Activating an Online Casino Account in New York
When the Empire State legalizes online casinos, signing up for an account will be simple. Note that online casinos are required by law to verify users’ identities to prevent money laundering and other illegal activities. Most online casinos will usually ask for standard personal information, as required by state regulators:
- Full name
- Email address
- Date of birth
- Social security number
- Potentially other questions to verify your identity
What to Expect from New York Bonus Codes
There’s nothing better for players than some bonus cash just for signing up, and online casinos know this. This is why they offer enticing welcome bonuses for bettors to give their platform a shot. Players only get one chance at claiming a new user bonus at each casino, so make it count.
You’ll commonly see no-deposit bonuses in the $10-25 range, with a few higher ones mixed in. First deposit match bonuses are also fairly standard, usually 100% up to a specific limit. Finally, several but not all casinos will promote risk-free bets, so it’s worth looking into if that is an enticing option for you.
As a note, players cannot cash out bonuses immediately as every casino will include a wagering or withdrawal requirement to prevent players from abusing these bonuses.
Expect there to be a flurry of exciting online casino promos when it becomes legalized in the Empire State.
