Setting up a bingo account and making that first deposit isn’t difficult. If you can follow basic instructions, it should only take a few minutes at most.
From the homepage, look for an option that says Join, Register, Sign Up, or something to that effect, and press on it. You’ll see a form with a series of input boxes. These will include things like name, email address, physical address, date of birth, etc.
Fill in each box with the requested information, and be sure to check back over each required field (these will be marked with an (*) asterisk) for accuracy. If any of the information is incorrect, you’re going to come into problems down the line, especially when making a payment, so don’t rush through it.
Note that lying on the registration form is a terrible idea. If you’re not old enough to playing online bingo (i.e. of legal gambling age), don’t bother trying. You will have to verify your identity at some point, and when you do, you’ll be cut off. I assure you this will happen before you get your hands on any winnings.
To play for real money, you’ll need to purchase cards with real money. This means you’ll need to load some cash into your account to buy bingo cards with. And, if you win, you’ll want to cash out those winnings.
Deposits: If you visit the Banking/Cashier section, you’ll see a list of available deposit options. Choose the one that suits you best, then follow the instructions provided. Once you submit he payment, your account should reflect the funds instantly, or within a few moments at most.
Withdrawals: The same steps can be followed to cash out winnings. Visit the Banking/Cashier page, choose your preferred withdrawal method from the list, and follow the instructions. In some cases, the method used to deposit will automatically be set as your preferred withdrawal method. The time it takes to receive your money will depend on the method used. There is generally a 48-hour pending period, followed by a 1-5 day processing period. Read the transaction details prior to submission for a more precise timeline.
If you’ve chosen a reputably licensed online bingo site (as instructed in Step #1 above), you will need to verify your identity at some point. Some sites require verification within 72 hours of account registration. Others require it any time before a withdrawal can be processed. Whatever the case, here’s what you can expect.
You will be asked to provide the operator with a copy of a bank statement and/or utility bill that is in your name (the name you registered with), and addressed to you (the address you registered with). If you deposited with a debit card, you may need to provide a copy of that as well. These documents can usually be faxed or scanned and emailed to the operator. So long as you are who you say you are, and are of legal age to gamble, this should be a sensible and painless experience.
