Can I get a refund for a tournament which was cancelled due to technical problems at AnoPoker?

I always thought that freeroll tournaments were – by virtue of the name – free to enter. Why can I enter some, and not others?

All “Freeroll” tournaments at AnoPoker are completely free to enter. Simply register before the registration time for each tournament expires. Some Freeroll tournaments, however, require you to have earned a certain number of PokerPoints before you are allowed to register. This is intended to reward our regular players for their loyalty and support. These tournaments are called “PokerPoint Freerolls”.

I noticed a few freeroll tournaments that require passwords. Are these open to anyone, and if so, how do I get a password?

These special tournaments were organized by us on special request either from our partners who have a contract with our marketing department or players who have set up their own tournaments. These tournaments are for selected players only and AnoPoker, apart from providing the playing platform, is not involved. The logins for such tournaments are therefore secure and require passwords which are distributed by the independent tournament organizers.

How can I get onto your mailing list for Freerolls and promotions?

From now on, you will receive our newsletter with infos about AnoPoker promotions and other activities. If you have your own poker forum, please send us the online address of your poker forum so we can add you to our poker forum list.

How many PokerPoints do I have?

We would like to inform you that you can look up the required PokerPoint status by choosing the register option in the specific tournament lobby and by clicking the “Cashier” tab.

Can you tell me how PokerPoints are calculated?

To find out more about PokerPoints and how they are calculated, please use the following.

I tried to register for the (-) tournament, but I get the message “You have (for example) 33/200 required PokerPoints”. What does this mean?

This means that, at the moment, you have reached 33 out of the 200 PokerPoints required to register for this tournament.

Some Freeroll tournaments require you to have earned a certain number of PokerPoints before you are allowed to register. This is intended to reward our regular players for their loyalty and support. These tournaments are called “PokerPoint Freerolls” .

Do I get PokerPoints for playing in tournaments?

Not for regular play, only for the tournament fee, which can be considered a “house fee” as is “rake”. In Freerolls, no PokerPoints will be awarded. In buy-in tournaments, the number of PokerPoints awarded depends upon the fee. The main rule is: 1 PokerPoint for every $0.10 of the entry fee. For example, for a $10+$1 tournament (both Regular and Sit ‘n Go), you will receive 10 PokerPoints, for a $20+$2 you will receive 20 PokerPoints.
