IGT are well known for their re-skinning of popular title. Pacific Paradise is another machine that uses the hexagonal reel arrangements first set up in Siberian Storm. However this fishy machine does have a number of tricks up its gills that separates it from a number of other titles in the Multi-Way Xtra category, making it a fun slot that has a whole new watery dimension waiting for you.
You’ll be more than impressed with the aquatic graphics on offer from Mr Green. This machine gives you a chance to dive deep down into a watery facade that’s full of dynamically moving fish in an every changing background. The reels are beautiful and give the whole machine a sense of still calmness in the face of the red hot action that’s pumped out by the reels with every single spin.
The sound on Pacific Paradise has the blend of relaxation and excitement down to a tee. There’s plenty of serene noises in the background that perfectly complement the underwater scene, with a load of good activation noises added to the mix to create a very good audio soundboard that rewards players with big effects when they hit the right winning patterns.
The base game in Pacific Paradise gives you 720 ways to win. Every permutation of any given combination on the reels adds a plus one to the multiplier on your prize, meaning that if you manage to hit big combinations across a ton of stops, you’ll be looking at some big money. Wins read both from right to left as well as left to right giving you two ways to win. That’s not the only thing that offers double bubble here with split symbols available for some of the higher paying symbols on the reels giving you a chance to make up to ten strong combinations.
Like many of the other Multi-Way Xtra games this machine gives you a chance to rock it up with the stacked wilds system on offer. These often connect well with the other symbols on the reels giving you a chance to make combinations all over the grid.
Despite the fact that this machine has an old school scatter that pays out prizes no matter where it hits on the reels, you’ll need to stop in at least one electrical jellyfish on each reel to access the bonus round. You’re rewarded with eight spins for every combination of jellyfish, all of which take place on a second set of reels where you can hit some huge wins and even re-trigger the bonus round.
Slot Professor Says
Yeah, I’m definitely down with the action on offer from Pacific Paradise. This is a cool and clear slot machine that gives you a ton of chances to make some big money with the stacked wilds and split symbol system that’s nothing short of phenomenal. You might be forgiven for thinking that a machine with this much winning potential on its reels might actually have quite a small pay-table with only minor wins. However, this is anything but the case.
You’ll make plenty of prize paying combinations in the base-game here, with loads of chances to win straight off the reels. Where this does impact the game is in the bonus game activation frequency, so make sure you’re not holding out for a free spin round as you might do with other IGT titles that are more prone to delivering the feature action.
One thing that’s definitely worth mentioning about Pacific Paradise is the fact that IGT have really stepped up the graphics to a level that might surprise development houses like Net Entertainment and BetSoft. This is a truly good looking game that’s getting towards a photo-real tip without appearing too mechanical or cheesy like the ill-fated Avalon II from Microgaming, which tried to give it the big one, but actually missed the mark.
