When you think of gambling, you sure do not think about free; in fact, most people associate gambling with money and debt. While it is true that most casinos (real or online) are not free, requiring you to deposit money or purchase chips, there are a number of different casinos online that offer bonuses, free trials and other sort of promotions in order to attract your business. This type of casino is widely known as a “no-deposit” casino. Newcomers to the online casino world are often skeptical about entering their credit card information online, but with a no-deposit casino, they do not have to worry about anything because no money is involved; not yet anyways.
No-deposit casinos eventually expect you to deposit money at some point, but they use the free bonuses and free trials to attract you to the casino. An easy way to look at the situation is that the casino has just given you some play money that you can use in their online facilities. However, this play money can be used to potentially win real money; just as if you had deposited and gambled your own money.
One search on the Internet will bring up literally hundreds of different online casinos. There are several online that do not offer any form of bonus, free trial or no-deposit type deal. The main reason that these websites do not offer a no-deposit offer to its new visitors is because they get enough business as it is, not seeing the need to lure in new visitors with a no-deposit offer. Regardless of that fact, there are still a multitude of online casinos that do a lot of their business based on their no-deposit bonuses. If an online casino is new, then it will most likely offer some sort of bonus in order to increase the amount of business it gets.
Sometimes, if you were to win any real money with the no-deposit bonus, a casino will not let you withdraw your money. However, that does not mean that the money cannot be accessed. It basically means that the money you won using the bonus can only be used after your no-deposit time or free play is over. While that does not sound appealing as appealing as simply withdrawing the money, the winnings can still be put back into play to win more money; only this time, the money can be withdrawn.
