What information are they going to ask for?
Do players need proof that they reside within the state of New Jersey? How about documentation that proves you are who you say you are?
Is it hard to sign up at a legal NJ casino site?
Online casinos in New Jersey require very little information to set up accounts. They rely on a “know your customer” check to verify players’ identities through public databases, address verification, and credit reporting.
But the truth is, as a player, you don’t need to worry about any of that. New Jersey online casinos have made it incredibly easy for players to get started.
What is the NJ online gambling signup process like?
To illustrate the process, we are going to walk you through the creation of an account on one of New Jersey’s top online casinos: BetfairCasino.com.
When you arrive at its main site, BetfairCasino.com, you will notice a “Join Now” button in the top right-hand corner of your browser window. Simply click this button, and you will be taken to a registration form.
The first bit of information is your standard fare. A valid email address, date of birth, and username are all required. Once that information is entered, click next.
BetfairCasino.com will take you to the “Your Details” tab. At this stage of the registration process, the information you enter must be accurate. If your Social Security Number does not match your name and date of birth, the process will be halted.
If you’ve enter correct information, after agreeing to BetfairCasino.com’s terms and conditions and clicking the “Continue Securely” link at the bottom of the page, you will be allowed to deposit funds into your account.
Once the funds are deposited, you are able to take full advantage of BetfairCasino.com’s exciting casino games.
Is the signup experience similar on all gambling websites in New Jersey?
Click “Join Now” at the top of VirginCasino.com and enter in all the same details as you did for BetfairCasino.com. This time, you can enter a promotional code that will give you a free $20 to try the casino’s software.
After you click “Join Now,” the site will take you to a second registration page where it will ask you to verify that you are over 21. When you click “Send my Documents,” VirginCasino.com or TropicanaCasino.com will instruct you to either send pictures of your documents to a verification email address or transfer the documents via live chat.
They will accept any of the following documents to verify your date of birth:
- Driver’s license
- Military identification
- Any other government-issued photo ID
It takes up to 24-48 working hours to verify any documents, and you will be emailed to confirm that verification.
The process of creating player accounts is similar across all New Jersey casino platforms, and it should be a snap to get you up and running in no time.
Keep in mind that you can create an account from anywhere in the world, but to play for real money online in New Jersey, you must be located within the state.
After your account is verified, the online casinos will confirm your current location using a combination of IP verification and geolocation tracking.
