- Once logged in, click or tap My Account
- Select Deposit Funds and choose the deposit method which is most convenient for you

Verifying your account will ensure you receive a R25 Welcome Free Bet which you can use right away. If your account is successfully verified upon registration you won’t have to send in your FICA documents to receive the R25 Free Bet.
