How to open a betting account online

Fill out a few basic details to open a betting account.

Easy tips for registering an online betting account

You’ve been to betting shops in the past to place bets and are now ready to take the plunge and register an online account? How can this be done?

As you might expect, bookmaker websites tend to facilitate the opening of new accounts as they drum up business. Upon visiting a site, there will usually be a link saying “click here to register” which takes you to a registration page.

You will need to submit some basic details when opening a betting account. These include:

  • Name 
  • Postal Address
  • Email Address 
  • Telephone Number
  • Date-of-Birth
  • Payment information

Bookmakers need this information to set you up with a betting account. You must be 18 years or over to place a bet in the UK, while payment information means using a credit or debit card to make a deposit (this card can also be used to make withdrawals).

Many bookmakers offer new customers a free bet when they register a new account so it’s worth making sure that you qualify for any welcome bonus to get you off to the best possible start when it comes to online betting.

Online betting is super convenient!

Having an online betting account is brilliantly convenient which means you can place bets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, rather than having to wait for a betting shop to open. You can bet in the comfort of your own home and a wager can be placed in a matter of seconds after logging in.

You can only have one account per bookmaker although it’s possible to have several accounts across different bookie websites. For starters, we recommend you choose a bookmaker site such as bet365, Ladbrokes or Paddy Power, all of whom are respected brand names that offer new customers a generous free bet.

The registration process generally takes a few minutes which means you can place a bet almost instantaneously, although you might need to submit additional information with some operators when it comes to proof of address or date-of-birth.

Unique username and password

Once you have registered with a particular bookmaker, you will then have a username and password which can be used to log into your account. Your registered card can be used to make deposits and withdrawals, although there is also the chance to add additional cards to your account.
