It is true to say that we have never seen a land based casino that welcomes you with some free play money so that you can experience the buzz of playing casino games but at online casinos on the other hand you can play free casino everywhere. Every online casino will provide the opportunity to play casino games for free or with what is called play money although it must be said that some online casinos make it easier than others. Bwin/Party seem to make it particularly hard whereas All Irish Casino has free casino as a sort of default position, some even insist on a registration before free casino is available although that does not require a deposit to be made. Free casino really is a great idea both for the online casino and for the online casino player. The online casino hopes that you enjoy the experience and the excitement and will want to play for real money whilst for the player it is an opportunity to try out some new casino games or even some new strategy without risking your hard earned cash. In general the casino games in free play mode are the same as in real money mode except for the obvious differences such as progressive jackpot games which are often not available in free casino mode anyway. Beware of free casino games which are played against other players such as free poker as players will react very differently and take much larger risks than they would if playing for real money. There is generally a fixed amount of play money available in free casino mode which can be very quickly used up if you play for very large stakes so for a better experience go for mid range stakes and make it last a little longer although even if you run out it is usually possible to log out and log back in again to refresh the balance.
