Social Poker - Born in the Poker Boom

The Free Poker Network is a Social Poker phenomenon that was born out of the "poker boom" in 2004 to offer casual players an entertainment free-play option for enjoying the game of Texas Holdem. The Free Poker Network offers free-play Poker League Nights at Bars & restaurants around the country. Players play Texas Holdem for points, to qualify for National Championship events in Las Vegas.

Over the years, there have been many wonderful success stories, and many more friendships created.

The Free Poker Network continues to deliver great prizes season after season. There are currently over 200 leagues and 10,000+ players playing in the league. The latest promotion offers players a chance at a $100,000 freeroll at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas in January 2024.

The focus with social gaming is entertainment. But also the exciting wins by players in the league have provided a lot of inspiration. The league’s first major success story was Jenny Kriewald, a mother of three from Valley City, ND. She earned a seat to a Heartland Poker Tour event through the league and went on to become the HPT’s first female champion! Her first place prize of $56,000 came as a direct result of playing free texas holdem. Joel Smith, current National Champion also went on to cash in the most recent World Series of Poker, a seat he won playing free poker.

From day one, the league made a long-term commitment to success. Many poker leagues have come and gone over the years, but FPN continues to stay strong thanks to players, sponsors, and representatives who share the same passion for poker and good times.

Players in the league today have MORE opportunity than ever before. With the combination of live weekly play, playoff events such as Tournament of Champions, and State Championship events, players have multiple ways to qualify for our exclusive national finals! 

To all the sponsoring locations and players that make the league what it is - THANK YOU!
