As testing gets in full swing this Spring, our ongoing and ambitious project – From the Players, For the Players continues to bloom without any signs of stopping, delivering first-hand and out of the box information about your favorite and perhaps unexplored online casinos.
This time, an LCB tester known as R0UNDER (you may remember him from Whamoo Casino Test), has put Gambola Casino to the trial to provide us with valuable information about the entire experience.
As expected, the tester has followed all the usual steps for a comprehensive online casino inquiry; registering, verification, depositing and withdrawal, while the entire survey took place on 9 April.
Here’s the short summary of the test before we take off:
- Tester of the day: R0UNDER
- Date of registration was April 9th, 2021
- After entering personal details, the registration process concluded with a mobile verification via SMS code validation plus an email with a link for account activation
- The tester uploaded documents without any further request from the casino; ID and bank statement were successfully verified within a few hours
- Next, a deposit in the range of €150 without any fees via MuchBetter occurred instantly
- On the same day, LCB tester requested a withdrawal of €50
- The cashout was confirmed some 5 hours later and tester received the exact requested amount
With that out of the way – let’s see how things really worked out for R0UNDER.
Registering and KYC
The journey for R0UNDER at Gambola Casino started on 9 April at 00:40 CET. It goes without saying that seconds earlier, he visited the official casino review page to get redirected through our link on LCB.
There are three initial steps before opening an account, and the whole process shouldn’t take more than a minute. After entering his email address, setting logins (password, username and mobile number) R0UNDER confirmed his address, date of birth and verification code sent via SMS, as shown below.
As soon as the registration was over, our tester received a confirmation from the casino, including a verification email with potential welcome offers, involving cashback, daily treats, extra spins for Starburst, Gambola Plus Booster and so on.
Without being requested by the casino, he uploaded documents under the Verification tab in the account right after the registration.
Aside from his ID card (front and back) to verify identity, R0UNDER also uploaded a recent statement from the bank, a valid proof of address and a confirmation from his MuchBetter account.
It didn’t take long for the documents to get verified, only a few hours. We have to emphasize the fact, that our tester uploaded all documents during night, when no agents are supposedly available (customer support works on weekdays from 8AM – midnight).
Since the withdrawal already occurred at 10:11 AM on the same day, R0UNDER assumes that the verification of his account was completed in a couple of hours. He never received any confirmation about KYC by email.
Let’s take a look at the depositing process, which also happened on 9 April at 03:40 AM CET. R0UNDER topped up his newly created account with Gambola via MuchBetter, a smart payment app and Ewallet. The deposited amount was exactly EUR 150.00 without any additional fees involved.
Note, that the total amount received after depositing was exactly EUR 150.00; the transaction time was instant and without any delay.
Just to be sure, the tester went to Transactions in his account to make sure that the deposit is ready for use. That’s basically it, the payment was processed instantly via MuchBetter and without any fees.
Exploring the Library
Getting access to the library after depositing is quick, so if you’re into slots, jackpots, table games, live dealers etc. there’s an avid collection of popular titles from Microgaming, NetEnt, Evolution, Play’n GO and other providers.
R0UNDER started with Barcrest’s hit title from 2016, Hercules: High & Mighty, a slot featuring the son of Zeus on a 5x5 grid with 50 ways to win.
Next, he went out of the ordinary and had fun with Amazon Queen, a 2014 release by WMS featuring wilds, scatters, stacked symbols and of course, up to 100 honorary spins with retrigger.
After a long night of gameplay, R0UNDER decided to call it quits and requested a withdrawal of the remaining balance from his account at 5:19 AM CET (it’s still April 9th, 2021).
The requested cashout of the remaining EUR 50 was demanded via the same method – MuchBetter. After going to Transactions and checking his total funds, he entered the amount in the casino’s withdrawal box.
The cashout was received around 10:11 AM CET on the same day, amounting EUR 50,00 as initially requested. According to the report, it took less than 5 hours for the payout to be credited to our tester’s MuchBetter account.
