You can find the password at the Bovada facebook page. They released it there on the wall.
The password is:
Be sure to check the Bovada facebook page for more upcoming freerolls they have going on.
As far as how much will be in the prize pool for this freeroll, you can expect it to be a $1K prize pool. The freeroll was supposed to have 1% (up to $10K) of the winnings from TeamBovada, but since that number was so small they went ahead and put in $1K. How very nice of them.
Here’s what Bovada had to say about it at their facebook page:
“Bovada would like to congratulate John S. who made it into the money at WSOP 2014 and made it possible for us to hold the freeroll next week. Because the freeroll would have been quite small at 1% of John’s winnings, we have decided to make it a total of $1K. The password will be announced on this Thursday, July 17, and the freeroll will take place on on Thursday July 24 at 9:05 PM ET.”
Surprise Freeroll coming from Bovada because of outage
If you were trying to get onto the Bovada poker client last night you were most likely not able to because of the outage. People that were playing in tournaments and cash games last night got kicked off when the Bovada servers shut down. This was not a planned shut down. People were in the middle of tourneys and they were not happy when they were kicked off.
Bovada has come out and apologized on their facebook page, and they’re going to put on a “sorry for the trouble” freeroll for their poker players. Here’s what they had to say:
“We would like to apologize for the outage last night. We realize that there were many of you who could not log in to the software for a period of time, and that some players were disconnected in the middle of tournaments. All issues with the site and software have been resolved, and everything is up and running again. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused and thank you for your patience. If you have any questions please contact customer service with your account number.
As a thank-you for your patience and understanding last night, we are having a special freeroll next week. We will update you with details of the freeroll as well as the password by the end of the week.”
If you want to play in this freeroll then you’ll just need a Bovada account. I’m sure they won’t have any other requirements to entry. They should release the password info at their Bovada facebook page.
