Reading Time: 4 minutes


Every online casino you stumble upon has free spins and offers to lure new clients into investing a truckload of money on their website. Everyone loves the idea of making a fortune by simply playing a good game of poker or roulette on your PC or mobile phone. However, free spins are more than simply having a stroke of luck; they are calculated promotional strategies aiming to increase their business. Free spins require no deposit fee, all you need is to create an account, register, and bam – you’re done. Here are a few simple tips that every casino lover needs to know.

Different Types of Free Spins

Before we move on to the intricacies of free spins, let’s get over with the basics. There are three fundamental types of free spins that gamblers can access across online casinos.

The free spin deposit bonus comes as a part of the periodical bonus offers. They usually have a high wagering amount and have equally challenging requirements. Check the features and factors of the offer before you make a choice.

The second type, the no deposit free spins are free and often used as a promotional strategy that is most popular amongst casino visitors. The sign-ups are free; however, you might be required to pay a minimum amount when it comes to making a withdrawal.

The final type requires you to pay a fee, you can avail extra free spin though.

Know more about free spins; check out this no deposit free spins list.

Online Casino Bonus and Free Spins

Free spins and bonuses have tempted gamblers from around the world into playing with their money and placing bets. However, online casinos are not as random as one deems them to be.

Free spins can either be part of a promotional scheme or given away as a bonus round to players who have invested a considerable amount and reached a specific level in their game. To access the no deposit free spin you have to create an account, set the amount and you can use it whenever you log in.

Some virtual casinos have the option where the client has to pay a nominal fee to play the free spin. You also have to see whether the winnings from the spin or bonus round are cashable or not. It would be a waste if your earnings were added to your account but couldn’t be withdrawn upon request.

Win Real Money with Virtual Spins

Yes, you read that right. Even if you’re playing on the virtual platform and there’s no real money involved, you can earn some real cash and quickly too. Any winnings that you earn from the spins are added to your balance. What’s more, this amount is cashable- you can withdraw the money anytime you want. Some platforms, however, give you the benefits but do not allow users to access it completely. There is a chance these offers might come with some wagering requirements. These requirements are varied and depend on factors like turnover and spin through. This means you need to spin a set number of times before you get a free spin. It can go from anywhere between 0-30, the lower the number the better it is. There are plenty of other offers other than free spins playthroughs and maximum cash-outs that can get you some quick money.

Advantages of a No Deposit Bonus

Free spins are a win-win situation for everyone who tries it out. Let’s put it this way. Free spins are free, they cost you nothing, there is no risk involved and all the chances of hitting a jackpot! If that’s not lady luck smiling down upon you, we don’t know what is.

You can win quite a bit of money in a matter of mere seconds by taking advantage of the free bonus spins offered to you. All you need is to register with the casino, create an account, pick a game and spin away. Moreover, if it’s truly your lucky day, you might make millions from a single spin while sitting in comfy PJs in your home.

That’s the dream right? Listed below are a few benefits of casino free spins and reasons why you should definitely try them out.

  • You can avail free spins in more than one game from a single casino on a single account and get to keep the profits.
  • You can play with real money without the obligation to pay a dime if things don’t turn out your way
  • Free spins are almost always without any additional conditions attached, they’re transparent and there purely for expanding the business by offering guests tempting offers they just cannot resist.

Some disadvantages:

  • Oftentimes, you have to reach a certain spin or time limit to get a free bonus spin
  • Most free spins are waged on the lowest coins
  • Sometimes even the slot choices are limited

The Bottom Line

Online casinos are the best and the easiest ways to make some quick cash if you have the brains and the patience for it. It’s not sheer dumb luck that earns you a fortune; a good gamble also requires meticulous thinking and in-depth planning. You need to think through every decision you’re about to take, think about the consequences and its effect on your game. Free spins and online bonus rounds give you the golden opportunity to make money with minimum risks involved.

Reading Time: 2 minutes


The National Casino Forum, which represents all the UK’s land-based operators, has launched a new initiative to promote diversity and inclusion in the casino sector.

DICE (Diversity and Inclusion for Career Enhancement) is a new seven-member board, whose role will be to create greater awareness within the industry of the issue and to help operators combat unconscious bias in recruitment, retention and promotion.

DICE will begin by collating data from the casino sector to assess the current employment landscape and whether operators are recruiting inclusively. It will also look at career opportunities for women and members of the BAME community within the sector and representation at management and senior management level.

DICE will provide strategic leadership to develop and implement diversity and inclusion programs, leading engagement within the casino sector to advise on best practice and support operators in promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion in the UK casino sector. It will identify any potential barriers which are preventing them from doing this and develop initiatives to overcome them.

The board will map progress made by the casino sector, consulting with industry leaders on any help they might need to promote best practice in their businesses and sponsoring further research into any obstacles which are preventing the casino sector from offering equal opportunities to all.

Two well-attended industry workshops have already taken place, the most recent being in September, which was designed for middle management to address the issue of unconscious bias in the workplace.

Chaired by Tracey Stevenson, General Manager Compliance and Integrity at Crown London Aspinalls, the other board members are: Mike Rothwell, Managing Director, Caesars Entertainment EMEA; Marieanne Carmody-Weir, Head of Regulatory Compliance and Audit, Aspers UK; David Livermore, Compliance and Security Director, Les Ambassadeurs; Alison Sullivan, General Manager, Park Tower – Grosvenor; David Smith, Gaming Director, The Hippodrome Casino and Tracy Damestani, CEO National Casino Forum.

Tracey Stevenson, chair of DICE, said:
“The UK’s casinos are great places to work and offer fantastic career opportunities. We want them to become known as equal opportunities employers, where everyone has the chance to progress their career, regardless of gender or ethnicity. We want casinos to reflect the communities in which they operate, not just on the gaming floor but at boardroom level too.

“DICE can help advise operators on how to hire inclusively and to understand what training and awareness is needed for staff at all levels. We will promote a positive vision of the casino sector, which will enhance how we recruit, retain and inspire our employees”.


The National Casino Forum represents the UK’s land-based casino operators. It promotes a well-regulated, socially responsible and commercially successful casino industry. Its vision is to make the UK the most attractive destination in the world for casino gaming.

Casinos are an integral part of the UK’s entertainment, hospitality and leisure sector. Operators are committed to caring for their customers and giving the public, the government and the regulator confidence in the way they conduct business.
The NCF’s role is to encourage and highlight best practice in the industry. Its runs forums to promote innovation and promote the safe gambling agenda.
