Is this a Coral Poker freeroll? Not exactly. Although there is no real money required to enter the tournament, you will still need to have 25 points in your Coral Poker account to enter.

This means that you will need to play at Coral Poker real money games and tournaments — at least briefly — in order to generate enough points to play in this tournament. Coral Poker players earn points at a rate of 10 per $1 in rake, meaning a Coral Poker playeer who wishes to enter this event must generate $2.50 in rake.

A major positive of the this format is that fewer people enter these tournaments given the entry requirement (meaning that not every Coral Poker can enter the event with the click of the mouse. The entry requirement, while still low — increases the value of the event making the tournament worth it to many players.
