Along with the traditional content (games, bonuses), the casino also features a Stories Contest. Players are asked to send their success stories related to Silver Oak (big wins etc.) and partake in the draw that would determine the winner who will receive $100. Another type of activity that many Canadian users are fond of is tournaments. And they are abundant in Silver Oak.
Payment methods for injecting moneys into the casino account are credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard), bitcoins and a few electronic wallets. No deposit limits are imposed by the casino but there are some forced by payment methods themselves. Before placing a deposit, players should consult the Cashier page to find out if there any limits.
Silver Oak features a full-fledged and operative mobile version that runs perfectly on any mobile device, regardless of a screen size and resolution. Note that a landscape view is preferable for playing RTG games. Around 80% of all slots are compatible with mobile and the provider releases all recent games only in HTML5 format, thus the number of cross-platform slots will increase over time. Bonuses and tournaments are also available in the mobile casino without any hassle.
The casino is powered by RTG, a well-known software provider that attempts to release one game per month. The casino section with Slots is intuitive to use because it features games grouped by type. When inside the Slots section, a player can utilize a dropdown Sort By list to display games in (reverse) alphabetical order, Newest – Oldest (and reverse) and by some other properties. Besides, there is a dropdown window for choosing a theme, like Las Vegas, Sports, and Wildlife (15 themes in total). By picking the needed item, a player will see games devoted to this theme only. Each game icon has two buttons with self-explanatory names: Real Money and Practice.
RTG games are fairly modest in terms of features. Players of Canada can expect to find there just basic features such as wilds and free spins. Sure, there are many exceptions, for example, Fantasy Mission Force (a five-reeler with multiplier wilds, free spins and Kaboom feature), Food Fight (a 9-line slot with a second-screen pick-to-win round) and Fucanglong (a 1024-ways slot with free spins, Dragon Mountain feature and Dragon Pearl bonus).
Many games feature a local progressive jackpot. RTG is perhaps the only vendor to have developed so many local progressives in its game suite. There are two types of local progressives:
- Slots where progressives are awarded at random. At the end of any random spin, a player has the chance of hitting a progressive jackpot. Bet sizes are taken out of the equation and even penny bettors qualify
- Slots where progressives are symbol driven. In this case, a slot can have a special combination of symbols that should be hit to release the winning. In some cases, games can have two or more progressives of different win values, like in Dream Run that has Mini and Major jackpots.
Some games, like Megasaur (also a networked progressive slot), Vulcan and Hairway To Heaven, also have a so called Feature Guarantee concept – the related games have a badge on it to show they are made with this concept in mind. The logic behind the concept is to calm down the player who is not sure whether a certain bonus feature is going to activate or not. A game based on this concept has a counter that counts down to zero with every spin. As soon as the value on the counter reaches zero, the feature is guaranteed to activate, unless the slot activated the feature by itself during the normal gameplay. This exciting concept adds fun and makes the player rest assured he will not lose the desired feature during the specific game session. Besides, slots also have a Buy Feature button enabling a player to purchase the feature at a price.
Table games by RTG
Table games are found in the same name section. It features eight BJ games such as European Blackjack, Super 21, Match Play 21 and Blackjack + Perfect Pairs. Most titles have optional side bets for more intensive action and enhanced winning opportunities. Roulette comes in three basic variations, which are well known to everyone: European, French and American tables with somewhat outdated graphics. The provider seems to have never updated the roulette tables, which were released many years ago. Ultimately, fans of craps and baccarat will locate one game of each type in Silver Oak.
