Free spins bonuses are usually offered as part of a new player bonus or, occasionally, when a new online pokie arrives in the casino. You generally receive somewhere in the region of 5 to 20 free spins and you may only be able to play on selected pokies with your free spins. You won’t be able to adjust the stake when using your free spins and you normally have to use these spins before they expire.
If you have received some kind of free spins bonus, remember to read through the bonus terms and conditions to find out which games you can actually play on. The T’s & C’s will also tell you how many times you need to wager your bonus winnings before you can cash out. For example, the free spins bonus might come with a 30x times wagering requirement.
If you happen to win $40 from your 20 free spins, you would then need to wager a total of $1,200 ($40 winnings x 30 wagering requirement) before you could cash out. As soon as the last free spin has played out, any winnings that you have made should instantly appear in your balance as available funds. Alternatively the winnings may appear as ‘bonus balance’.
After the last free spin has played out, the game will instantly switch to the real money mode and you can either adjust your stake and start playing straight away, or you can generally use those winnings to play on another pokie of your choice. If you sign out of your account, your free spins winnings will still be available when you next login (providing you don’t leave it too long before you sign back in again).
If you received 20 free spins for an online pokie, the best thing to do would be to use those free spins straight away. However, even if you only manage to play 5 of those free spins and then find that you need to leave the computer, the free spins will also be stored so that when you next login to your gaming account you can carry on from where you left off. Free spins bonuses are ideal for pokie fans, but they don’t seem to come around very often, so grab them as soon as they do become available.
Make sure that you regularly visit the promotions page at your favourite online casino to find out about the latest free spins bonuses. Also remember to check your inbox or your junk/spam box of the registered email address that you supplied the casino with when you registered a new account because some online casino operators send players free spin bonus information via email as well.
