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:elsewhere we all go0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful
Try bet online, i went for a $1500 deposit here, this site is extremely awesome. Good spots, tournaments, incredibly fast software. Good support, and take skrill and neteller.

Other sites, probably Unibet but they not so great, and americas cardroom is ok but there software is way too old fashioned and it feels clunky.

Silversands can go fly a kite, hulle ma se vir almal wat daar werk

Title:This is of high importance to any player in SA6 out of 7 readers found this review helpful (This is straight from the website people)

Last tests passed and regulated on RNG from 1 July 2012 to 31 December 2012. I have been trying to contact Kanahwake Gaming commision to shut the site down. The site is already blacklisted for rogue ethics on casinomeister and askgamlbers.

My account when depositing says:


Any one know exactly what the hell is going on here? The webpage is fake and does not load, no one answers that landline? This is the email that I traced through google. I sense something big is going down and may be onto something here. Contacted higher authorities , and a contact in police commision in South Africa. This is going to be an ongoing investigation case until solved!

Whats brought to attention, when you deposit with credit card. It usually reads on statements :

For those unfamiliar, Alderney sites that accept south africa players include Mansion poker, and Boyle I think which have become big problem sites in the past 2 years for online poker not for South Africa but for players around the world which include not paying out players, abusing there own Ts and Cs. Anyway this is no longer in my power and as mentioned higher authorities will take this up, I have some of the biggest contacts right to the top of the police in South Africa and know these people on a personal level. Thanks for reading. Will update again.

Title:Utter Disgrace6 out of 6 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

Title:Rake is the problem6 out of 6 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.

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:Playtech poker sites for South Africa8 out of 10 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.
