With the fast uprising of the internet gambling phenomena, many different casino-based websites are trying to lure in as many paying customers as they can get, usually offering incentives such as free plays on their sites. But are these casinos really free?
Essentially, if you find yourself visiting one of these sites, you will more-often-than-not see a flashy banner, link, or advertisement promising free plays to new registered users, somewhere on the main page. Once you click one of these links, you’re promptly asked to register with your name, email address and other details.
Shortly after you complete this, you’re email inbox will periodically be bombarded with emails from several other casino websites offering you the same deals, i.e. free plays on registration. To someone who isn’t internet savvy, this could result in several website memberships, and still no free plays.
With proper research on the internet, you will find a few reliable sites that do offer free plays, and actually honour their promises. However, in order to receive your “free” plays, you are usually required to provide some form of payment details to the website, such as paypal, credit card information, or bank account information.
Then you will be required to deposit an amount of your own money into your account on the casino’s website. The minimum amount depends and varies from site to site.
