$88,888 Mothers Day Freeroll @ Go Casino / Online Vegas (Vegas Tech) USA ok.
Runs May 7-14, $18,888 first prize, 2000 winners total. USA players accepted.
Keep in mind the low starting stack of $100 and steep rebuy fee which is $14.50.

A couple of other decent freerolls:

$3000 weekly slots freerolls @ English Harbour group (Vegas Tech) USA ok.
Top 490 players get paid in these ones - look for the opportunity of a cheeky single coin spin for a few bucks win.

$1000 Craps freeroll @ VIP Casino (Cryptologic) - May 1-15.
$1000 Video Poker freeroll @ VIP Casino (Cryptologic) - May 16-31.
Only 10 minutes playtime in these ones so you have to be quick! USA players not allowed.

Batman freeroll @ CasinoJoy (Cryptologic) - May 16-31.
At only €50, this one isn't huge but its a good opportunity to try out the Cryptologic Batman slot which is still relatively new. USA players not allowed.

$3500 Memorial Day Freeroll @ Go Casino / Online Vegas (Vegas Tech) USA ok.
Runs May 31 10am - 10pm, on the Fire Hawk slot machine. USA players accepted.

Disaster on the weekend blackjack! I worked my way up to 1100 or so and was in 3rd spot for $500 prize. But then I was overtaken by a few people who had over 3000 and pushed me back to 5th. So I stacked on the big bets and busted out ... and then so did 2 of them above me. If I had sat tight I would have won $500! Sick

On a more positive note I won a whole $5 in the weekly slots freeroll. Post above updated with my results.

Ok I am not making the same mistake as last week. I am now sitting in 3rd position in this weekend's blackjack tournament with about 30 minutes to go. 3rd will win $500, but 4th or 5th would still be great at $250. I am too far behind for 2nd or 1st.

Hey that's not bad there ed! Ya know i am surprised that coming in 107th place only payed $25. That is a pretty good spot to place considering there had to be a ton of players in it.

I hope you keep a tally again this month. I really enjoy watching your progress. I am having a bit of a problem finding slot tourneys now that will accept ewalletxpress. For the most part i have to play exclusively free and hold my breath.

I am curious on your win for 107th place....how many times did you re-buy if any?

No rebuys - I actually forgot all about it and only realised after it had finished. At one stage I was in the top 50. If I had stayed above 100th place I would have won at least $50.

But I only needed a small win to get there. I think I started the tournament with $75 and I only got up to about $140. But most people playing bust out so finishing only slightly ahead is enough to earn a prize almost every time.
