Joining a Bookie FAQ

How do I get my winnings?
When you land your first winning golf bet you’re sure to be excited and you’ll be even more excited when you get your winnings paid. It’s really easy too: just log in to your account and withdraw via the “My account” (or similar) tab. Money is usually returned via the same method as the deposit with funds often back in your account within a couple of days.
Is my money safe?
All the sites we work with are regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, have great reputations and can be trusted with your funds and personal details. Most have been around a long time and all are sites we use personally and have never had any issues with.
Do I need a credit card?
Debit card is the best way of funding your account but even if you don’t have a debit or credit card, other options are available. Note that credit cards usually charge interest immediately for gambling transactions but check with your card provider.
Can I have more than one account with a bookie?
You can only have one account at a given online bookmaker and certain other restrictions may apply to accounts at the same address, computer (IP address) or family.
Can I join more than one bookmaker?
Yes, yes and thrice yes! We thoroughly recommend having a few different betting sites in your golf betting armoury so as to maximise the golf offers and free bets you have access to, as well as in order to get the best odds and widest range of golf markets.
Do I need to provide ID?
Most UK customers at most of the big bookies we advise using do not require ID, although under certain circumstances it may be needed, for example if you deposit or withdraw a large sum (due to money laundering regulations) or if your identification cannot be verified vie the electoral register or other publically available means.
How old do I have to be?
Ah, a nice easy question: to gamble in the UK you have to be 18 or above, although if you are from another country you should abide by local laws even if you are placing bets with a UK bookmaker.
