Not all mobile casinos are created equal. The same can be said of new player promotions. One thing avid player have probably noticed is that some of the most popular operators give out free spin bonuses to all their new players, without even requiring a deposit first.
I’ve heard the same, simple question countless times – Why?
Why would mobile casinos allow players to win real money without risking a single dollar if their own? Isn’t that counterproductive to their bottom line?
Perhaps, yes. A player who gets lucky enough could definitely collect on that bonus without losing any money to the casino. But when you think about it, free spin bonuses aren’t just a way to get new players in, they are essential to building a dependable and trusting relationship with clientele.
Imagine you’re going car shopping. You find one car you really like. It’s the right color, the right size, and the right price. You turn to the smiling salesman and say, “Hey, I like this one. Can I take it for a test drive?”
His smile quickly fades as he clears his throat and responds, “No, sorry, we don’t do test drives.”
Would you buy a car from him? I certainly hope not. Car salesmen can’t be trusted to begin with. Refusing a test drive would shatter any faith you might have had in him.
How about a night out at the movies. Do you go to the cinema and hope they have a movie you’re interested in seeing? Or do you just happen to see previews for movies on TV and think, “Hey, that looks good. I want to see that.” Then you go to the movies because you know it’s playing.
And how about all those free trial offers we see advertised? Free trials are very common in today’s commercial realm. We get free trial offers for all sorts of things, like Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu – even Viagra!
Test drives, movie previews and free trial offers are no different from free spin bonuses. They give players a little preview of what mobile casinos have to offer. Of course, you can’t win money during test drives and free trials, but hey – that’s what gambling is all about. If operators expect their players to take a risk on them, why shouldn’t the operator take a little risk of their own to draw in customers?
And as for the next obvious question – Can a player actually withdrawal their winnings from free spin bonuses? – that all depends on the fine print. A lot of mobile casinos say, ‘No’. It’s only a test run, and players can’t keep the winnings. But that’s not true of every operator.
A few sites do allow their players to win real money from free spins and withdrawal it. LeoVegas and Royal Vegas are two such operators, and I’m sure there are a few more out there as well. It’s all in the details, though. So long as you read over the terms of any free spin bonuses you find, you’ll know which ones are worth taking advantage of, and which ones are nothing but gimmicks.
