Gambling Online on a Budget

Not all of us (um…. me) boast an enormous bankroll where we can play endless online casino games without any concern or thought about the state of our bankroll. The vast majority of us (that’s me again…) need to carefully budget for our online gambling entertainment, ensuring that it doesn’t come in place of life’s necessities, and knowing that when that money runs out, there is no trying recoup losses – we simply have to wait for the next budgeted gambling session.

But it can’t be helped – online gambling is a fantastic pastime and it’s natural that you’d want to spend as much time as possible playing online, without the need to own a bank.  Here are a couple of tips that have helped me gamble online on a budget.

Play for Fun

Practically all online casinos allow you to download the software for free and play for free.  This ‘play for fun’ mode essentially offers you free credits which you use to play your favorite games at the site.  The plus side is that you can play endless casino games without the need to spend any of your money; the down side is that you aren’t playing for real money – which means you can’t win real money.

Play for Small Stakes

A vast number of online casino games have very small stakes, which means that you can drop as little as a penny into an online slot machine and still stand in line to win top prizes. You may not be able to win million dollar progressive jackpots with a penny, but you’re still enjoying real money online casino action and your bankroll lasts a whole lot longer when you’re sticking to small stakes games.

Take Advantage of Online Casino Bonuses

When you join a new online casino, you’re greeted with generous specials, including a welcome bonus.  These special offers essentially double your bankroll, thereby giving you twice the money than you initially planned to spend at the online casino.  When you return to the online casino again, you can use generous reload bonuses which, again, add plenty more beef to your original bankroll.
