Review of Slots Oasis
Slots Oasis casino is a Real Time Gaming powered casino from the Rushpod group, owners of the well known Cherry Red and Rushmore casinos. It accepts players from most places around the world, including our friends in the USA, offers over 100 games to play, and is run by an established management team. Pitched as an Egyptian-styled oasis in the middle of the desert, the purple and gold themed casino bills itself as "payline paradise".
Warning - extremely slow payments
Just a general note to warn that customers of the casinos in this group have reported to us incidences of extremely slow payment of winnings. Players should expect to wait at least a month to receive a payment from this group, and each payment is generally capped at a maximum of $2000 per instalment.
Update (November 2012): It appears the casinos for this group have either disappeared or gone out of business without warning. We have added them to our blacklist because even if they do re-appear they have irreparably lost what little trust they may have had with this latest development.
As you would expect after seeing the Cherry Red and Rushmore Casino websites, Slots Oasis does not disappoint visually. Visitors to the casino are greeted by a slick flash-powered website which is informative and easily navigated. You may play for real money or fun mode by either downloading and installing the casino software, or play a smaller selection of games via their instant play flash casino directly in your web browser.
More than just slots
Despite being named Slots Oasis, the casino offers a wide selection of casino games including the usual table and card games, roulette, video poker and keno plus more. But I'll assume the slots are what you are most interested in, so lets take a look at them for a moment. Slots Oasis offers a large range of slots, from classic 3-reelers such as the devilishly-themed Its Good to be Bad and US-centric Sevens and Stripes, through to ultra-modern video slots featuring 5 reels, multiple paylines, bonus games, and autoplay. And as the casino is connected to the Real Time Gaming jackpot network, you have the chance of landing a huge payday with progressive jackpots such as Jackpot Pinatas over the million dollar mark at the time of this review.
Security and Customer Service
So we’ve covered that they have all the games any rational human being could possibly want; how about their security and online safety? Slots Oasis uses third party testing by Technical Systems Testing, to ensure that all of their games use a truly fair random number generator, which demonstrates the transparency that we players deserve and the fair game play that everyone in the industry should demand. That alliance coupled with their transaction encryption and code of responsible gambling gives me that extra bit of assurance that I look for prior to placing my money on the table.
The major offer that you are bombarded with when visiting the casino's website is of course the 400% sign-up bonus for slots players, which means you can for instance deposit $200 and receive an extra $800 to play with. Apart from that, they have also offer weekly bonuses, and weekender bonuses for frequent players. As always, be sure to check the bonus info accompanying this review, and consult the casino terms and conditions before claiming any bonuses so you know exactly the amount of wagering that is required should you accept a bonus.
Banking and withdrawals
This is one area which Slots Oasis, and indeed the other casinos in this group, could improve on. After earning a great reputation in the first few years of operation, this group has let things slip in 2011. Players can expect to wait over a week if not more, to receive their funds, especially those attempting a bank or wire transfer. The casino also adheres to its $2000 per week withdrawal policy, even for progressive jackpot wins. Thumbs down.
Like any oasis Slots Oasis has more to it than initially meets the eye. Unfortunately one of those things is payment delays which are exacerbated by the low weekly withdrawal limits. American players who are wise to the delays may want to check Slots Oasis out, but players from Europe and elsewhere with a wider choice should think twice.
