Why do you need my Social Security Number?

  • Updated

We are required to do so by state regulations. We use your Social Security Number (SSN) to confirm your identity, verify your eligibility and prevent fraud. This is required by our gambling licenses – and protects both of us. While we typically ask for only the last four digits of your SSN, we need your complete Social Security Number if:

  • You're a New York State resident (those are the rules in the Empire State)
  • An IRS reporting event occurs (you win big)

We take your privacy seriously and store your sensitive information in an encrypted form.
