Is It Safe to Gamble at Sites that don’t check Age?
 
 
 
You may be wondering why anyone would want to gamble on a website that did not verify their age. The reason that these bet without verification gambling sites exist is not because they want to encourage underage betting in any way. It is because there are a lot of gamblers of legal betting age that do not want to provide their personal details to online bookmakers.

The first thing to say is that in most countries it is not a crime for a betting site not to verify the age of gamblers. These sites exist because people are concerned about the safety of their personal information. There are many examples of cybercriminals breaching website databases and selling personal information on the black market.


Is it Safe to use these Bet without Verification sites?

Yes, it is safe for you to use gambling sites that do not have a verification process. We recommend that you find a reputable bookmaker website that offers this feature. You want to ensure that your money will be safe with them and that they will payout when you win.

There are a lot more gambling websites that do not require verification due to the emergence of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. These days, it is possible for you to find a reputable gambling site that accepts the major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and more.

Cryptocurrencies use a blockchain platform where anyone can buy and sell coins without revealing their identity. It follows that gambling sites that accept cryptocurrencies will not expect a person to reveal their identity to them either.


No Online Gambling Websites want to accept Underage Betting

It is never the intention of the bookmaker to accept people that are underage for gambling because they do not require verification. The onus is on the person signing up for a betting account here. You will know what the legal age for gambling is in your country and if you bet as a minor and are caught you will be in trouble.

Check to see if the online bookmaker has a valid operational license. We would never recommend that you gamble on an unlicensed site. It is unfortunate that some online gambling sites are not as honest as others and may try to prevent you from claiming your winnings for example.

If this happens with a licensed online gambling site then you can complain to the licensing authority and they will take action on your behalf. When there is no licensing authority then there is nothing that you can do.

It is also a good idea to check websites that contain blacklists of gambling sites before you register. If the website you are considering appears on a blacklist, then find another that doesn’t. There are also gambling forums where members will be honest about their experiences with gambling sites.


Advantages and Disadvantages of using No Verification Gambling Sites

The most obvious advantage of using a no verification gambling site is that you do not have to provide the website with any personal details. Another advantage is that these sites will usually accept cryptocurrencies as a way to make deposits and withdrawals. It is faster and easier to get started with no verification sites as there is no KYC (know your customer) process to deal with.

One of the major disadvantages of registering with no verification gambling sites is that they offer significantly reduced support. They tend to provide a much higher level of support to people that have been through the verification process.
