freeroll
 n.— «About 20 people had come to play poker before 2 p.m. yesterday, attracted by its being a “freeroll” day, they said, which generally involves a tournament that is free to enter but has a cash prize donated by the host, as a way to generate interest. None would give their names.» —“New Jersey Man Is Killed in Midtown Poker Game” by Michael Wilson, Annie Correal New York Times Nov. 4, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
