Often bookmakers verify the identity of the player. This can happen at the time of registration on the website or at the request of the administration of the bookmaker’s office.
The purpose of the event is to exclude participation in betting by persons under the age of majority, as well as players using various fraudulent schemes.
As a rule, the client is required to provide a scanned or photographic copy of several pages of the passport (first, second, residence permit).
The image in the picture should be clear.
All corners of the document should be viewed. Copies must be sent only in the format specified on the bookmaker’s website.
Sometimes, for a more thorough check, it is required to send a photo of the passport pages against the background of the client’s face.
In some cases, they will be asked to provide other identity documents and the correctness of the place of residence. These include fresh copies of utility bills, stamped postal envelopes indicating the address and recipient, a bank statement on the availability of a valid account.
There is another way to check – personal communication with the client via Skype.
Timely verification is extremely important, and first of all for the client. Compliance with all the rules will facilitate and accelerate the withdrawal of the won funds from the deposit in the bookmaker’s office to the card or electronic accounts of the player.
