If you want to play at an online casino, the first thing you should do is to go through a simple registration procedure. You do not need to look for tips on the Internet or contact specialists to find out how to do it. It's very simple.
First, you need to go to the official website of the online casino you plan to play at. On the homepage, find a button or a sign that says "Sign up/Registration". This inscription is usually in plain sight or the center of the site.
Some casinos offer to register right when you are taken to the website. Others offer to play the demo version of a casino, which is absolutely free. Besides, lots of gaming establishments on the Internet offer customers to download the casino on PCs and install software to start the game.
Those who want to play for money must register on the casino's official website.
Here are the main reasons to sign up:
In today's digital world, security comes first. Especially when it comes to finances and personal data. And considering that users come here to play for real money, the administration tries to protect itself from fraudsters who use someone else's bank cards or accounts and criminals involved in "money laundering".
2) The opportunity to play for money
The financial policy requires all payment transactions to be made through a secure channel. Modern casinos present this channel only to registered users. If you want to play for real money, you will have to register anyway.
3) Participation in promotions and loyalty programs
Most casinos try to incite their players. For this purpose, the administration offers loyalty programs and promotions, as well as tournaments and drawings of prizes. If a player is not signed up, the casino will not be able to contact him/her if necessary. How will he/she know about promotions or drawings then?
4) Personal interaction between the administration and the player
Aside from incentive systems, users often receive "personal" gifts. For instance, on Birthdays or anniversaries of registration. As is the case with the previous paragraph, this is only possible for registered players.
Today online casinos offer two ways to register - fast (simple) registration and thorough (average) registration. Fast registration will allow you to make a deposit and start playing for real money right away, but you will still need to pass the full registration procedure to withdraw the winnings.
Most gaming institutions on the Internet provide the customers with the opportunity to register using accounts in social networks. If you decide to register through the social network, all you have to do is click on the corresponding button, and you will immediately enter the casino.
In this case, your account will be linked to a social network profile. The casino will automatically draw some personal information (name, e-mail address, sometimes the phone number) from the social network profile; the rest of the data you will have to enter yourself.
Simple registration also includes registration by e-mail
To simplify the registration procedure, some online casinos offer a short form including only username (nickname), e-mail address, and password to access the website. After that, an e-mail with an activation code or an activation link is sent to the specified e-mail address. Therefore, you should also specify a real, valid e-mail address since the casino will send an activation letter to it.
If you are going to make payment transactions with bank cards or Internet wallets, be sure to provide your real data. This way, you can not only deposit money into an account but also withdraw your winnings.
You can specify more detailed information about yourself after registration.
For simple registration, you need to find a button or link offering to start registration and click on it. In the window that appears you need to enter your personal data.
These data often include:
- • sex indication
- • full name
- • actual date of birth
- • existing e-mail address
- • postal address
- • city, country, zip code
- • phone number
- • your desired username and password, which you will need to enter twice.
By the way, entering this information is very important. When a player wants to withdraw the winnings for the first time, the security service of the gaming website often asks for a scanned copy of your passport and will check if your personal data matches the ones you entered during registration. It's done to prevent money laundering.
If you come to the casino just to play and specify true data, you have nothing to worry about.
When all fields are filled in, you will see the button "Create account", "Register" or something like that at the bottom.
Remember that some fields in the registration form are not mandatory.
Then go check your e-mail and find there a letter from the casino, congratulating you on successful registration. Open it and see the activation code (or just the link) needed to activate your account.
The detailed instructions will be in the letter. Activate your game account by following these instructions.
If activation takes place via the phone, the code will be sent by SMS.
That's it! The gaming account will be activated and you will become a full online casino player.
After the registration procedure, you can play for real money and withdraw winnings.
Now you can try registering in online casinos yourself.
