Why Play Casino Games for Free?

There are many reasons why you might want to look for free to play casino games, be they free slot games (the most popular option) or free games of another nature, like table games, etc.

The best reason is probably simply that you have one less thing to worry about when playing.

Also, since you don’t have to put cash down to play, you can play for as long as you like.

And, of course, you don’t have to risk your hard-earned funds to participate in the online casino experience.

Many people even find that they don’t need to risk real cash to experience the level of visceral thrill they are looking for in a casino experience.

Another great reason is that since you don’t need to give up any personal data to play free casino games, your session is completely private.

Of course, your confidential data is very safe with online casinos, but still, some people prefer not to enter any personal data at all.

No account casinos are becoming more popular.

These allow for the use of real money without the casino having any access to your data.

Some may consider this the best of both worlds. Finally, many people use free versions of games to get used to them before risking real money.

All of these reasons are perfectly valid reasons to play at online casinos for free.

Best Free Online Casino Games

Different Ways to Play Free Casino Games

Whether you want to play free slots online or maybe a couple of rounds of free roulette, there are plenty of online providers of the casino experience that will be happy to oblige.

All without you having to pay a penny out of your pocket.

Generally, in any quality online casino, all you have to do is go to the game you like and select the free demo version and start playing.

It’s that simple.

There is rarely anything else to do.

This option is usually obvious, but if you can’t figure it out right away, you can always talk to the customer support section, and they should be able to help you.

Free Blackjack

To be able to play free blackjack is something that’s highly desired by casino players of all types and stripes.

In fact, in some ways, many people would consider this the most important game of all to play for free.

This is simply for one main reason: out of everything on offer in your typical online casino, blackjack is the game that has the highest element of player skill involved in it.

This also means that, in many cases, it has the highest average return to player rate (RTP).

Trying out free strategies allows people to get better at the game that much quicker.

Free Online Slots

You will find that more than anything else, there are many opportunities at online casinos to play free casino slot games.

You will also find that often no deposit bonus offers will be tied to recently released online slots.

Online casinos and game providers will invariably want players, new and old, to try their new casino games for free.

This is especially true in the area of online slots.

Because of this, you will find it very easy to get a no deposit bonus and free spin offers for some of the better online slots out there.

This is good news for you as a slots aficionado, to be sure.

Play Free Online Slots Without Depositing

Free Online Roulette

Another in the long procession of free online casino games are free roulette offerings.

These may not be as popular as free online slots or blackjack experiences, but people who love roulette defend it vigorously.

Roulette is a game that has its unique kind of charm.

While roulette doesn’t have the same intense strategy elements as can be found in any one of blackjack’s many variations, people have and use a wide repertoire of betting strategies for the game.

On quite a few occasions, savvy and serious casino players like to practice these strategies while playing for free, in the same way, they would with any blackjack game.

Free Video Poker

Video poker is a classic for many of us who grew up in the 1980s and even younger generations.

Video poker has been one of the brick and mortar formats that has best translated to the online realm, with many millions of fans playing video poker games online regularly.

There is certainly no lack of free options for playing online poker either.

These are more or less in the same category as online slots.

The only exception is that there will be more free offers and no deposit bonuses geared toward them in the area of online slots, as they are a bit more mainstream.

Everything Else

Besides slots, video poker, blackjack and roulette (the four most popular options for playing for free), if you look, you can also find other free games.

You’ll find free versions of regular poker (usually Texas Hold ‘Em or variants), bingo, keno and baccarat, as well as games like craps, bridge, etc.

Sometimes, online casinos will offer different games of chance worldwide, such as the increasingly popular Mah Jong, Go (insanely popular in Japan and Korea) or some interesting Indian game of chance.

There are also classic board games like Monopoly on offer for free.

Poke around the internet, and you may be surprised what you can find without having to pay a penny!

Which Free Online Games Are Right for You?

There is no answer as to what the best free casino games are.

This depends entirely on you as a player and as an individual, your tastes, style of playing, etc.

The relevant questions you have to ask yourself to determine the answer to this question are: How important is a skill as a factor in gaming for me?

Do I like my gaming to be very involved or something more mindless?

Do I like playing against others mainly, or do I prefer to play against the house?

How important is having a high RTP for me?

Along with these questions, there are many others you could ask yourself.

Pros of Playing Free Casino Games

Many people swear by playing casino games for free exclusively, and it is their absolute right to do so.

The best thing that could be said here is simply this: Imagine all the options you have out there for online gaming, all over the internet and all over the world.

Now, imagine that this is 95% of the total because some options aren’t free.

Now, imagine that money is not an issue because you are playing for free.

It’s pretty easy when one thinks in those terms to see the power of playing free online games.

When you eliminate money as a factor, your available options multiply.

  • Hours of free enjoyment
  • No financial risk
  • You can learn certain games for free

Bonuses for Playing Free Casino Games

When you are playing for free, casino bonuses are not necessarily everybody’s top priority.

However, there is one main exception to this rule of thumb.

You can qualify for a no deposit bonus at casinos that offer that option.

This allows for some of the dynamics of playing with real money without risking any real money.

For some people, this is a ‘best of both worlds’ type scenario.

Of course, the main drawback to this strategy is that, naturally, you will have to create an account (and usually verify it) at the online casino of your choice to enjoy the no deposit bonus benefit.

Cons of Playing Free Casino Games

Many of the cons of playing new free casino games have been falling by the wayside.

This is mainly because free play options have constantly been growing, both in terms of quality and quantity.

