Making a Deposit with an Online Bookmaker
With some online bookmakers you need to make a deposit to open an account, the majority let you open the account without putting any money in and then you have to find the "account" section to deposit funds.
If you are registering with an online bookmaker who offers a free bet then make sure you check the terms and conditions of qualifying for the free bet as you may need to deposit a specific amount.
The minimum deposit is often around £5 to £10. This money taken from your chosen form of payment method and then shows as a positive account balance in your bookmaker account. No more money is taken from your account so its easy to limit your losses, and of course you are free to withdraw your money whenever you want much in the same way as you deposited it.
Generally bookmakers like to give you your winnings back on the same card or through the same method that you deposited. Sometimes you will be asked to provide details to help the online bookmaker comply with money laundering regulations. Please understand that the online bookmakers are not being difficult, they are simply following guidelines to help comply with money laundering regulations.
Making a bet Online
Once you have money in your bookmaker account you are free to bet up to that amount on any of the bookmakers markets. The minimum amount for a bet is rarely more than £2 and often less.
To place the bet simply select the event you want to bet on and then enter a stake and click on a button to enter your bet. You will normally then be presented with a confirmation page or betting slip allowing you to confirm or cancel the bet.
