How do referral \"free gigs\" work?

I’m new to Fiverr and got a free gig because I signed up with my friends referral link. How does this work? When I choose the gig I want and get it for free, does fiverr give that seller his $4 or are they forced to give it to me for free? If the latter I would rather cancel my free gig and just pay the $5. I don’t want to force someone to give me their work for free. If they are indeed forced to give it for free and fiverr doesn’t give them their $4, how would I get the free gig thing off my account and just pay for my first gig? Or would I need to create a new account?

I thought you had $5 put into your account but you could ask customer support this question.
