Why bookmaker ask to verify my Identity?
There are 2 reasons that make the bookmakers ask you to verify your identity:
– bookmaker suspect your account is a fake person
Example: When 2 accounts use same IP (same computer).
– First time withdrawal process
Verify your identity is also to protect yourself. Unlike physical betting shop look only your age and money, online bookmaker need security themselves as well as their customer.
How does verify identity work?
Once you request your online bookie to withdraw money from your account, you will get an email asking you to send them the documents by email or fax.
The required documents usually are: copy of ID Card, Driver license, passport, recent utility bill that show your name and address, credit card… If you don’t have any of these bill that has your name on it, you may need to explain to your bookmaker. They may give
possibility for you to use a letter from your bank instead of those bill. There is no way to avoid verification but you can do it faster and easier.
Tips to verify identity faster
First step: prepare all required document in advance. As mention above the document bookmaker ask you for are copy of ID Card, Driver license, passport, recent utility bill that show your name and address, credit card… So before you think of withdrawal money, why not collect these document of yours, scan them or take picture save in a safe folder. When you receive email for verification you can send them back directly.
Second Step: make your first withdrawal small amount. Most of the bettor deposit small amount the first time for trying the bookmaker system as well as to try to win big. The bookmaker can suspect you when they see you deposit small suddenly win big and withdraw all money same time. First bet should be small, make sure you done all requirement rollover if you use the bonus, then make a small withdraw. Then you can play big next to win big next.
*Note: Online bookmakers have networks and methods to catch the cheater. So try not to cheat one of them, or they may share the banned player among bookmakers themselves that they won’t let you play again.
