BLACK DIAMOND CASINO – by Mellinda de Bruyn

South African Players: Yes

Software Type: Rival, Betsoft

Black Diamond Casino permits South African players to register with them to play online casino games. They have been established in 2009, so they are in the business for 17 years. This is absolutely a positive point, as it shows stability to prospective players.

Games include slots, video poker, table games and other specialty games like Keno and scratch cards. Black Diamond Casino focuses mainly on slots and therefore has a bigger variety of slots available.

Black Diamond has the same games, vision and mission statement as Spartan Slots as they are owned by the same company. They also offer the same welcome bonus, jackpots, and gaming rules. The theme is also animation which creates a fairy tale impression to players, enhancing the “anything is possible” notion.

Other available currencies are “C$, €, A$ and $”. American players are however not permitted to play on this casino site.

As a South African player, it is good to be able to deposit in Rand as no conversions to other currencies are necessary.

Deposit and withdrawal options include VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Money Transfers, Bank Wire, ECO, Skrill, Neteller, Paper Check and Pay safe card, Entropay, Inpay, Sofort, WebMoney and QIWI Wallet. Easy EFT should, however, be considered as this allows South African players to make real money transfers to the casino account possible if you do not have a credit card.

When you deposit more than R500, the casino donates R10 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This is the casino’s Community Social Investment, as they give back to the community in the form of donating towards awareness programs.

The casino offers very good security rules which uphold strict confidentiality regarding information supplied by a member. All telephonic conversations are recorded for security, training and quality assurance purposes.

When making use of deposit bonuses, the wagering conditions are 25 times your bonus and deposit. On free Bonus Money, the wagering is 99 times the bonus amount, cash back bonuses have no wagering conditions.

Withdrawals can only be done once a week and take 24 hours to 12 business days to process once it has been approved. Approval takes 72 hours. So from request to the money in your bank, it can take up to 15 business days. A minimum of R500 per all withdrawal options is available. Paper Check has a minimum of R3000 and Bank Wire has a minimum of R5000 withdrawal limit. As an online casino player, this might deter people to register with the casino, as many South African players do not make use of credit cards and therefore would use the Bank Wire method to withdraw. So if you do not win big, you are not permitted to make a withdrawal.

Black Diamond Casino a registered casino and has Norton Secured, McAfee Secure, Gaming Labs Certification, PCI certification. The game providers are RIVAL, Betsoft, Parlay, and Pragmaticplay.

As an online casino player, I personally have deleted the software from my computer as the wagering conditions when making use of bonuses are extremely high and almost impossible to meet. Winning percentages on slots are very little, and since the withdrawal minimum on Bank Wire is so high, it was not worth the effort.

But, if you are looking for a fun time, and you are not really serious about winning money, the casino can definitely be recommended as the slots are quite fun to play on.
