How to open an account at Betfair?

Betfair app
  • Go to betfair
  • Enter your details
  • Select a deposit option and make your first deposit
  • Validate your account by submitting the required documents


1) Go to betfair

The first step in the simple process of registering with Betfair is not complicated at all. Simply type in the address of the bookmaker’s official website ( Remembering that you can always download the Betfair app, once on the site just click on the black box “Register now” at the top right. This will open an additional page that, in two steps, will require you to enter your details and make your first deposit.

2) Entering data

This second step is decisive in defining your registration at Betfair. First of all, you need to enter your personal data: gender, first and last name, date of birth, town and city, tax code, province of residence and mobile phone number. It is important that you enter all the information requested by the bookmaker step by step and do not make any mistakes, as your complete identity is required for the registration process.

You will then move on to the access data: the site requires an e-mail address to complete access, so you will need to find a password that is complex enough to guarantee security (containing a letter, a number and between 8 and 20 characters and, above all, that does not contain personal information such as your name or e-mail address) and that can be easily memorised so that it is not difficult to retrieve it if you forget it. The security question with the answer included, which is necessary if the password is lost, must then be entered. The name of the father or mother, or even the name of the primary school attended can be a good idea, for example. Once you have set your weekly top-up limit and checked the Privacy and Communication options, you can go to “Step 2”, which is about your first deposit.

3) Select a deposit option and make your first deposit

Once you have completed your registration, the next step is to make your first deposit. As we have already seen, there are many ways to make deposits and they involve the most common means of payment. There are obviously credit or debit cards (Visa, Visa Eletron, MasterCard, PostePay), disposable cards (Kalibra and Soldintasca), the classic Bank Transfer, then Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard and Paypal. It is important to remember that you can register up to a maximum of three different cards and that, for deposits made with prepaid credit cards, it will be necessary to send in advance a copy of the front and back of an identity document and a copy of the front and back of the tax code, in order to complete the registration to the site.

It is also important to point out that not all payment methods will give you the possibility to take advantage of the Welcome Bonus: deposits made by Bank Transfer, Paysafecard, Skrill or Neteller will not be considered valid for the purposes of the initial promotion. The payment method that we recommend, because it remains the most reliable and fast, is by credit/debit card. After entering your card number, security code, expiry date and the name of the cardholder, choose the amount you wish to deposit into your account. Then simply click on the yellow “Deposit” box and you are done.

4) Validate your account by sending the required documents

The last step is to validate the opening of the Gioco Digitale account within 30 days and to send the identity document requested by the betting site. You will be asked for a copy of the document on the back (identity card, passport…) that you can send directly through the site. This step is compulsory and will serve above all to prove that you are of legal age, a necessary condition for being able to bet in Italy. It will also serve to protect your bank details as much as possible. You have several options for sending the documents. In the “Personal Account” section on the home page at the top right, you can use the dark tool to upload the documents. Alternatively, you can send the document by e-mail, taking care not to send attachments of more than 5MB. The documents must be sent within 30 days of opening the account. Otherwise your account will be suspended.
