Playing casino games online can be a great deal of fun and there are lots to choose from these days. In fact, the online casino industry is one of the few web-based industries that have continuously and consistently grown, decade after decade. This is largely because everyone loves to play casino games whenever they can, ether just for fun or for real money. With a huge list of casino sites in the UK that are fully regulated you don’t have to worry about safety. Everything is now “mobile friendly” In other words, the very same online casino that you’ve been playing at can now be enjoyed on your mobile device, with all of the same games, prizes, bonuses and more.

Finding Your Casino App

We’ve all been there, trying to find the best app on the app store for whatever we need – games, diets, planners, launchers, and on and on. No matter what app you need, you will always have to sift through dozens of contenders before finding the one that will work best for your needs. This is the same for online casino apps, dozens and dozens of options and only a few that are any good.

A common mistake that people make when looking for a good casino app, is to only search for real money casino apps or only search for fun casino apps, based on their specific needs. The fact of the matter is that all good casino apps will offer both options, play for real money and play just for fun. The only real difference here is that, if you want to play for real money, you need to make a cash deposit with the casino. However, in either instance, you still need to download the app and set up your own personal account- that is non-negotiable.

Can You Really Play without Money?

The short answer here is yes, you can. The longer answer is obviously a bit more complicated. For starters, it is worth noting that not every online casino (or by extension – their mobile casino app) will allow you to play for free. However, this is usually the exception and not the norm. Most casinos will let you try most of their games for free, without requiring you to deposit any real money of your own. This works in a couple of different ways:

  1. Try for free or ‘Demo’ modes: Most online casino games such as slots, blackjack, roulette and so forth are available in two different modes: Play for Real or Play for Fun. This basically means that you can try these games for free to see how they work or if you like the theme, features and so on. Once you’ve decided that you like the game, you can make a small deposit, take a bonus booster and play the same game in real money mode.
  2. No deposit bonus: A no deposit bonus is pretty common for most online casinos and generally extends to their mobile apps as well. Quite simply, the online casino in question is willing to give you a small amount of money (usually between 50 to 100 Dollars/Pounds/Euros) in hopes that you’ll try out their casino and fall in love with it, at least enough to make a cash deposit of your own money. The benefit here is that you get to play a few games (and with some casino even keep your winnings) all while not spending a cent of your own money.
