Getting Started Playing Pokies at Online Casinos

If you have never signed up to an online casino, registering for the first time can be quite daunting for some players. The great thing about these online casinos is that when you are getting started and learning the games, they are usually available in the free play mode, meaning there is no actual risk while you figure out how to play them.

The registration process is easy. The online application form  will take just a couple of minutes to complete and providing you enter the correct details, the casino will then independently verify your information and within minutes your new account will be activated.

Getting Started Playing Pokies at Online Casinos

The first step to signing up with an online casino is to register an account with them. You won’t have to register with them just to browse through the website and view what’s on offer. You only have to sign up when you want to start paying in the real cash mode. This registration form is an online application form that shouldn’t take any more than five minutes to fill out.

You will have to enter personal details such as your full name and date of birth, your current address (only one account per household is the general rule), a new username and unique password, your preferred deposit/withdrawal methods, email address and other similar information. This will then be verified by the website, which will activate your account.

If for some reason you have entered the wrong details, the account will simply not activate, or when it has opened, you can change the details in the My Profile or My Account section. While you are actually filling out this online application form, you can install the download client in the background at the same time. They should be completed at approximately the same time (in less than five minutes).

The software is easy to install, providing you follow the on-screen instructions. Check that the program is from a verified publisher, select the language and then once this casino has been installed, you will be able to access the casino via your desktop, rather than having to go online and visit the casino website each time.

Having access from your desktop saves a great deal of time each time you want to play on your favourite casino game, plus certain information is stored such as transaction history and account activity, so you can always check what you have won or lost etc.

Usually when you sign up for the first time, you will be able to make a deposit instantly. The funds should appear immediately and if you have done everything correctly you should also receive your welcome bonus, whether it is a deposit match or a no deposit match. You could also be playing in an online casino that has a one hour free play bonus, but details of how to use and fully benefit from the sign up bonus will be explained in the terms and conditions, which you should take a few minutes to digest mentally.
