker and 888sports and asking if you can still qualify for the sportsbook welcome bonusif you sign up via 888poker. If not, its best to sign up through 888sports and get the 88 euros in free bets offer they have going on at themoment on their official site. If its possible, then you should sign up through an affiliate to 888poker first. There are a few affiliates you canchoose from. I dont recommend Pokertube.com, because their freerolls are quite irregular, sometimes theyll have a period of great freerolls,but after that period is over youll have to wait months or years before the next promotion for that poker room is held. Cardschat holds $100freerolls but those require 65 quality posts in their forum before you can get the password. The best one is pokerlistings.com, where you willneed to rake $1 in one week to gain access to their $500 weekly freerolls (doable), and rake $50 in one month to gain access to their monthlyfreerolls (this one is a bit too hard I think). Theyve also got some qualifier freeroll tournaments at the moment for which you need to make a
  • 2. deposit and youll get a ticket for them. So in summary the main downside is the points requirement and the fact that there are only around 4exclusive events each month.Titan Poker - Another room where I spend a lot of time on. They run on the ipoker network but have a lot more promotions going on than theother ipoker rooms Ive tried. These guys also use a common wallet for sportsbook/casino/poker so that lets you take advantage of thedepositors freerolls quite easily as youll need to be depositing money anyway to participate in all their sportsbook promotions. The depositorfreerolls are held every Monday evening if you made a deposit in the prior week. The prize pot is $1250 and there are about 950 players andaround 135 get paid. However these move quite slowly and therefore can take a long time to land in the money. New players also get awelcome package, some exclusive freeroll tickets and access to $25 freerolls for the first 90 days though these have too many people so Inever bothered. One tournament youll definitely want to put in your agenda is the Monthly Bonanza. 10k in prizes and only 2500 players.There is a qualification process involved and the easiest way is to A) have made your first deposit, or B) qualify via the weekly qualificationtournament (open to the ones who have made a deposit that week) where 50 of around 250 players get tickets.Titan also has a addictive bonus system called Titan treasures. These are a set of goals for which you get "coins", which in turn you can tradein for a prize spin that can award you ticket, cash, or even apparel prizes. Examples of goals are: bet 50 euros in 1 week in the sportsbook,play in 3 tournaments in one week, finish last in a sit and go, etc. Also be sure to add Titan Poker on Facebook where they frequently givepeople who comment special tournament entry tokens. The downside to Titan and all ipoker rooms is that so many tournaments have lateregistration, add-ons, re-buys, and long lasting levels, which can slow some of the games down.Youll want to sign up through: This one is easy. Without a doubt youll want to sign up through pokerstrategy. Just make an account there andthen go to the "poker rooms" tab. Scroll down and click on Titan Poker; youll see a description of their exclusive promotions. Click on "to thebonus instructions" to find out how to have your account linked to pokerstrategy. Linked accounts get access to DAILY $100 freerolls! Thereare about 600-750 players every night and around 100 of them get paid. They used to also have weekly exclusive depositor freerolls just forpokerstrategy members but unfortunately this has been discontinued at the moment. Titan has lots of affiliates, pokernews.com for example,has periods where they hold regular freerolls for a few months, but these either require way too many points or are of similar or less value thanthose from pokerstrategy. Pokerlistings offer monthly freerolls for which you can qualify by raking $1 but once a month is just too long of awaiting period for me. Remember to also take advantage of the sportsbook welcome bonus afterwards as youll also be eligible for that!Coral Poker - Another ipoker skin (remember you cant have more than one running at the same time on the same computer). They have anice welcome bonus at the moment with some exclusive new player tokens. They also send me very valuable freeroll tokens in their emailpromotions. If youre from the UK some of the poker magazines will occasionally have freeroll passwords in their magazines.Youll want to sign up through: They rarely have exclusive freerolls. You can try doing some research at en.donkr.com/deals/freerolls as I saw amention of an exclusive $5 buy-in + $500 added tournament but thats pretty much it. Im also not aware of any Coral sportsbook sign-upaffiliates which give cash back and I dont have a refer-a-friend code. You can try affiliating via a cashback site like Quidco but thats only if yourfrom the UK and even then they dont always pay.Comeon Poker - Same network as Intertops but even less promotions and freerolls.Youll want to sign up through: No private freerolls that I know of, youll probably want to sign up via the sportsbook as the official Comeonpoker bonus from their site will still be available to you (not that its very good anyway). It seems the bonuses are quite country dependent so Icant comment too much on them, its possible you can find some exclusive deals on local sites that you cant find elsewhere (though Ive seeninstances where those exclusive deals are actually worse than the ones you can get from the official site).Gala Poker - Same parent company as Coral, same ipoker network. Not a lot of promotions, not a lot of bonuses.Youll want to sign up through: Pokertube.com had a short freeroll series that lasted about 3-4 weeks for new sign-ups. At the moment there isnothing though, and doesnt look like there will be any promotions for Gala Poker in the near future. There were no other exclusive freerolls.