For those unfamiliar with the concept, a No Deposit Bonus is exactly what it sounds like, but something you would never expect. The online casino gives you bonus money to play with, before you even make a deposit. To be clear, this is not some type of trial mode or pretend-money, this is money that you can use and if you win, it can result in real money that you can withdrawal. Does this seem too good to be true? Well actually it is true, but there are a lot of restrictions.
For the most part, players generally get caught up in choosing an online casino based on bonuses or promotions, or maybe the casino theme plays a part in the decision. But there are much more important things to consider and verify after you have chosen at which casino you want to gamble. There are many legal and tax implications when gambling online, which can come back to bite you either when you go to cash-out, or when your government finds out about your winnings. The most obvious example is the recent crack-down in South Africa, where the bank accounts of players were confiscated by the government and the players were essentially taxed at 100% of their winnings if they had played in unapproved casinos.

This will have three very noticeable effects, one which the online casinos may need to be weary of.
