Everything you need to know before creating an account at an online casino

We had to wait a while for it, but since 1 October 2021 it has been possible to gamble at Dutch online casinos. Under strict conditions and under the watchful eye of the KSA (Kansspelautoriteit), the first 10 providers were given the green light to offer online gambling last year. Meanwhile, the counter already stands at 17 casinos and more will be added this year. This means that, as a player, you have plenty of choice to play your favourite casino game. Betting on sports, a game of blackjack or exciting video slots, it is all possible at these legal providers. However, before you start playing, you will need to create an account at the online casino. In this article, we'll tell you everything you need to know before you register, so you know exactly what to expect!

Creating an account at an online casino

Although most online casinos allow you to try out free demo versions of games, you will have to wager real money to have a chance of winning a nice cash prize. To do this, you first need to create an account at the online casino. The KSA sets strict requirements that casinos must adhere to if they want to keep the licence. Players' identities must be verified and bank and address details must be known. They also check whether players are registered with the CRUKS (Central Registration Bureau for Exclusion of Gambling). This prevents players with a gambling problem from still being able to register at a casino.

Creating your casino account in a few steps

The order of the sign-up process at online casinos may vary from provider to provider. Usually, you go through the following steps:

  • Choose a reliable online casino

  • Fill in your personal details

  • Upload your identification

  • Set your limits (such as maximum deposit limit and maximum play time)

  • Choose a secure payment method and make your first deposit

  • Play your favourite casino games!

How to choose a trustworthy casino?

As mentioned earlier, there are 17 providers you can legally gamble at. With so much choice, you may wonder which casino is the best to create an account at. While some players are hot for an extensive live casino offering, others are looking for an extensive sportsbook. To find the best online casinos to suit your playing habits, it is advisable to read several casino reviews. That way, you will know exactly what games the sweepstakes business online casino offers and whether they have a nice welcome bonus in store for you.

What information do you need to register?

Creating an account is not rocket science, but you have to take some time. You will need to fill in various details and provide documents to verify your identity. Make sure you fill in all the details correctly and completely, as they will be checked. Among the information requested during the registration process are the following:

  • Name, date of birth and address details

  • Photo of the front and back of an identification document (passport, ID or driving licence is possible, as long as there is a BSN number on it)

  • Bank details (must be in the player's name)

  • Fast data verification with iDIN

IDIN stands for IDentification and Login. This is an online identifier that allows you to easily confirm your identity. You log in to your own online banking environment, where your details are known. Just as you are used to from iDEAL payments, you scan the QR code via desktop or enter your personal PIN on the mobile app to confirm. This allows the casino to see your personal details, such as your age and address, immediately. Since the same protected environment is used as the Dutch banks, you can count on your data being provided in a secure manner.

Choose the right welcome bonus

The legalisation of online gambling, created a whirlwind of casino advertisements and lures in the form of welcome bonuses. The billboards along the motorway enticing you to make a 'transfer' (Betcity), ads "Yes,yes, Batavia (now Kansino)!" and Ellie Lust addressing gambling enthusiasts for Holland Casino to live exciting, not reckless. To attract new players, online casinos need to know how to raise their heads above the ground. One way they do this is by offering welcome bonuses.

When creating an account, pay close attention to which welcome bonus you select. There are always conditions attached, such as playing the bonus amount X times before it is released. Welcome bonuses can also include free spins or a free sports bet, so choose the right welcome bonus that will benefit you the most!
