It is usually very simple to create an account with a foreign betting site. Here, it is first and foremost important to distinguish between European bookmakers and betting sites further abroad outside Europe’s borders.

- Click through to a bookmaker further up.
- Find the registration form via “sign up” or directly on the front page.
- Enter your email address, desired password, select currency and confirm your account.
- Transfer your first deposit to get welcome bonus.

What payment methods can I use?
One of the biggest advantages of choosing a foreign gambling site over Danish gambling sites is that you have a greater range of available payment methods. Below we go through the main ones one by one.
It is important to highlight that you can often always complete deposits and withdrawals to and from bookmakers abroad via bank transfer. However, it is usually the only payment method where there is typically a fee. In addition, it is also very slow, which is why we do not recommend it. But perhaps you prefer it for other reasons, and you therefore have the opportunity to choose it.
Just as when you play at bookmakers with a Danish license, you can also use payment cards at betting sites abroad. Typically it is VISA and MasterCard, but there can also be even more options at other times. If, for example, you prefer to pay with American Express, Maestro or another international payment card, it may be that the foreign betting sites with odds suit you best.
You can also transfer money to and from a bookmaker abroad with e-wallets. Here we are talking about electronic wallets such as PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, etc. Precisely those three are often available on the Danish gambling market. But when you play on odds sites with a foreign license, there are often many more numbers to choose from.
Regardless of whether you play on the Danish market, European market or move further afield, you can almost always complete your first deposit with PaySafeCard if you feel like it. This is a form of electronic gift card. Often when you pay with PaySafeCard, your payout method is typically automatic bank transfer. It is therefore important to pay attention if you do not want to pay out with a less fast bank transfer.
While the other payment methods are very generally seen for foreign bookmakers, cryptocurrency is on record outside Europe. Within the EU, you cannot yet pay with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and other similar payment methods. Maybe it will, but in the meantime you can play with cryptocurrency at gambling sites abroad outside of Europe. Here, for example, Curacao gaming sites are an excellent example.
