This isn't actually a useful post, I just thought it a nice microcosm of how convoluted things are nowadays.

1) Try to make a deposit to a casinorewards casino via credit card. It's predictably declined. And gets me an automated call 5 minutes later from my bank's fraud department. (they're cool now)

2) Make the deposit with a debit card. It's surprisingly accepted. And gets me an in person call 10 minutes later from my bank's fraud department. (they're cool now)

3) Actually manage to win a bunch of money.

4) Request a cashout, to quicktender (which I haven't used yet) of almost $3k.

5) I crossed a CR threshold of some sort (probably around $2000), and my withdrawal just sits there for a few days. When I contact a CSR I'm informed I need to provide ID verification docs. A smaller withdrawal didn't require this.

6) I find a scanner, and send the verification.

7) Couple days later, get an email that my withdrawal has been processed.

8) No sign of the deposit in my quicktender account for a couple days. Start to get impatient.

9) This morning, before I leave for work, knock on the door from the fedex guy, who delivers me a CHECK from CR for the entire withdrawal amount. I guess quicktender was out of the question. It's actually drawn on the Bank of Montreal (but the New York Branch, so it's still a US check).

10) Deposited the check at the bank. The teller didn't complain, we'll see if it clears :)

Just curious, how long from the time of deposit until you received your check?

From the time the withdrawal was finally "approved" to when the fedex guy knocked on my door, it was 2-3 days.

The delay from when I first hit the withdrawal button though... that was weeks.

And more curiously, I got a different withdrawal from a different CR casino, which was still pretty big (over $2k), but this one was processed to my quicktender account. So I'm not sure why that one was a check anyway.
