Free spins bonuses are usually offered to both new and existing customers, which can play for free but still get a chance to win real money. Casinos offer free spins bonus mostly to promote a new game; that is why this kind of reward is perfect to try out new games without risking your money. In order to get it, you have to check casino’s terms and conditions carefully.

How the Free Spins Bonus Works

Free Spins can be offered on different online games but, most often, players can get this award on particular slot game to maximize total wins in coins. For most cases, a certain number of Scatter Symbols appearing on the reels is the trigger for the Free Spin. This gives you the possibility of spinning the reels without making a bet, and wins you get during this round stay with you. Besides, during this round, other perks can be given: double wilds or a whole wild reel. It is also possible to use other bonus features like Multipliers in a Free Spin.

In order to get free spins bonuses, casinos require you to sign up, but often they may require a deposit as well. They will package these bonuses in various forms: giving some players to use all at once, and others offering the bonuses spread over time. Nowadays, more and more casinos offer this kind of award even to existing players to reward them and build a loyal relationship, as well as to keep them coming back at least once a week.

Types of the Free Spins Bonus

Depending on the casino, the Free Spins bonus can be acquired:

  1. Without a deposit (you don’t need to pay anything to receive this award)
  2. With a deposit (you need to pay a particular amount of money, depending on the wagering requirements to receive this benefit)

The Downside: Wagering Requirements

As they say, all that glitters is not gold, and as with all offers, casinos ask you to follow certain wagering requirements to use this bonus. You can withdraw all winnings made through free spins, only once you fulfilled the wagering conditions. About that, each game contributes differently to help you fulfil wagering requirements. Generally speaking, slots and video slots contribution is 100% but some games, as video poker only contribute 10%. Always check terms and conditions to understand which game give the most.

Also, it is worth considering that once you won an amount of money through free spins, this money turns into bonus money. Bonus money usually has an expiration date of several days, depending on the casino. That means that if you don’t use it within the given time, the bonus will be automatically cancelled from your account. It’s also important to remember that wagering requirements for this bonus money is commonly set at 20-50 times the outcome of the free spins.


Free Spins bonuses are a perfect way for you to test a new game without risking much, and useful when you are interested in testing a new gambling site, but don’t want to deposit money yet. It also can be an award for a player’s loyalty.
