    So I've previously stated in another thread that I haven't been lucky enough to win something whilst playing on online casinos. This changed for me last week. I am a member of an online casino called Springbok Casino and received an email from them, as usual, prompting me to play as I had a lot of comp points in my account. When I logged on to the casino, I saw I still had some money in my account from a no-deposit bonus I played a couple of months ago. It was only $10 I had left in the account and the play-through was a humungous $2070. Never thought I would even get through the play-through. I started playing with my measly $10 and started winning a little here and there, as I increased my bet, I obviously started winning more. I played carelessly as I really didn't think that I would win enough to get through the play-through conditions, but then....I won $178 and I met the play-through requirements!! I was so ecstatic as this was the first time this happened to me! I immediately requested a withdrawal...too scared to play more. I don't have that much luck! :D:DWaiting for my winnings now...

    Anyone else had a No-Deposit bonus turn into winnings?

    Yay! Welcome to the club lol... I have been able to play through the requirement on about 3 different casinos that I found here on the boards including Grand Fortune Casino (link) and Raging Bull Casino (link).

    Depending on the bonus terms, it may seem like it is impossible but I always say that you will never know unless you try. Good luck with your withdrawal request. Keep us updated!

    **forgot to add - both experiences ended with my withdrawal request being approved and sent to me via bank wire**

    I have not had a no-deposit bonus turn into winnings. Congratulations on your win! Your thread and the post proves that it is possible. That is an unexpected story. My day is coming soon.

    Congratulations indeed, I have never made it either, but hey, they are non-deposit bonus so no one can take the fun away from us. Amazing that you managed the play-through requirements! How long did it take?

    Thanks! It took about a day and a half. But I was playing on and off during the day. I'm at home with baby and working from home as well, so only played when I had a moment to myself. But I must admit that I was playing with quite a big bet per line because I never thought I would actually get through the play-through requirements.

    And my pay-out actually came really fast. After submitting the account verification forms, it took only 4 or 5 days to reflect in my account! So I'm a happy mama because now I can buy more cloth diapers! Hahaha

    Haha, so that's the best prize, money for what we really need.

    That happens with free money, we aren't really expecting it to be ours so we play freely and sometimes that works well. :)

    I have said in other threads that I don´t think play-through requirements on bonus money is as harsh as people think it is. Remember, casinos pay a ton of money for marketing and advertising to get people into their casino. Having fairly frequent $178 winners who are excited and tell their friends is a really effective form of marketing.

    Good point right there @petesede, I haven't given much thought to that perspective. It's all a matter of odds though, but of course that someone winning is always good marketing for more people to join that casino.
