HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / March 27, 2018 / FreeRolls Poker Clubs, Inc., a subsidiary of FreeRolls Entertainment, Inc., announced today that it has secured a deal with international poker brand World Poker Tour® to bring a WPTDeepstacks® $100,000 Guaranteed Main event to Houston, Texas in September of this year.
"When we first decided to claim our stake of the growing poker craze in Texas, we knew we had to set ourselves apart by doing something that had never been done. This partnership with WPTDeepstacks® is the perfect introduction to the Texas poker marketplace," said Charles Potter, CEO of FreeRolls Entertainment. "Poker is major in the state of Texas and we intend on massively expanding our unique concept of completely legal and free poker play across the state within a very short period of time," he added.
Over the past several years, company founders have developed a unique business model that ensures its flagship location, FreeRolls Poker Club - South Houston and future FreeRolls affiliate clubs will be 100% compliant with Texas law. "When we decided to pursue this venture, our first mission was legal compliance. Instead of going to the lawyers first, who could only give us an opinion based on their interpretation of the law, we actually invited local law enforcement officials to sit down with us to completely examine our business model and we got from them just what we had hoped for," stated Trent T. Daniel, Business Development Director of FreeRolls Poker Clubs, Inc. "In recent years, the emerging status quo has been for Texas poker clubs to pursue an income model based on extra charges to its members in the form of what are commonly referred to as 'seat rentals' and 'time charges.' We felt, however, that in order to follow the letter of the law and not operate based on 'loopholes,' we needed to go the extra mile to ensure total and transparent compliance with section 47 of the Texas Penal Code. Under the FreeRolls Poker Clubs model, we are able to offer our members all of the poker they can handle with absolutely no extra costs or fees that we feel are unfair to players and, more importantly, according to law enforcement officials, are in violation of the law," he added.
The FreeRolls flagship location in Houston will begin celebrating its grand opening week on April 9, 2018, and is already in discussions with and accepting applications from other poker club operators and entrepreneurs seeking to establish a poker club under the FreeRolls brand. Since the recent WPTDeepstacks® announcement of its Houston tour stop, the company has had inquiries from over 45 candidates seeking to open FreeRolls Clubs in Northwest and North Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Galveston, Corpus Christie, and College Station.
In order to lay out the company's expansion plans, the Founders will host a "Get to Know FreeRolls" Facebook live session from the Club on opening day, April 9th at 1 PM Central Standard Time.
