Most sites run a one off 'first depositors freeroll' with a decent prizepool which I completely agree with. I missed my FT one, but won $350 in my Ladbrokes one.
The problem is, it ends there. After that one its a free-for-all (excuse the pun!) with depositing and none depositing players all vying for a place.
Maybe if the registration was 1 hour, and it only opened to none depositors in the last 10 mins, that would be ok. I enjoy the Omaha freeroll and don't really bother with the rest, but its a prime-time freeroll, which fills quickly with Euro and US players, so unless I'm waiting for reg. to start I miss out.
Its frustrating when I have put a couple of grand into FT and someone who's just downloaded the software and never deposited has as much chance to play the freebies.
have the right idea - bronze, Silver, Gold etc freerolls depending how many player points you've earned in a month, meaning none depositors don't get a sniff.
I'm all for freerolls, I'd just like to see a few more geared towards loyal depositing players with smaller fields.
