CasinoBonusCA report


To test the viability of casino promotions that make millions register at online casinos, CasinoBonusCA conducted a survey with 390 participants that claimed no deposit bonuses in 2021.


The results indicate a high winning rate for this offer type as follows:

CasinoBonusCA compares winnings according to gamblers' frequency of playing

Participants were asked to approximate the number of no deposit bonuses claimed within a year, with the general winning odds being:

  • 1-5 offers: 13.75%, with cashing out odds of 6.87%
  • 6-10 offers: 11%, with cashing out odds of 5.84%
  • 11-20 offers: 10.65%, with cashing out odds of 3.44%
  • 20+ offers: 17.53%, with cashing out odds of 11.68%


According to the reviewers, the most advantaged players seem to be those in the extremes (low and high-frequency gamblers).


A maximum cashout value of $50 on average should be expected as of the currency used to conduct this survey.


Generally, viability is also determined by the strictness of the wagering requirements. Based on this survey, there is an average 25.2x wagering requirement for no deposit bonuses.

How much casino players profit from no deposit bonuses

Less than half of the survey respondents (38.92%) played with bonuses ranging from $5 to $25, +18% played $30 to $50 bonuses, and 17.41% of them played $55 to $100 bonuses.


This means that 15% of them claimed and used promotions exceeding $100 in value.


Regardless of the value, the average $50 winnings mentioned earlier are usually capped. This means that even if you exceed this sum in winnings, you cannot withdraw more.


Here are the average individual rollovers (AIR) along with their resulting profits:

  • For 1-5 offers, the AIR is $25.2 – $126, with a profit of $1-$5
  • For 6-10 offers, the AIR is $151.2 – $252, with a profit of $6-$11
  • For 11-20 offers, the AIR is $277 – $504, with a profit of $11-$20
  • For +20 offers, the AIR is +$504, with a profit of +$20
Free spins are the most encountered no deposit bonus type

Only 5% of the total no deposit bonuses aren't free spins, which has been confirmed in the survey.


To claim free spins, you're usually required to create an account on the casino platform providing the promotion.


Once this is achieved, you have to see whether the promotional T&Cs ask players to complete the KYC procedure before using the bonus. At times, not abiding by this rule may make you ineligible for withdrawing any profits you may make with these funds.

Are there additional conditions for wagering?

Wagering requirements are almost always present as well. Players are only allowed to withdraw any winnings they may obtain after betting the free spins again for a given number of times. On average, these conditions vary from 35x to 50x.


However, withdrawals may also be conditioned by other factors. For instance, promotions can only be claimed if you use specific payment methods.


Those who aren't willing to spend any money to withdraw their bonus winnings should refrain from claiming any offers advertised as having no deposit requiring an initial deposit after already having used the free spins.

Slots on which free spins with no deposit is most often played

Slots like Starburst by Netent or Book of Dead currently come with the most varied promotions in the market.


Let's see what some of the most extensive free spin offerings are:

  • 300 for the Starburst slot
  • Up to 900 for the Book of Dead slot
  • 375 for the Shining Crown slot
An analysis of the most popular games

Starburst is mainly popular due to its good RTP (96.09%) and low volatility. The latter means that, while your winnings may not reach high sums, they will be more frequent than in other slots.


This is a trait sought after mainly by low-stake bettors, who also choose the Book of Dead based on this criterion.


The slot has a similar RTP to that of Starburst (96%), and its simple rules raised it to the top of the gamblers' choice list.


On the other hand, Shining Crown has a high volatility level preferred by long-time slot players and high stakes. Its relatively high RTP of 96.37% also makes it popular, as it guarantees a reasonable return.


The frequency of casino promotions

Besides the favorites, gamblers can find promotions for virtually any other slot in the market, as free spins are extremely common in online casinos. This is particularly true since many operators don't impose game range limits for their offers, so they apply them to their entire catalog.

Players have good winning odds when using free spins no deposit

Most of the CasinoBonusCA survey respondents won at least once by claiming 1 to 5 offers per year. This leaves us with a percentage of 66%, which is pleasantly surprising.


These results may differ from one slot to another, so players should look for each game's stats before choosing to use their free spins there.
