The 26-year-old picked up his first ranking title at the competition on 4 March, after causing controversy by describing conditions in Beijing as "horrendous".
Now, almost six weeks later, he has asked World Snooker on Twitter how much longer he will have to wait to be paid for the win.
Allen beat UK Champion Judd Trump, Jimmy Robertson, Mark King and Mark Selby on his way to the final, where he comfortably defeated Stephen Lee 10-1.
He continued: "Only asking a simple question tweeps. What other job do you've to wait this long on money?! Can't be many.
"Probably so world snooker can make the interest from the players earnings and not the players."
The Ulsterman's earlier comments landed him in trouble during the tournament, when he tweeted that "this place is horrendous" and claimed to have found a dead cat.
It is understood snooker authorities are investigating the outburst.
