Most online casinos today offer players an incentive to sign up with
them. This means rewarding them with a certain type of free play bonus. Some
online casinos offer more than one free play bonus. The three main free play bonuses include
the no deposit bonus, one hour's free play or the free spins bonus (so players
can sample one of the featured video slots).
What is a Free Play Bonus?
Free play bonuses allow players to sample the casino games without having to
use their own cash. Players also have the chance of winning real money.
The No Deposit Bonus is generally a small cash gift awarded to players when
they sign up for the first time. This cash gift can range from anywhere between
$5 and $0 and players usually don't have to deposit anything to receive this
free cash gift.
Another example of a free play bonus is the One Hour Free Play Bonus. With
this special offer, players are given a certain amount of free cash to spend on selected games. They will have 60 minutes to spend this money in which time they
must try and win real cash. The duration can vary at different online casinos. Anything that a player manages to win within the time period will belong to them (usually up to a set maximum amount).
The last notable free play bonus is the Free Spins Bonus. When signing up to
an online casino for the first time, the players are given a specific
amount of free spins. Players can try out one of the featured video slots,
again with the chance to win real cash. One reputable online casino (at the time
of writing) is offering players 365 free spins.
Advantages of Free Play Bonuses
Free play bonuses give online casinos the opportunity to show their wares to players who may be skeptical or looking for a good deal. This bonus is risk-free and comes with almost no
strings attached for the player.
Free Play Bonus Terms and Conditions
Like all other promotional offers, free play bonuses have terms and
conditions that players should familiarise themselves with. For example, players
will have to wager a certain amount at the online casino before they can claim any
Also, different games will count more towards the wagering requirements.
Players have to stake more bets on table and card games than they would with the
scratch cards or slots. This is the same rule at almost every online casino.
A player must also register an account to qualify for this special offer
(usually only one account per household). The last and most crucial thing to
remember is that should a player win from a free play bonus, they cannot simply
withdraw their winnings. A minimum cash deposit is usually required before an
online casino will release the winnings, which may also then be released
