Free spins are free spins on slots that online casinos distribute, either to attract new players to the casino, or to reward existing players or celebrate the launch of a new slot. Anyone in search of free spins should subscribe to the various casinos newsletters, where free spins offers are often sent out, even if they are not published on the site itself.
Different types of free spins
As we mentioned above, there are a few different kinds of free spins that you as a player can encounter. Partly those that are really free, that is, those that are given as gifts to existing players or new players, and partly those that are included as a reward in the game itself. Below we present the different types and how they usually work.
Free spins as welcome offer
This is about free spins that the casino gives to newly registered players, sometimes only after they have made a first deposit money. When you deposit, you will also have the opportunity to receive a welcome bonus. Then you go to the specified slot and play your spins. If you were to win money on your free spins then the winnings usually have to be wagered a certain number of times before you can withdraw the winnings in cash. Then there are casinos where any winnings go straight into your gaming account as money.
Free spins to existing customers Sometimes the casinos reward their existing players with free spins on one of their slots. These free spins can be part of a promotion and apply to all players, but you can also get personal free spins via email. The same terms of sale generally apply as those described above. Nevertheless, this kind of free spins has actually resulted in one of the casino’s biggest jackpot winnings. A Norwegian student won SEK 109 million in the summer of 2011 after using his free spins on the progressive jackpot Megah Moolah.
