No Deposit Casino Bonuses

Believe it or not, you can get a bonus from a casino without even having to deposit money.

This called a "no-deposit bonus" and it is useful for casinos as a promotional device. No-deposit bonuses put money into the player's hands upon signup, and the objectives for this can vary, from a token amount of money ($10, let's say) for purposes of introducing them to the games that can be played in the casino, to the instrument for a proposition by which the player can actually earn quite a bit of money that can eventually be placed into a real money account.

In the more imaginative way, the casino could give a certain amount of money or "free bets" that can be played during a specified time period, usually an hour. As the player, you will have this long to win as much as you can from the casino, and the key is that it is risk-free. In other words, you have only registered your information; you have not yet put up a deposit, so you won't be out any money.

You can win something through this process, but it is important to note that you are not going to be able to turn this into credits in a real money account unless you OPEN a real money account. And of course, that will require a deposit.

And if you win, there will be a certain limit placed on how much of those winnings you can apply to your account. So let's say you had $1500 in the form of a no-deposit bonus, and an hour to play. You may win $300 during the allotted amount of time, but you might only be allowed to use $100 to put into the account.

Of course, there's the other side of the coin, where you don't win anything during that risk-free round of play. Yes, it would seem a sad occasion, but it doesn't have to be.

If you lose, you can walk, one supposes, and you wouldn't be the worse off for it. However, casinos don't want t you to walk away with nothing. In fact, they don't want you to walk away at all. So they will usually offer to let you get in on their standard welcome bonus as a consolation, even if you lose. After all, this is what it is all about; they want you to be their customer, and they will do whatever they have to in order to get that done.
