The best way to get somebody interested in a product or service is to give away a present or even better to give something for free. But it is highly unlikely that organizations will give away presents or something for free when you are not buying the product at the end. What comes now is a situation that you can choose to go to a swimming pool and decide there whether you want to pay for the entrance or not. But the entrance is secured: you can swim. A strange situation, but this is more or less what online casino’s are offering when we talk about free online roulette or other games that can be played.
What’s going on in the world of games and gambling? The answer is simple and has to do with marketing. The online casinos have the idea -and that’s widely spread- that when they offer free online roulette or so the chance is bigger that eventually the player will go for more and will chance his status from a player for free into that of a paying customer. And it probably works for we see no signals that this objective is going to be changed and we are very happy with that. There are a number of reasons why offering free online roulette is important. Firstly it gives the possibility to players to try out the game and by playing it to learn more about the game and the rules pending. When somebody enters a brick and mortar casino for the first time it is not so remarkable that he/she will look around a bit to see what is happening and what games are offered. A choice for roulette makes sense because everybody has seen it played in movies and the rules are simple. In fact you can start playing immediately when you only know a few options for betting: red or black, odds or even. For other options to need to be guided and that’s not so difficult for your fellow players will be happy to explain it to you and otherwise the croupiers will tell you. Free roulette is very rare in a normal casino, free online roulette is usage. A land-based casino has a lot of daily obligations to fulfill and to maintain a building, not to mention the number of people that is working there. An online casino has less overhead and -apart from live roulette- it is just the software that is doing the job, that is offering you free online roulette.
Another reason why we regard it important that free online roulette is offered is that playing for real money has always a risk, the risk that you will lose the money. It is a game of chance after all and the possibility that people are losing bets is part of the deal, nothing wrong with that. But you must be able to calculate the risks, not only by playing free online roulette but also by playing other games you find attractive. Once you have a better view on the risks you can set a budget for yourself that you will use to play for real money. You will learn that all online casinos have different sections in the level that comes after the free online roulette, depending on what players would like to bet at the minimum and at the maximum of their financial capacity. This is a very important issue because there is always an open door to addiction and that’s not because online casinos will push you into that direction, but because players do that by losing control of the time and the money they can spend. Free online roulette is a way to prevent that because you can better estimate the risks and be prepared.
There is a third reason why it is good that online casinos are offering free online roulette and that is that sometimes you want to play without putting money at stake. Your time is maybe limited and you want to play a while for fun only to fill the period that you have to wait for your partner to be ready to go to the cinema. Nothing wrong with that and it is a nice thing that you can spend unlimited time in online casinos, playing for free without pressure to deposit (extra) money or to risk more than you can afford. And while playing you will notice that there is hardly any difference! By giving notice that you want to play for free the online casino will allocate a sum of virtual money on the display and with that virtual money the game can give you as much fun as by playing for real money. Online casinos do not control the minutes and hours that you play free online roulette, normally they never set limits for it. They know by experience that a certain number of players is never going to play for real money. But the software can work for both groups at the same time, so it is not costing the online casinos a lot of money. And to suspicious governments they can always point to this service to counter complaints that they cause addiction problems, which by the way is a proven thing for casinos and gaming halls, but is never showed in a convinced manner for online gaming. But even then, it is better to avoid these problems, firstly for the players of course but also for the online casinos that have a number of measures at hand for players that need support to limit themselves in their gaming habits.
Free online roulette is normally not available for live roulette. That has only one reason and that is that there is a limited number of tables available and it is not easy to organize that free online roulette and roulette for real money can be played at the same table. But the many people who love to play free online roulette will not care about that. They have enough fun with the regular roulette and that’s why free online roulette is offered!
