How does mFortune verify my identity?
mFortune Casino maintains a strict no underage gambling policy. All mFortune players must verify their age, identity and address before they are able to play our games. We will automatically attempt to confirm a new player’s details electronically upon registration, for example via a third party identity check. If this is unsuccessful, the player will be asked to verify their details using other methods, for example providing photo ID or using our Facebook verification tool. Players cannot access or play any games until identity verification is complete.
Will I have to send any ID?
As of the 7th of May 2019, UK Gambling Commission regulations state that UK gambling operators must verify every player’s identity to prove they are over the age of 18 before allowing them to play any games. This means that we are legally required to verify your name, address and date of birth and may need to ask for and review photo ID before we can allow you to access our games. There is information on how to send your ID under ‘How do I send in my ID?’ in this FAQ section.
As part of our obligations under a licence issued by the UK Gambling Commission, we are required to conduct on-going due diligence checks at some point during the lifetime of an account. We may request additional information from players for security reasons or to re-verify the specific details registered and deposit methods used.
What documents will you request from me?
We may just need to ask you to provide some ID, such as a passport, driving licence or other recognised government issued documents.
We take security very seriously and check all IDs manually to ensure 100% accuracy.
Occasionally we may have to request additional ID to ensure details we hold on your account are accurate, that we are paying winning payments to the correct person and that deposits have not been made by unauthorised third parties.
We are also required by law, via licensing conditions and codes to carry out various security checks to safeguard against money laundering and other criminal practices.
In some cases we may need to ask you to provide us with documents as part of our Enhanced Due Diligence process such as proof of the payment method used and source of wealth. We ask for this information as one of our licence requirements to pro-actively engage in initial and on-going due diligence checks.
We have a responsibility to mobile network providers and contract holders to make sure we verify details of mobile phone used to make deposits. We may ask you to provide proof of ownership of the mobile contract or proof of the bills being paid. This is part of our obligation with the mobile phone providers as we do have a duty of care to them with regards to deposits that have been made.

Please ensure that any documents you do send are in date, include who the document is from, have the correct name and address, and are clear and easy to read. There is information on type of documents we may request under “What document do I need to send ….” In this FAQ Section.
What if I don’t give you the information/documentation requested?

Why didn’t I receive my Registration Bonus?
The free registration bonus is only available when you create your first and only account with mFortune. If you’ve held an account with us before, you won’t be able to receive it again. You’ll also need to have completed the sign-up process and activated and verified your account before you’ll receive your welcome bonus. If neither of these tips help, please contact customer support – they’ll be able to look into your account and see what’s going on.
Why haven’t I received my Refer a Friend Bonus?
There are a few reasons why this might be the case. If your friend is already registered with us or you have referred yourself then you will not receive the refer a friend bonus. Your friend will also need to have made their first deposit and staked this through before you’ll receive a bonus. Finally, we are required to run various security checks whenever a new player signs up, such as age verification checks. You won’t receive the bonus for referring a friend until your friend’s account has passed all of these security checks. If you still need help with this, please contact customer support.
How does your bingo loyalty scheme work?
We are not like other loyalty schemes where it is impossible to earn prizes. All the prizes are fairly distributed to enable them to be realistically achievable. You get 2 points per every £1 you spend on bingo tickets and you only need 250 points to get the first prize in the shop.
