French law requires players to complete the first of three stages of the sign-up process before they can compete in any real-money games, including our exclusive freerolls. Thankfully, signing up is easy, and no deposit is required!

Sign-Up to Winamax Today

To comply with the rules set by the French regulator ARJEL, the Winamax sign-up process is different from what you may be used to, so please read through the following three instructions carefully before signing up to Winamax.

1.) When new players sign up, they must do the following or they will not be allowed to play in real-money games, or freerolls, or make a deposit.

  • Provide their date and place of birth.
  • Provide their bank account number (IBAN and BIC/Swift numbers).
  • Define certain spending and playing limits.

2.) Once an account has been created, a player has three months to provide the following documentation:

  • A copy of an ID document such as a passport or driving license.
  • Proof of bank account ownership, such as a bank statement.
  • Both documents must match exactly the details entered when creating the Winamax account.

Failure to provide this information within one month will result in the account being locked. If the documents are not sent within three months, the account will be permanently closed.

3.) Once Winamax has received and validated all the relevant documents, a letter containing a personal validation code will be sent to the player’s postal address. A player has six weeks in which to enter this code, and once this is done, the account will be finalized and funds may be withdrawn.

Remember, you only need to complete the first step to play in the €1,000 freerolls, but you must complete the other two stages to withdraw any winnings or to make a deposit.

Freeroll Payout Information

Each of the remaining seven freerolls will pay the top 80 finishers with tournament tickets worth between €5 and €150 that can be used to buy into a wide range of tournaments on the excellent Winamax site. The payout schedule can be seen in the table below:
