When you are ready to register with an online casino, a few personal details are usually asked of you to ascertain whether you are a resident of a specific area/nation and whether you have crossed the legal age to gamble. These details also help to keep your account and deposit amounts secured against any kind of online fraud. The common details that are asked of you are: name, date of birth, sex, email address, cell number, address, betting currency, username, password and security question.

You can select the desired mode of payment and find out if there is a time limit within which a deposit has to be made. Also find out the charges that are applicable. You can then proceed to give account details, transfer the amount and then confirm.
Any online casino would allow you to play once these formalities are completed and the deposit amount has been cleared. Your account will by then be fully functional.
