Getting Started at Online Casino Sites

Getting Started at Online Casino Sites

Getting started at an online casino for the very first time is relatively straightforward, but before you can play on any of the games in the real money mode you need to fill out the simple online casino registration form and wait for your new account to be fully activated. You must be at least 18 years old to play in an online casino and you have to fill out all of the sections of the application form.

Some of the things that are required include your title (Mr, Mrs etc.), your first name, your last name, your email address, your home phone number (or main landline number) and/or your mobile number. You also need to enter your date of birth, your country of residence, your preferred currency that you wish to play in (preferably your own local currency), your postcode/zip code and full address of where you live at the time of registration.

Some online casinos will provide you with a unique username which cannot be changed, but other casinos will ask you to create your very own unique username/nickname. If this username is already in use, you’ll have to come up with a different one. At this point you will also be required to create a new password for your account and these credentials will both be used each time you attempt to sign in to your account. As an added measure of security, you will be asked to set a security question with a secret answer and you will need to confirm that you have read throughout the T’s & C’s before submitting your details.

The casino will also ask you to check or uncheck the box which says that you would like to receive promotional details via email, sms or by post. Once you have confirmed that the details are correct, hit submit button to complete the online registration. Your new account should be active in a matter of seconds. All that’s left to do know is head to the cashier and make your first ever deposit. Don’t forget to claim your guaranteed new player welcome bonus that you are entitled to when making your first ever deposit.

Before you can withdraw any cash from your account, you generally have to prove to the casino that you are who you say you are. This is otherwise known as account verification. The casino will request some form of additional identification and proof of address and this information can usually be found on a recent bank statement or energy bill, plus you will also need to send a colour copy of your passport or driver’s license.

This verification process can take anywhere up to 48 hours to complete, but once completed, it means that you can deposit & withdraw freely whenever you please. If you don’t send in the required documents, you won’t be able to withdraw as and when you please. You also need to be aware that these documents need to be less than three months old, otherwise the verification department won’t accept them.
