Microgaming No Deposit Sign-up Bonus

Most sign-up bonuses offered by online casinos require players to first make a deposit. The casino then offers a bonus that is related to the amount of the deposit. Some online casinos offer small no deposit sign-up bonuses of about $10 in order to get the players started. But most Microgaming casinos now offer a sign-up bonus that is substantial and that does not require a deposit.

This deposit goes by various names such as 'no deposit bonus', 'free play bonus' and 'free spin bonus'. The player is required to download the software and register with the online casino. He is then given $500 to wager in a time of one hour. ($500 is the amount most Microgaming casinos give, though some casinos may give different amounts.) Whatever the player wins, subject to certain conditions, is his. If the player loses part or whole of the $500 he has not lost his money.

One of the important conditions is that the player must place at least 100 bets in the given time. If he does not do so then he will have to surrender his winnings. If the player has completed 100 bets and is winning then he can surrender the remaining time and will be entitled to keep the winnings. Many Microgaming casinos offer $500 as free play bonus but require player to win at least $20. This implies that the players can retain their winnings that are in excess of $20.

The time of one hour is sacrosanct. As soon as the player activates the bonus a miniature casino appears on the screen and the timer starts. The timer runs even if the player is disconnected. As soon as the hour is up the miniature casino disappears from the screen. Players with dial up or slow connections to the Internet should not try for this 'no deposit bonus' because they will not be able to complete the required 100 wagers.

Some Microgaming casinos offer only one game for the no deposit bonus. All the wagering has to be done on this game only. This game usually is a new game that the online casino is trying to promote. Other casinos offer a range of games. This has an advantage as well as a disadvantage. The advantage is that the player can switch games if he is getting bored or is unlucky. The disadvantage is that the time lost in changing games is to the player's account. Usually the games offered are online slots games and therefore this bonus is also called free spin bonus because it gives the player 100 free spins.

Wagering requirements as applicable to normal bonuses also apply to the no deposit bonus. These requirements are usually different in each online casino.
