How to FICA your YesPlay Account | Ready, Steady, Withdraw!
FICA is something that online punters have to do which can be a bit annoying, but thankfully the best online betting sites in South Africa like YesPlay have made it as easy as possible to submit your documents and activate your account ready for withdrawals.
Continue reading for everything you need to know about how to FICA your YesPlay account via email or WhatsApp so you can make easy withdrawals.
FICA is a law in South Africa which requires information from players before paying money into their bank account. It proves that you are a person with a valid identification number that lives in South Africa, which can help to prevent money laundering and other illegal activities.
Now you may ask, how come I can deposit into a betting account without verifying my account, but I must send documents before requesting a withdrawal? The answer is that it's impossible to launder money without depositing and then also withdrawing funds. Therefore deposits are allowed right after completing registration, but withdrawals are prevented until your betting account has been FICA verified.
Which YesPlay FICA documents are required?
📃 Certified copy of your Identity Document and/or Passport.
📃 Proof of Address (no older than 3 months). This can be a phone bill, electricity bill, municipal rates bill or retail account statement.
📃 Letter from the bank confirming your bank details.
How to FICA your YesPlay account
The process for submitting your FICA documents and verifying your online account is the same as many other bookmakers in South Africa.
You'll need to scan or photograph your FICA documents with your phone, ensuring that the images and text are clearly visible. You can then either attach and submit your FICA documents to an email and send it to [email protected] or send them via WhatsApp to 07721596104.
If you don't have access to these FICA documents or are unable to FICA your YesPlay account, you can deposit with a voucher and withdraw funds from an ATM using FNB eWallet or ABSA Cash Send. Find out how to bet online in South Africa without a bank account or FICA documents.
