The Various Types of Free Spins



Casino players have plenty of promos to consider, from bonus cash to deposit matching. But if you're wondering about the types of free spins available, we've outlined some of the basics below.

No Deposit Free Spins



One of the best ways for new players and those on a tight budget to enjoy slots is with no deposit offers. As it sounds, these don't require a single penny to be put into an account, and you can play for real cash prizes. Such offers are typically worth about $30 or so (it can vary a bit), and you'll be able to find plenty of these and other promotions on review sites. They tend to be tied to a specific slots game. There will be some restrictions too, as outlined below.

Deposit Matching Free Spins



Another common type of bonus is to pair up free spins with deposit matching. This latter bonus sees the casino match (often at 100% but it can be more or less) the first deposit(s) a player puts into their account. Normally it's just for the initial deposit but some offers apply to multiple instances. The slots promo is, once again, usually worth about $30, give or take.

Loyalty Programme Rewards



The two previous bonuses are primarily aimed at new players at a casino, but the loyalty programme is there to reward existing players and to foster loyalty (hence the name) to a particular site. Very simply, points are earned every time a bet is made. Get enough points, and you can exchange them for casino chips to use as you like. On top of this, you may get other prizes, if you're lucky, such as winning cash draws, or receive a fancy vacation or top class sports tickets. Best of all, joining such programmes (if available) is automatic and with zero cost so there's only an upside as far as players go.

Restrictions



Players should be aware that bonuses do come with certain limitations. The withdrawal cap is an upper limit on the amount that players can withdraw and usually comes in at a couple of hundred dollars. There's also the wagering requirement, which is the total sum that must be wagered before any withdrawals can be made. When picking an offer, look for a high withdrawal cap and a low wagering requirement.

In-Game Bonuses



It's also worth noting that plenty of slots feature free spins as part of the game, so you could double up by going for a bonus that's attached to a game featuring them.

That just about covers it as far as the differing types of free spins go. There are lots of promotions out there, so be sure to give the market a good look before picking the one(s) you want.
