  • Phone Number
  • Email Address: As part of our main form of communication regarding your account, you may also receive marketing emails for different promotional offers.
  • Social Security Number: We only need the last 4 digits, this is to verify your identity. If you later hit a taxable wager, we will then require a full 9 digit social for IRS tax reporting purposes.
  • Date of Birth: This is used to verify your identity and that you are of legal wagering age.

If we are unable to verify your identity during registration with the information provided, we may require further documentation before your account can be created.
