No deposit bonus

While it is true that deposit bonuses are common in online casinos, players will find different types of bonuses requiring no deposits on the bonus list of numerous casinos. Casinos understand that many new players do not want to deposit immediately after they register with the casino. Bearing this in mind, online casinos have come up with various schemes to allow new players to play in the casino without having to risk their own money initially.

In this article, FreeAussiePokies lists and explains how a player can be eligible for different no-deposit bonuses and how these bonuses work. Towards the end, we have also briefly enlisted the general terms and conditions attached to these bonuses.

We would like to start by briefly introducing no deposit bonus as many players might not be familiar with the concept. The bonus amount of a no deposit bonus does not depend on whether the player deposits money in the casino or not. These are basically free bonuses that the casino offers to the player, either to encourage them to try the casino games or to give them some incentives before making an actual deposit.

No deposit Cash Bonus

(Emupartners $3 bonus)

No deposit cash bonus is basically the opposite of deposit bonuses; they require no deposits and they are not based on a percentage. These are bonus cash that the casino offers right after you register. In order to claim this bonus, players need a voucher which the casino will send by email or text or in some cases, the player will have to contact the casino to get the voucher code, also known as the bonus code.  Players will have to submit this bonus code in order to be eligible for this bonus.

No deposit cash bonuses are relatively small in amount (you can’t argue since they are free), normally between $10 and $15. Players might find few online casinos that offer special monthly promotions for a larger bonus amount.

Since no-deposit cash bonuses do not require deposits, the wagering requirements are higher in comparison to deposit bonuses. There are other stipulations attached to these bonuses which are explained towards the end of this article in the terms and conditions section.

Free Spins Bonus

Free Spins are a fun way of earning no deposit bonuses. Most bonuses are straight forward, you deposit or not deposit, and/or enter a code and you receive the bonus. Free Spins on the other hand, allow you to play a pokie game on the casino to win your bonus.

In this bonus, casinos offer the player certain number of free spins soon after registration. Depending on the casino, the player might need a voucher code to play the game, or the player can simply just play the specified game allocated for the free spins.

Depending on the way the online casino has crafted the bonus, the bonus amount may come down to whatever the player has won during the bonus spins, therefore having no limits whereas others might limit their bonus amount regardless of the amount players win during those free spins.

There are numerous stipulations that are attached to free spins bonus and we have mentioned the most common ones below under the terms and conditions section.

Refer a friend bonus

Refer a friend bonus is offered by most online casinos in which they offer the player an incentive if they successfully invite a friend to register and deposit in the casino. To claim this bonus, players need to click on the invite a friend section of the casino, normally listed under their promotions page and enter the friend’s email address. An email will be sent to the friend and your mate has to click on the link mentioned in the email and register in order for you to receive your bonus.

Normally this bonus amount is set at $50 but it is up to the casino to increase or decrease it. The amount is still a bonus and you will have to playthrough it to treat is a cash.
