Can I play for free at online casinos?
Yes. You CAN play for free at all of our featured NZ casino sites. When you sign up to an online casino, you will be given a fun chips balance, which basically never runs out. If your fun balance does get to zero, it will either automatically top up, or you may need to close the game and reload it, or sign out of your account and then log back in for your fun balance to refresh.
The only games that are usually NOT available in the real money mode are the LIVE DEALER GAMES (such as Live Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat, and Live Casino Hold’em), and certain progressive jackpot pokies such as Mega Moolah, and Beach Life.
Do I have to accept an online casino bonus?
No. Online bonuses are not mandatory. You will always have the option to accept or decline a bonus. If you can find an online casino that has relatively low wagering requirements, then I would always say that it would be a good idea to accept the bonus. However, if you think that the wagering requirements are too steep or unrealistic, then you could simply decline the bonus instead of having to try and complete the wagering requirements.
Some players NEVER ACCEPT bonuses, whereas other players ALWAYS accept them. Free Spins Bonuses and No Deposit Bonuses are generally always worth claiming, but matching deposit bonuses aren’t always worth claiming.
How do I know the games are fair at online casinos?
The outcomes at online casinos are determined by Random Number Generators (RNG’s). It’s a random mathematical algorithm program that produces no discernible pattern, and therefore the outcomes are about as random as can be. Online casinos tend to have an average 93.00% to 98.00% Return to Player payout percentage rate (also known as the RTP% payout rate).
Let’s just say that the players wagered a total of $/€/£1,000,000 on the slots over a four week period. If they received $/€/£978,600 back in winnings, it means that the slots for that period had an average 97.86 RTP% rate. RNG’s, the systems and software are all constantly monitored and frequently tested all of our reviewed NZ casino sites by trusted third party auditors and online casino testing agencies, which means that you can always count on the fairness of the outcomes of the games. Sometimes luck will be on your side, and other times, you may not be so lucky.
