Lots of support for mobile
Good bonuses for new users
In this post, we walk you through Betfair registration and login, discuss their bonus offerings, and any potential problems that might run into during the registration process.
Betfair is one of the world's oldest online sportsbook. It was founded by Andrew Black and Edward Wray in 2000 and had been catering to punters and casino goers ever since. The founders of Betfair revolutionized sports betting as a whole by allowing bettors to set the odds for sports matches. Betfair is licensed on the London Stock exchange, valued over 2 billion, and has its own in house casino. It’s restricted in numerous countries, but luckily, the Philippines is not one of them.
Betfair Sign-up and Registration is fairly simple to get through despite how daunting it might initially appear. They are very thorough in their information gathering and will demand everything from your mother's maiden name to your physical address. Don't panic or get too concerned. They're only asking for all this information to confirm that you are who you say you are. They can also use that information to track you down just in case they might need to settle a dispute in the future.
The registration process for desktop and mobile users are nearly identical with a few differences. Registration for both mobile and desktop users can be completed in three simple steps.
Step 1: Locating the register or join button
For browser users, you will find the ‘Join Now' button on the top right corner of the Betfair site. It's right next to the ‘Login' button, so you can't miss it.
For mobile users, you’ll find the Register button on the front page of the Betfair application.
Step 2: Filling out the extensive forms
After clicking on the register button, both mobile and desktop will find a form page requesting user data. You will be asked to provide the following information:
- First and last name
- Date of birth
- Country of origin
- Mobile number
- Place of birth
- Security question and answer
- Betfair Account Currency (note that you won’t be able to change it at a later date.)
- Deposit limit frequency
- Deposit limit amount
- Referral bonus (which is automatically filled.)
- You will need to tick two boxes that allow Betfair to send advertisements to you.
Once you’ve filled out all your boxes, read the terms and conditions, then click on the join now button.
Step 3: Verify your Betfair account
After completing sign-up Betfair services are mostly available to you. You can browse their casino and sportsbooks services. You could also view live matches, place bets, and even interact with other punters. The only thing you can’t do is withdraw. Betfair, like every fair and safe online gambling business, confirms your identity before processing your withdrawal. The policy is in place to prevent scammers from abusing their services.
To complete Betfair verification, you’ll need to upload a picture of your passport, ID, and driving license. After verifying your identity and confirming it tallies with the information you’ve submitted, you’ll be able to withdraw.
Betfair login process is easy after completing the registration process. On both mobile and browser, the process is identical.
- Click on the ‘Login' button, which is usually on the top right corner of the app or browser.
- It will bring up a small page that requests your email address and your password.
- After filling out both, click on the login button.
There are a couple of common problems you could potentially run into while trying to log into your account for the first time.
Incorrect password or username
The incorrect password or username is a common error that every user has run into at some point. Resolve this issue by reentering your password and username. If you can't remember either your password or username, then click on the links at the bottom of the login page. They are signified by ‘username/password.'
Recovering your username and password
The links will lead you to two separate pages. If you click on the username link, it will lead you to another page where you’ll need to enter your registered email. Once you submit your email, Betfair customer support will send you an email containing your username.
If you click on the password button instead, you'll go to a separate page that'll ask you to fill in your username and date of birth. After the system confirms that you have prior Betfair access in the form of a working account, it will prompt you to enter your security answer.
- You will receive an email containing your password if you input the correct answer.
- Answer your security question
Although it rarely happens, it’s sometimes possible for you to get a prompt that asks you to answer your security question on your log in page. Betfair sends this prompt when they are not sure the account you are trying to log into is yours. It's more or less an extra layer of security they added to protect users. Just input the security question when the prompt shows up. If you don't remember your security question, log out, then log into your account correctly, and you should stop getting those prompts.
The reason why online casinos and gambling businesses offer bonuses is that they are trying to draw in new players. Betfair is one of the larger names in online gambling, so they don't need to rely on bonuses as much to bring in new players. Nonetheless, they still offer great bonuses on all sections of their business.
- Betfair sports offers newcomers PHP 5700
- Betfair exchange offers newcomers PHP 1100
- Betfair casino offer newcomers PHP 5700 and 30 free roulette chips
- Betfair Poker offers newcomers PHP 11400 + 28500 in Freeroll ticket bonus.
All these bonuses are available to all new punters and casino users in all Betfair supported countries, including Philippines.
Betfair's withdrawal speed is not the fastest in the industry, but it more than makes up for this with its impressive list of banking options. Betfair supports over a dozen different payment methods and wallet applications.
You can deposit and withdrawal through:
- Visa Electron
- Western Union
- Bank Express Transfer
