Benefits of opening an online betting account

Here are is the step by step guide to help you make a betting account online.

Step1 –identify trusted bookmakers

The first and foremost thing you need to do before making a betting account is to select which company to register.

There are bookmakers which cannot be trusted at all, so you have to be very selective while choosing the right one.

You need to have knowledge of all the rules and regulations, what is applicable to a transaction, ways to deposit money, payout times, and also the minimum and maximum bet amounts.

Go for the known bookmakers that have a good reputation. It’s a good idea to open an account on more than one bookmaker so you can get more free bets.

Step2 –navigate to a bookmaker’s site

After you are done choosing the bookmaker for yourself, you are ready to open your first betting account. It is a very simple process, to be honest. After clicking on the trusted bookmaker’s site, go to their homepage, and you will be able to click on Join now, Bet now or Open a new account.

Step3 –complete registration form

After you are done clicking on open a new account, a registration form will appear. Typically following questions appear which you need to fill correctly.

  • Your name, email address and physical address
  • Date of birth, verify that you are 18 or older
  • Your country of residence
  • Your currency
  • A username and password
  • A security question like your “your pet’s name?”
  • Valid credit card number or payment number

Then come the terms and conditions, after agreeing to them, click on Join now or register now to submit your form.

Step4 –deposit funds

When you are done registering, you need to deposit funds in your account before you can make any bets. You select your own payment method; bookmakers accept recognized credit cards like Visa and MasterCard. If the bookmaker you have registered offers a free bet, you may need to deposit a specific minimum amount, between $5 and $10.

Step5 –place a bet and get your free bet 

Once you have deposited funds, you are free to make bets online. If you want to qualify for free bets, you need to deposit a specified value of bet from your funds.

Now you are ready to bet, so pick the event you want to wish on, and good luck!


Many people go for online betting because it is much safer and easier. Making an account for betting online is also very simple, as discussed above, so you don’t have to worry about it.
