How to Build an Online Poker Bankroll for Free
The goal of this article is to show you how anyone can actually begin playing online poker for real money without making a deposit or using a credit card. I have made over 00 dollars playing poker online without ever using my own money. Itís a great way for beginning players to start risk-free. Listed below are 3 easy steps to follow.
Create a Neteller Account
Youíre going to need a place to keep the money you will cash out from the different poker rooms before you start playing. There are many options for financial transactions, but the best is Neteller.
Opening a Neteller account is easy, completely free and only takes a few minutes to set up. Itís also safe and secure.
To begin, go to the Neteller website, http://neteller.com and click on the ďOpen AccountĒ button. Follow the signup process and you will be issued a Neteller account number, a Secure ID, and the password you create. The Secure ID is basically like a second password. You will need this and your account number when you make deposits and withdrawals from the poker rooms.
A freeroll tournament is a poker tournament with no entry fee. Almost every poker room online offers some kind of freeroll. Some are for depositors and some require points, but many have no requirements at all.
The poker rooms do this for obvious promotional reasons; they hope you will have fun, make a deposit and become a long time, loyal player at their site.
To find a freeroll, check the Freeroll Tournament Schedule at:
PokerIncomeGuide.com alone lists over 250 freerolls a day! Thatís thousands of dollars in free money given away every single day.
This is only one way to build a bankroll for free. Itís the way I started, but the following method is even better.
Get Staked by Poker Affiliate Sites!
There are a growing number of poker affiliate sites that give you free money to sign up through their affiliate link. These sites have made a deal with the poker rooms. They are able to fund your account and still make a commission for bringing you in as a real money player. Itís a brilliant win-win-win situation.
I have found over 20 sites that give you free money. Below is a list of a few to start with.
Instant Bankroll offers up to 0 free at Party Poker, Absolute Poker, and Titan Poker.
Everest Poker - This deal is great. Everest offers 0 for free, no deposit or credit card activation required. Unfortunately, they just quit allowing players from the United States. However, telling them youíre from somewhere else is your choice.
Poker Time offers free to new members. The money should be credited to your account within 24 hours.
Royal Vegas offers free to new members also. The money automatically appears in your account within 24 hours of when you sign up.
