For the past few years, Carbon Poker has been one of the top sites when it comes to Badugi action. Not only does this poker room offer full cash game tables at various points throughout the day, but you can also find Badugi tournaments here too. And if you’re looking to build a larger bankroll for this fun poker variant, please keep in mind that Carbon has rolled out some new freeroll promotions. Seeing as how one of the freeroll opportunities gives you the chance to play for a $10,000 prize pool, these promos are definitely worth discussing!
$10k Depositors Freeroll
Headlining the new batch of free tournaments at Carbon is a $10,000 Depositors Freeroll. As the name implies, you merely need to make a deposit at some point during the month and you’ll be given a $10k freeroll ticket. And it doesn’t matter if you’re a new or existing player because both will get in on this deal after depositing.
The $10k Depositors Freeroll happens on the second Sunday of every month at 13:00 server time. So if you were to make a deposit in December, for example, your ticket would be good for the January $10k freeroll. To find this tournament, make sure to look under the “Tournaments” and “Special” tabs in this site’s software. Also don’t forget that new players can get a 150% up to $750 bonus by signing up at Carbon Poker with the “MACPOKER” code. Considering that your deposit will already net you a $10k freeroll seat, the bonus only sweetens the deal!
At first, the term “two-a-day” might remind you of the cringe-worthy, double workouts that football players put in during scorching summer days. But at Carbon, you can take comfort in knowing that Two-a-Day is simply another opportunity to earn free money. Anybody who can collect two VIP points a day throughout an entire month will qualify for a $1,000 freeroll.
To get started, you merely need to click “Activate Promo” in your player admin area and try to earn two points a day for an entire calendar month. Assuming you can complete this mini-endurance challenge, you’ll receive a $1k freeroll ticket. Note that the freeroll happens on the second Saturday of the following month at 13:00 CET. You can find this tourney by looking under the ‘Tournaments” and “Special” tabs.
Not everything is about freerolls at Carbon Poker since they’re also giving existing players a chance to earn a huge reload bonus. If you’re already a member of this site, you need to deposit before October 31st, 2012 (11:59pm EST) with the “OCTPK” code to get a 100% up to $1,000 reload bonus. From here you need to earn the reward by collecting VIP points in Carbon tournaments and cash games; the bonus is unlocked in $5 increments.
Besides the promos we’ve already discussed, you should also know that Carbon runs a full lineup of regular freerolls every week. There are several $50 daily freerolls where entry is unrestricted, and you merely need to check this site’s software to find them. What’s especially nice about these daily free tournaments is that you’ll find a variety of different variations such as No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Hold’em and H.O.R.S.E. So whether you’re a new player trying to build a bankroll or just somebody who wants a shot at free money, take a look at these daily tourneys.
One more way that players can get in on the freeroll action is through the Carbon Poker VIP program. And what’s nice is that it doesn’t matter what VIP level you’re at because everybody will receive a big monthly freeroll ticket. Below you can see what levels receive which tickets:
$10,000 Monthly VIP Freeroll – Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, Ether and Ether+ members
$3,500 Monthly VIP Freeroll – Ether and Ether+ members
In addition to the free tournament tickets, Carbon VIP members will also get access to a number of other privileges and bonuses. Some of the benefits that players may receive from this program include cashback, free poker training, free check withdrawals, personal coaching, concierge service and a $500 monthly cash bonus. Now keep in mind that your VIP status will determine how many rewards you receive. However, even at the lowest level, Earth, you’ll be getting plenty of bonuses, which is just one more great reason to play at Carbon.
