No Deposit Bonuses at Online Casinos

No Deposit Bonuses don’t come around very often and they are usually part of the welcome bonus, but compared to all other casino bonuses, this is still one of the most popular of all online casinos bonuses. A no deposit bonus is a generous offer that you can receive without having to make a deposit in your account. This free cash bonus is usually not much and it can generally range anywhere from just $/€/£1.00 up to no more than $/€/£10.00 or $/€/£20.00.

You may find the occasional free no deposit bonus has been dropped into your account simply for logging in to your preferred gaming site. Alternatively, you may need to opt-in to claim a no deposit bonus or you may need to enter a unique bonus code into the required field to claim your free no deposit bonus. Always remember to read through the bonus T’s & C’s to find out exactly how you can claim your no deposit bonus. As soon as you have received your free casino money you can then use this cash on any of the games.

Just like most other online casino bonuses though, you cannot just withdraw the no deposit bonus cash as soon as it arrives in your account. You have to complete the wagering requirements that are attached to the bonus before a withdrawal is possible. If there were no wagering requirements, players could simply withdraw the cash and spend it elsewhere and this would quickly put a lot of casinos out of business. You may have to wager your no deposit bonus cash anywhere from 10x times to 60x times the bonus amount before you can withdraw your winnings.

If you receive a free $/€/£10 no deposit bonus with a 20x times wagering requirement attached to it, you would need to wager a total of $/€/£200 before you could withdraw any of your winnings (20x $/€/£10). The lower the wagering requirement is, the quicker you will be able to get your hands on your winnings. Don’t forget that you can forfeit your bonus cash at any time though and although it means you won’t have any free money to play with, you also won’t have to worry about completing any wagering requirements.

Not all online casino bonuses offer no deposit bonuses, so when these generous offers do come around, try to take full advantage. When playing on the games to complete the wagering requirements, you also need to remember that games like the Slots, Scratchcards and Keno games will generally contribute 100% towards completing them, but game like Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Craps (and most other Table & Card Games) may only contribute anywhere from just 1.00% up to no more than 20% towards completing them.

You can generally find some attractive no deposit bonuses at casinos which are powered by Microgaming, Playtech, Realtime Gaming, NetEnt, IGT Interactive, WMS Gaming and Rival Gaming, but remember, if the bonus sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Make sure that you only ever deposit, play and accept bonuses at fully licensed online casinos which have proven track records.
