It’s common for no deposit bonuses (bonus credits or free chips) to be eligible on table games. However, because games such as blackjack and roulette offer such great odds, online casinos will limit what they term as ‘game contribution’.
Let’s go over what this means:
Game Contribution – A percentage that determines how much of your winnings goes towards fulfilling your wagering requirements.
If you play blackjack or roulette with a no deposit bonus, it’s likely that your casino will set the ‘game contribution’ to as little as 4% – but what does this mean? Well, slots are usually set at 100%, which means that 100% of what you win on a slot machine will go towards the wagering requirements. On the other hand, if you play blackjack or roulette, only 4% of your winnings will go towards your wagering requirements.
Therefore, if you win $100 on slots, that translates to $4 on blackjack or roulette. Consequently, you will have to win 25x more playing blackjack or roulette than you would on slots to fulfil the same amount of your wagering requirements. We do not recommend playing on table games with a no deposit bonus unless it’s just for fun.
