I know of one that allows you to win $10 if you play the most play money hands for the week. You need to be in the top 25 to collect the $10. It might take 1-2 hours to win it. Last week all you needed was 50 hands at the play money tables to collect!

Hey I bet you want to know the site. Sorry! It is PokeRound. I could post a link but I am not sure of the site's address. I just used a banner at another forum and lost my $10. The site has very little traffic, almost desolate!

Its not my link, but here it is: http://pokeround.richwebmaster.com?pf=25052&bn=pr_hor_1.gif

If it isn't ok to post the link then delete whatever isn't needed. I am not even sure if that link is a picture (.gif) or what, maybe I copied the wrong part.

Good Luck on the $10 though!

Still looking for more poker sites that let you earn Poker Points for playing at play money tables.

You can drop Bikini poker from the list. No one has been able to log into the site in almost a month. Maybe more. And support does not respond to E-mails sent to them or message left on their forum.

Looks like I can kiss goodbye to the $3 I won at their site. Any all those Points I collected there were suppose to be worth more than party poker points.

Sorry I didn't get around to explaining UB's point system until now. But, it is pretty simple.

For every hour you play you get 1 point.

You can use the points you earn in several ways. Keep in mind I am talking about points earned playing at the freetables or where no rake is taken.

You can play for 2400 hours on one table or 600 hours playing 4 tables at once. This would net you 2400 points. You could use those points to buy yourself a niffty UB baseball cap. Woohooo. 2400 or 600 hours of play to get a hat. Just play 24 hours a day for 25 straight days. Or, play 4,000,000 hours at one table or 1,000,000 hours at 4 tables and you could buy yourself a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. Let's see. 1,000,000 hours 24 hours a day would take you 114 years, 41 days, 23 hours and 24 minutes to make enough points to buy the Harley. :D

UB has not point tournaments that pay in UB Points.

You could play in a UB point sit and goes for as little as 100 points. 500 points to 1st, 300 to 2nd, and 200 to 3rd place. This is out of ten players. The six player SNG's pay 2 places.

The highest UB Point Buy in that pays in UB Points is 2500+250. Places paid breakdown is 50% for 1st, 30% for 2nd, and 20% for third.

Or you could sit down at a ring table with your points and play. 10/20 point blinds limit or 10/25 blinds for no limit.

You are limit to earn 500 UB points for month. I am not sure if this only applies to the Play money and No Rake ring tables. Or to real money as well. Someone might clarify that for us.

I think Absolute poker does this also.. i currently don't have access to poker sites as my work blocked them out so i can't check it out for you right now but i'm pretty sure they have some sort of play chip points going on there.

I don't think absolute does.They have AP points but you can only get these with money. You can use free roll winnings to earn these.

Here is a little quote from Absolute's FAQ's this is part of the section on ARPs (Absolute Reward Points)

"Dear Valued Player,

Welcome to the Absolute Rewards Loyalty Program! Team Absolute recognizes our players' continued patronage through Absolute Rewards Points (AR Points). AR Points are easy and quick to earn and are awarded 2 different ways.

1. For hands played at real money ring games
2. Tournament buy-in fees."

So nope. Absolute does not offer point for playing free money games.

Another Update.

World Poker Exchange now offers a $50 FPP (Frequent Player Points) freeroll. It costs 100 FPP to enter. That is better than the 1000 FPP it costs to enter the $500 FPP freeroll.

Well, actually it is about the same I suppose. 10x and many points for 10x the payout. Bottom prize is $1.75 for the 100 FPP and $17.50 for the 1000 FPP freeroll. $15 for top on the 100 and $150 for top on the 1000 FPP freeroll.

The problem for play money as well as real money players, You only earn points if you call the flop. In the case of the play money player 1/300 of a point for every flop you call.

The bigger problem for the for the play money players. It would take 30,000 hands seeing the flop for everyone of those hands to earn your 100 FPP to be able to join the 100 FP freeroll. BTW, you are only permitted to earn 5 points a day for play money tables. You would have to see 1500 hands to get all those 5 points. So assume you could play 100 hands per hour. That is saying a lot because remember you don't get any credit for hands folded preflop. Assume you call every hand and get the 100 hands per hour. 3 hours would net you all of 1 point. It would take you 300 hours to earn enough points just to buy into the $50 FPP freeroll.

The point system structure is awful for either the play money or real money players. Probably one of the worst point systems in the industry.

Think about Jetset. 50 hands one point. 25,000 hands would get you into there weekly $500 main event. Bottom prize is $1.60 and the top prize $125. But, you can pay 40 points to get a chance at 9 seats which would only be 2000 hands or 80 points for a chance at 18 seats. Plus as long as you are not sitting out each hand counts as 1/50 of a point.

Much more advantagous to go with jetset.

Poker points

There are two Poker sites that i know of that have where you can get poker points by playing in their freeroll tourneys. The top 40 places award you with poker points. These sites are BugsysClub.com and Pokerpages.com. Click on their free play tab after you sign up and start playing. there are alot of nice players on the sites.
These tourneys are ran every 20 minutes on the hour. When you play in the freerolls and you win points, you will then be able to play in their Holdem games for points and win points at the tables, but you can also lose them on the regular tables, so watch how you bet them ok.
They also start you out with 1000 in play money at the play money tables. You do not earn points in those, but you keep what play money you win.

There are also two another sites that i like to play in and they are WingowsPoker.com gives you $5.00 in real money just for signing up, no deposit.
The other site PitBullPoker.com. PitBull gives you $10.00 in free money just for signing up, with no deposit.

Hey thanks ev1, :) :eek: :) :eek: :) :eek: ;) ;) ;)

I know big bonus bucks where I play offers FPP. They have FPP freerolls often. I am not familiar with the details but it is available. I usually play when I have enough FPPs. It does'nt seem to take to long to aquire them.

Have you opened up a cash account with them, no need to deposit but I think you need to open an account in order to recieve the free $.

JimboJim.

Yes if have not yet recieved your free real money, then contact the sites by, online support, toll free number or email. I contacted Wingows by phone and Pitbull by online support. Tell them the problem and give them your information when they ask for it ok. If you have any more questions please let me know.

Thanks,
TexasHoney
