On this page you will find the latest passwords for the Winning Poker Network´s USAFriendlyPokerSites Freebuys played on Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker.
Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker – the two leading skins on the Winning Poker Network – are the best USA-friendly poker sites for valuable online tournaments. The most well-known of these tournaments are the Million Dollar Sunday events – huge online poker tournaments with a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000,001 that attract thousands of players.
Due to the sizeable buy-ins for these events, the Network supports them with a comprehensive satellite and sub-satellite schedule. The schedule often includes multiple Mega-Satellites guaranteeing hundreds of seats for the target event. The Mega-Satellites can be bought into directly or players can win their seats via a series of sub-satellites starting at Freebuy level.
What Are Freebuy Sub-Satellites?
Freebuy sub-satellites are qualifiers with no entry fee, but which give players the opportunity to enhance their chip stacks by purchasing re-buys, and an add-on at the end of the re-buy period. Typically you will need to take advantage of the option to re-buy or add-on if you want to progress from the Freebuy sub-satellite, unless you enjoy an incredible amount of good fortune.
An example of how a Freebuy sub-satellite works is that you start with a chip stack equivalent to 20 Big Blinds (for example 1,000 chips with blinds starting at 25/50). You can re-buy 3,000 chips for $1.00 during the re-buy period (can be up to 18 levels/3 hours) and purchase an add-on of 10,000 chips for $2.00 at the end of the re-buy period.
Thereafter, the Freebuy sub-satellite continues in a freezeout format until the number of players remaining match the number of prizes on offer. The seats won in a Freebuy sub-satellite will be automatically credited to your account and can be found in the “Ticket Manager” section of the poker client under the “My Account” tab.
Please note: Starting chip stacks, opening blind levels, and re-buy/add-on costs can vary according to the value of the target tournament. Often Freebuy sub-satellites have extended late registration periods, but these too can vary. For example, the late registration periods for USAFriendlyPokerSites Mega Freebuys this year have varied from five levels to twelve levels.

How to Get an Extra Bonus on Americas Cardroom or Black Chip Poker
From time to time, Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker offer players the opportunity to get an extra bonus by reloading their accounts. These are worth taking advantage of even if you do not have any immediate need to deposit extra funds in your account and typically the reload bonuses are offered around big tournament series or special events – but not always.
So, what can you do if you need to reload your account and there is no bonus available? Well, if you only have an account at Americas Cardroom, it is possible to open a new account at Black Chip Poker and take advantage of another first deposit bonus. (Alternatively, if you only have an account at Black Chip Poker, you can open a new account at Americas Cardroom).
Is Bonus Hunting Allowed on the Winning Poker Network?
There are no rules against having an account with two or more different sites on the Winning Poker Network, provided you do not log into multiple accounts at the same time. This would result in all your accounts being suspended and your funds confiscated.
What Other Sites on the Network Can I Open an Account With?
There are four sites that fully operate on the Winning Poker Network, although some sites do not have the full range of promotions (for example the USAFriendlyPokerSites Freebuys are not available on True Poker and Ya Poker). The bonus codes for each site can be found in the following reviews.

Pros and Cons of Bonus Hunting on WPN
There are both pros and cons of bonus hunting on the Winning Poker Network and before creating extra accounts to take advantage of the extra bonus, you need to consider if the pros are worth as much to you as the cons. (Different players will be affected differently)
Pros of Bonus Hunting
Obviously, by creating an account with more than one site, you will be eligible for more than one first deposit bonus.
If you have been the victim of bum hunting, you will be able to use a different username when you create a second or third account.
Cons of Bonus Hunting
Your bankroll will be shared out between multiple sites, which might affect the stakes you can play at and your ability to clear an extra bonus.
If you have a high VIP status in Americas Cardroom´s Elite benefits program, you will not be able to carry forward your status to a new account and will have to start again at the lowest level in another site.
A Brief History of the Winning Poker Network´s Million Dollar Sunday
The Winning Poker Network´s Million Dollar Sunday evolved from the Online Super Series – originally an annual tournament series that started in 2012 with a $50,000 guaranteed Main Event. As the Online Super Series (OSS) grew in popularity, the size of its Main Event guaranteed prize money also expanded. By mid-2014, the Network announced an ambitious plan to run a “Winning Millions” OSS Main Event in December with a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Unfortunately, the initial Winning Millions OSS Main Event had to be cancelled during late registration due to multiple disconnection issues caused by DDoS attacks. It was successfully re-run in February 2015 and despite a substantial overlay, further Winning Millions events were held in April and August 2015, following which the name of the event was changed to “Million Dollar Sundays”.
An ambitious plan to run five back-to-back Million Dollar Sundays during the fall of 2015 was foiled by further DDoS attacks; but, in December 2015, the Network experienced its first $200,000 winner when “ahundredollars” became the first player to take down a million dollar guaranteed event without a final table deal. Further Million Dollar Sundays followed throughout 2016 – by the summer of which, the event had become the flagship tournament of the network´s new three-tiered “OSS Cub3d” series.
By the end of 2016, overlays in the Million Dollar Sunday were a distant memory and, in April 2017, a record number of entries (2,744) created a prize pool of $1,372,000 – beating the prize pool for that week´s PokerStars Sunday Million by almost $300,000. The success of that event, and a subsequent Million Dollar Sunday in September 2017, prompted the Network to announce its most ambitious sequence of million dollar guaranteed events yet – three Million Dollar Sundays within eight days.
The three Million Dollar Sunday events in October 2017 each had different buy-ins ($265, $540 and $2,100) and each surpassed its guarantee. Due to the fantastic response by players, the Network has plans to run weekly back-to-back Million Dollar Sundays at the beginning of 2018.
