No Deposit Bonus Terms and Conditions Explained
If you claim a no deposit bonus, you have to be aware of several bonus rules. Please do not neglect these rules. Any breach of them may result in your bonus being invalidated.
For the most part, these rules are very easy to follow. And understanding them will help you to determine which bonus is the most valuable.
Here is an overview of the most common no deposit bonus rules you must follow:
In many ways, this is the most important rule. If you are going to win real money, you have to fulfil your wagering requirements. You can do this by wagering the value of your bonus a number of times.
Until you fulfil your wagering requirements, you will not be able to withdraw your winnings as real money.
If this seems confusing, we can help by providing you with an example of how it works:
Let's say you claim the current 50 no deposit free spins bonus available at Jackpot City Casino. This bonus comes with wagering requirements set at 50x.
If you use your 50 free spins and you win $10, you can work out the sum-total you have to wager using the following equation:
Value of Bonus ($10) x Wagering Requirements (50) = Sum-total ($500)
To summarise, if you were to win real money using this bonus money now, you would have to wager $500 in bonus credits.

A winnings cap (or max cashout) limits the amount you can withdraw as real money using a no deposit casino bonus or bonus. Casinos include this clause to ensure that they do not lose more they can afford by offering players a free trial.
We advertise the winnings cap of all our bonuses so you can decide which is best for you. We recommend that you claim a no deposit bonus with the highest bonus winnings amount cap. That way, you will be able to win more real money for free.
A no deposit bonus’ bet limits stipulate the maximum and minimum you can wager using your free spins or bonus credits. For free spins bonuses, this bet limit is pre-set at the minimum possible bet. For bonus credits, you have to be aware not to exceed the maximum bet limit, usually set at around $5 for every single bet.
The purpose of bet limits is to restrict the amount you can win for every single spin. Without bet limits, players could make a single bet, win a huge jackpot, and fulfil their wagering requirements instantly. We recommend that you claim a no deposit bonus with the highest possible bet limit.
When you claim a no deposit bonus, you are limited to playing on a single game, or a selection of eligible games. Spending your bonus credits or free spins on an ineligible game may result in your free bonus money being invalidated. We recommend that you check which games are eligible before you claim.
Games with high RTP’s or high volatility are likely to be excluded. But not to worry. If you want to play high RTP pokies for free, you can! Please visit our play free pokies page to see our catalogue of pokies available in free-play mode.
Every game you play with a no deposit bonus contributes to your wagering requirements. For example, pokies tend to contribute 100% of your winnings towards fulfilling your wagering requirements. If you win $10 on a pokie, every cent of that $10 goes towards your wagering requirements.
However, not all online casino games contribute 100%. If you claim bonus credits and play on table games, you may find that your winnings contribute as little as 4%. Consequently, if you win $10 on blackjack online, only $0.40 of your winnings will go towards fulfilling your wagering requirements.
Top Tip: If you want to play table games, we don’t recommend claiming a no deposit bonus. It is too difficult to win real money. Rather, we recommend that you make a small deposit at one of our real money online slots and casinos.
