How do I register at PocketWin Casino?
Registering is quick and easy. You can either do it through the PocketWin website, or download the PocketWin Slots app. In the app, go to the main menu, click register, and you’ll be asked to start a quick registration process (verifying your age, choosing a username and a private access code, and accepting the terms and conditions). Once the registration is complete, you will not need to go through the registration process again.
How does PocketWin verify my identity?
PocketWin Casino maintains a strict no underage gambling policy. All PocketWin players must verify their age, identity and address before they are able to play our games. We will automatically attempt to confirm a new player’s details electronically upon registration, for example via a third party identity check. If this is unsuccessful, the player will be asked to verify their details using other methods, for example providing photo ID. Players cannot access or play any games until identity verification is complete.
Will I have to send any ID?
As of the 7th of May 2019, UK Gambling Commission regulations state that UK gambling operators must verify every player’s identity to prove they are over the age of 18 before allowing them to play any games. This means that we are legally required to verify your name, address and date of birth and may need to ask for and review photo ID before we can allow you to access our games. There is information on how to send your ID under ‘How do I send in my ID?’ in this FAQ section.
As part of our obligations under a licence issued by the UK Gambling Commission, we are required to conduct on-going due diligence checks at some point during the lifetime of an account. We may request additional information from players for security reasons or to re-verify the specific details registered and deposit methods used.
Once we have received and approved your ID, your winning payment will be processed via your chosen withdrawal method in 1 working day.
What documents will you request from me?
We may just need to ask you to provide some ID, such as a passport, driving licence or other recognised government issued documents.
We take security very seriously and check all IDs manually to ensure 100% accuracy.
Occasionally we may have to request additional ID to ensure details we hold on your account are accurate, that we are paying winning payments to the correct person and that deposits have not been made by unauthorised third parties.
We are also required by law, via licensing conditions and codes to carry out various security checks to safeguard against money laundering and other criminal practices.
In some cases we may need to ask you to provide us with documents as part of our Enhanced Due Diligence process such as proof of the payment method used and source of wealth. We ask for this information as one of our licence requirements to pro-actively engage in initial and on-going due diligence checks.
We have a responsibility to mobile network providers and contract holders to make sure we verify details of mobile phone used to make deposits. We may ask you to provide proof of ownership of the mobile contract or proof of the bills being paid. This is part of our obligation with the mobile phone providers as we do have a duty of care to them with regards to deposits that have been made.

Please ensure that any documents you do send are in date, include who the document is from, have the correct name and address, and are clear and easy to read. There is information on type of documents we may request under “What document do I need to send ….” In this FAQ Section.
What if I don’t give you the information/documentation requested?

If you are unsure about charges, we recommend connecting to the internet through Wi-Fi or contacting your service provider.

Is it possible to play for free?
If you are 18 or over, our games are available to play for free in demo mode. Your account must have been verified to ensure that you are over 18, and you’ll need to be logged into your account before you can access demo mode. Of course, you won’t be able to win real money by playing in this way. In order to play for free, select ‘Demo’ in the game main menu.
Are the games fair?
Yes! All PocketWin games are independently tested and verified by laboratories approved by the UK Gambling Commission.
Why did I not receive my free registration bonus?
The free registration bonus is only available when you create your first and only account with PocketWin. If you’ve held an account with us before, you won’t be able to receive it again. You’ll also need to have completed the sign-up process and activated and verified your account before you’ll receive your welcome bonus. If neither of these tips help, please contact customer support – they’ll be able to look into your account and see what’s going on.
I have not received my bonus for referring a friend.
There are a few reason why this might be the case. If your friend is already registered with us or you have referred yourself then you will not receive the refer a friend bonus. Your friend will also need to have made their first deposit and staked this through before you’ll receive a bonus. Finally, we are required to run various security checks whenever a new player signs up, such as age verification checks. You won’t receive the bonus for referring a friend until your friend’s account has passed all of these security checks. If you still need help with this, please contact customer support.
How do I login to the casino?
You can login to your account via the website, using the ‘Login’ button on the homepage. Alternatively, you can login via the PocketWin Slots app or through standalone apps like PocketWin Bingo or Roulette.

What wagering requirements do I need to meet before I can withdraw bonus winnings?
All of our generous bonuses have a wagering requirement of 40x. This means that the bonus amount you receive must be wagered through 40 times before it is eligible for withdrawal.
For example, if you receive £10 in bonus credit, you must wager £400 before that bonus is withdrawable.
In the case of free spins, the 40x wagering requirement is applied to anything you win from these spins. For example if you spun in a £10 win from a free spin, you would need to wager that £10 40x (£400) before it is eligible for withdrawal.
There are no wagering requirements on any funds you deposit into your account, so you are free to withdraw any unspent deposit.
