How to register with an online casino
As a best practice for online casinos the world over, they typically have a sign-up button at the top of the page; on either the right or the left hand side. If they’re smart, they’ll make it obvious with color coding and/or big bold letters. This is generally situated next to the login button and/or email and password fields.
Once you click on this button, you should be directed to a registration form where you’ll have to enter personal and preferential information such as your country, your birthdate and your desired currency of choice while playing at the casino.
Make a thorough check of the terms and conditions
Once you’ve entered all the information, we strongly recommend that you take a thorough glance through the terms and conditions to avoid any nasty surprises later. This is vital because sometimes players make certain assumptions or take things as a given without reading any of the fine print, leading to frustration and disappointments later. Sadly, some online casinos make things vague on purpose, so it’s on you to be extra careful with regards to the little details.
Confirmation and finalization
Next, you must confirm that you accept the terms and conditions before proceeding to the next step (if any). If you are asked to answer a secret question (as a future contingent security measure), be sure to record it somewhere so you won’t lose/forget it. Once you’ve filled out the entirety of the registration form, then hit ‘join’, ‘submit’ or any such similar variation of the button.
Once you’ve submitted the form, the online casino in question will usually send you a confirmation email (to the email you registered with), along with an activation link. Click on this link to activate your account. Once you do, you’ll usually be redirected to some page where the casino will verify and confirm the legitimacy of your account. You generally also have the option of copying and pasting this link in a new tab.
Funding your newly registered account
Once your account has been activated and you’re able to log in, now you’re all set the start funding your account. Most online casinos have a deposit or banking section clearly specified on a tab either at the top of the page or way down at the bottom. Once you are logged in, click on this button. Next, you will usually be presented with a selection of deposit methods; choose the one that best suits you. Also, some brands offer bonuses along with the method you have chosen; if so, decide if you wish to claim them at that point in time.
How long it takes for your funds to appear depends on the casino’s mode of operation in terms of its banking. However, most places make it so that the process happens instantaneously.
Sometimes you’ll have to briefly verify your identity before you can deposit your funds. Sometimes, the casino will require you to submit certain documents to verify your identity as part of its KYC (Know Your Customer) procedure. These documents may include passports, photos, or some kind of document that verifies your registered address.
