No deposit bonuses are offered by online/mobile casinos to entice unregistered players from across Canada and beyond to sign up and play one or more of their best quality real money games – 100% for free. As such, these are unlike traditional sign up, matching or welcome bonuses that require newly signed up players to make an initial deposit or set of deposits in order to unlock them.

As to the question of whether no deposit bonuses are worth the trouble, the answer is a resounding yes, and as proof check out these no deposit casino bonus offers at NoDepositRewards.com today.

It’s no secret that most people love the concept of getting something for nothing i.e. anything for free, no matter how big or small. Online gambling fans are no exception and online casinos know this all too well. That’s why you’ll be hard-pressed to find an online casino worth its salt these days that doesn’t offer some kind of new player bonus or two, particularly of the no deposit variety.

Just as their names yell out, no deposit bonuses require no deposit to claim – just a minute or two of your time to fill out a new casino account registration form. Once you’ve completed the form with information such as your name, country, date of birth, email address, physical address, telephone number and a password and username to use as your casino login details, you’re almost there.

There being able to sign in to your new online or mobile casino (you can use the same login details to access an online casino on your smart phone, tablet, PC or laptop), and redeem your deposit free bonus. There are three types of online casino no deposit bonuses you can claim – no deposit free spins, no deposit cash and no deposit one hour free play bonuses. Here’s an explanation of each:

No Deposit Free Spins Bonuses

Focused mainly at online slot fans, these no deposit bonuses entail a set number of free spins you can use on one or more pre-specified slot games. These free spins – which can number anywhere from 10 up to 100 – can only be used to play the listed games. The great news, however, is that to wow players casinos typically showcase their most popular, entertaining and lucrative slots.

As such, these slots are usually bright, colourful, engaging and crammed with plenty of high-paying features – just what every slot fan in Canada likes. However, free spins on a top slot is only half the attraction. The other half is that most online casinos will let you cash out your winnings or a portion thereof as long as you meet the free spins bonus wagering requirements and the other T&Cs.

Every casino bonus offer comes with terms and conditions, and free spins no deposit bonus deals are no different. These are the rules and regulations of a bonus, or the ‘dos and don’ts’ if you will. For instance, wagering requirements dictate how many times you must play through i.e. bet winnings earned from your free spins. Only once you have met these requirements can you cash out.

For instance, if a bonus wagering requirement is 25x and you earn $20 in winnings, only once you’ve made $500 in bets (25 x $20) will the casino let you cash out, and then only up to a capped amount, $100, for instance. In the example above, if you initiate a withdrawal with say $500 in your account, the casino would automatically retain $400 and only pay you the maximum permitted $100.

No Deposit Cash Bonuses

No deposit cash bonuses are highly sought out amongst Canadians that seek variety in their in casino bonus play. The reason for this is that most cash no deposit bonuses can be used to play games like slots, 7 Stud Poker, Scratch Cards, Bingo games, Pai Gow Poker and Keno, unless otherwise specified. This is in direct contrast to no deposit free spins bonuses that can only be used to play slots.

You can unlock your no deposit bonus cash by signing up for a new casino account. Depending on the online or mobile casino in question, you’ll most likely find an option to receive your bonus as part of the registration process, or you may have to contact casino support to release your free funds. Either way you won’t have to wait long to get stuck into your free real money games.

Like all other remote casino bonuses, no deposit cash bonuses come attached with various T&Cs you must adhere to if your objective is to derive the biggest benefit from the bonus. For instance, you need to ensure that you only use the bonus to play the permitted listed games or you risk having your no deposit bonus revoked along with any winnings you may have accrued up to that point.

This is why it’s crucial to read the terms and conditions of cash no deposit and all other bonuses before claiming them. While some bonus terms and conditions are more strenuous than others, if you follow them to the letter and are lucky enough to end up with some funds after you’ve met the wagering requirements, you can always withdraw them – up to the maximum specified amount.

No Deposit One Hour Free Play Bonuses

While admittedly no deposit one hour free play bonuses are not as widely available as free spins and free cash no deposit bonuses, they are still very popular amongst slot fans across the world, Canada included.  This type of bonus is something of a hybrid between a free cash and free spins bonus, with a time limit thrown in for good measure – 60 minutes typically, so you can race against the clock.

With a 1 hour free no deposit bonus, you’re usually presented with a large cash amount of between $500 and $1,500, a pre-specified classic or video slot you have to play, and one hour in which to play it. Like the other no deposit bonuses above, you are also required to register a new player account with your chosen online casino in order to unlock or redeem the particular free play bonus offer.

The best feature of these bonus offers – apart from the fact they are 100% free to claim and use as no deposit is required – is that they are pretty much always coupled with one of their respective casino’s most popular online slot games. And what better way to take an online casino and one of its most popular titles for a ‘test drive’ than by playing against the clock with real online casino cash.

When your 1 hour of free slots play is up, provided you’ve chalked up a pile of winnings and met the minimum wagering requirements in the terms and conditions, you may cash winnings out up to the maximum limit. Or, if you really like your licensed interactive gaming site you can play on using your newly acquired winnings or make an initial deposit to unlock and claim your first welcome bonus.
