Betting fans cannot access the whole portfolio or place betting options, without completing the registration formula successfully.
To register, the interested betting fan has to open and load the website completely first of all. On the top of the homepage is a green button placed very obvious. This button directs the customer immediately to the registration formula, by only one click. The formula is split into three parts, though it takes only short time to enter all the data. Generally, it is very important to notice that it is necessary to provide all the data correct and truly. Otherwise later on not solvable inconveniences might occur with the first pay-out request.
