5 Ways to Fund Your Online Casino Account for Free
Some people want to play at online casinos, but they are leery of making an online casino deposit. They are worried that their personal information will be stolen or their credit card or bank account hacked.
Fortunately, there are alternative ways to fund your online casino account without making a deposit. Today we give you 5 ways to fund your online casino account for free.
No Deposit Casino Bonuses
On occasion, online casinos in Australia will offer no deposit bonus promotions. These offers are generally for new players but sometimes are offered to existing players. For new players, you may get a small amount of casino cash or free spins to register for a new account. Common amounts are $5 to $10 in casino cash and up to 25 free spins.
For existing players, no deposit bonuses are generally offered as free spins for new games. For example, a casino may offer 10 free spins to try Cash Bandits 3 or other select online pokies. Uptown Pokies offers these no deposit bonuses on occasions, so keep an eye on their promotions page.
If you frequent Bitcoin casinos, then you will want to keep an eye out for Bitcoin faucets. These faucets give you small amounts of Bitcoin that you can use to play at the casino. The amount is generally small and you will have to get very lucky to win anything substantial.
Often, these faucets will only allow you to claim funds when your balance is at 0 or when it is below a certain amount. You will also be limited to how many times you can claim per day. Faucets are not a way to build a big bankroll but they can get you started or give you enough to test drive a new BTC casino.
Freeroll Poker Tournaments
One of the most common ways that online poker players build a bankroll from zero is through freeroll poker tournaments. These events allow you to play in a real money online poker tournament for free. However, the cash prizes are generally only for the top 1 to 2% of the field.
You may have to battle through 5,000 players to get to a top 50 payout. Even then, the amount will not be much. It may be as little as .05. The top prize is generally in the neighborhood of $5 to $10. However, the money can be used to play in other real money poker cash games and tournaments.
Note that some freerolls offer rebuys. These events may offer larger prizes and pay more players. However, they are still just as tough to navigate.
Pokies tournaments are similar to online poker tournaments, but instead, you are trying to get a top score on a particular online pokie. Some casinos will offer free entries to a pokies tournament for new or existing players. Generally, players will get a single entry into these tournaments.
To be honest, this is generally a longshot way to build a bankroll as you will have to get extremely lucky to get a top score in a single entry. Most pokies tournaments are won by players who enter multiple times. However, there’s always a chance to get lucky so we’ve included this in our list.
The final item on our list is an alternative deposit option offered at online casinos. Some casinos will accept gift cards from major retailers in exchange for a cash deposit. If you have a department store or gas station gift card with funds on it, you can exchange that for cash into your online casino account.
If you have some gift cards lying around that you do not use or don’t see using anytime soon, this could be a good way to fund your account without taking money out of your pocket. Check with customer service to see which gift cards they accept before attempting to make a deposit with gift cards.
