Bonus offers come in all shapes and sizes, and many come with a deposit requirement attached. However, the most sought after is undoubtedly the no deposit casino bonus. Many NetEnt online casinos give these away as a sweetener to get you playing, particularly as part of the welcome bonus, alongside a larger deposit bonus.

With the bonus just sitting in their account ready and waiting to play, this gives the player the opportunity to try out all the best new games from NetEnt and others, along with a chance to try out new online casinos that are trying to attract players.

No deposit bonuses at NetEnt casinos are often smaller than their deposit counterparts, as obviously casinos can’t give away masses of ‘free’ money. The best no deposit bonus offer would generally be between to €5 to €10, sometimes a little higher, but only occasionally.
Remember, although you don’t have to part with any money for the bonus itself, they often come with larger wagering requirements, meaning that getting your hands on the winnings is a little tougher.

There are several other types of no deposit bonuses that we will present in this article. Some of them have nothing to do with NetEnt as such. They are, however, available at some sites with NetEnt games. So we thought, why not giving you some additional information on how to claim this extra money to play with? Sometimes it is fun to get more for a buck, even if you have to play a product you don’t normally play.

Free Bets on Betting

As you for sure have noticed, most of the best online betting sites today offer you NetEnt casino games. These include Bet365, Betsson, Unibet, William Hill and Betfair. Apart from claiming your NetEnt free spins and casino bonus that is included into your welcome package, you could and should accept their free bet offer.

When people choose to go with a new bookmaker, the same as with an online casino, they tend to look for an incentive. In online bookmakers, this tends to be a free bet. However, as with no deposit bonuses, it isn’t just free money. There are terms and conditions that apply when you claim your free bets on betting. This makes it a little less appealing at times.
Some online bookmakers offer, for example, a ‘€25 free bet’ for a new account, which sounds good. However, to get this offer you have to place a bet with your own money that has to contain at least one selection with odds of at least 2.00 – unless it’s four-fold or greater.
They then ‘match’ this bet with ‘bonus’ money up to €25. Basically, to get your free bet, you have to bet on odds, with your own money, where you have less than 50% chance of winning. They want you to lose your own money before they give you anything.

Then, should you win anything on that free bet, you can’t withdraw it anyway because you need to fulfill a wagering requirement – so you may have to bet another €100. When you look at it like that, it hardly seems worth it.

However, sometimes you may be able to get a ‘No Deposit’ free bet, where you aren’t required to wager any of your own money to use it. Certain online bookmakers do offer ‘€10 free bet no deposit needed’. although at first sight it’s nowhere near as much, this is a much better deal than the €25 free bet because you are not being forced to gamble your money on low odds to get it. Obviously there are still terms and conditions attached, such as the fact that it can only be used on a ‘single’ or ‘each-way’ bet. Also, there may well be stipulations when it comes to withdrawing, but at least you get to play it without splashing your own cash.

When it comes to free bets, the point is that you need to be careful, for the one or two good offers out there, the market is flooded with offers that are essentially a waste of time and money. So make sure you check out those T&Cs before you commit to anything.

Free Bingo Rounds

There are a couple of way to get play free rounds in bingo, should you wish. You can either look for online casinos that offer free games, or look for online casinos that offer bingo bonuses, that you can use to play online bingo for free.

The free games tend to offer a free money ‘win’ such as a daily jackpot, so the idea of winning the €50 jackpot after depositing no money sounds great, but like most other offers, the jackpot isn’t generally paid out in cash, but in ‘Bingo Bonus Funds’. But what exactly does this mean?

Well, you get your free game/s, you play and you win the €50 jackpot which is deposited straight into your account, but you can’t withdraw. Again, all winnings from bonus money is attached to wagering requirements, which could be 3 times or more in some cases, so to get that €50 jackpot out, you’d have to play €150 of your own money.

Then you have Bingo Bonuses that work in pretty much the same way. Basically, the site will give players ‘free money’ to test out all the games before they start playing. However, like the free games, you cannot just withdraw any winnings from these bonuses, as again there can be quite a large wagering requirement attached.

So although you’re unlikely to cash out any massive bingo wins when playing a free bingo round, or using a bingo bonus, you do get a chance to play the games. You get the chance to try them out and see what ones are best.

Poker Free Rolls

Free rolls are where you get to play games, such as Poker, for free. Offering free rolls are not only the best way for casinos to get new players, but a great way for a player to ‘try before they buy’.

Free rolls are often given away as an incentive to join their casino, and they are often given after you have deposited a certain amount in your account. However, in many top poker sites, you can benefit from No Deposit Free Rolls as a sign up bonus.

These no deposit free rolls are pretty easy to claim. Generally, all you need to do is sign up and log into your account, and the free rolls will be there waiting for you. As the poker market in general becomes more and more competitive, the chances of you finding no deposit free roll offers are getting higher.

Withdrawing winnings from free rolls can get a little tricky. Different casinos have different terms and conditions for cashing out. A few are straight forward – whatever you win you cash out. However, that is quite a rare scenario. Some online poker sites have a minimum amount you can cash out – for example, €25. If you win €10 all you can do is play it. Then there are other sites that require you to make a deposit before you can cash out your winnings, this could be any amount. So although they may have been no deposit to play, they require a deposit to get your winnings. Some will have a wagering or bonus requirement attached to them – which is pretty standard.

Like most free money or free game offers, general you can play for free, but you usually can’t win something for nothing.
