Welcome Bonus Free Spins
Casinos have experienced a surge in revenue mostly because they are open to 'everyone' who meets the requirements ie. age and a jurisdiction where gaming is legal. The minimum cap of a deposit in most casinos is only $5 which most avid gamers can afford to spare. To ensure that an iGamer can benefit from such an amount and win big, there are Welcome Packages put in place by casinos which are the Deposit Bonus and the No Deposit Bonus which also include Free Spins.
Deposit Free Spins
In a Deposit Bonus Welcome Offer, the casino gives you a bonus for every deposit made using pre-selected payment methods such as Bank Transfer, Cheque, or e-Payment methods eg. Skrill and Paypal. For instance, if you make a deposit of $5 and the casino has a 100% bonus plus 50 Free Spins for any deposit over $5, then you will have $10 to use at the casino. Additionally, you will also have 50 spins to 'try out' the casino. You can use the 50 spins on a video slot that has been selected for you by the casino or in other instances, the casino allows you to try your luck on any slot that they have.
A common rule among casinos which aims to secure their investment is that you must use the spins and the bonus a certain number of times because some players just cash in on the bonus and withdraw a profit. If you win on your first Free Spin and the casino requires you to wager at least 60 times, then you have to continue playing through the 50 spins an additional 10 times which means that you use the deposit amount to test your fortunes. After the minimum requirements have been met and you have a balance on your account, then you can withdraw it.
No Deposit Free Spins
These happen to be the latest trend among online casinos and the best part about this offer is that as an iGamer, you don't need any money to profit. The Free Spins are offered alongside a bonus that is given to you by the casino regardless of whether you have made a deposit. All you need to do is to open an online casino account with the casino. Once you have set up the account, you then need to provide all your legal credentials. Note that you cannot claim the bonus, nor the spins unless your credentials are verified by the casino. This means that if you provide any false information, then you may be blacklisted, so you need to be as accurate as possible, otherwise, your application will not go through.
The No Deposit spins is a rare offer among Canadian Casinos and the rest the world over, so when you stumble on one it is worth a try. Once you have been verified, you can head over to the promo tab or section and claim the No Deposit spins. In some casinos, once you claim the offer, you have to wait for the support to inbox you a promo code to activate it while in others, they just credit your player account. Same as the Deposit Free Spins, there are general rules and requirements on how to claim and use the spins. You cannot cash out until these rules have been met, so try and win on every spin.
The Welcome Bonus Package spins are for newly registered players at the casino, while these are for existing clientele at the casino.
Once you have made a deposit to your player account, select your favorite slot game and set the gameplay preferences. After this is done, hit the spin button and watch the reels that contain the symbols spins away. Among the symbols, some are low value, high value, and others are rewarding symbols. Rewarding symbols such as Wilds and Scatters can award re-spins and Free Spins or unlock bonus games within the main game. A wager of say, $0.5 that was set to win you a maximum of $20 increases the amount to $50 because thanks to landing the Scatter symbols, you unlock the Bonus game where there are Multipliers.
The Multiplier, multiples your win amount and the Free Spins help you get more chances to win. For instance, if the bonus game has two Multipliers; 2 and 4. then it means that you $0.5 wager that was supposed to win you $20 now increases to $40 if you land the specific symbols linked with the Multiplier. Now imagine landing more Free Spins and scoring more wins within the bonus game and triggering the 4X Multiplier. You get to increase your wins exponentially!
VIP Program Free Spins
Most casinos have a VIP program for the loyal clientele. When you play in a casino on an almost regular basis, they award you points for every deposit made and at the end of a period, usually a calendar year, they review their points system and award players according to their points tally. Some might receive cash-back rewards, others might get vouchers or even a waiver on withdrawal fees. To sweeten these rewards, the casino might credit the player accounts with Free Spins either on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. The number of Spins awarded is determined on the VIP rating.
So, as you can see, Free Spins are a huge advantage in online gaming. The first thing is that they help you assess the worthiness of the casino. Think of it as sampling, where you register at a casino and you claim these spins plus the bonus for a $5, $10, or $15 deposit and start playing instantly. Over the course of a week, you might be able to assess the customer service, the viability of the games selection, and the efficiency of payment methods (withdrawal and deposit). Another factor is that you do not have to pay for them, particularly in the Free Trial games and the No Deposit Bonus scheme.
Every online slot game has a Free Trial game where you can play or practice for an infinite number of times, all for free without staking real money. The only thing is that you don't win anything even after you unlock the bonus game, Multiplier, or even match all the symbols the latter of which guarantees a jackpot. These spins are an invaluable in-game feature that helps unlock the more rewarding bonus games and Multipliers to increase player wins when you play for real money. All in all, they are one of the best things to ever happen to online gaming.
