My name is Martin < surname removed > and I opened an account on QBCasino on October 16.
I saw the casino was rated well, had good recensions and thought I' d give it a try.
Also the brand 'direx' which seems quite big and with multiple casinos gave me a good feeling about it.
I registered, fully verified my documents on october 16th (THE SAME DAY!) and started playing the nice welcome offer when I had some time on october 19th.
I deposited 80€ via skrill using bonus code CHOSEN playing bust the bank with 4,80€/spin and won 230€ which I got instantly.
My first impression was superb and i was looking forward to being a lifelong customer.
I lost the second bonus THOR when I deposited 100€ and thought I' d try one more time, this time using the next bonus code FREYA, getting a nice 100% bonus on top of my third deposit of 100€.
All times playing bust the bank which is not prohibited in terms, always playing 4,80€/spin, well under their 5€ Maxbet in their terms.
However, on this third welcome bonus I managed to spin it up to over 5000€ in winnings!
I was very happy and had a great evening with a bottle of whine, having found my new favourite casino.
On October 20th I got this mail:
'Dear Martin < surname removed >,
It is a great pleasure for Qb Casino to have customers like you. Thank you very much for registering qbcasino.com

I did as requested the same day and uploaded the selfie. It hasn' t been approved since.
I deposited another 100€ not to 'touch' my winnings and tried my luck again on candy dreams and with small bets, but didnt win anything.
I requested a withdrawal of 750€ since QB doesn' t let you withdraw more than 1000€ via e-wallets and went to bed, expecting to get my money within 24hrs just as their house terms suggest.
The next day I wondered that nothing had happened but didn' t think more about it, depositing another 50€ playing copy cats neither losing nor winning. On October 28th I deposited another 25€, discarded my withdrawal and played a bit and on October 30th I deposited another 50, both times playing candy dreams, butterfly staxx and gonzos quest, all games not on the list of prohibited games in the bonus terms.
I requested a withdrawal of 800€ and didn' t think of it any longer.
On November 4th (!) I got a bit uncomfortable waiting so long for so little money and went on to contact live chat.
This is when I really felt unease and my warning bells went on!
This is the transcript of my chat with QB-Support from 04.11.2018:
Martin < surname removed >: hi, why does my withdrawal take so long? greetings martin
Andy joined the chat
Andy: We are glad to welcome you to our casino.
Martin < surname removed >: thank you
Andy: Write your e-mail whose you used for registration, please.
Martin < surname removed >: < email removed >
Andy: At the moment, there are technical difficulties with processing withdrawal requests. Once everything is fine, we will process your withdrawal request.
Martin < surname removed >: ok, how long do you think this will take ?
Andy: Unfortunately I can not say for sure.
Martin < surname removed >: thanks for the information
Andy: We apologize for any inconvenience.
Martin < surname removed >: e-wallet withdrawals should be done in 24hrs you know that? its written in your casino rules
Andy: That's right. But at the moment there are difficulties with withdrawals.'
This for me is an absolute No-Go, ridiculously embarrassing statement and I hereby want to ask Askgamblers for their help as well as warn all players not to play on QBCasino. Letting a NEW player wait two weeks for some money he legitly won on a casino is absolutely frustrating and a bad image for all casinos.
I have screenshotted absolutely EVERYTHING and have no problem whatsoever to take this where it has to be taken.
5000€ is a tiny part in the casino industry, for a retarded gambler as well as any casino that considers itself at least a slight bit of serious and professional.
Thanks AskGamblers for your help,
although I don' t expect any answer from QB which, although it' s direx, seems to be a scam overall.
Greetings Martin < surname removed >
