Royal Vegas takes security at the casino seriously so that you can relax and have fun with our games without worries.

1) What are verification documents & why are they needed?
Essentially, what the verification documents show the casino is (to quote the player security specialists) that the player ‘is who s/he says s/he is’. This is required by eCogra, a gaming industry organization that has certified the casino is a safe and fair place to play and it also audits the casino processes regularly.
2) When do I need to send them?
In a nutshell, you’d receive a request from our player security department if you need to send in your verification documents. Some of the players get the request for their documents right after registration. Others may receive the notification as a random spot check, or when a withdrawal is pending
3) What documents do you want?
There are a few different kinds of documents that are used in the process to check that all the details registered on the account are accurate and up to date.

4) How can I send the documents safely?
The preferred method at the casino is uploading them via the casino lobby – if documents have been requested, there would be a special message waiting for you, and the connection is protected by the same SSL-encryption that also protects your online banking transactions. The feature has full instructions for the process so it’s easy to get the job done, step by step. The option will also be added to our mobile casino (at the time of writing it was still in development). Should the upload-feature not be available for you for any reason, you can also email the documents to our player security team; please check the secure sending address with our Support team before sending.
Step 1) Get digital copies of the documents
Preparing the documents is the first step in the process – make sure you have all the requested documents ready, as next you’ll be transferring them to an electronic format (so that you can upload them). The easiest way to get electronic copies is to scan or digitally photograph the documents one by one… These days most mobile phones and tablets have decent cameras, and make light work of this step. Please make sure that:
- You photograph both sides of the documents
- Each image shows all four corners of the document
- The image is clear, legible and in colour
- The file format used is one of the accepted types (jpg, jpeg, bmp, gif, png or xps)
Step 2) Copy the documents to casino
At this point you'd have the electronic copies - now it’s time to upload them in the casino lobby. The process is really easy as you can either:
- Upload the image file from your computer or
- Drag and drop it where requested if you have saved it on your Desktop
If you have any problems with this step, let our support know as they’re available 24/7.
Step 3) Check the documents and send them for checks
After you have uploaded the documents, you can check them for one last time (are they legible, showing all four corners and in the right format) before sending them off to our player security department. If you need to re-upload anything, you can at this point. When you’re ready to send off the documents, click on Submit.
Step 4) Time to congratulate yourself on a job well done!
The confirmation screen will come up when you’ve successfully submitted the documents, and you’ll also receive a confirmation email from player security department confirming the receipt in due course. Like support, our player security department works around the clock – you can expect the document verification to be completed within 48 hours of submission. Once the documents have been approved, a confirmation of the approval will be recorded in your account info for future reference. Back to top
