While enjoying a brand-new edition of our weekly $500 freerolls, don’t forget that PokerStars now offers up to 65% Rakeback through the new PokerStars Rewards.
Another full edition of our Double Action freerolls lies ahead and as usual PokerStrategy.com tracked first time depositors at PokerStars PokerStars.uk PokerStars PokerStars.dk PokerStars.be PokerStars.ee PokerStars.pt are rewarded with access to several exclusive $500 freerolls.
You have until Thursday, March 3 to make your first deposit in order to access all eight Double Action tourneys coming up. Any deposits after this date will count towards all remaining freerolls.
In addition, new players will of course also profit from the usual welcome bonus that is offered to new members by PokerStars.
Deposited before? No problem!
For those of you that have deposited already, there’s no need to feel left out—we have a bonus for you too.
If you refer members via our Tell-a-Friend programme and they go on to cash in one of the Double Action freerolls, you will receive the equivalent amount of their prize money in your Tell-a-Friend account.
This means that the more players you refer, the more you stand to win.

Pokerstars Rewards scored a 78% jump in customer satisfaction for the 20% of players who tried it. The new system aims to be more generous and transparent.
You can get up to 65% rewards in the form of a baseline rakeback up to 25% and up to 40% more in the form of Monthly Challenges. All formats earn the same points including high stakes cash games, sports and casino.
