How Online Casinos Use Free Spins
Free spins are often used by online casinos to welcome new players and encourage them to try a casino’s slot machines. There are many other uses for free spins as well. They are included in virtually every online video slot machine game.
Many deposit bonuses offered to new players at an online casino include free spins. However, in most if not all cases, players are not permitted to keep their winnings from those free spins unless they continue to wager them enough to meet the casino’s strict requirements. This is something many players who are new to online casinos don’t realize until it is too late.
Another way in which free spins are used by online casinos are as in- game bonuses. In most slot machine games when players get three of the game’s scatter symbols on the reels after a spin they get 10 free spins. Typically, though not always, four scatter symbols get players 15 free spins and five scatters get them 20 free spins. Players are permitted to keep their winnings from these free spins and can request a withdrawal from the casino once they have completed the game.
When online casinos introduce a new slot machine game they often run promotions in which new players will get free spins for the game. This often results in players trying a game that they may have otherwise overlooked.
Free spins are always played automatically and in most cases, players cannot stop them. Many slot machine games have a retrigger feature in which players have the potential to win additional free spins. These spins are usually played quickly to keep the game proceeding at an appropriate pace.

Royal Vegas often runs a promotion in which new players that deposit at least $10 will receive 30 free spins as well as 20 free spins to be used for the casino’s newest game. To receive the 20 free spins, players simply need to register an account with the casino.