At this point, one hardly notices the difference between playing for real money and playing for free, at least in variety and quality.

Competition has made the online casino industry more and more of a “buyers” market. This includes the tendency for online casinos to offer more and more free options.

There aren’t many reasons why one would think twice about playing for free in this day and age. They are listed below:

  • Some people miss that “thrill” of playing for money
  • You may miss out on many bonus types
  • Live gaming is difficult to play for free
  • You won’t win any money

Download vs No Download Free Casino Games

Whether you want to download your favourite free casino games or not download them depends on many factors.

Firstly, if you are gaming from a mobile device, you are probably not going to want to download anything except apps that interface with your favourite online casinos in certain cases.

Also, if you like to game on multiple devices, downloading on each one is much less convenient.

Sometimes, there can also be very long wait times for downloads, even if you have a good internet connection.

Finally, if you don’t download anything, there’s much less risk of viruses and such, although you can almost completely avoid this risk by only downloading from reputable sources, of course.

Having said that, there are many situations in which downloading games can be useful.

If you’re going to go somewhere with poor or zero internet connectivity, it’s often a good idea to download beforehand so that you can continue your enjoyment uninterrupted by internet-related problems.

Also, games may wind up running more smoothly for many reasons, especially if you have a good device to play them on (this is especially true for people who use desktop computers).

This is true even for those with good internet connections.

If you are on a desktop, you are less likely to have to worry about the local storage space for a few games, whereas on mobile, storage space is always premium.

Should You Download Free Casino Games or Not

Good Game Providers to Look for Who Offer Free Games

Here is a quick list of the top gaming providers that offer free versions of most, if not all, of their games:

  • Net Entertainment (aka NetEnt)
  • IGT, Microgaming
  • Playtech
  • Konami
  • Yggdrasil
  • Kajot
  • Merkur
  • WMS
  • Aristocrat
  • Novomatic
  • Red Tiger (famous for their “Megaways” slot mechanic)

Of course, there are many more providers outside this list, but this should give you a quick idea of how easy it is to find free versions of popular casino games online.

As a rough estimate, it could be said that 95% or more of what’s available as “pay for play” games online is also available for free.

The only general exception to this rule would be things such as live casino offerings.

Just as an aside, it’s still essential when you want to play casino games for free to look for reputable sites.

A good online casino site should have great user feedback and solid international certifications.

People who play on fly-by-night websites often find themselves victims of phishing attacks or cyber-attacks ranging up to and including full-on identity theft!

Please be careful out there and try to stick to the names on the list mentioned above or other providers with similar credentials, references and reputations.

The internet, unfortunately, is full of risks these days.

The good news is that the vast majority of these risks are easily avoided.

Why Do People Even Bother Risking Real Money?

The answer to this question is also to be found at the individual and personal subjective level.

There is one real reason why people would prefer to risk real money instead of playing for free.

Many people feel that it provides a much better thrill if the real money is on the line.

For people like this, there isn’t much point in playing for free.

It’s really up to each individual to self-regulate and make intelligent choices regarding how one plays games.

Like everything else in life, there has to be a good and healthy balance between all the different elements involved in gaming and the rest of one’s earthly existence.

It should be noted that we encourage responsible gambling, whether it be with real money or for free.

Contrary to popular belief, and perhaps a bit counter-intuitively, there still exists the danger of addiction even when playing casino games for fun!

While not running the risk of financial ruin when gaming for free, there still exists the genuine danger of spending an inordinate amount of time playing and neglecting other important areas of one’s life in the process.

The same thing can happen and has unfortunately happened with massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs).

Individual gamers are all very strongly encouraged to administer their time wisely and responsibly.

Playing Responsibly Even On Free Casino Games

Conclusion

When playing free casino games, no deposit is usually required.

You can have a practically unlimited amount of fun without ever having to risk your funds.

The important thing to remember is that you should feel perfectly free to play for free for as long as you wish to do so.

Don’t let people tell you that it’s “necessary” to risk real money.

If you don’t feel personally ready or are just not interested in playing for real money, for whatever reason, keep playing for free for as long as you like.

Don’t be swayed by outside pressures from anybody or anything! The decision to play for money or for free should be your personal choice.

Free Casino Games FAQ

Is it easy to play free casino games?

In a word, yes. Most online casinos have free versions of their games. Moreover, the internet is a big place, and it’s not hard to find places and ways to play casino games for free. The vast majority of options where you play for real money are also available for free online. That means that your options are all but unlimited when it comes to playing casino games for free.

What kind of casino bonuses can you get playing for free?

In general, the only bonus available to players who are playing for free is what is called the “no-deposit” bonus. If you wish to play for free and still take advantage of casino bonus offers, you have to look for a provider with a no-deposit bonus as an option. These are not that hard to find, however. Many of the best online casinos offer this type of bonus.

Is it necessary to transition to playing for real money later for maximum enjoyment?

The short answer to this is no. There’s no reason at all why you should ever have to transition to real money. If you do wind up doing so in the future, it should be a conscious decision on your part. You should never feel pressured to play with real money if you’re not comfortable with that. Everybody’s play style and psychological make-up are different. It would help if you did what’s right for you.

Is it safe to play for free online?

The short answer to this is! If playing online for real money is very safe and secure (and we can assure you that it is), playing for free is even more secure. Online casino providers and similar sites take the subject of online security very seriously, perhaps in many cases even more so than do many major banks. You have nothing to worry about playing for free online as long as you stick to reputable websites.
