Silver Oak Casino Review
Although we do our best to be positive in our reviews of casinos, Silver Oak Casino (SilverOakCasino.com) made this challenging for us. Shady is the best word we can come up with to sum up this site, which was established in 2008 and is licensed in Costa Rica. To begin with, the casino has been blacklisted by nearly all online casino reviewers and labeled “an unsafe place to play.” Secondly, accusations have been confirmed that the casino is owned by “scoundrels,” having bought out the player database from another site with as bad a reputation (Crystal Palace) following the death of Warren Cloud, who owned it. Lastly, the page that explains security information here contains sentences that are not in understandable English (see security section). It also makes no mention of any of the crucial information players look for when shopping for a place to play. We are still going to review this casino, as it allows US players and has its positive features like anywhere else, but keep in mind there are red flags waving in every direction, so if you choose to play here, it is at your own risk.
Current Casino Bonuses
Software & Games
Silver Oak Casino is powered by Real Time Gaming software, a platform that has an excellent reputation for its impressive graphics and animation, and thoroughly realistic sound. There are more than 130 games to choose from at this casino, and these include all of the favorites such as Texas Hold’em Poker, Blackjack, Baccarat, Let ‘Em Ride, Red Dog, Pai Gow Poker, War and Three Card Rummy. Also offered are Video Poker and Video Slots as well as Craps, Keno, Roulette, Sic Bo, Scratch Card Games and Bonus Bingo.
Bonuses & Promotions
The Welcome Bonus here is so huge that if we didn’t already report this casino’s rogue reputation, we might start the investigation here. They claim to issue up to $1000 in bonuses for the first TEN deposits, and even if that’s true, be well aware that all “free” money comes with strict rules, and the more you accept the harder it will be to cash it out. Make extra sure to get the wagering requirements attached to this bonus in writing, as well as which games count toward meeting them and at what percentage. If you are still worried you might never see your cash-out, it might be safer to play with your own money at this casino, in which case you can play any games you want. After this bonus, there are also seasonal promotions, a monthly 10K draw and cash-back bonuses.
Customer Service & Support
The casino’s website has a short FAQ page as well as Live Chat offered 24 hours a day. They also list a toll-free phone number and several email addresses.
Safety & Security
As we mentioned in the overview, we have never seen less professionalism than this website’s “Privacy” page, which displays the following sentence: “It’s long has a lot of legal terms in there and what it really says is that we respect your privacy.” There is no mention of using encryption to protect your information either.
