Should you vacation at Paradise Casino?
Paradise Casino offers a good selection of slots from all the important providers. You’ll be able to play games from NetEnt, PlayNGo, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Scientific Gaming or Big Time Gaming. If you’re interested in live casino tables they also feature Evolution Gaming. So you get all classic Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat tables as well as the newer “fun tables” such as “Deal or No Deal” or “Dreamcatcher”.
Unfortunately, it seems that they were missing Gamomat from their lineup. This means German players are going to lose out on playing some classics like Ramses Book, Books and Bulls and Royal Seven.
Paradise Casino seems to have gone for a cartoony “beach” theme to fit with their name. However, we felt that the colors they used were bland and washed out in contrast to a bright and energetic feel we would have expected. Everything seems to have a “boring” filter put on top of it.
For their homepage they went with a simple and standard setup with a banner and the lobby underneath. We were quite surprised to see the banner only had an ad for their welcome bonus and nothing else. Most online casinos usually put a scrolling banner here to advertise their other features as well to new players.
The site was easy to navigate and it was clearly made with a “mobile first” approach. While the desktop experience was acceptable, only when we explored the site on mobile did all the elements fall “in their place”.
We were pleasantly surprised by Paradise Casino’s attempt to improve the game filtering. They added “themes” and “paylines” besides the standard “Game Provider” and “Game Name” fields that everyone has. Even though they didn’t add too many themes, it does show that they are at least thinking of providing a better navigation experience to the players. We hope they’re not going to stop here and continue adding more categories to make things even easier to find.
Paradise Casino starts right off the bat with a strong welcome offer in this space: 125% bonus up to €100 plus 25 Free Spins. It’s great that they have the confidence to offer new players such a good bonus on their first deposit. We definitely got more play out of it than on other brands. Afterwards they follow it up with another 75% bonus and 25 Free Spins, finishing their welcome package on a strong note.
Veteran Player rewards and events
If you’re a returning player at Paradise casino you can, first of all, expect a daily 25% bonus up to €500. While the match percentage isn’t high, it’s available everyday. With such a high limit you’ll always get some extra value for your money.
Next they provide you with a daily cashback based on your losses for the previous day. As long as you lose more than €50, they’ll give you a 1x wagering bonus. What’s the value? It depends on how much exactly you lost, but it’s between 5% and 11% of your losses up to €1000.
Third of all, like all other brands on this platform, they feature Tournaments. The rewards are quite reasonable for a recurrent small event: a few hundred euros and free-spins . The leaderboard is clear for everyone involved, which is greatly appreciated. However, they don’t have a short presentation about “How it works” anywhere that’s easily accessible. Besides, all games seem to be eligible, even live casino games for some reason, which is something we haven’t really seen before very often.
Finally, they also feature a few reward levels that can you can increase by playing more. Upon achieving each level, you get some free spins as a prize. Unlike a lot of the other online casino brands we’ve seen, Paradise casino only features 4 levels. More than that, they reset every month. So while they lose the feeling of “progression”, players gain a recurrent way to get more rewards.
Understand these T&Cs before depositing
As a brand operated by N1 Interactive, a lot of the comments on their terms and conditions are going to apply to Paradise Casino as well.
Paradise Casino seems to feature a pending period which can go up to 3 days. In our experience this is quite a lot if you end up on the higher end. We’ve come to expect 24 hours as a standard and the more qualitative casinos out there will feature same-day processing as the norm.
Next, let’s tackle their maximum monthly withdrawal amounts. Paradise Casino offers a weekly limit of €15,000 on withdrawals as well as a maximum of €50,000 monthly limit. If they have to put limits, these are pretty good limits to accept, from a player perspective. They make it easier to withdraw big wins compared to a lot of other casinos, even ones from this white label provider.
Lastly, it seems that phone numbers and phone conversations are vital for Paradise Casino’s KYC process. They have a specific term: if your phone number is incorrect or if they cannot get you on a phone call for KYC purposes, they reserve the right to confiscate your winnings. That feels excessive in the age of email and automated KYC tools.
The first important aspect is that there are maximum cashout limits everywhere. Every bonus Paradise Casino offers its players is usually limited in its withdrawal amount. You know what we think about limiting maximum bonus cashout . To be more precise:
- anything that doesn’t need a deposit is limited to at most €50 cashout; very low,
- the free spins rewards from level-ups have variable limits from €50 to €250, but this one is still a bit confusing given the above term,
- all other bonuses: welcome, weekly reloads, VIP bonuses have a maximum withdrawal of €1000,
- tournament prizes have a maximum cash-out of €2,000.
This last one is not a big problem for the runner-ups, but for the winners this amount can prove to be a little on the low side. While limits are not as low as the Dazzletag brands, these still impose high restrictions on the amount you can win. Because of this we have to deduct some points because it can make playing highly volatile games not fun at all.
In addition to the above, Paradise Casino has a very large list of excluded games. It’s a good idea to check this list before depositing if you intend to claim a bonus since you could end up not being able to play your favorite game.
On the wagering front, we were happy to see a below average 30x multiplier on the deposit amount. They didn’t seem to have too many complicated categories with variable wagering multipliers… with one exception. Classic slots don’t have a clear wagering contribution and to find out what it actually is you need to go to the live chat; it doesn’t appear anywhere else.
That being said, it amazed us to find out that their cashbacks have wagering requirements. Contrary to the name “cash…back”, it seems you need to wager the money one time before it is available to withdraw. Very strange.
All in all, Paradise Casino has all the elements for a great experience, but lacks polish. The bonus terms and conditions severely diminish the enjoyment players could get. Because of that we can’t give it more than an “okay” ranking among the rest. But if you don’t intend to rely on bonuses for your fun, you can have a pretty good time with Paradise Casino. Should you decide to check it out, you can find it here.
