No Deposit Bonuses

Unlike deposit bonuses - a no-deposit bonus does exactly what it says on the tin! You don’t need to make a deposit - this type of bonus is completely free – given to players without them ever having to make a deposit. Many of these bonuses are given to incentivise new players to sign up, but they can also be given to retain existing players.

Free Chip

On the face of it a no deposit casino bonus will look quite tempting and generous. When accepting such a bonus, the casino gives you a set amount of cash which you can then use to play any of their games. You will then be able to cash out once you have met their requirements in terms of any playthrough – this is the number of times you need to churn through the bonus before you can withdraw any winnings. For example if the bonus terms state a 30x play through is required and your no deposit bonus was €20.00 then you will have to make €600.00 in bets on the games before any cash out will be considered. An important thing to remember with this bonus is that the casino will often cap the amount you will be able to cash out (usually around 10x). But then again, it was completely free.

One Hours Free Play Bonus

These kinds of bonuses are becoming very common at a lot of online casinos. These work as follows; you are given a set amount of credits free of charge and then have up to one hour (or longer at some casinos) to place a certain amount of wagers in the hope that you will end the session with more money that you started with.

The casino will then let you “keep” a certain amount of these winnings. However, to redeem them you will usually need to make a deposit into the casino and then play through the amount you “won” a certain amount of times before you can actually withdraw any winnings won via the profit made in the first part of the bonus.

Free Spins

Another type of no deposit bonus is in the form of ‘Free Spins’. This is a set number of spins on a particular online slot machine given for free. Whatever you win from those spins is then yours to keep. Normally when free spins are given as a welcome, anything you win from the free spins will have a playthrough requirement attached to it. However, you will often find that the winnings from free spins given to existing players do not come with any kind of wagering requirement.
