For most people, the casino is only a place frequented by a few ‘rich people’ seeking to play with their money, and possibly increase it exponentially with the right mix of luck and skills. People without much money have therefore tended to stay away from casinos, out of the feeling that the casinos were simply not meant for them. Indeed, there is a school of thought who for long held and popularized the notion that you could never ‘get anything for free from a casino’ until the concept of free casino play came up.
The way the casino free play concept works is such that the players get the opportunity to start playing in the games that the casino offering such ‘free casino play’ might be having – which could be anything from the popular roulette to blackjack, video poker or slots – absolutely free of charge (without demanding any initial deposit, for instance), and in most cases, with the potential to win real money from their play should their skill and luck combination carry the day for them.
To be sure, most casinos operating under the free play casino concept offer it with limits, so that the free play opportunity is limited to so many dollars, for instance. Upon the end of a member’s casino free play dollars, they are typically required to start depositing money into their account with the casino, for them to continue playing.
Contrary to what many people image when they first hear about the free casino play concept: that the players playing with the free casino money have lower chances of winning that those playing with real money, the true position is that the people playing with the free casino money have as good chances of winning as the people playing with real money. The idea that the people playing under the casino free play system have lower chances of winning probably stems from our ingrained tendency to treat ‘free things’ with suspicion; which in some cases is unwarranted.
Arguing that the people playing under the casino free play system have lower chances of winning their game is the same, in a way of speaking, as arguing that the students learning under a scholarship (which most institutions offer for free) have lower chances of being employed upon finishing their studies: which is obviously a fallacy! Arguing that the people playing under the casino zero deposit system have lower chances of winning than people playing with real money they have deposited in the system is also like saying that the ‘free samples’ offered by various companies are faulty products, which is obviously a fallacy, since it is in every company’s best interests to ‘put its best foot forward’ when trying to attract new ‘customers’ through such free samples.
