Silver Oak Casino is a rebranded property formerly owned by the Crystal Palace Group, and now under brand new management not associated with the former. Based and licensed to do business out of Costa Rica, the management team behind Silver Oak has been very active in rebranding this online casino and reaching out to the online gambling community at large. Having done the necessary due diligence research, OCS believes the new and improved Silver Oak Casino will prove to be a formidable contender in the high stakes US facing iGaming sector.
Of course, this entails garnering a solid reputation, high player retention levels and strong customer service ratings, which anyone in this business knows is difficult to accomplish across the boards. The good news is that Silver Oak Casino has started off on the right foot and is thus far accomplishing its goals in becoming a top-rated US facing online casino. Backed by a Technical Systems Testing (TST) fairness accredited software platform (powered by Real Time Gaming) and industry standard cashier transaction encryption, players should feel 100% secure placing bets here. Please Note: Silver Oak Casino does not accept players from the State of Kentucky).
In terms of the actual gaming package offered at Silver Oak Casino, players are looking at the best of what Real Time Gaming has to offer. If you don't know already, it's fast playing speeds, impressive graphics, and of course, a solid selection of overall games - most notably, slots. To see for yourself, give the Silver Oak Casino Website a visit and click on the Games tab. On a side note, this is one of the more impressive casino websites we've come across in a good while. Simple, clean, sharp, navigable and content-rich make up a good descriptive.
Once at the Casino Games page, you have the option of using the "Casino Games Finder" and perusing games by the following categories: Most Popular, Poker Games, Bonus Rounds, and Random Jackpots. This is very helpful for new players who may already know the type of game they want to play, yet are overwhelmed by the huge portfolio of casino games offered by online casinos these days. The other option on the main games page is to click on the "Full Games List" tab, which takes you to a page with hyperlinked listings of...you guessed it...Silver Oak's full casino games portfolio.
Again, this is another example of how the Silver Oak Casino website shines. Unlike many online casinos that make you fish around for game rules only accessible inside the software platform and which are often incomplete, Silver Oak transparently lays out the rules and descriptions of each casino game in great detail. The descriptions for their slots are especially impressive, going into much more detail than just the number of paylines and reels. If properly read up, not only will you know how to make it to the bonus round, you will know what to do once inside the bonus round. Our only complaint is a lack of high resolution screen shots of games, which could easily be updated in the future. Obviously, the best way to experience the games is to do so firsthand. While there is no instant Flash platform here (as of yet), the Silver Oak Casino Download allows players to open fun money accounts with unlimited credit reloads.
BONUSES & PROMOTIONS
Now, while all this sounds good and dandy, what good is an online casino without free promotions and solid bonuses? Let's just say - if you are a fan of free cash bonuses - we are saving the best for last in our Silver Oak Casino Review. Upon visiting the Promotions page, you will find a host of Silver Oak Casino bonus codes (including no deposit bonuses) and a listing of ongoing and new promotions. All of this can be summed up as follows: $10,000 in free welcome bonus money, Cashback Bonuses, bankroll protection, and a $10,000 Giveaway.
The welcome bonus package consists of ten consecutive 100% Match Bonuses each worth up to $1,000 Free per deposit. Silver Oak Casino bonus codes are "SILVEROAK1", "SILVEROAK2", "SILVEROAK3" and so on through ten deposits. Please note: The terms and conditions on these bonuses can be viewed via a link on the righthand navigation menu of Silver Oak's promotions page, and not immediately under the bonus description as is often the casino at other casinos. The main provisions you should know about is that the play-through requirement is 30x, with wager restrictions on Roulette, Craps, Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, and Sic Bo, and 50% play-through contribution on Video Poker games and Table Games, including Blackjack. The maximum amount of winnings that can be cashed out from bonus wagers is twice the face value of the bonus. For a full $1,000 bonus, this would be $2,000 in eligible winnings.
Also, please note the 2nd through 10th bonuses are contingent on previous bonus play, meaning that in order to claim the second bonus, the player must lose the entirety of the initial deposit, bonus and winnings derived thereof. Think of it as a second-chance bonus. Lose that and you are entitled to a third-chance bonus and so on. This said, it makes sense to go with more bonus money on the first deposit, for if you bank some lucky wins and come out on top, the remaining bonuses will not be available. However, loyalty and cashback bonuses (see below) can be claimed on future deposits.
If and when luck doesn't happen to be in your corner, Silver Oak Casino offers consolation with bankroll protection. It's basically insurance worth 10% cashback on weekly losses. And if you're a high roller who doesn't like to use deposit bonuses, Silver Oak offers 30% to 60% cashback bonuses on deposits ranging from $1,000 to $20,000. Keep in mind, cashback credits are also subject to normal bonus play-through requirements.
Last but not least, Silver Oak Casino offers a $10,000 bonus chip giveaway every month of the year (standard bonus play-through). All players who deposit $25 or more at least twice in any given month will be entered to win what is probably the largest single bonus ever to be awarded on a monthly basis.
