If you have not already been asked to register your details and create an account while the casino software was installing, you will next need to create an account in the casino software. To do this you just need to run the casino software and look for the option to register account or create account on the login screen. 

There are normally two types of accounts available in an online casino, Free Play accounts let you play for free with play money and a Real Money account lets you play for and win real money however you also have to play with real money too.

Creating a player account in a casino is not as scary as it may seem and if you just want to try out the casino without depositing any money you don't have to give any credit details until the point you actually make a deposit.

When creating a free play account you will normally be for some of or all of the following;

Title - Mr, Mrs, Miss or Ms so the casino can address you properly in communications.

First Name & Last Name - So the casino knows your real name and can use it in emails they may send to you.

Account Name or Username - This is your username which you will use to login to the casino, Some casinos allow you to have a screen name as well that can be changed in the options of the casino if it is not an option on the regististration form.

Email Address - This is so the casino can contact you about special offers and promotions. A casino should never email you unless you have registered an account with them. There is also normally an option to opt out of the player notification emails.

Password - Used for logging into the casino.

Bonus Code - If you have a sign up bonus code that you would like to redeem you can enter it here. A no deposit bonus code would allow you to play in real money mode with your bonus money without having to make a deposit.

Age Confirmation - All casinos will ask you to confirm your age to make sure you are old enough to gamble and play in their casino.

If you like the casino and would like to play its games for real money it is normally just a case of clicking play for real and registering some more information with the casino you can then make your first deposit to take advantage of any first deposit match bonuses and then start playing to win real money.

When creating a real money account or upgrading your play money account you would normally be asked for the following information:

Country, Address, Town, Post Code -The casino will also need to know your address, this is important as some casinos can't accept players from certain countries for legal reasons.

Date of Birth - Although you may have clicked a tick box confirming you are over 18, the casinos like to cover themselves by asking your age.

Security Question  & Answer - This will be used if you forget your password or can be used when you contact the casino, this gives them another level of checking you are you and not someone pretending to be you.

Phone Numbers - Some casinos offer call back support so they ask for your phone numbers to allow them to call you back if you request them to. Another reason the casino may ask you for this is for their automated telephone verification system when you choose one of their deposit methods. 

Preffered Account Currency - It is always nice to see your money in your own currency so you don't have worry about conversion rates.

Depending on the casino you have chosen they may ask you for the above information at different points in the registration process however the above is all the information you will be asked for when creating an account at a casino.
