What is a no deposit bonus?
A no deposit bonus is a type of sportsbook promo that awards you with cash to wager for without having to make a real money deposit . The no deposit bonuses usually have a small value, as sportsbooks are not willing to give away too much credits for free. But, they give you the chance to try out a new sportsbook without having to risk anything.
You may place a bet for the first time as a beginner and test your luck, or you may try betting on a different sport. Basically, it is a convenient way to test new games without risking your own money. You may not even be a gambler, and you just wonder what the fuss is all about.
These types of bonuses comes in the form of cash in your account's balance, but it can also come as free spins for slot games at online casinos. Given that in Illinois only online sportsbooks are legal so far, we will remain to this.
How it works
A no deposit bonus is mainly available in two forms. You can get it as free cash or as free spins. After your registration, you can use the bonus immediately for the bets or games it is eligible for.
Instead of depositing money, the bonus loads your account with free cash, for example, $20. You can now use these $20 to place bets.
