    Hi. I've been requested to supply notarised copies of ID and proof of address after requesting a withdrawal. I sent my passport and proof of address to the casino and they were approved but a day later I received and email requesting a notarised document. I haven't come across this before with any other casino or seen it mentioned on the forums. I've done some research to find a local company but they charge £180 an hour and say it can take up to an hour to complete, has anybody got advice on where to get it done at a cheaper price or maybe past experience? I live in Cardiff, Wales.

    Don't want to name them yet, does it help to know the casino? I've got a feeling that this might not end well after my chat with their support, not the most helpful.

    Wow, that much really? Our great aunt was a notary and I am sure around here it is only a few dollars.

    I would be asking some questions.

    You may want to look through the I-gaming reps list. Maybe they have a rep on this forum you can contact.

    http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/showroster.php

    It has happened several times in the past that we have seen cases regarding smaller Playtech based casino that have asked for notarized documents. Do a search for "Notarized" and some relevant threads will probably pop up (I think it is spelled with a "z")

    Thanks Rainmaker. I've contacted the rep on here and they said to comply with the request. I will search for the two types of spelling of the word.

    I don't see that it would take that long. Show your ID, they look at the doc's and notarize. This can be done in less than 3 or four mins.. IMO.

    Here in the US I just go to the bank, they know me though, they stamp and sign the doc's and it's free.

    If you have a bank account, go to your bank.

    Very expensive in the UK.
    There are some very interesting online alternatives.
    Looks like you scan your documents, connect via webcam to a notary and they then notarise the docs for you.

    Whatever will they think of next? Hoverboards I hope!

    Thanks Andy - I've found a company that does it online and is valid in the US, not sure about the UK. Will contact the rep to see if it's valid.

    I think there are some alternatives that could be explored with the casino.

    Here in Canada you can get a certified true copy for far less than the cost of notarizing one. There is also an affidavit that can be sworn, many public officials can take your oath, and main branches of banks will usually have one that will do it for customers for free.

    See if perhaps the casino would be satisfied with a Skype conversation with you showing your documents on camera in real time.

    If you win is in the 10s of thousands though, I'd just go get the notarized copy. Before you plunk down your money though, make sure the notary you choose is acceptable to them, or ask them to choose one near you. I think I've read a thread where a casino was not happy with the notary someone chose.

    Here is the list of the notaries public in England and Wales: You must register/login in order to see the link., you should be able to find someone who will do it for less. It should definitely not take an hour.

    I would also like to know what casino you're talking about? Seems like a lot of unnecessary hassle just to make you reverse your withdrawal.

    Are you certain you are talking about notarisation, not simply certification by a solicitor or similar?

    Thanks for this, I can see a few in the Cardiff area. I've also found an online company from the America that uses a webcam to notarise documents but it's only valid in America, I've contacted the casino rep on here to ask if they will accept it. I've also contacted by Bank and they stopped doing this a couple of years ago.

    I'm surprised you're being asked at all, as being a UK citizen this is rare, and if it was a UK casino too then I am very surprised.
    Of course if the win is big then this is often a tactic used to get you to reverse it - we've all seen the film 'Casino' lol..

    Do the casinos know what they are talking about? Some casinos, when asked what notarisation entails, have detailed the latter, which is much cheaper. These "certified copies" can be done for £5 each, and all it involves is the solicitor (or a clerk) using the office photocopier to produce copies and annotating said copies with the firm's seal.

    I suspect the full works requires the swearing of oaths etc, and this is where the quote for £180 came from.

    Shouldn't be that expensive. Usually Banks can help you out with notarising as well. If you're a customer, some banks do not charge for it, otherwise it's usually just some small fee (like €5).

    I've had a quote for £60 and should be getting it done tomorrow. I've yet to have a reply from the rep on here regarding the online webcam website, I'll just go ahead with a local solicitor.
