Hi guys!

I was wondering if there's some sort of a standard list of documents which online casinos require from you for withdrawal?
I'm asking because I would like to avoid casinos which ask for too much personal information and stick with the ones who make it easier for me on the document side, if this is not the case.

Thanks!

yes, the standard docs they will usually ask for are

Valid, in date passport / Drivers licence

Proof of address, council tax bill / bank statement / other official document dated within last three months

Proof of payment, photo of debit card (back and front) possibly ewallet if you use one (skrill/Neteller)

Hope this helps

Requesting Docs when you havent won.

Some casinos seem to believe that they can request personal information when you haven't requested a withdrawl. Now if you are purchasing using credit card maybe they have some excuse to ask, but if your using facilities like Paysafe or Skill then id tell them to get stuffed. I'm getting a little tired of casinos demanding my personal, private information without cause. And mobile number spamming should be an option or set to OFF as default. Ive spent 3 weeks trying to stop mobile spam from Crazy Vegas.

Also be aware that some casinos do perform 'soft' searches with Credit Reference Agencies such as Experian and Equifax to identify you. These searches should not and do not show up when other companies perform a 'credit' check on you.

Also keep in mind that there is new legislation coming up in 2017 that will require casinos operating in the EU to request proof of where your deposited funds came from.

Obey.

3 options here when KYC docs are requested:

- some ask straight after registration
- some ask after you submitted the first withdrawal
- some ask only when your total withdrawals exceed EUR/GBP/$ 2,300

Either way the 3 previously mentioned documents should always suffice.

- Copy of ID
- proof of address
- proof of payment source (CC or Webwallet).

Only if you ask for a bank transfer for your withdrawal then you will have to submit proof that the account is yours.

Any decent, reputable operator will verify you through open source - at least to a level that satisfies regulatory requirements.

At the point where you spend a certain amount (quite alot...), they will require evidence to prove who you are. Many see your first withdrawal as a way of tackling this earlier on than necessary. Old rules used to dictate at the point you pay back to a player you must have them verified in this way - not so much anymore, but many haven't bothered changing their processes.

At the very top end of the scale, they'll start asking questions about how you fund the account. Income, source of wealth, sustainability etc.

All perfectly reasonable questions from an online operator in the age of the UKGC. They're treating online gambling no differently to land based that deals with large volumes of cash.

My 2 cents - if you have nothing to hide then you shouldn't be concerned. It's not like they pass the information on to anyone, they just have to make the UKGC happy if they start poking their noses around.

Actually not a dumb idea, depending on how it is implemented. That is if the goal is to reduce the damage caused by problem gamblers. But if all casino operators are going to do this themselves it might be a bit problematic. IMO it would be better to licence a few providers of payment-solutions, and require that they do the checking.
