      Make a deposit of at least $50 at 888poker by July 16 and you're eligible to play in our exclusive freeroll. A total of $8,888 in cash is at stake, but we're also adding three shiny iPad 2s and raffle them between all participants.

      Freeroll details
      • Tournament starts: July 17, 15:00 GMT
      • Prize pool: $8,888 + 3 iPad 2s
      • Deposit period: between June 13, 00:01 GMT and July 16, 23:59 GMT
      • Registration opens: July 14, 08:00 GMT
      • Restrictions: You need an 888poker account created via PokerStrategy.com and a deposit of at least $50.

      Where can I find the freeroll? Open the 888poker lobby and then go to Tournaments -> Restricted.

      Does it have to be my first deposit? No. The deposit simply needs to be made between June 13, 00:01 GMT and July 16, 23:59 GMT.

      3x iPad 2s in our exclusive raffle
      On top of the $8,888 cash prize pool, you can also get your hands on one of Apple's gadgets, the iPad 2. These three iPad 2s will be added to a raffle - here's how it works:

      How can I get an iPad 2? The iPad 2s will be raffled between all PokerStrategists who participated in our exclusive $8,8888 freeroll.

      When is the raffle taking place? The raffle will be held on July 18. Soon after the raffle is held, the three PokerStrategists who won will be announced.

      How do I know if I won? The results of the raffle will be posted in a thread on the PokerStrategy.com forum. If you're one of the lucky winners, you will also be contacted via email by our Customer Support.

      Good luck to all participants!

      I got the email about this, so I deposited yesterday $100 and for some reason I cannot join it.

      I opened my 888poker account using the link from poker strategy.

      I also used a bonus code on my deposit yesterday. It should not make a difference, as a deposit is a deposit. But it looks like 888poker have messed up yet again and have a glitch with their system.

      Is anyone else having this problem?

      Its possible that it takes some time to receive ticket for it. You should get a mail telling you that you are invited/eligible for the freeroll.

      Hi,

      As malosanmaka already said, it could take some time to receive an invitation ticket from 888poker regarding this promotion.
      However, at the latest on Sunday around 13:00 GMT you should be able to register.

      Hi rhensan,

      In case you have made a deposit yesterday or today, you should be able to register for this freeroll at the latest on Sunday around 14:00 GMT, as 888poker is uploading all eligible players, who have made a deposit between Thursday and Saturday 23:59 GMT, on Sunday morning into their system.

      Hope this helps.

      Hi all,

      ty tomassio and malosan

      I have now deposited $600 in total yesterday in 888poker.

      I have received the email from 888 telling me I have a seat in this freeroll.

      But I am still unable to register for this tournament.

      I sent 888 an email including screen shots of the problem and I haven't heard back.

      It seems like their customer service is non-existant.

      My username is Twostacks3

      I am very disappointed with this site.


      Good luck all.
      Ant.

      Wow looks like someone pulled their finger out at long last.

      They finally fixed it and I'm registered.

      Hi,

      I just checked this with 888 and they told me that you have done a few deposits, but not a one time deposit of $50.

      45 mins to go and I still don't have my ticket, even though I created an account on friday and deposited $50. What is going on?

      Edit: Turns out I can't join because I'm registered through [edited by thazar]- another affiliate . I downloaded the software through them aaaaages ago but I made a new account and linked it to pokerstrategy.com. I didn't realise that you needed to download the software through pokerstrategy.com in order to link your account. Guess I'll know that for next time.
