The cheapest ways of playing slots

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As you might have heard, there’s no such thing as a “free lunch” – or is there? If playing on casinos for the past decade or so has taught us anything, it’s that there actually is a valid way of playing completely for free – if you just know where to look. The most common ways of playing for free are:

  • Free spins
  • Deposit bonuses
  • Welcome offers (requires a deposit usually)

If you are a new player, you might be a bit suspicious towards this so called “free money” and that’s a good thing. Usually when casino’s give out free spins or any other form of free money, it comes with some strings attached to it. These strings are usually called “wagering requirements” which means you need to play X-amount before you can withdraw your possible winnings. 

Completing wagering requirements doesn’t mean you have to deposit in order to play the given amount, it just means that you need to wager that amount on the games. So if you play slots with 1€, win 2€, spin the wheel twice again, you’ve now wagered already 3€ from the total amount needed to complete the bonus / free spins / free money. Quite simple to be honest with you!

Where to look?

Finding good bonuses and free money offers isn’t that hard. You should focus mainly on browsing through different affiliate sites that usually have some exclusive bonus offers available. These bonuses are usually given for the first time you open the account. 

Make sure you’ll read and understand terms and conditions before you play with bonuses, as casinos are pretty fast to forfeit your bonuses if you happen to break their T&C’s. 

Big wins guaranteed?

While big wins obviously are not a guarantee for every spin, the chance of winning big with a single bet of €1 or even a few cent, is what makes slots a thrilling form of gambling. One of the more notorious slots, Mega Moolah – a game produced by Microgaming, paid out over €14 Million back in 2020. This lucky winner broke the precious record of this slot machine with almost twice as much.
