As a casual player, I join new online casinos from time to time and often accept their welcome offers related to the first deposit (or the first few deposits). However, I ignored the no deposit bonuses for a long time because I thought they didn't deserve my attention. Since I was working on an article related to these offers, I decided to take advantage of a few offers shared on GoodLuckMate and, rather than guess, see realistically what can be expected from them.
My journey started with Kajot, an online casino with an interesting offer. Namely, players can choose whether they want to use 5 euros or 50 free spins after completing the registration.
By the way, the registration process was simple and fast. It's worth mentioning that I had to share my phone number, on which I received a code, in order to complete the registration.
I decided to go with the 50 free spins offer. As expected, I received spins of low value (0.10 euro). The casino gave me a choice of a dozen games of its own production. Yes, for those who don't know, it's worth mentioning that Kajot is not only a casino but also a software provider with many years of experience and several dozen slots in its portfolio.
From what I noticed, although there was detailed information about each game, I couldn't see what their RTP was. If I had known, I would have tried my luck with one with a higher RTP than the rest. That's why I decided to play a title with an exciting theme - Dragon Hunt. When I opened it, I got 70 instead of 50 free spins. Of course, that came as an unexpected but appreciated bonus.
The game was highly volatile as the prizes were high but infrequent. My session of 70 spins (each worth 0.10 euro) ended up with 10.7 euro in my account. I'd say it's more than just a success, especially since I didn't invest anything. However, let's not forget that there is a wagering requirement of 25x that you have to meet before you can withdraw your winnings. This is a reasonable request.
Overall, I am satisfied with the experience with Kajot Casino and their no deposit bonus of 50 (or rather 70) free spins.
Second on my no deposit bonus testing list was Magical Spin. I liked this casino site because of the interesting theme (medieval magic and fantasy) and the solid selection of games. I wasn't limited to choosing games from just one provider this time. In fact, there were dozens of games from the most famous providers.
Before I say how I used the bonus, I should mention that, unlike Kajot Casino, here I had to log into my account, go to my profile, select overview, and enter the special code (GLM10) in the Claim Code field. After that, I got 10 euros. As for the registration, it was a regular one, and I had to share my phone number again for verification purposes during the procedure.
Although I could've chosen one of the hundreds of games, I settled on the Chilli Heat slot from Pragmatic Play for two reasons. The first reason is that this is a title with a high RTP of 96.5% and medium volatility. Second, I always liked Pragmatic Play's modern games.
I had to choose my bet value of 0.50 euros (I wanted lower to get more spins and enjoy the game) because that was the minimum amount I could use with the bonus money.
The decision to choose this game was the right one. I started with 10 euros and ended up with 37.4 euros after 20 spins. I activated the super exciting re-spins round twice, which brought me 16.5 and 19.5 euros, respectively. The other gains were relatively low. Of course, my work was not done yet, as this bonus also comes with a wagering requirement to be met before I can cash out my winnings. This wagering requirement is 60x. With a bit of luck, like in the first session, I should be able to expect some profit at the end.
In 21 Casino, I found a symbolic no deposit offer. Although you may not notice it because it is placed together with the Welcome Offer that requires a deposit, it is there. It's about 21 completely free spins that you can use on one of the most popular slots of all time - Book of Dead by Play'n GO.
Obviously, sharing a phone number must happen when you want to take advantage of an offer like this, and 21 Casino is no exception to this rule. But unlike other sites, there was no need to confirm the phone number or email address using a link or code.
After signing up, all that needs to be done is to find the Book of Dead game. After it opens, you will see a pop-up window congratulating you on the 21 spins worth 0.10 euros (2.1 euros in total). The game is really interesting. It has nice graphics and a timeless theme.
But what made my experience unforgettable was the activation of 10 free spins during my first session. They brought me 0.75 euros, which isn't much, but it was fun to watch the animations. Immediately after that, I got 1 euro in one spin in the base game. After using all 21 spins, I had 2.7 euros in my account. It's the lowest score on my tests, but money won for nothing is still money. On the other hand, the wagering requirement is 35x, which is relatively low.
So, what can be concluded after this adventure of mine? Undoubtedly, using the no deposit bonuses that we share here at GoodLuckMate is an exciting activity. All you can lose is your time, and you can almost always expect a profit when you use free spins or bets. The wagering requirements are not exceptionally high compared to regular deposit bonuses.
I had the best luck with the bonus that offered the fewest spins and played the game with the highest RTP. Of course, luck is crucial here, but these values are worth checking out. I advise you to test several of these no deposit bonuses and draw your own conclusion. All you need is extra time and a need for exciting moments. If I have time, I will next write about my experience with fulfilling the wagering requirements.
