Fully licensed for online betting in Iowa
User-friendly mobile apps for iOS and Android
Covers all of the major sports in the U.S.
Q Sportsbook brings all of your favorite sports betting options to your fingertips through premium apps for both iOS and Android, from anywhere in Iowa.
Q Sportsbook is the official sportsbook product offered by the Q Casino in Iowa. The operator was among the first to launch a mobile betting app when Iowa legalized online betting in 2019. Now, customers can easily register through mobile apps and place real money bets within state borders. But how does Q Sportsbook compare to other online sports betting operators in the USA? Let's find out.
Unfortunately, Q Sportsbook doesn't have a welcome bonus for new mobile customers. It also doesn't run any special promotions. The only source of extra perks is the rewards program.
Known as Q Rewards, the program is available for users at Q Casino and Q Sportsbook. Members earn points when they bet real money on games. The number of points earned in six months will determine the tier, from Club to Silver to Gold. Benefits include gift shop discounts, birthday gifts, email offers, and point multiplier bonuses. You can also redeem points for cash, for dining, and free play.
Banking is limited to just a few methods right now. We like that Q Sportsbook accepts both Play+ and PayPal, along with cash in person at the Q Casino and Hotel in Dubuque, Iowa.
|Deposit Method||Fee||Process Time|
You can choose from the same three Q Sportsbook withdrawal methods when you want to cash out. The minimum limit is $10, and processing will generally take one banking day.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Process Time|
|Free||1-2 Banking Days||$10|
|Free||1-5 Banking Days||$10|
|Free||1-2 Banking Days||$10|
Q Sportsbook uses software from IGT, and the platform includes some of the main sports betting features. The layout is very familiar, with some added elements.
Q Sportsbook live betting is not overly impressive. The section usually has a few live events, but the schedule is not as rich as those found with other operators. The minimal display does not show stats or a play-by-play representation. We feel that Q Sportsbook could improve on the range of live markets available for the major games.
Although the land-based casino is the main product of the Q brand, the mobile app does not feature an online casino as casino games are still illegal in Iowa. Interested players in the state will have to visit the brick-and-mortar casino if they want to try out slots, table games, and other options.
Since Q Sportsbook's website isn't exactly desktop-friendly, the mobile app is the only way to access the platform on the go. The Q Sportsbook app is available for iOS and Android, and players can download it directly from the Q Casino site. Following installation, the app’s homepage displays several chat bubbles with popular matches. The tab for all sports will change the layout to the traditional mobile sportsbook and display the available betting options. Overall, the mobile sports betting app runs well but doesn't have many advanced features.
Q Sportsbook meets all the legal online sports betting regulations in Iowa and is licensed by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. The mobile sportsbook app is safe, and player funds are held in separate accounts from the ones used for daily operations. Q Casino also has a solid reputation as a reliable operator in Iowa.

Online customer support at Q Sportsbook is limited. The app lacks a live chat feature, and email support is difficult to track down on the website. Users who need help or more information are encouraged to call the phone number provided at Q Casino or visit in person. You may also find more details on the Q Sportsbook Twitter page.
The Q Sportsbook mobile app is a fine addition to the land-based Q Sportsbook in Iowa. However, it is not a full-fledged, stand-alone mobile sportsbook that can compete with the other brands in Iowa or other states with legalized online sports betting. Best features include:
Licensed and regulated in Iowa
Q Casino and Sportsbook already have a large following and a brand presence in Iowa. Residents interested in betting are probably already familiar with the operator. It is a trustworthy and fully licensed company.
Casual mobile betting
More and more players opt to place bets from their phones. Q Sportsbook delivers a decent mobile betting experience with markets on all the popular sports. The depth is certainly enough to please casual bettors, and the odds are usually average.
Easy and safe banking
While Q Sportsbook doesn't offer many deposit methods through the mobile app, it does cover the big ones. Play+ has become the go-to payment option for online betting in the U.S., and PayPal adds another level of convenience. Customers can always make deposits in cash at Q Casino.
Yes, Q Sportsbook is a 4,200 square-foot land-based sportsbook located in Q Casino. The mobile betting app is available within the state with a license from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.
IGT developed the Q Sportsbook app, so customers can expect all the needed security measures to protect customers. Banking is also safe with Q Sportsbook, and customers must verify their identity before cashing out.
Right now, you can only join the Q Sportsbook mobile betting app if you are physically located within Iowa. New players are no longer required to visit Q Casino to complete the registration process as they can sign up directly from the app.
Unfortunately, Q Sportsbook doesn't have a welcome bonus. This may change in the future as the operator promotes its mobile betting services.
The Q Sportsbook app does not accept Bitcoin. You can, however, deposit with Play+, PayPal, or with cash at Q Casino.
Of course, you can withdraw from your Q Sportsbook account at any time. You may be asked to submit some documents that verify your identity to ensure proper security.
Withdrawals from Q Sportsbook are usually ready within one banking day. PayPal transactions should be completed just a few minutes after that. It can take a few more days for funds to be available on your Play+ card.
You can contact the support team by calling the phone number for Q Casino (563-582-3647). Unfortunately, the app does not have a live chat option.
