Do I Need to satisfy an Identity Verification Process (KYC – Know Your Customer) and will my account be restricted until my identity has been verified?
Collection of information relating to identity
Legacy SweepStake needs to be able to positively identify our customers. The first step in this process is collecting certain personal identity information (such as your name, date of birth and residential address) from you before you make a purchase of Gold Coins.
Verification of identity
After collecting the information, Legacy SweepStake may separately be required to verify that the information collected is correct in order to comply with legal obligations that are applicable to us and in line with our commitment to responsible gameplay. You will be notified in your online account once we are required to verify your identity. If you fail to submit the required documentation within the time period indicated to you in such notification, you will not be able to play our games or redeem any Sweeps Coins until your identity has been verified.
Verification of account ownership
Prior to being able to redeem any Sweeps Coins for cash prizes, Legacy SweepStake needs to ensure that the account into which any cash prize will be paid is in your name. We are unable to pay any prizes into accounts that are not in your name.
What Documents Do I Need to Provide as Part of the Verification Process?
Verification of your identity (including your name, date of birth and residential address) may be achieved by submitting one of the following documents which will normally need to be government-issued:
driver’s licence; passport; or identity card.
The document submitted must still be current. In order to cross-check that the identity document submitted is valid, you may be requested to upload a photo or real-time selfie image of yourself via our dedicated portal. If your identity document does not display your residential address, you may also need to submit one of the following documents as proof of your residential address:
bank statement; utility bill; or letter from a government authority.
This document must show your name, residential address and a date of issue that is within the last 6 months.
In order to demonstrate that you own the bank account into which you would like any redemption of Sweeps Coins for cash prizes paid, we will require a copy of a bank statement (dated within the last 6 months) relating to that account in your name. If you have a joint account (that is, an account in the name of two or more people), all account holders will need to satisfy the identity verification process outlined above, meaning all account holders will need to have their name, date of birth and residential address verified.
How Long Does it Take to Verify My Documents?
Once we have received the required documents in their correct form, we will verify them as soon as possible. The process depends on whether you have sent the correct form of identification or account ownership to us. If everything is correct, it normally takes about 5 days to complete the account verification process. Once your account has been verified, it normally takes about 10 days for your cash prize to be processed and reach your account.