*Update: Looks like Yourpokercash might start holding monthly exclusive freerolls starting from March 23, 2013.Bwin Poker - Common wallet, Ongame network, not many promotions. They do have a lot of their own freerolls, but they are always packedwith thousands of people even for the $50 ones, 8000 people going after $250, just crazy... At the moment they dont even have much of awelcome bonus, just some exclusive freerolls with mediocre rewards for new players.Youll want to sign up through: There wasnt even a private freeroll section in the software, though its possible that some eastern Europeancountry specific sites/forums have set up one or two private freerolls, I couldnt really tell because it wasnt in English. I suggest just signing upthrough their sportsbook, but remember, once you sign up for the sportsbook youre automatically signed up for the poker room. I did not knowthis when I registered and only bet on sports. By the time I wanted to play in the poker room I couldnt enter any of the new player exclusivetournaments because they were only open to people who signed up in the last 60 days (I didnt see this mentioned anywhere). I think Bwin hassome exclusive sportsbook sign up bonus deals with a few forums/blogs/sites in each country. In my experience quite a lot of them are betterthan the official offer from their site though these offers come and go and are always changing. Personally Ive seen offers available from 25 to50 to 100 euros. My refer a friend link only pays 15 so Im not even going to bother posting it as pretty much any offer you can find is going tobe better than that.Betfair Poker - Theyve recently switched to the ipoker network. Ive only played with them when they were still on their old Ongame network,but didnt spend too much time there back then either.Youll want to sign up through: So far Ive seen quite a few affiliates offer a 1x exclusive freeroll but then nothing else. Theyve only recentlymoved to the new network so it might take some time to establish deals so probably best to wait this one out. Also if you check the sportsbookreview section on my site you can see that you can get cashback+welcome bonus if you join through their sportsbook. Thats probably a betteroption.Nordicbet Poker - Microgaming network, theyve got freerolls every month; including daily ones for Razz, Hold-em, Omaha, and Omaha Hi-Lo,
  • 3. albeit with only 50-200 euro prizes and quite a lot of competition. Theyve also got weekly new player freerolls available for new sign ups. Thisis the case for every Microgaming skin. Youll have access for 6 weeks from your sign up date, so remember if youre going to be signing up tomultiple Microgaming sites youll want to spread them out so you get maximum access. Also note that you can only have one Microgaming siterunning at one time. I recommend for new players to buy-in to the new player 1 euro buy in tournaments with 500 euro added as thatstremendous value and Ive managed to cash in those tournaments myself. These are also available for the first 6 weeks just like the new playerfreerolls. Lately they have been organizing a Sunday freeroll that is only open to Nordicbet customers and not all the Microgaming networkusers. These are quite valuable but to qualify they require you to rake 50 hands during the week (I have on occasion seen them lower it to a 1raked hand requirement, and still have very little people bother to qualify, so thats something to watch out for)Youll want to sign up through: Theyve got some private tournaments but not many are freerolls. Also pretty much all of them are forScandinavian players. Usually in this situation Id suggest you to sign up through their sportsbook but in this case their sportsbook bonus, whilehuge (Ive seen 100 euros, and even 200 euros in very special anniversary type occasions) are only for Scandinavian residents. Mysuggestion? If youre not from one of those countries you should just skip this company. If you are? Dive right in.Stan James Poker - Microgaming network, theyve got freerolls every month; including daily ones for Razz, Hold-em, Omaha, and Omaha Hi-Lo, albeit with only 50 euro prizes and quite a lot of competition. Theyve also got weekly new player freerolls available for new sign ups. Thisis the case for every Microgaming skin. Youll have access for 6 weeks from your sign up date, so remember if youre going to be signing up tomultiple Microgaming sites youll want to spread them out so you get maximum access. Also note that you can only have one Microgaming siterunning at one time. I recommend for new players to buy-in to the new player 1 euro buy in tournaments with 500 euro added as thatstremendous value and Ive managed to cash in those tournaments myself. These are also available for the first 6 weeks just like the new playerfreerolls. If you make your first deposit youll be given a matched bonus, just like at every other poker room, I find that these always take waytoo much playthrough to unlock. Youll also get $5 worth of tokens which is more useful. During special