Please beware, Oliver Curran is now at PowerBet and there is a good chance that you might not get paid if you win there. :confused:

I won a few thousand dollars a while back and I'm sure he wasn't there because if he was, I wouldn't have gotten paid.

You'll get shafted like I did for $5,ooo and be told that you're banned from a sister casino. Your best bet (no pun intended) is to stay far away from PowerBet.

I played there several months ago and when I deposited and looked at my Neteller account it said "Doloplex".

My heart just sank. Oh my God!

At the time their site did not seem associated with them. But anyway, I got lucky and won about $1000. And when I say lucky, I mean lucky, because I GOT PAID! And fast too.

I was really sweatin it too.

A few days ago it was confirmed because I got an email with a typical Crystal Palace-type promo, from Power Bet, signed by Oliver.

I dunno. I'll report that I had a very good experience with them, but I was nervous as heck. :D

I won $2,300 there this time last year and it took them about four months to pay me. I had to goto Montana review.

We all have to be very cautious now that the casinos are merging and then trying to "backdoor" us.:cool:

Well their site still says under FAQ:

"This site is owned and operated by Portvale Corporation Ltd., 74A Ayios Eleftherios Street, PO BOX 28770, 2082 Nicosia Cyprus."

So what's up with that?

Maybe Oliver Curran could comment on this board what's really happening with this casino. It would be nice to know.

To be fair, I have played at two of his casinos and been paid both times. But I'm scared to try them again. :confused:

This site and their sister site silversandscasino.com are indeed owned by or affiliated with (not sure to what extent) by Oliver Currain. They are using Doleplex Holdings to process Neteller payments some of the time.

They're also using same coupon codes (WINBIG1/WINBIG2) on both silversands and crystalpalace, even though the casino client itself is different. And also same lingo in terms and conditions part....

The Silver Sands sign on promotion of $777 for new players offers you 2 bonuses:

Bonus 1) 100% FREE up to $300 with your initial deposit in the casino. (Coupon Code: WINBIG1)

Bonus 2) 100% FREE up to $477 with your second deposit in the casino. (Coupon Code: WINBIG2)

Please note: In order to redeem Bonus 2 with your second deposit in the casino, players need to have redeemed Bonus 1 and lost the entirety of their deposit + bonus + winnings. Only then will players be eligible to redeem Bonus 2.

The wagering requirements are as follows for Bonus 1:

Players must wager at least 7 times the deposit + bonus on any games excluding roulette, craps, baccarat, pai gow poker and pontoon with every $1 wagered on blackjack and video poker/multi-hand video poker games counting as 50 cents. Prior to making a withdrawal exceeding the deposit, an amount greater than the sum of the deposit + bonus is required.

However, I must say that I got paid by both silversands and powerbet within a week, so it's not your typical liver Currain outfit.

Hope I was of some help :)

Actually that's NOT true... Silversands and Powerbet had the same terms and conditions as other Oliver Curran casinos for at least a year now (since I first found them) -- you can even check web archiver. So unless you played there really a long long time ago (2 + years ago I'd say), I am pretty sure you got paid by Oliver, lucky you ;)
