How to Verify Your Account
Verifying your account on WSOP.com is a two-step process. We will need to verify your identity and your location.
Verify Your Identity
When you register a real money account with WSOP.com, we will attempt to verify your identity in real time using the information that you provided on your registration form. If for any reason we are unable to verify your identity, we will create a 'Temporary Account' for you and request that you send us a copy of your government issued photo ID and a recent utility bill for address confirmation.
You can verify your identity now by securely uploading your personal documents within the 'Cashier'. Just click the 'Verify ID' tab, then upload a file containing an electronic copy of your photo ID and utility bill from your computer (a scan or a digital picture) and send it to us for review. File must be no more than 4mb in size in the following formats: JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, BMP, PDF, JPG, TIF.
A member of our customer support team will personally review your document and verify your account. This may take up to 72 hours.
Once the process is complete we will send you an email to let you know if your account has been approved and you are ready for real money play. If we are unable to verify your account, we will send you an email to let you know the reason.
Verify Your Location
The State of Nevada requires that only players located within state lines can play for real money.
Geocomply is the software plug-in that allows us to verify your location. It is already included with the poker software and a separate download is not necessary. In order for this plug-in to work correctly, please check that your Wi-Fi is turned on. While you do not need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network to verify your location, your Wi-Fi capability needs to be turned on. We cannot verify your location if your Wi-Fi is turned off. If you do not have Wi-Fi included in your computer's hardware, you can use a USB Wi-Fi adapter to identify your location.
How do I turn on Wi-Fi on my computer?
If you are using Windows:
- Open the Control Panel
- Go to "Network and Internet" (sometimes called "Network Connections")
- Click "View network status and tasks" or if you are using a Wi-Fi adapter, click on the icon of adapter
- Click "Connect or disconnect" or click "Enable"
If you are on a Mac:
- If you are on a Mac, our systems will automatically turn on your Wi-Fi and nothing will not need to be done manually
- In certain situations, you may have to change some of your Mac's settings.
- To change these settings go to: System Preferences -> Sharing -> and uncheck Remote Login, Remote Management, and Remote Apple Events
