Know Your Customer verification process

Why do I need to verify the account?

We need to ensure that we're in line with our licensing and legal requirements and that we've documented proof from our players of their age, identity, and address. This process is known as "Know Your Customer"(KYC) checks.

As a regulated gambling operator, we need to ensure that all gaming activity on our site:

  • Is fair and safe
  • It is not linked to criminal activity.
  • It is in line with customer profiles and our understanding of their activity.

This process is similar to opening a bank account and collecting customer information for identification and verification purposes.

We use electronic checks to confirm players' identities and ages. Unfortunately, we can't validate 100% of our customers electronically, and in these cases, you'll need to send us KYC documents.

What documents can I send?

As proof of Identity (ID), one of the following current and valid documents are acceptable:

  • Passport

  • National ID card (front and back)