events like the world cup or holidays likeChristmas/New year they tend to hold some special freerolls. Sometimes these will require a minimum deposit for entry, for some reason lots ofpeople are too lazy to do this, making it quite an attractive tournament.Youll want to sign up through: At the time of this writing, their sportsbook has a very lame 10 euro bonus (beware that if you depositvia Moneybookers you cant even bet in their sportsbook section only the other sections, and as a result you dont qualify for their sportsbookwelcome bonus either) Therefore, if possible, dont deposit with Moneybookers here. I also suggest mailing them to check whether you canqualify for both a poker welcome bonus and a sportsbook welcome bonus, my guess is that it should be no problem (*update: no problem youcan get both). If this is indeed the case you can either look for a SPORTSBOOK affiliate with an better exclusive sign up bonus and sign upthrough the sportsbook (I couldnt find any better ones at the moment) or you can wait for Stan James to increase their sportsbook sign upbonus (as 10 euros is really the lowest end of the spectrum while Stan James is quite a big company). If you go for the second option and thusremain unaffiliated, you can download the software and sign up through the initial screen and use the refer a friend bonus. When registeringjust enter chadmanman22 under "your friends poker alias". Youll get an additional $10 on top of all the bonuses, once you deposit and rake250 hands (When I emailed them they told me a qualifying rake hand is defined as a player that has received cards and the total rake for thehand played was greater than or equal to $0.25, and this must be completed in 30 days. In my email I specifically asked them whether there isany downside to using the refer-a-friend code vs. straight signing up there and they said that theres no penalty if you dont make it. So no harmno foul in trying). I would suggest you emailing them again for the terms before you sign up to double check though as these werent mentionedon the site and could be changed in the future. I think this code is only suitable for people who want to play real money poker games anywayand this gives them a nice opportunity for an extra $10, but if youre a very small player and unlikely to make the requirements then itsprobably not worth the hassle.Unibet Poker - Microgaming network, theyve got freerolls every month; including daily ones for Razz, Hold-em, Omaha, and Omaha Hi-Lo,albeit with only 50 euro prizes and quite a lot of competition. Theyve also got weekly new player freerolls available for new sign ups. This isthe case for every Microgaming skin. Youll have access for 6 weeks from your sign up date, so remember if youre going to be signing up tomultiple Microgaming sites youll want to spread them out so you get maximum access. Also note that you can only have one Microgaming siterunning at one time. I recommend for new players to buy-in to the new player 1 euro buy in tournaments with 500 euro added as thatstremendous value and Ive managed to cash in those tournaments myself. These are also available for the first 6 weeks just like the new playerfreerolls. If you make your first deposit youll be given a matched bonus, just like at every other poker room, I find that these always take waytoo much playthrough to unlock. There are also some freeroll satellites for the Unibet Open tournament with 1000-1500 people but only the top10 win seats.Youll want to sign up through: If youre from eastern Europe there are a bunch of private freerolls you can look into. Sometimes Dutch orBelgium forums and communities organize freerolls or money added tournaments where you neednt have registered through their affiliatelinks. Other than this the freeroll opportunity at Unibet is quite mediocre. Pokerstrategy sometimes holds depositors freerolls for their affiliatesbut those are very uncommon. I suggest you look for a sportsbook affiliate to sign up through as Unibet is kind of like Bwin in that they oftenwork out deals with some communities/forums so they can offer better sign up bonuses than what Unibet.com itself might offer.William hill Poker - Ipoker network, not a common wallet but you can easily transfer money between sportsbook/casino/poker room. The beautyof William Hill is that you can get the welcome bonus for each section of the site (ie. sports/casino/poker/vegas/skill/bingo/financials). Theyvegot a weekly depositors freeroll for people who made a deposit, prizes are paid out in free bets for the sportsbook. As with most poker roomstheyve got a welcome package for first time depositors and theyve got ongoing promotions every month (though most require way too muchwork/effort and arent worth it) . To be honest Im kind of disappointed in William Hill poker as it seems like they havent invested as much timeand energy into the Poker section as the rest of their great site. Its not that their product is inferior in any way but given their size andreputation I would have liked to seen something more overwhelming.Youll want to sign up through: Pokerstrategy, daily $100 freeroll (not the same one as Poker770 and Titanpoker but also around 700-750participants), not many other regularly held private freerolls other than this one. Pokerstrategy also has a weekly $1000 freeroll for people whohave raked $2 over the week. The field is much smaller for this one due to the rake requirement. Pokerstrategy also has some races and otherpromotions for bigger players at William Hill. There might be some cashback sites out there giving you around 10 euros if you affiliate through
