Redeeming No Deposit Bonuses

Many casinos offer special deals, including some that require no deposit at all. If you're interested in learning more about where to find such offers, and how to redeem them, we've outlined the basics below.

Where to Find No Deposit Codes

Casinos run a lot of deals and you can easily find each one's individual offer (or offers) on the site itself. But given how many casinos there are this can be pretty time-consuming. A better bet for quickly comparing the different deals available is through review sites, which regularly lists codes from a variety of different sources. On top of this, such sites sometimes have exclusives, so two lists covering the same set of casinos might have different deals.

Redeeming No Deposit Bonuses

It's very simple to redeem a bonus. All you need do is sign into the casino, and visit the right area (usually the 'cashier' section). Enter the code, and the deal should be redeemed at once, and the money placed in your account, ready to use.

It's also worth knowing that some no deposit deals don't have a code at all. They're simply activated upon registering/signing in with a casino.

From Redemption to Withdrawal

It's almost never possible to just cut and run. Once the money is in your account there are usually conditions that must be met in order to withdraw it. The biggest restriction is the playthrough or wagering requirement. To stop players immediately withdrawing cash, the wagering requirement means a certain multiple of the value of the bonus has to be wagered first. For example, a $30 free cash promotion might come with a $1,200 wagering requirement. It's also worth noting that different games might have different rates of contribution towards this. Slots tend to be 100% whereas table games can be significantly lower, increasing the total amount you need to wager.

There's also a ceiling on the maximum amount you can withdraw. This is often a few hundred dollars and can vary a bit from one casino to another. Bear in mind these two restrictions when considering which offer you might prefer.

Types of No Deposit Offer

There are several different types of no deposit bonus. Small sums in the form of free spins/credits tied to specific slots or other games are a common form, as is a similar low sum in cash (which is more flexible and can be used on a wide variety of games).

Players can also refer a friend to the casino, although sometimes this only leads to a bonus if the friend makes a deposit. Other times the bonus is paid out upon registration.

The redemption of special offers is pretty straightforward. Just be sure to consider the limitations when determining which bonus you want to claim.
