Player's Complaint

On Monday 30th March I tried to withdraw £647 from Spela. They asked for verification documents before I could withdraw so I sent these the same day. I've had no response from them since. I've contacted their live chat two or three times and had the same answer, that the relevant team was checking the documents and would be in touch via email.
