How to deposit money

Step by step guide on how to deposit

1 Register account

First, make sure you have a registered and verified sportsbook or casino account. You can read more about how to register your account in our sportsbook and casino account registration guide

2 Click on the deposit button

Once logged in to your sportsbook or casino account you will somewhere (usually at the top right corner) see a DEPOSIT button. Click that button and you will be sent over the deposit section. 

3 Select a payment method

Before selecting your payment method you should consider a few things. It is important to do this because you might not be able to withdraw money using the same banking option, some payment methods have lower maximum deposit amounts, there might be restriction regarding the promos you can claim. 

All payments options offered should be considered as safe but make sure to verify the terms for the banking option you decide. 

4 Select amount to deposit

The first deposit amount matters for many reasons and to maximize your first deposit value you should always look at the promo terms for the sportsbook or casino your are making the deposit at. 

Example: If the bonus is 100% up to $1000 on your first deposit, we would advise you to make a $1000 first deposit. This would trigger the full bonus of $1000 and would result in you having a bankroll of $2000. 

Since the bonus is triggered only on your 1st deposit it would be a pity to make a big 2nd or 3rd deposit as it would not trigger and bonus money. Our advise to you - Always choose a bonus where you feel comfortable of maxing the bonus value.
