Part 1: Creating your Winamax account in 3 steps
Step 1: Create your Winamax account
This is the basic sign-up formula. Here you provide us with your email address, date of birth, table name and password.
Once you have completed this step, it is possible to play on the play money tables.
Step 2: Real money account activation
Here you will have to provide additional information, including place of birth, postal address and bank account information. All of these fields are required by our regulator and are in place to keep poker safe and secure, by preventing people from making false accounts which can be used for illicit activities.
Please note, that by entering your bank account information, your bank account will not be deducted. This is simply a control to make sure that you are who you say you are.
Once you compete this step you may play on the real money tables, including our daily freeroll tournaments.
Step 3: Make a deposit
This step provides you multiple options to make a deposit onto your Winamax account.
When you make your first deposit, you will automatically be credited with your first deposit bonus of up to €500!
Part 2: Finalizing your account in 2 steps
Finalizing your account is a form of identity check that is designed to make sure you are who you say you are. This process is required by our regulator and you must complete it if you want to withdraw your winnings. It takes place over 2 steps, that are really not that hard to do.
You can still play on Winamax while you are completing this process.
Step 1: Identity check
The identity check requires you to send us a copy of a valid ID (passport, national ID card or EU driver’s license) and a proof of bank account ownership (i.e. a bank statement or any document from your bank containing your first and last names and Swift/BIC number). You have 30 days to send us your documents. If you do not do so in time, your account will be suspended and you will be unable to play. So send them right away!
KEEP IN MIND: Your first and last names must exactly match those submitted when you registered with Winamax.
Sending us your documents is very simple. You can either scan a them or take a photo with your mobile phone. You have 3 options to send:
– Upload them from the “My Account” area of the Winamax website
– Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
– Send them to us by snail mail
Winamax has a 24 support team which will quickly check and validate your documents.
You may still play while your identity is being checked!
Step 2: Activation code
The moment your documents have been validated, a letter containing an activation code will be sent to the postal address provided when you registered with Winamax. This final step allows us validate your postal address.
The letter should arrive at your home a few days after you completed your identity check. All you have to do is enter the code provided in this letter the next time you log into the Winamax software.
