#1. Play Table Games
We can see why this would be tempting.
Table games have fantastic odds. Sadly, casinos are well aware of it.
With most no deposit bonuses you won’t be allowed to play table games at all. They will be made ineligible and attempting to play them will lead to your bonus being confiscated.
However, there are no deposit bonuses eligible on table games.
At first, these may appear like a potential gold-mine. But when you look a little closer you will come across a term called Game Weighting Percentages.
A bonus’ “game weighting percentages” determines how much of your stake will contribute to the wagering requirements. Let’s illustrate what we mean by this:
Game Weighting Percentages:
- Slots (100%)
- Blackjack (4%)
The percentages in our example signify how much of your bet will go towards the wagering requirements.
According to our example, slot games contribute 100%. Thus if you were to wager $1 on a slot game, $1 would go towards the wagering requirements. The same applies if you were to wager $100, or $1,000 – the entirety of your wager would go towards the wagering requirements.
Alternatively, games with high odds have a lower game weighting percentage. Usually, it will be somewhere between 0-20%.
Thus, following our example, if you were to wager $100 on blackjack, only $4 would contribute to the wagering requirements.
As you can see, the difference is stark.
You have little chance of winning real money with your no deposit bonus if you try to play high odds games.
