Free Gambling Chips are exactly what they say they are, and if you know how to utilise them properly you can make yourself some real cash, but there are also pitfalls that you need to avoid to ensure you aren’t one of the lucky few who win big and then can’t get your hands on your winnings.
Take a look through our 5 key tips below;
Find Somewhere great to Play!
There are stacks of offers available on this website, try lots of them. Do not deposit any money until you have found somewhere that you enjoy playing at, experiment with lots of different games.
If you are playing Online Casinos, be sure to check out at least one of the offers for each platform or software provider, especially Microgaming, Realtime Gaming, Playtech and Rival Gaming. You can use the search box above to find plenty of each type.
Experiment with each of these and find the one that feels right for you. Check out lots of different games, make sure you play at least a few types of Online Video Slots, Online Video Pokers and Table Games.
Abide by the Terms & Conditions!
All offers have terms and conditions associated with them, read them, understand them and abide by them. If you are lucky enough to hit that big win, you do now want to be in breach of terms and then end up being refused your cash.
The main buzz word to look out for is “Playthrough Requirements” – A typical term may say something like “In the interest of fair gaming, you must wager at least 10 times the bonus amount before making any cash outs” This simply means that in order to withdrawal any money you must gamble atleast 10x the original bonus. For example if you are given £25 free you need to make £250 worth of bets before making a withdrawal. Obviously you are not going to manage to do this every time you play a free bonus, but occasionally you will hit that big win in the first couple of games and the playthrough requirement will be easily met after that point. At this point you may make a withdrawal in confidence that you will be able to receive your winnings.
You should also look out for terms such as “You must make a minimum deposit of £20 before making a withdrawal on your free bonus” This is normally only done as a precaution and allows the casino to validate your details (via your credit card or other payment method) to ensure you are not abusing the bonus by opening multiple accounts.
Beware of Progressive Jackpots
Progressive Jackpots are where the big money is, but these too have terms and conditions attached. Primarily they are meant for real money players who play with their own money. Some Casinos will not pay you the progressive jackpot if you win using money they have given to you for free. Make sure you check the terms and condition carefully if you wish to play a Progressive Jackpot with free Money.
Make sure you are Eligible to Play!
Another thing to ensure is that you are legally eligible to play. All offers listed on this site are intended for UK visitors, but we get thousands of visitors from all over the world. Ensure you reside in a country that is allowed to play and allows you to take the bonus. Due to certain countries abusing offers more frequently occasionally they will be restricted from playing.
Make sure you are old enough to gamble! You need to be at least 18 years of age in the UK, although many other countries require you to be at least 21.