  • 4. them so thats a decision you will need to make on your own. I think if you enjoy poker you should go through this freeroll offer, if you dontenjoy it you might as well give the cashback sites a go, despite there being some reports of non-payment.Poker770 - Ipoker network, at first glance it seemed like they have a lot of promotions, but once I read all the details I didnt think they had allthat much value in them. One thing to keep in mind with the 770 site is that you will need to register separately for the Poker and sportsbook(and possibly casino too) sections of the site. This means you cant transfer money between them which is a big disadvantage in my opinion.Each section has their own blog and Facebook and Twitter channels with occasional promotions, though not all of them are frequently updated.Terms and conditions are not always very clear either. They do have a nice poker coach program that sits next to your poker window givingyou an indication of the win probability of your hands. These guys often get complaints though and arent rated very high, customer service hasgotten its share of criticism as well.Youll want to sign up through: Pokerstrategy, they have daily $100 freerolls (not the same one as Titan/William Hill but also similar level ofparticipants). They also have a weekly $1000 depositors freeroll exclusive for pokerstrategy signups. The requirement is a $20 deposit, thoughas aforementioned there is no common wallet so you will only be able to spend that $20 in their poker room.Intertops Poker - Same network as Comeon, also has the gold card system which can be earned or traded on their gold card exchange. Ithought this sounded pretty interesting especially since their gold cards are supposed to also be usable as buy ins to tournaments, butapparently they havent been holding these tournaments in a long time now so those cards arent very useful. At the moment they have 2 dailyfreerolls but if you live in Europe this is probably when youll be sleeping. They have limited room and fill up within 30 min but even so arentthat easy to cash in. Prizes are tokens for other tournaments.Youll want to sign up through: None that I know of. In fact they rarely have freerolls (other than the aforementioned) listed in their software.Others Im less familiar with:Pokerstars - I dont have an account there but Bankrollmob has multiple small $25 freerolls throughout each day for people who sign upthrough their affiliate link. The thing with Bankrollmob is their pretty in depth ID check, its a process youll have to go through anyway once yousign up with a bookie or poker room, but relatively uncommon at the affiliate site level. Theyre a pretty big and established outfit though andthere are two types of verification: automatic phone call sending you a code/upload ID document. Pokerlistings.com has monthly exclusivefreerolls and every week there is a $500 added tournament with a buy-in of $2.20. Pokernews currently also has a weekly freeroll series goingon at the moment but there is a points requirement. Flopturnriver.com has monthly freerolls and some money added ones too but the pointsrequirement is way too high.Red Star Poker - I found only 1 affiliate, Yourpokercash, that has weekly private freerolls. These have been going on for a while. Otherwise ifyoure from Russia there might be some Russian sites that could have exclusive freerolls.Note: It is VERY IMPORTANT that you read the terms when you sign up and the terms when you participate in any promotion. If you dont like to read terms or cant be bothered, than making useof poker and betting promotions is simply not for you. Due to many people attempting to cheat the system, these companies can and will make it difficult for you if you dont follow the rules set outin the terms!Note 2: Please be aware that sign-up/welcome bonuses for sportsbooks en poker rooms are always changing and are not the same for every country. There will always be the trade-off regardingwhether to wait for a better welcome bonus, or to sign up now and start taking advantage of all the regular freerolls and promotions. Also poker bonuses work differently from sportsbook bonuses.Youll often see welcome bonuses adverting 200% matched bonuses and other huge amounts but these all require lots of playthrough to unlock. Personally I ignore those and just focus on theimmediate playable bonuses and free tokens. The total value of these are usually between 5 and 20 euros, any higher and you should watch out for ridiculous terms and conditions. Affiliatesgenerally will offer exclusive freeroll tournaments on a daily/weekly/monthly/irregular basis and some also have exclusive welcome bonuses. Youll need to look at the total package of freerollaccess + welcome bonus. Some affiliates will offer in addition to/in replacement of freerolls, exclusive tournaments with small buy-ins and money added into the prize pool, some can be of decentvalue. On the other hand there are also exclusive freerolls which require you to have earned a certain amount of poker points from that particular poker room; meaning that youll have to play somereal cash games before you can qualify for the freeroll. If the point requirement is low, this is great as it will greatly decrease the number of people competing with you. Unfortunately for many ofthem the requirements are set way too high, I mostly just skip those. So there you have it, these are the factors I base my review on. Create a free website with
