No Deposit Casino Bonuses

Latest posts by Man of Mystery (see all)

You may come across “no deposit” casino bonuses from time to time – they are not particularly rare. However, regardless of the apparent lack of risk, there are quite a few things to be aware of before you dive into these.

Important – Casinos, like bookies, usually check up on you when you want to withdraw. It is at this point where these apparently risk free bonuses can get you into trouble. There is absolutely no point in winning money if you can’t get it out of the casino.

The Casino

Before you sign up to any casino you must find out about it. There are plenty of rogues out there which use dodgy or rigged software, or which will steal your money. Check the reputation of the casino on Beatingbonuses and Casinomeister. Beatingbonuses has a list of all the casino signup offers, on which it tells you the software used at the casino. You can click through to read about each brand of software, and if it is not one of the major brands, avoid.

Many casinos are part of a group and some of these groups are quite big. Most groups will only let you have bonuses at one casino, but they may not check this until you try to withdraw your money. Always check which group the casino belongs to, and keep a note of the casinos you have done bonuses at so that you don’t duplicate. Again, Beatingbonuses is extremely useful for identifying the group to which a particular casino belongs.

The Offer

Always find and read the T&Cs. Many of these are buried under “Help” or “About us” or some other place where they are not visible from the homepage. The casino wants you to sign up, and clicking on the offer often takes you straight to the signup page. ALWAYS assume that there will be a fairly large WR on the bonus. You need to know what it is and which games are allowed. Some games may not count towards the wagering at all and some may count only 10% or 20% – this is very common. You don’t want to spend ages playing something only to find you have hardly made a dent in the WR. The bonus needs to have some chance of rewarding you for your time. Casinos with autoplay are better in this regard than ones which require manual play.

Check whether there are any maximum stakes allowed for the WR. If you have a big win early and decide to increase your stake, you don’t want to find these bets violate the T&Cs. Casinos can be very fussy and the bonus and winnings can disappear if you do something wrong.

Some no deposit bonuses have maximum amounts that you are allowed to withdraw from the bonus and this can be quite small.

Make sure that the bonus applies in your country, and check for any expiry date – like bookies, casinos sometimes leave expired offers showing on their sites.

Affiliate links, Bookmaker Casinos and Cashback

You may find that a particular offer is only available via a certain affiliate link, in which case you need to click through that link to get the bonus.

If the offer is attached to a bookmaker which has a sportsbook offer, do the sportsbook first. Quite often new casino customers who have wagered in the sportsbook are allowed casino bonuses, whereas new sports customers who have wagered in the casino are NOT allowed sports bonuses. Don’t assume that a bookie’s casino is as reputable as the bookie or is licensed in the same place. Some are not, so always check.

You can sometimes get cashback from casinos via various cashback sites. You should always read the terms of the cashback carefully – many of these require you to wager real money in the casino, and the no deposit bonus alone will not qualify you for the cashback.

What happens if you win?

Always find and read the casino’s withdrawal policy before you start. This is normally in the general Terms and Conditions. The key questions here are:

1. Do you have to deposit money before you can withdraw? The answer will almost always be yes. “No deposit” refers to playing the bonus, NOT to withdrawing your winnings.

2. If you do have to deposit, does this trigger a bonus? Crucially, can you opt out of this bonus, or are you going to be stuck with another big WR which now includes some of your own money? Even if you can cancel the bonus, you may need to bet the deposit through before you can withdraw and unlike a sportsbook balance, you can’t lay it off to minimize losses.

3. Is there a minimum withdrawal amount? A minimum of £30 is not unusual, and it can be frustrating if you have won say £10 but then need to deposit and risk £20 of your own money in order to withdraw.
