When it comes to sitting at home due to Coronacrisis, self-entertainment comes to the fore (until everyone’s vaccinated and safe). If a person decides that a type of entertainment is an online casino, then it is about time to find out, what advantages and bonuses online gambling facilities bring. Specifically, we’re talking about free spins (FSs) that players can have to try various games.
There are 2 varieties of free spins:
Each type has its own characteristics. Let’s consider them.
Characteristics of FSs are that they are given to new and existing punters in online casino venues to be used in various online pokies. FSs are the simplest guaranteed way to become acquainted with those pokies, which one hasn’t tried before. But also, it is a way to play in some loud-name pokies if FSs are assigned to them.
When a casino’s administration decides to grant FSs to some of its players, it usually defines what exactly pokies are subject to these FSs. On rare occasions, specific games aren’t defined and then FSs are applicable to all pokies in this gaming venue. Not often but it happens. Usually, FSs are given not only to promote the desire of punters to play but also to promote certain pokies in this certain venue for the reason of increasing their popularity.
Below, we are considering what’s the basic difference between the two distinguished types of promotional FSs.
The reviewed types of FSs are defined in more detail below. But no matter what their differences by nature are, the main goal of them for a player is one: have bigger and better fun with them than what it would be without them. In addition to fun, there’s also a real possibility to win money, whilst it is impossible to have any winnings when playing in a demo mode.
This type is given to new or existing gamblers after they make a deposit to their casino’s account balance. Such a deposit, as a rule, has certain minimum requirements:
In addition to minimum demands, the casino can establish maximum ones, for instance, no more than X amount of FSs are given (regardless of the size of the deposit).
FSs are given shortly after the deposit lands the account’s balance.
These FSs are given for mere registration and a punter really isn’t obliged to do anything but registering to obtain the gift. Although, additional actions may be required connected to the fact of registration to claim the bonus:
These aren’t hard to do even if they are requested. Also, identifying self at an early stage allows doing all further withdrawals faster. Thus, we really don’t see any reason to deny the casino to collect this information.
The biggest question of punters about coupon codes for no-deposit FSs: are they converted into cash? Withdrawing them is possible on the level of gambling software of casinos. But the thing is that it is not done until a punter fulfills all requirements of wagering attached to this gift. It wouldn’t be said it is hard or impossible to do. It’s just there – and it protects the casino from losing money due to such players who want to withdraw money generated by FSs immediately.
When it comes to a deposit-based cash bonus given by a casino, withdrawal is easier: the money is on the account at once, so withdrawing is just a matter of creating a withdrawal application (if allowed). But it is somewhat more entangled with FSs: they are not money immediately, they have to be first turned into money by playing pokies and winning in them. Losing means no money, though. Only if any money is won, it is brought to a bonus account and cashable. But even before that, some casinos may put an additional requirement: to make a humble deposit to be able to withdraw bonus money coming from bonus FSs. Thus, if the punter’s only goal is to cash out FSs as soon as possible, then maybe it is not good reasoning to play in the first place. But if the goal is to have ultimate fun thanks to received FSs, then, yes, gambling is the best solution.
In addition to newcomers, already existing players also can receive free spins, although, there are fewer possibilities for them to get ‘em, as they already can’t have a possibility of no-deposit FSs. Existing players are usually considered those who did at least 1 depositing in the past. So for them, the only way of obtaining anything in the future is to keep depositing, getting connected FSs to that event. Although, there may be such gifts as periodic receiving of free spins. For instance, on a guy’s birthday or on a birthday of the casino. These can also come with a weekly cashback.
Getting and playing pokies with free spins is actually fun. After one registers in a new gambling house and doesn’t pretty much know where to start, FSs can become helpful, showing nice pokies to start with. Who knows, maybe those pokies will become the most beloved ones for this man or woman player?
Getting FSs isn’t that hard. If they aren’t immediately given automatically after an account of a new player is created, then it is advised to go to the page called something like ‘Cashier’ or ‘Bonus’ to find there the symbols of FSs and enter them into a bonus field. Some other licensed casinos may offer to address the support service in order to claim them.
Before accepting any gift from any casino, it is strongly advised to carefully read the Terms and Conditions of this gaming venue. This document shall contain conditions of granting and using FSs, as well as the circumstances of withdrawing any money received as the result of FSs usage. A punter must agree with those conditions and to understand if the conditions are achievable. If one disagrees with conditions, it is inadvisable to start gambling in this venue (especially if it requires any money, which one doesn’t agree to pay).
Wagering is not always attached to FSs. It can happen that FSs are given just like that, without any demands to use them. However, in this case, it is rather unbelievable that a person will be allowed to withdraw any money coming as a result of winnings using these FSs. Usually, if winnings occur, they’ll be allowed to use only to do more bets in pokies or other types of games, unless otherwise stated in the Terms and Conditions. That, by the way, another reason to carefully become acquainted with this important document.
As more and more modern gambling houses in Australia and all over the world shift to mobile platforms, it is rather hard to believe that users of mobile phones won’t be able to use FSs. In fact, if some casino promotes the mobile play, it can provide even more luxuriant FSs to its mobile gamblers, especially newcomers.
One should read the Terms and Conditions first of all, as they define these pitfalls:
In addition, a casino one chooses to play has to be licensed (with the level of license at least Curacao or better of all, UKGC) – otherwise, we know the cases when gamblers were simply banned from casinos without returning their balances or paying winnings. Scums are not rare on the Internet and some casinos aren’t an exclusion.
Yes, the basic demand is that a player should have an account to be paid anything. Without an account, how the casino would know where to pay?
It comes after meeting wagering (and, probably, depositing) requirements. For new players, some casinos may restrict withdrawals before they get to a certain level, like, for instance, reaching the total volume of $10,000 in bets.
Since there are no legislative restrictions or fines imposed on natural persons in Australia for playing casino games online, all casinos accepting Aussies and having at least any reputable gambling license are legit.
If there is no too harsh wagering requirement (no more than x50), keeping winnings is easy. If anything above x50 is imposed, then, largely likely, a player will be left without any bonus money or FSs.
It only depends on the current promo policy of the casino. We’ve seen numbers from 5 to 2,000 FSs given at once. So the only thing that prevents anyone from having huge giveaways is that one doesn’t roam the market searching for the best situational offers.
