A form of online poker bonus which is basically free money given away by the online poker site. This is due to the availability of a large number of poker rooms on the internet offering new players a small bankroll just to try out their poker software and games.
It is a really good deal for both the player and poker room. With this online poker bonus, the player receives some free money, which is not a bad thing, and this provides a shot to the poker room for converting a player into a long term customer.
If you win money using the no deposit poker bonus, the winnings are yours to keep. Of course, there are some limitations on the “free” cash. No poker room will give its players any money if it’s not going to benefit them in any way.
The no deposit bonus requirements may differ from room to room, but basically you’ll be required to generate a certain amount of rake at the poker tables prior to being able to cash out the bonus and any associated winnings. Poker rooms do this to prevent bonus whores from claiming a no deposit bonus and taking off straight away with the money.
