Here are two freerolls going on this week worth a total of $600 in real cash winnings. It is two of our favorite casinos too; Red Stag and Miami Club. One of the freerolls has rebuys, and the other is a true freeze out. I will explain both below.
You need a free account to participate.

Freeze out vs. Rebuy Freerolls
A rebuy slot freeroll, or poker freeroll for that matter, allows a player to buy back in for a price if he or she loses their starting balance. This lets the gaming site make some money from a freeroll or at least help offset the cost of letting players battle for real money at a no cost entry.
A freeze out freeroll simply means you are frozen out after you lose your first balance. No getting a second chance. You bust, you are done.
Why it Matters
While this may be pointing out the obvious to our veteran readers, I believe it always bears repeating for new players in the freeroll scene. A rebuy tournament list of leaderboard winners is going to be dominated by players who have some cash on the site. Depositors. If you are a freeroll player who just goes for the free spins and no deposit bonuses, you will have a difficult time competing in rebuy freerolls. They’re still worth it, since you are investing zero for a chance to win real money, but freeze outs are a much better proposition.
A freeze out means everyone has the same chance to win, barring strategy implications of course.
If you like taking free shots at real money, then play them all. You will eventually score a win. I have argued before that you have a much better shot at winning more over the long run if you will deposit and play the rebuys though. A lot less players compete for these, so you have a better chance at landing higher on the leaderboard with just a couple of rebuys. That’s my 2 cents.
By the way, if you use the links in this post, you will get free credits to start at both sites. As long as its a new account!
