Winning at any casino is difficult enough. A casino's business is to take your money over time making, while making you believe you are having fun.
Anyone playing poker online must have their minds read. Off course they are going to take your money.

Who runs and owns this Silversands anyway. No information available, my guess is a few clever Nigerians in Lagos.

Title:Playtech poker sites for South Africa5 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
 
Following up on this disgusting site called Silversands poker.

New recommended sites for South africans with 0% deposit and 0% withdrawel fee's through Visa, Maestro , Mastercard , Credit cards. YOU WILL ONLY PAY CHARGES IF YOU DEPOSIT AND WITHDRAWEL THROUGH SKRILL (Upload and Skrill>Bank account) on these sites, so rather stick to direct depositing through Visa and the other above options, withdrawels take max. 24Hours provided it is not a public holiday.

1) Bet365
2) Winner Poker
3) Titan Poker

All of the 3 above are Playtech sites and are extremely loyal to its players with
rewards programmes , OPEN ACCOUNTS in ZAR to insure theres no fee's when depositing etc, the fee's only occur when you deposit into a site where ZAR has to convert into $ and Pounds etc.
The positive at all 3 of these sites is that you may join tables and tournaments and your ZAR is automatically converted into what ever currency table you join (NB. Its goes according to the exchange rate specifically on that day).

No links for these sites, just visit google, type in .... , and visit the site, everything from the game selection to gameplay is so much better than silversands.
Rake at Silversands is considered the rip off scam at the site, and you always looking at peanut returns Rakeback at 12:00 Mondays, even though you paid a lot of rake !!! At least at these Playtech sites you will get rewarded properly, and the Players are truly super crap.

See you all, my New Years Resolution is to see that Silversands liquidates in 2014.
Cheers

Title:Utter Disgrace3 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
 
Possibly the highest rake site compared to any other international site, pretty sick, rather go to the casino and you'll get better MVG point rates through Sun International casinos than this sh--.

Personally do not like how tables are started from 1/5 1/6 1/7 , Those guys sit there for ages , looks like Whales on the companies behalf, Seriously!

How long has Sands been open? You can't even resize a fu#kin table, You can only see one proper screen or you have to play poker like a slideshow (I rate this is a tactical decoy into making people less concentrated , make mistakes , and build that rake which is Ridiculous! Clever on Silversands part tho, been open for a couple of years and couldnt even set a Fu#kin tile/multitable feature. I emailed them 2+ years ago about this and log back in after 2 years and the sh1t is still the same!

3Piggs poker was the sh1t in the day, would recommend to all players that came from there, go to Ladbrokes / Unibet, they run the same software, At least you guaranteed enjoyable play - Salute

Cannot understand why anyone would ever play poker online.

Casino's are in business to take your money and nothing else. How easy for them to do that online. All they do is to hace a few dummy players that wins big hands and big tournaments now and again.

Play at the casino or your diningroom table. At least you know you playing agains real people and not gosts.

Title:Rake is the problem2 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
 
I play there occasionally. The problems the site has are the software is not great, cannot do simple things like resize windows, which limits multi-tabling. The biggest problem however is the rake. It is just too high. HUNL in an unraised pot in the 2/4 games you'll pay 0.76c rake, almost 10%. You can't play HU below this level otherwise rake kills any profit. Even worse for PLO.
98% of tournaments are rebuys. No late registration. Not really profitable IMO.
They only offer a max of 15% rakeback which isn't great incentive to play,which I suppose is why I play seldomly on their site and rather play $ sites.
Lowering the rake and some software improvements would go a long way.

Title:Decent9 out of 13 readers found this review helpful
 
Overall a decent poker experience, players are average to fish and the high stakes guys are mostly rich fish.
WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to many rebuy tournaments and some of the buyins for the GTD and not good value.

Support is instant in the player chat, action is average traffic wise and it seems to be a pure South African poker site

everyone complains about losing. that is why there is all these sour ppl saying stay away. software is not to good no. but i must say this. if u cannot win at silversands then there is only 1 reason for that. u just bad. simply sh--ty software of not. it is by far the easiest site out there. and if u cant win then its not the software trust me. its u lol. all of u are big mouths. go try another site, plz. and see how much more u lose if u lose on sands. all that crap said about them favouring players is also BS. on any site u get variance. and i can tell u guys for a fact. most ppl on sands make retarded plays. and thats why i make money there. i can run bad sure. everyone runs bad. just because u think u played your hands well. vs good players if u are losing players they are inside your head. they know exactly what u have and what they need to do to win vs u. nothing at all to do with software once again. enjoy. and fyi... only losers look for excuses.

Very Good poker room. Very loose, a lot of rebuy MTT's but overlay makes up for that. Cash tables are awesome. 20% weekly rakeback paid out every monday which is generous. Nothing further to say. High stakes is always pumping.

Downside would have to be the casino and the poker lobby casino. I feel it should be blacklisted as a rogue casino because it never pays more than existing buy ins ever! Glitchy over reeling of slots so a 1/10 for the casino I am afraid, 0/10 is my personal rating.

But its more a poker room and a generous one at that.
