- City/State Employee Card
- Birth Certificate
- University ID Card
Betway may ask for proof of address too. You can use the following:
- Bank Statement

The process of verifying individual players is essential for many reasons, with it being a federal law in the United States that online gambling operators earning $1million or more in gross revenues to complete the process.
It prevents people from using gambling as a vehicle for money laundering, with Betway using quality banking options for depositing and withdrawing funds to avoid this issue.
By using ID verification, fraud will be prevented as only an individual with the proper paperwork being able to create an account.
This means that a thief with your credit card will be unable to complete the verification process after trying to create an account in your name.
