Gambling is a serious matter. Often, novice players do not understand all the responsibility that falls on their shoulders from the moment they register at the online casino. Many do not understand how important verification in a casino is, because leaving their personal data seems very dangerous to them.
It is not known where and to whom they will fall. Verification of identity usually requires the submission of passport details. Depending on the rules of online casinos, others may be required for verification: confirmation of the address of residence, bank statements, scan of the card, etc. It is the data of the credit card that scare all newcomers, but it is necessary to withdraw funds from the online resource.
- The first is to make sure that the player is not a fraudster (bot) registered under non-existent details.
- The second reason is the age of the gamer. The player must be of legal age. According to the laws of many countries, users of virtual gambling clubs must be persons over 18 years of age. A minor will not be able to pick up the winnings - do not make a deposit and hope for a big prize and easy money.
Casino verification: your data is safe
Verification of identity has several advantages: guaranteed withdrawal of funds, protection of your account from hacking scammers. But there is also one big drawback: time. The verification process is complex and lengthy. To confirm your identity, you need the following documents that need to be prepared and edited (if desired, for those who are worried that their personal data will “leak” somewhere):
- Photo or copy of passport. Or a photo of an Identification Card (ID) if you live in the European Union. Important: in good quality. In addition, they may request a copy of the registration page.
- Passport equivalent: driver’s license.
- Confirmation of the address of residence (receipt of payment of utility bills or bank statement). Important: utility bills will not work if the apartment is rented or a friend.
- Confirmation of the payment system (screenshot of the PS with which the account is replenished).
- Bank account.
- Copy / photo of a credit card.
This list of documents is the norm for account verification.
You can understand the thoughts of a novice player when asked to send a copy or photo of a passport. Naturally, it is difficult to show confidence in any Internet resource, including online casinos.
All gambling portals are required to obtain a license, use certified software, and pass legality checks. If you use proven and reliable virtual online casinos, then you should not worry about your personal data. On such sites there is always a license agreement that you can familiarize yourself with.
In all licensed casinos, the personal data of players is stored on secure servers.
Do not pass verification in dubious clubs. Your data may be sold to the "dark side of the Internet" and used for illegal purposes.
There are 3 types of verification:
- Immediately after registration.
- Before depositing / withdrawing a large sum of money.
- If you suspect fraud.
It is better to pass verification in the online casino immediately after registration. Upon completion of the procedure with a request for confirmation of identity, the player’s account is sent for verification.
The following is checked: the IP address from which registration was carried out, the correspondence of passport and payment data, as well as the identification of a duplicate game profile. At the end of the procedure, which usually takes up to 24 hours, the account is confirmed.
If the profile has any problems (duplicate, incorrect data entered, etc.), they refuse to verify or ask to send a photo along with a passport and an individual photo task.
Sometimes you need to confirm your identity several times, most often this happens because the account is used simultaneously from different IP addresses.
Very often, visitors to online casinos encounter such a problem: after a session with a successful outcome, the player wants to withdraw his winnings, but he is refused to withdraw funds. Why?
Everything is simple: game profile is not verified. To avoid this problem, go through an account identity verification.
The simple and main rule of successful verification in online casinos is the absence of duplicate gaming accounts. You cannot have multiple accounts in any virtual resource. It is important to fill out a personal profile with real data, carefully and without errors. In order to correctly pass the verification, study the club rules section. If difficulties arise, contact technical support.
If you are new to the casino and decide to try your luck for the first time, here is a short instruction:
- Select multiple gambling portals. Look at the reviews, all casinos have different returns, different opportunities and conclusions. Choose those establishments that have good reviews and that you like.
1. When entering the official website of any online casino, carefully read the rules and policies of the virtual resource.
2. Before registering, read the license agreement, it must be on a reliable site. If the portal does not have a license, it is not worth registering and even more so verification.
3. Fill the profile with personal data without errors.
4. Use the operator’s help in online chat or by phone to pass verification.
- If you do not have a bank card, be sure to open it or open a bank account (after that you need to request a certificate of its existence from bank employees). The card is tied to an account, therefore, to be sent to a casino, it must be scanned from two sides. For those who have a great deal of mistrust, you can cover up the part of the number on the front side and the 3-digit CVC code on the back.
- Make a color scan or passport photo in good quality. If required, then the registration page. Again, the document number and series can be glossed over.
- Wait for account confirmation.
- Make your first deposit and start playing.
Licensed casinos without verification
Licensed gambling portals exist without verification, but there are very few of them. More often there are virtual services with gambling entertainment, in which a limit on the withdrawal of funds without confirming your identity is entered (up to $ 200-500, depending on the resource). In order to start the game, you only need to confirm your age, for this, as a rule, a check by phone number or e-mail is enough.
Such clubs are well suited for all novice players who are very worried about their personal data. Do not forget that the creation of multiple accounts for quick money is prohibited by the rules. The security service can easily detect the violation using the user's IP address.
Unlicensed online casinos without verification are unreliable: you can simply lose your money. On such resources, when registering, the user is only required to enter a name and a withdrawal path without any confirmation.
In some cases, gambling clubs without documented verification provide confirmation via email and / or phone number. In the first case, a letter is sent to the post office with a link; in the second, an SMS code comes to the mobile, which must be entered on the site. But even such identity verification measures do not guarantee 100% security.
Tip: Therefore, use trusted online casinos and be sure to go through an identity confirmation.
Verification in a casino is a necessary procedure that protects both parties (casinos and users). The owners of a gambling club can not worry about their license and calculate fraudsters, and players are confident that their profile is protected and the win will be withdrawn without problems.
