If you have read my previous articles on bonuses, you should have a pretty decent idea about these little casino gaming spark-ups. Now, one question I see around, on forums and whatnot, regarding these is why can people not win (big) with no-deposit bonuses, or why can they not cash it out fully, and other similar queries. It is fairly easy to answer, though I can see why some might get confused.
Sometimes, catchy images and text might get you overly excited, in turn causing you to lose sight of a few important details. Not all bonuses work the same, some will only have a functional status and not end up in the sum won, if you are fortunate to strike it lucky and trigger a win. No-deposit bonuses are part of these, but not always identifying among the non-cashable kind. And it should be expected, more or less – after all, you are not being given much, if any conditions, so it should be quite obvious that what you are given as a no-deposit is meant to aid you play, kind of like a jump-start on your playing bank. Of course, you can then proceed to play and maybe get blessed by the gods of luck, case in which you should be able to have some of it cashed out, at least (depending on the other factors).
My small piece of advice would be to just enjoy and use these rather for fun and for the purpose of getting accustomed to certain games’ mechanics and stuff like that. Do not expect to hit the house jackpot and leave the casino’s vault depleted, it is not going to happen all this easily.
Therefore, the answer is that you can actually win with no-deposit bonuses, but keep an eye on the surrounding notes and terms when you decide to stop and reap the spoils of your session. Sure, nobody said that gamblers should never dream of hitting the big pot. Just be realistic; as it is said, if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is. There would be no luster in it if anyone could win with that kind of ease. Use these to build up, get familiar and train yourself further, and when you find yourself in real high-stake battles, that is when the adrenaline rush starts to rightfully pump in.
