No deposit bonuses are a great way to test drive an online casino (and its wares), without having to spend any money. Being able to play for free has its advantages and its disadvantages, both of which we will cover on this page.
Free play bonuses are popular the world over including in Austria where the federal gambling law (Glücksspielgesetz), issues licenses to genuine online gaming parlours to ensure the games, offers and promotions remain the fairest they can be. Gambling in Austria is legal.
Gambling operators do not need to be based in Austria to deliver gambling content to the country, instead, offshore companies can apply for licenses to deliver content to the region, and this includes all manner of bonuses – even free play offers such as the popular no deposit bonus, perks and fringe benefits as well as on-going loyalty perks.
The Types of No Deposit Bonuses in Austria
No deposit bonuses are just that – bonuses that are triggered without having to make a deposit and there are plenty of online casinos offering this particular offer in Austria. Typically available to new players, the offer is granted instantly upon registering. That being said, there are instances where special promotional offers see existing players receive no deposit bonuses too. Seasoned casino-goers should log in regularly to see what offers and free bonuses may be available to them.
- The Welcome Offer: New customers are eligible for this particular offer, and only once sign-up is complete will the bonus be credited.
- Promotional Offer: Available to both new and existing players, the offer is generally credited once the player logs in (registers) and clicks to claim (or opt-in), and could come in the form of bonus spins, a bonus sum or free tournament
Be mindful of any codes that may be needed. Should a casino promo code be required and you fail to add it, the offer will not be credited.
Bonus spins just happen to be the most common form of no deposit bonus in Austria, with a bundle of spins credited to a specific slot game. They may be awarded in full or over consecutive days, on one game or many. This type of offer only allows the player to test a specific game (or handful of games). What games can you play your no deposit spins on? You could get to play top NetEnt slots, Microgaming releases or maybe even titles powered by Betsoft. Whatever game you play, it guarantees to be fun, packed full of bonus features and from an industry leader in its field.
The no deposit bonus credit option delivers a bonus sum into the bankroll of the player, without having to spend any cash. Bonus credit can be used across the entire casino (with the exception of some progressive jackpot slots and/or live casino games), enabling the player to get an insight into more than just the odd slot or three. Bonus credit cannot be withdrawn.
Factors to take into account with any no deposit bonus is wagering. Before deciding on the best offer for you, ask yourself:
- How many times does the bonus have to be turned over before the player can cash out? Wagering above 30x is deemed high.
- Are there maximum win limits on the bonus spins?
- Is there a maximum conversion limit?
Of the two bonuses – the no deposit spins and the no deposit bonus credit, the former generally has the highest wagering terms, but there are a handful of gaming parlours where there are no wagering requirements and no maximum win limits, but these instances are rare.
