Play Risk Free with Bonus Hunting

chipsLet’s admit it. We like to play online slots, and we especially like to play them risk free. Many online casinos offer the possibility to play slots even if you do not deposit, just to try them out, for fun. That’s a big opportunity for those who like to play, but are not interested in money games. For those who love the thrill and excitement coming from real money play and real winnings instead, there are several options available to completely eliminate, or at least greatly reduce, the risk of losing your money, while keeping intact the possibility to win for real. These opportunities come in the form of casino bonuses.

Many online casinos offer cash bonuses and other online casino promotions to entice new players. This is a marketing expenditure that often is worth more than hundreds of banners and TV spots. The main kinds of bonus offered are the sign-up bonus or match first deposit bonus and the bonus on following deposits. These are bonus offered with the deposit and represent a percentage of it. The most common is the 100% first deposit bonus. Depending on the casino there may be also special welcome packages for the high rollers or high spenders.

The bonuses come with wagering requirements that always concern the minimum amount you have to bet before you are allowed to withdraw and, sometimes, affect the types of games that are kept into account in the fulfilment of this minimum wager amount. You can’t simply sign up and walk away with the casino’s money, right? 😉 Considering that casino games are games of chance, anyone with its own house edge, the wagering requirements are studied to eliminate the positive expectation of the players. Good thing is that in statistics nothing is certain, so you can still bring home some winnings, sometimes even huge ones, with this free money.

The bonus that is certainly the most sought after by gamblers worldwide is the so called “no deposit bonus“, that gives you money without the need of any deposits for completely risk free bets. If the casino is focused on slots this bonus can come in the form of Free Spins.

The no-deposit bonus coming in the form of money in your account balance is sometimes also a “sticky bonus” or a “ghost bonus“, that means it is a “non-cashable bonus“. It forms a part of the player’s balance, but cannot be cashed out, so it is deducted when you withdraw, but can stick to your account or vanish depending on its typology.

If you have friends that you think might enjoy a casino playing experience you could get advantage of the “Referral bonus“. Here you get a bonus when your Referee completes some steps, mainly making the deposit and wagering it a certain number of times.

Some casinos may also offer some cash back on your losses, this is the “Cash-back bonus” or “Insurance bonus“. If the casino is part of a network you can get cash-backs for your gaming activity in all the casinos that are part of the network.

Last promotional elements to consider are the “Comps programs” or “VIP programs“, that reward all your gaming activity regardless you win or lose. You accrue points while you play and then you convert them in cash or other prizes and cool merchandise.

Mind all these free money opportunities next time you are going to join an online casino.
