This is my review of Paradise8 Casino.
There are many beliefs as to what happens when our earthly journey ends. Some believe that we will be reincarnated and live again as another living being while others think that there is no life after death whatsoever. Another pretty dominant belief is that our so-called final destination is chosen based on how we have lived our life or whether we have believed in certain godly powers. These beliefs often see us going to either heaven or hell.
Heaven is, of course, paradise, and Paradise8 Casino seemingly tries to bring heaven down to earth for every one of us to enjoy. At least this is what is being implied by the name of their online casino brand, which was launched already in 2005.
While it is rather hard to find any company details on the Paradise8 website, I have it on good authority that the casino is operated by SSC Entertainment N.V. Next up, we will see whether this casino actually is heaven on earth!
Looks and feel of Paradise8 Casino
The visuals at Paradise8 are not that godlike—nor are they really indicative of a paradise island either. Instead, the casino is just like your average online casino. As a result, describing its looks feels kind of irrelevant. It is kind of just there.
While Paradise8 lacks visual splendor, at least the site is super easy to use. You can easily find everything that you need on the homepage already without having to scroll up and down searching for things of interest.
Bonuses and rewards
Paradise8 has got some nice welcome offers lined up for all its newest customers. At the time of writing, I could find both a 100% and a 200% deposit bonus here—and even a 300% bonus for all those using Bitcoin! What is more, the playthrough requirements seemed quite decent as well with no limited max cashouts.
Sadly, not all the bonus-related terms were easy to find at Paradise8, which is always an obvious cause for concern as to whether there are still some hidden rules that the casino does not want you to know. Because of this, I would advise you to find out all the up-to-date information before trying out any of the casino’s bonuses.
I have played at online casinos for years and years and have accumulated a taste for certain game providers. When I hit a new online casino, I usually go straight after Push Gaming, Big Time Gaming, ELK Studios, Yggdrasil, Play’n GO or Thunderkick slots. I could name several slots from each of these providers, with Yggdrasil’s Neon Rush Splitz being my most recent favorite.
With Paradise8, though, you can only find games from Rival. To me, this is a huge negative, but I am sure that some people will find Rival’s games more than adequate for their gaming needs.
Safety and security
Paradise8 is licensed in Curacao, but, from what I have heard, they have had their fair share of issues on the trustworthiness side of things. Most of these might be over and done with, but you can never really tell when it comes to dubious online casino companies. For me, the biggest red flag is the lack of company information on the website. These folks are certainly not the most transparent of folks, which is something that always has my alarm bells ringing.
Banking options at Paradise8 Casino
There is a variety of deposit methods available at Paradise8. Bitcoin, Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Neosurf and Skrill would be but a few examples. According to the support staff, withdrawals take 1 to 7 working days to be processed, which is definitely somewhat suspicious from a company that has a history of seizing winnings accompanied with vague explanations.
Paradise8 providers its users 24/7 live chat support. The chat window could be a bit more modern though and not close every time that you look away.
My experience at Paradise8 Casino
Being that Paradise8 has chosen a less-than-transparent route in their business dealings, I cannot really recommend playing here. Ultimately, though, it is your prerogative to take my words with a grain of salt if you so desire. Just make sure to read all the terms and conditions then if you do!
