Tips for Beginners at Australian Online Casinos

If you are signing up to an online casino for the very first time, there are some things that you should be aware of. First of all you CANNOT sign up to an online casino if you are under the age of 18 and you cannot open more than one account with an online casino. You need to register an account if you want to play at an online casino and this can be done by filling out the simple online casino application form.

You must provide the casino with personal details such as your name, address (with postcode etc.), phone number (possibly mobile and landline), email address, date of birth, country of residence and your preferred currency. You may also need to create a new username unless one is created for you when your account is activated and you will also need to come up with a memorable password. Your username and your password will be needed each time you want to play at the casino.

As a security precaution, you may also be required to choose from one of several ‘security questions’ such as your favourite pet or your mother’s maiden name and you must supply an answer to this question. Finally, you will be required to check the box that says you are over the age of 18 and that you have read and understood the terms and conditions, privacy & cookie policy and other policies before you can proceed. You may also need to check or uncheck the box that says you would like to be contacted amount the latest promotional offers via email, telephone or SMS etc.

As a newly registered member, you also need to be prepared for the eventuality that the casino will contact you to ask you for a scanned colour copy of your passport or driver’s license, so try to have this information ready and stored on your computer for when the casino’s verification department does contact you and ask you for this information.

You will also have to provide either a recent bank statement (with your current name and address on) or a copy of a recent gas or electricity bill. These documents usually have to be be less than three months old and it is a vital requirement at any online casino today. This info is needed to prove that you are who you say you are and it usually takes no more than 48 hours for the verification process to be completed. If you can’t provide the casino with this basic information, you won’t be able to make any more deposits or withdrawals at the casino and your account is likely to be frozen until you can provide them with these documents.
