Information about Free Spins On Card Registration UK
Free Spins on Card Registration UK
In 2021, free spin deals remain one of the most hotly searched topics in the casino and bingo niche. To the uninitiated, free spins offers look fairly samey, but once you scratch the surface, you’ll realise such offers range hugely in their generosity and overall value to players. In this guide, we’re going to equip you with the knowledge to search out the best free spins offer, whether you’re an occasional player looking for a new casino or a serial sign upper, committed bonus hunter.
Why the requirement to register card details?
This is a fair question that will likely cross your minds. After all, if you’re there to claim the free spins and you’re not expecting or expected to make a deposit to do so, then why enter your card details? It’s a bit of a hassle, isn’t it?
The cynics amongst you will probably believe you already have the answer and that answer is probably based on the operators wanting your card details so that once you’ve spun away your freebie spins, they can more easily entice you into making a deposit – the thing they ultimately want you to do.
Prior to 2020 the above was probably about right and it stands to reason that you’re more likely to spend the time entering card details whilst the free spins carrot is being dangled than you would be having exhausted those free spins.
What many of you may not realise (or care about) is that in 2019 the UKGC demanded that operators tidy up their act with regards to player identification, particularly with regard to age checking customers, verifying their name and address prior to allowing them to gamble.
In 2021 just about all operators verify the identity and importantly the age of their customers by using their debit card details to run simple, credit search style checks. These checks will be detailed in the terms and conditions when you sign up and those that are on the electoral register should sail through with no problems. The checks will never leave a mark on your credit records unlike the sort of checks that are applied when taking out a mortgage or car loan. So, this is why in 2021 you’ll almost certainly be required to enter debit card details to claim those free spins.
Free Spins or Bonus Spins – Is there a difference?
Generally, this area is a bit of a mess, we see many bonus spin deals advertised as ‘free spins’.
Free Spins are where winnings will be paid out in real money, which can be withdrawn at the customer’s discretion subject to the site’s terms and conditions.
Bonus Spins payout in bonus money. Bonus funds are distinct from real money in the sense that they cannot be withdrawn until certain wagering requirements are met, after which points the funds are converted into ‘real money’ and can be withdrawn subject to the site’s terms and conditions.
The above can be frustrating to players and at Bingo Paradise we do our best to only list offers which pay out in real money as ‘Free Spins’, but since this is a somewhat complicated area, we suggest you always read the significant terms and conditions which relate to the offer you’re claiming.
Are all free spins deals equal?
As we touched on in our opening paragraph, it’s very much the case that not all free spins deals are equal. We always suggest those looking for a bonus offer or free spins remain aware of the ‘too good to be true’ adage. Whilst on the face of it, a deal presented as ’10 Free Spins, No Deposit Required’ may sound fantastic, there are a number of caveats that may lurk in the terms and conditions, ready to strip the offer of its initial shine and lead to your disappointment. Such caveats may be:
–Max Win per spin – It isn’t unusual to see casinos and bingo sites offering spin offers that have a ‘max win per spin’ clause attached to them. This literally means that you’re only ever in with the chance of winning an amount per spin up to the maximum stated figure.
–Maximum bonus conversions – This small print refers to bonus spins, which if you remember are those spins that payout in bonus funds. Whenever you see this term it means that you will never be able to convert into real money (the sort you can withdraw) an amount that is greater than this figure.
–Wagering Requirements – This is one of the most common restrictions placed on spins offers and is usually expressed as ‘X x Wagering Requirements’ (where x= a number). For instance, if the term states that the offer is subject to 10 x Wagering Requirements, it’s important to check the terms at the specific site, but generally, these restrictions mean that you must wager your bonus winnings a certain number of times before you become eligible to withdraw those funds.
Operators known for free spins on card registration
In 2021 an operator which springs to mind for offering up quite a number of these deals is Jumpman Gaming. This is a company that has previously only offered the Mega Wheel and Mega Reel, two very similar prize wheel type welcome offers which offer players a variety of prize options, with the star of the show being 500 spins on a selected slot game (often Fluffy Favourites or Starburst).
In late 2020 Jumpman Gaming ventured into the free spins no deposit market and now offers a range of 10 Bonus Spin or 20 Bonus Spin offers on a limited number of their near 200 sites.
The Jumpman offers will always require you to add a debit card before claiming the spins and the spins themselves will come with a range of requirements, such as a 65x wagering requirement, a £50 maximum bonus conversion and a maximum of £8 win per 10 spins.
If you’ve read our guides and articles before you’ll probably already know how this goes… With any type of free offer, we suggest you slow down and take the time to read the terms and conditions that apply. If nothing else, read the significant terms and keep in mind, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Nevertheless, something for nothing is generally considered a good thing.
Free Spins On Card Registration UK FAQ
Why do Free Spins Offers require card details to be added?
Due to rules which UKGC licensed casinos must adhere to, casinos must verify player identity (name, age and address) prior to allowing players to gamble. One of the key ways in which operators do this is by using debit card details.
Is there a difference between Free Spins and Bonus Spins?
Usually Free Spins payout in real money (withdrawable funds) whereas Bonus Spins payout in bonus funds (separate to your real money balance and cannot be withdrawn).
What are the most commonly available Free Spins Offers?
Most often we seem to see 20 Free Spins offers, but from time to time you will see 5, 10 and even greater denominations of free or bonus spins.
Are Free Spins offers a scam?
As with all casino deals the key thing you should look at is whether the casino is licensed by the UK gambling commission. If it is, this should give you a great degree of confidence that the offer is legit. However, you must read the terms and conditions and wagering requirements to understand the deal you’re getting.
Can I win a lot of money on Free Spins offers?
The short answer is 'it depends'. Free Spins offers often have a plethora of terms and conditions in addition to wagering requirements. Often terms such as maximum wins and maximum bonus conversion (for Bonus Spins) will thwart your chances at winning big.
