Signing up for an online casino account

The process for signing up for a new real money account at an online casino is quick and easy, with a few simple steps that need to be completed, and these are the same whether you want to play using the free casino software or in Instant Play.

If you’re signing up using a special bonus or promotion code, like the ones that we sometimes offer here, then you’ll need this when you register to be able to claim the special offer. Also, as you complete the signup process, you might sometimes be asked to check a box to confirm that you want to receive the Welcome Bonus that’s on offer — keep an eye out for this, as you don’t want to miss the opportunity to play with some of the casino’s money for free!

The steps you need to complete to begin playing may vary a little, but generally speaking you can expect the process to go like this:

  • to start with, create a username and password
  • link your account to a valid email address, which you’ll need to confirm
  • check the box saying that you’ve read and accept the site’s T&Cs
  • enter your full name, home address and a contact mobile number

It’s important that all of this information is accurate and complete. This is because, due to money laundering prevention measures, you will need to provide a range of ID when you come to make your first withdrawal, and if the info you provide at this time doesn’t match that which you gave when your registered, getting your cash out becomes a lot more complicated. Therefore, to avoid hassles later on, make sure that everything you say at this stage is entirely accurate.

How to make deposits and withdrawals

If you’ve ever done any online banking, paid a bill or made a purchase online, then depositing and withdrawing from your casino account will be pretty easy, as the process is quick and straightforward. The sites we list all offer players a range of methods for depositing and withdrawing funds, and so you should always be able to find one that is convenient and accessible.

Depending on the payment method you use and the casino you play at, the actual number of steps in the process may vary a little, but you can usually expect it to go like this:

  • log in to your casino account
  • click the ‘Banking’ tab
  • click the ‘Deposit’ button
  • a drop down menu will give you the available options; choose the payment method you want to use
  • enter the log in and account details that you’ve set up for that payment method (ideally, different to your casino log in)
  • enter the amount you want to deposit
  • click on ‘Deposit’

None of the sites that we recommend charge you a fee for making a deposit, and most payment methods that our casinos accept will credit funds to your casino account immediately — this includes PayPal and other electronic fund transfer systems, e-wallets, and credit and debit cards (including virtual cards). Direct bank transfers and online banking can take longer, anywhere up to 3 working days depending on your bank.

Making a withdrawal is likewise very easy, although the process is generally slower and, at least with your first withdrawal request, you’ll need to provide several forms of ID that the casino will accept before your payment is processed, which can slow things down further. It’s also important to know that not every method that can be used for deposits is available for withdrawals.

Generally speaking, the withdrawal process is:

  • log into your casino account
  • click the ‘Banking’ tab
  • select ‘Withdrawal’
  • enter the withdrawal method you want to use from a drop-down menu
  • enter the amount you wish to withdraw
  • click on ‘Withdraw’

Most online casinos have a processing period of between 24-48 hours before your funds become available (during which time you can reverse the process), although an increasing number of sites, once you have provided sufficient proof of your identity, are offering a quicker service.

Once your withdrawal request has been processed, how quickly you can get your hands on your cash depends on the method you use. With e-wallets and PayPal, your money is usually available immediately; with direct bank transfer, it can take between 3-5 working days; if you receive your funds via bank cheque, this can take up to 10 working days (and there may be additional delivery time on top).
