Casinos love UK residents. It must be the accent! Seriously though, two well known casinos are offering new registrations from the United Kingdom a total of £30 free, no deposit required. One of these casinos even lets players enjoy the game with a live dealer on TV (Channels: Sky 862, ITV and Freeview 39).
Let’s start with Gala Casino. They have been around as a brick and mortar (actual real building) casino since around 2000. Gala Coral is well known in the UK, especially among bingo players. A few years ago they really kicked their online casino presence into high gear. Powered by both IGT and Playtech games, Gala Casino Online is truly a great site to have a membership at.
Next up is a casino called Jackpot247. If you are a resident of the UK and do a lot of channel surfing, you may have very well stumbled upon their live casino show. Basically you place your wagers online and you can watch your TV as the action plays out in real time with a true live dealer, or croupier in the case of Roulette.

The United Kingdom is very progressive when it comes to online gaming freedoms compared to the USA, and this openness has delivered a much safer and regulated environment. Many of the best UK facing online casinos and poker rooms are even traded on the London Stock Exchange as publicly owned companies.
My point here is that UK residents who do not have accounts at these two sites should download both, enjoy the £10 free chip, and then pick which one they like best to make a deposit.
Why deposit? Most no deposit offers come with wagering requirements as well as a cap on possible winnings. It is a necessary step for online casinos to take to lower their risk if they are giving away thousands of dollars in free money. However, if you make a deposit yourself, those caps and limits go away.
I just took a peek at the jackpots tab on Jackpots247, and there are currently over £1,000,000 in jackpots waiting to drop on a lucky winner. If you want to take a shot at those life changing jackpots, tossing in a small deposit is certainly worth it.
Gala Casino £20 Free Terms and Conditions
This is a brief run down of the important points. For full terms and conditions, view the Gala Casino website.
£20 offer is only available to new customers to Gala Casino, who are 18 years or older and residents of the UK. Upon successful registration of an account, the player will see a pop-up asking them to register a valid debit or credit card. Terms and conditions must be accepted. The debit/credit card must be in the account holders name.
The bonus is credited immediately upon account creation and registering a debit or credit card in the account. The bonus is redeemable after completing the wagering requirements. The bonus must be wagered 50x ($500 in wagers) on qualifying games. Some games count more towards the wagering requirement than others. Check the handy chart on Gala’s website!
The bonus expires in 7 days from being awarded. You must meet the wagering requirements in 7 days or both the bonus and any winnings are removed!
Max win is £100. Players will need to make a deposit of at least £10 to request a withdrawal. This is a standard procedure to help prevent fraud and abuse.
Jackpot247 Casino £10 Free Terms and Conditions
Wagering requirements are a little more strenuous at Jackpot247, but then you again, you don’t even have to register a valid credit or debit card to get this £10 credit. Bonus must be wagered 99x ($990 in total wagers) within 30 days.
Age and ID verification will be required if you meet the wagering requirements and want to cash out. Registration of a valid debit/credit card and minimum deposit may be required to cash out. However, you can immediately cash out any deposit along with your winnings if you wish.
A couple of very important points to make. First, wagers of greater than 20% of the bonus do NOT count towards the wagering requirements. So don’t make bets greater than $2! Secondly, do not request a cash out until you have met the wagering requirement. While this is a bit of a no brainer, there are a lot of players who try to sneak one past the casino. In this case, your bonus and winnings will likely all be forfeited if you try to cashout before meeting the wagering requirements.
