I find bet365 to be one of the most exciting additions to Ghana’s sports betting scene, offering a ton of good reasons to consider signing up for a new account. You will be able to clearly see them for yourself in the sportsbook review of the operator, and here, I will just outline the most important ones. First and foremost, bet365 is one of the most experienced sports betting operators not only in Ghana but in the industry in general. Its history goes back to 2000 and for that time, it has managed to expand to dozens of highly competitive markets and win over 80 million customers worldwide. This achievement would not be possible if the bookie didn’t have a world-class sports betting offering. With a sports selection of 20 disciplines, events that exceed few thousand every day and top features like free streaming, bet constructor and a high-end up, you should at the very least check out bet365 Ghana. And to make your start a breeze, I have put together this quick guide on signing up for a new account.
There are a few things you would need in order to sign up for a new account with Bet365 Ghana. First, the sportsbook would need your ID as it must abide by the local regulator’s requirements to verify players’ identity. You would be required to provide your phone number (required for signing in) and your email address. And as far as the registration process is concerned, the steps you need to go through are outlined below. Keep in mind that the same steps apply whether you are on a PC, Android or iPhone – on the website or in the mobile app.
- Visit bet365 Ghana and click Join located on the right-hand side of the screen.
- Proceed by providing the required personal and account details, incl. name, date of birth, nationality and ID.
- Enter contact information, incl. email address, physical address and phone number
- Pick log-in details. Set up a password and provide your phone number which will be used as a username
- Verify your phone number by entering the texted activation code and confirming.
Account Verification at bet365 Ghana
As I mentioned in the previous step, bet365 is a licensed operator and must confirm the identity of all players. Therefore, you would have to complete the so-called verification procedure before you can withdraw funds from your account. The process must validate your name, date of birth and current address, therefore, make sure you have entered them correctly. If not, you can edit your details from the My Account page.
In regard to the documents required for verification, you can upload a copy of your ID or another valid Ghanaian ID document. The document should be fully visible on the picture and shouldn’t be out of date. You can upload it via the Verification section in your account. Furthermore, the sportsbook may require additional payment documents to make sure players can support their betting activities. These documents may include payslips, bank statements or bank contracts. This is rarely the case but keep in mind that bet365 may require it. Once the papers are submitted, the entire process may take up to 48 hours but often it is done quicker in less than a day or so.
