    Default Cashing Out without Making a Deposit

    I'm not encouraging bonus hunting, but any player ever cash out without making a deposit, using a no deposit bonus?

    Although some casinos may allow a cashout without a deposit, most groups do require one, and often those that do not have a fairly low maximum cashout for no deposit bonuses.

    I have actually taken a no deposit offer a few times over the years.

    Although I normally do not take them I have had a few birthday offers and some years ago I took a few of the no deposit offers at a few Rival Casinos back when they were new.

    For us that understand the industry I think they are ok in limited use providing you understand they are really only to give the games a try and see how the interface works and get a feel for the software etc.

    I do promote the no deposit offers on a limited scale but I do try and present them in such a manner as they are intended as simple trials etc and usually try and remember to state that have very low cashout rules.

    I do recall winning a few bucks on a birthday freebie once at an RTG and couldn't cashout so I used that casino to test and play review new games on occasion.

    I had a customer on Skybet who took the 10 free no deposit and withdrew 2500 from it, wiped that month out completely. I've had others with small profits, but usually 50-100

    Think 2500 is my unlucky number as last month had someone with 2500 raffle prize on skybet which completely wiped me out too, left me a end balance of minus 34

    Never cashed-out from a no deposit offer, nor I ever expected to. I consider these bonuses as a good way of trying out some casino or games for free. It always looked to me like a trial given from an operator, in order to show you a product (and hook you up). They are free chips, but with so many strict strings attached and limits (capped winnings to €50-100, big wagering requirements and sometimes sticky character) they have never been too attractive for my taste. I prefer decent match bonus or even better playing without any bonus, over freebies.
    Used it a couple of times, had some fun trying out new games or games on my to do list, but each of them didn't last more than maximum of 30 minutes playing.

    But if casino I'm already a member of sends me some free spins as a little award or in retention purposes - I'll accept why not
    Definitely without any expectation of cashing-out, as I said.

    Oh, and I like free spins on top of welcome and match bonuses - they are nice thing to extend your session a little bit more or give a small comfort when you run out of your play balance.

    Sorry if I went too chatty, but no deposit bonuses and free spins are always an interesting topic

    Yep on a new poker site. Turned $5 into $75. I had to rake the same amount as the bonus before I could cash out.

    We are always paying players that have won on a no deposit offer as long as our terms have been met we however limit this amount to a fair Max Cash Out .. as we target a large market segment the way we get players is by offering ND Offers as we wouldn't be able to get enough players through our doors if we only had a deposit offer although the quality of player is far lower we have an open door policy and have to use the bonuses to our favor sometimes it works but we have also been hurt on these but its our model and we have to have these

    Default i personally never felt it would be fair to cash out on a free chip

    i personally never felt it would be fair to cash out on a free chip and never even did try to but the one deposit bonus i tried cashing out on , over a grand well casino royal club let it sit in the reversal area over a year and a half so i was right in thinking they depend and count on those reversals being made and the ill fact we can not resist the temptation if left there untill it paid out or sat there making them look bad in their casino ,and they gave every funky excuse except screw you we arent ever gonna pay you it justifield their illigiditimate actions but if you touch it ever but when the complainer ( finallly reverses) or eats the steak or finally so discouraged they spend the cashout after a year and a half of it not leaving the reversal area and well after the time frame stipulated by the terms and conditions of the cash out process tells me they wont and dont iongtend to pay out PERIOD EVER it was a two stage promotion that required a depiosit in the second half and i did that like i said i shoulda never touched it and bad mouthed them if i touch it i canno t bad mouth them i must work on my self discipline thats how it works or i see it and thats how they get away with not being a fraudster theif even if they blatently are raquetteering you by not paying til ya wind up playing and then in the back rooms yer a bonus abuser of little or no upbringing and lack the self discipline it takes to cash out yer basic FIEND IOS HOW YOUR PORTREYEDS behind the scenes so the casino can continue in the business as reputable when its not in fact it is the EXACT OPPISITE . but not being there to defend yerself at summits its the players fault they lack self discipline and the truth is they had no intention of ever ever paying out ive collected at golden cherry dice;land and mandarin palace whos policy is to close yerb account if you collect i still love platinum reels but they show the same shiesty tactics thats my experience take it for what it is worth ok

    why do you think that? if it was not possible to cash out when you've claimed a no deposit bonus, then what would be the point of claiming the bonus to begin with? you'd never see your winnings.
