What is KYC and How To Verify Your UK Casino Account

kyc know your customer
Completing a ‘know your customer’ procedure is now a requirement for online casinos in the UK. Here we will explain what this is, what it means and what you have to do to complete it before you can play online casino games.

KYC Verification of Your Casino Account

Casinos in the UK are mandated by law to conduct age verification and KYC (Know Your Customer) checks as online gaming providers. All of this is to ensure the safety of both the casinos and their players.

They must be able to positively identify customers and ensure that they are at least 18 years old before they can start playing at casinos in the UK, or claim a No Deposit Bonus.

By going through the KYC process, a casino can ensure that its players receive the best possible service.

How To Complete a KYC Verification at a UK Casino

As part of our KYC procedure, you’ll be required to upload a photo to prove your identity.

An image of your ID, such as a passport or driver’s licence, is required (both sides).

Recent photo ID as evidence of residence: Within the last three months, either a bank statement or a utility bill.

Depending on how you want to deposit, you may need to provide additional documentation here.

Method of Payment

Using a debit card

Take a picture of your credit card (both sides). Only the first 6 and the last 4 digits of the card number should be visible for safety reasons. The CVV code on the back of the card must be covered up at all times.


A bank statement with IBAN and the account holder’s name and other important information should be photographed or printed out.

Money Transfer through a Financial Institution

Take a picture or print a screenshot of your bank statement to reveal the account holder’s name and IBAN number.
