Paradise 8 Casino another is a Rival gaming software powered casino that has been online since early 2006 and really has come a long way since then. What was once the home of cheesy graphics and an amateurish look and feel has now undergone quite a makeover and is presented as a sleek and professional package which I must say is pretty impressive!
If you know anything about Rival gaming powered casinos you’ll know that they are the ones that offer you the exciting I-Slots games which are interactive storylines which unfold while you are playing the game. Hit a certain combination and you move on to the next level, while following a story. This story will continuously be developed and become longer as they continue adding new scenes. Now add to this a few years of experience and you will be very impressed!
Paradise 8 Casino is part of the established 400 Group which also operates Cocoa Casino, the well known Da Vinci’s Gold Casino as well as This is Vegas.

There is also a refer a friend promotion wherein if you Refer a Friend to the casino that plays for real money, you will be eligible for a bonus of $50! Kinda makes you want to crack out that address book doesn’t it?
When it comes to Loyalty Programs, Paradise 8 has a similar offering to most other casinos and operates a comps point system wherein you earn points for playing at the casino.

The software at Paradise 8 Casino is easy to download and all you have to do is follow the prompts in 3 easy steps. Once the download is complete you’ll be provided with the option to play for real money and will need to fill in a form with some personal particulars and you’ll be ready to get started.
The one thing I noticed with regard to playing at this casino is that it is free from the intermittent delays that you often experience in other online casinos, so there’s no frustration in waiting for games to load and run. Also, the graphics and sounds are also superb and are delivered in a highly realistic manner that just keeps you coming back for more! Another great thing is that you can now turn off the music that once played incessantly in the background which for me is just an added plus!

Safety and Security in banking transactions are a priority at Paradise 8 Casino and you can carry out transactions here with complete peace of mind. I deposited my usual $100 via Neteller and headed off to the casino to play.
When it comes to games, Paradise 8 Casino offers over 60 Rival powered games which have highly original features. You will find the conventional casino games such as table, card and video poker games but what has always had people talking and coming back to the casino are the Interactive Slots which offer a new approach to how slots are played. I-slots makes you feel as if you are playing your favourite slot game for the first time even when you have played the game a hundred times before because every time these games have something new to offer – new twists and turns, new endings or new dialogues. These are always the games I play first and this time around I started off with one of the five I-slots on offer, Reel Crime Art heist which is themed according to the title and makes for some exciting gambling.
After a good couple of hours and dollars spent there (I had to reload my account twice!) I finally moved on to the more generic games, although if not for the review, I don’t think I ever would, i-slots are just that good! Paradise 8 offers both 3 reel and video slots and so I checked out a few of these including Future Fortunes, Atomic age, Goldrush and Surf Paradise…all of which were highly entertaining but somehow not paying out!!!
Next it was on to the table and card games, of which there are many to choose from including Baccarat, Blackjack, European and American Roulette, Caribbean Stud, Let it Ride, Pai Gow Poker, Red Dog, 3 Card Poker, War, 15 Blackjack games including eight multi-hand games and the all new Gold Series blackjack. Many different casino poker games like Red Dog, Poker Pursuit, Cyberstud Poker and Let it Ride Poker, Low and High limit Baccarat and more. I played a few hands of multi-hand blackjack but found that my money disappeared rather quickly and so I moved on to the European Roulette table where I finally won $300 which was a huge relief as my balance had taken a pounding.
I then moved on to the Video Poker games on offer…all of the traditional favourites are there and so I played Jacks or Better and proceed to have a lot of fun doing so. Before my balance was totally depleted it was back to the i-Slots…what can I say, they’re simply addictive!
Any time you need any kind of support, Paradise 8 Casino’s friendly and professional support team is available on email, telephone or Live Online Chat. One the few occasions I have contacted the team at Paradise 8 I’ve found that response times are reasonably good, the service standard is generally very high and you walk away feeling like you’re a valued customer.
This is a casino I can definitely recommend if not purely for the i-slots, but also for the good promotional and loyalty offerings and professional customer support. It’s really a refreshing change from the usual casinos out there and I’m sure you’ll be as addicted as I am in no time at all!
