Age / Identity verification of UK Players

All regulated operators are required to carry out checks to prevent identity theft, fraud and to confirm that customers are old enough to gamble.


As it is a requirement that all customers are verified, the process will start when all new accounts are registered and also take place periodically during the lifetime of an account, this is so that we can ensure the data we hold is accurate and up to date. Until verification is successfully completed, you will not be able to deposit, bet, or access any gambling products (real money or free play).


In most cases the checks are fully automated but in some circumstances we may require additional information. In these instances, the checks are carried out by certified 3rd party identity checking companies, so you may see a message that asks you to verify your account by uploading documents.


Depending on the type of checks we need to complete, different types of documents are accepted, this includes (but is not limited to)


Valid photocard driving license (matching address)

Valid passport (photo page only)

Valid ID card (front and back)

Bank/Savings account Statement (issued in the last 3 months)

Issue letter from a credit/debit or pre-paid card (issued in the last 3 months)
