Sign up / registration at the bookmaker - open a betting account
Getting startedSo you have already made the decision to get yourself into betting online and have probably sat around doing some research on the internet and have even maybe coming up with a plan of attack. You should have your betting strategies in place, some nice betting systems to work with and your favoured sites bookmarked where you can stay abreast of the latest sports news relevant to your bets and of course, those all important stats.
There is a lot to do before even thinking about a bet. The next step once you have all that in place is to find an online bookmaker that fits your needs. If you are feeling a pull towards system bets then look for one where the bet slip handles that well. If you are looking for accumulators, look for online bookmakers who offer bonuses or insurance. If you are looking for the Asian Handicap feature for your football betting then make sure that your bookmaker actually offers it, because not all do.
We only recommend bookmakers that live up to the highest standards of quality
Everything ready for the big kick-offSo with everything done, then you need to sign up with the bookmaker of your choice. Open a betting account with your preferred bookmaker by simply clicking on their registration page if you are on their site, or if you are somewhere like on one of the Online-Betting.me.uk pages then you can click through a link. Bookmakers offer unique welcome bonus offers through Online-Betting.me.uk such as enhanced odds sign up offers, so follow links to get the best of those.
Quick and easyIn most cases, you will probably be signed up with a bookmaker in the space of a few minutes. That’s all it takes. You will be presented with a form that will require your basic information. Fill that out and you will be away. When you have your account option, you can then go into your account management and set up your payment and withdrawal methods and get your account funded. Most will accept ewallets, bank deposits, and cards. Use your preferred method but always be aware of any charges which may be accrued for a payment method, as well as processing time. E-wallets are usually the best way, but not all e-wallet deposits qualify for welcome bonus offers (see Bookmaker Payment Options). So find the right route. One other thing to watch for is geo-location. You have to be in a zone where the operator is licensed to be able to bet with them. This really won’t apply if you are located in the UK, but there are country restrictions that bookmakers run.
More is moreRemember that you are not limited to just one online bookmaker. You can have an account with as many different bookmakers as you like. You just can’t have more than one account with the same bookmaker. Why would you want to register with different bookmakers? Because that gives you choice. You can shop around for markets, odds, special promotions and bonuses and other features which you wouldn’t be able to do if you had limited yourself to just one bookmaker.
