What Welcome Offers Are There For New Players?

Bonuses form a big part of online slot, casino and bingo play. As a new player you may receive a no deposit bonus just for registering. More likely a reward is offer for making a first deposit. Beyond this many brands will offer rewards for further deposits (reloads), regular play and hitting various targets. Sometimes these offers can be a little bit confusing, so below you’ll find links and a simple explanation about the various offers you can find.

The most important part of all these offers are the terms. Look anywhere on Spins and you’ll find text along the lines of “New players only, £10 minimum deposit, x40 wagering terms”. This may seem a bit strange but these terms are important. They’re required by The UKGC, who have been working hard to improve clarity and fairness for players.

1. No Deposit Bonus

Sign up to a slot or casino site and give it a spin without making a deposit. A no deposit bonus can be a fixed amount of bonus money (£5, £10) or a number of turns on a selected game. Most sites that offer a no deposit bonus will require you to register and confirm your details. You may even be required to enter credit/debit card details.

2. Free Spins

Free spins are essentially free plays on a selected slot. These spins may be awarded for making a deposit or reaching a certain VIP level. It should be noted that some free spins will pay out in cash (no wagering turns) whilst others are paid as a bonus (wagering terms apply).

3. Slot Sites With No Wagering Terms

When you receive a bonus it may come with a wagering term. This is the amount of wagering you need to play before you can withdraw winnings. Some sites now have wager free terms. This means that any wins from free spins or bonuses are paid out as cash and can be withdrawn without any penalties.

4. New Slot Sites

The best places to get a bonus are brand new slot sites. These usually have exciting promotions and offers to encourage newbies. The problem with new slot brands and/or casinos is that it’s often hard to find anything unique and new. This is because many brands launch on a well established network such as Jumpman, Nektan and Dragonfish.

5. Welcome Offers

Away from bonus spins and free spins, som sites still favour offering a welcome bonus. It may be a percentage bonus (e.g. 100%) or a fixed amount (£20). In most cases you’ll need to make a minimum deposit and wagering terms will apply.
