No Deposit bonuses have become something that has become common in the poker and gambling world. Now a number of different brokerages have started to offer no deposit bonuses. However from the above table you can see that the majority of the brokerages that offer these no deposit bonuses are unregulated offshore entities. Of the brokerages that offer no deposit bonuses only three are properly regulated entities. Both HiRose and Plus500 offer no deposit bonuses as well as being regulated by the FSA.
The Plus500 bonus involves giving and verifying your phone number with Plus500. They then deposit the bonus in your account, but you are only able to withdraw the bonus if you undertake enough trading activity in the allotted time frame. After three months the bonus is then removed from your account. While it is possible to earn the amount of trader points required to withdraw the bonus it is somewhat of a challenge. Your only allowed to create one account per household as well meaning if you fail at your first attempt you can’t set up a new account to take advantage of the bonus.
At HiRose financial it is similar except that the bonus and the profits made from the bonus can only be withdrawn after you have made a real money deposit. This means that a trader is going to have to make a deposit of some sort if there ever going to free up their bonus earnings. Apart from HiRose and Plus500, all the other no deposit bonuses listed are with unregulated and mainly offshore brokerages.
If you want to try your hand at trading real money without depositing yourself, the Plus500 no deposit bonus is probably your best shot. I will aim to keep this page up to date if any other brokerages begin to offer no deposit bonuses.
