Why do I need to provide ID?
There are three main reasons why gambling companies ask for ID:
- to check you are old enough to gamble
- to check whether you have self-excluded from gambling
- to confirm your identity.
All online gambling businesses must ask you to prove your age and identity before you gamble.
Companies can often match your account with existing information which is stored on databases such as credit referencing agencies and the electoral roll. If this information is not enough you will be asked to provide copies of identification documents.Previous page
