As an gambler at an online casino, you may already know about the sign up bonuses and the first deposit bonuses. In addition, you are probably already familiar with all the bonuses and casino comps that you can earn while you are playing as well.
There is one misunderstood bonus that some people may not realize that they can take advantage of straight out the gate. This is the online casino free play bonus. This bonus usually runs between $5 and $50 depending upon which casino you are interested in.
In order to take advantage of this bonus you have to be a first time player at the casino. You will need to set up an account and then you can claim this bonus and begin playing.
This is a nice little incentive that an online casino will use to get you to try out their casino before you make a deposit. This is probably the biggest draw for many players. There is absolutely no risk to your bankroll and the bonus offers you the opportunity to “try it before you buy it” with real money and a chance to win real money.
There will be stipulations to this bonus, no matter what online casino you are using. You will have to bet a certain amount of times, or dollars before you can cash out. This is pretty much the same as any other casino bonus that you might take advantage of. For example, if the casino has a “wager-through” requirement of 150% you will have to bet at least $75 before you can cash out any winnings.
Reading the rules of the online casino bonus is extremely important because these percentage rates change often. There are also some games that a casino may deem ineligible for the bonus wager-through percentage.
