Paradise 8 Casino is an oddly named, Rival Gaming operation licensed under the jurisdiction of Curucao and owned and operated by the UK-based Silverstone Overseas Ltd, indicating that it is a Rival “white-label” casino. The casino offers the full range of Rival games including the latest i-Slots, and accepts players from most countries including the United States.
Paradise 8 software
Downloading and installing Paradise 8 was a simple process, taking only a couple of minutes on a DSL connection. Rival casinos do not have the same massive list of games that Microgaming casinos do, but what they may lack in quantity, they make up for in quality. The graphics and sounds of the games are stylish, yet functional and impressive, and the casino maintains a modern feel. The software is responsive and the games have been developed with smooth gameplay in mind, making it easy to navigate and play.
Rival table games and video poker
The games offered by Paradise 8 number around 80, and cover all the major variants you would expect to find in a casino, plus a few more. If tables games are your thing, they have you covered with Craps, Baccarat, multiple variants of Blackjack, 3 Card Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud, European and American Roulette, plus more all on offer. Video Poker players are also taken care of, with seven different video poker games offered at last count, all playable at 1, 5, 10, and 25 hand variations. You can also try your luck at keno, scratchcards, and other parlour games too.
Full range of slots
Rival software has become well respected due mainly to their superior offering of slots known as the i-Slots. These video slots up the ante as far as gameplay goes by offering interactive video bonus rounds with storylines that change and unfold as you play. The storylines also change between games so that no two games are ever the same. There are a handful of varying i-Slots on offer such as the golf-themed Hole in Won, film-noir era As the Reel Turns, and the whacky Cosmic Quest among others. The casino also houses a host of regular video slots, as well as traditional three reel slots. Rival has recently introduced a few new progressive jackpot slots to their casinos. To be fair, it must be said that the 5-figure jackpot amounts are rather lower than other casino groups.
When it comes to Rival casinos, one thing they do very well is their bonus system. Fully integrated into their cashier in the software, you are easily able to see exactly which bonuses are on offer. If you want to claim a bonus offer, just click on it and away you go – no contacting support personnel, filling in web forms, or entering bonus codes. Simple and elegant, this is the way all casinos should be when it comes to bonuses. And its a good thing too, because Paradise 8 offers a variety of bonuses to new and existing players, including a no deposit bonus for you to try out the casino for free after signing up.
Banking and casino support
Should you have any enquiries or run into any problems, the customer support department of Paradise 8 is available via live text chat, email or telephone, 24 hours a day. Our experience has shown that the support crew, which is shared amongst a large number of RIval white-label casinos, does not exactly offer 5-star service.
The cashier at Paradise 8 offers a range of deposit and withdrawal options, although not as extensive as we would have liked. All major credit cards are accepted, along with e-wallets such as Neteller and Moneybookers. Unfortunately Paradise 8 has rather restrictive withdrawal terms – with a monthly limit of $2500, you could be waiting a while to receive a significant win.
