How to Win Big from Free Spins

When signing up to a new casino, making a new deposit or simply as an unexpected gift online casinos love handing out free spins to their customers. This is great for us as players and provides an opportunity to hit a big win without spending any of our own cash, amazing!


In the article below we are going to look at some ways to maximise your free spins and try to hit the biggest wins possible!

Maximise your Free Spins Balance

Whilst you won’t always have control over how many free spins have been issued to you sometimes this is related to the amount you deposit or being opted in to a promotion before playing.

Most casinos have promotions which will grant players free spins (or other bonuses) based on how much they play. Because some of these promotions require the player to “opt-in” beforehand it is always worth checking the casino’s promotions page before playing – if you’re going to play anyway you might as well be eligible for any extra freebies, right?


In other cases the amount of free spins can be linked to the amount you deposit, again remember to check the promotions page and any recent emails from the casino for any deposit deals before you do so (some require a bonus code whilst depositing). Of course you should never deposit more than you feel comfortable with but in some cases depositing slightly more could land you with a nice deposit bonus and some free spins which might be worth the slight increase?

Use a High RTP Slot

If you look at the details for any slot you will often see a “RTP” percentage mentioned, this is the theoretical return to the player over the long term. In theory we should get more winnings form our free spins on machines with a higher RTP over the long run.

Often when given free spins you are limited to using them on a certain slot machine or category of slot machines (e.g. daily jackpot games). Assuming these are not your favourite games it makes sense to use your free spins on the slot with the highest RTP in the hope of getting the best return. Once you have wagered the free spins the winnings can then (usually) be wagered on any casino game allowing you to revert back to you favourites.

Try Something New

Whilst this option might not necessarily net you the biggest monetary wins if your free spins can be used on several different slot games why not take the opportunity to try a new slot machine? Again this might not necessarily make you the most money but you might stumble upon a new favourite game which could be priceless!

Don’t be Too Loyal

Whilst most online casinos reward loyalty sometimes you might feel your current casino is becoming a little mean with their bonuses? If this is the case why not venture out and try a new casino?

Most casinos have great welcome packages including plenty of bonus cash and free spins for new customers – if you need some help choosing why not take a look at our current top 10 online casinos!
