Sometimes, Tenerife and Benidorm just don’t quite cut it when it comes to providing a relaxing summer holiday. Luckily, Thai Paradise is an online slot that allows you to wave all your cares away as you lie back and enjoy the sea view and sunshine of South-East Asia. And, while you are topping up your tan (virtually, of course), you can enjoy the sight of the local flora, fauna, and wildlife.
But, there’s more to the Thai Paradise online slot than good looks alone, which is no less than you’d expect when you discover that the software company behind it is none other than Playtech – the maker of the Age of the Gods online slot series (e.g. Goddess of War and Furious 4), Gladiator, and Monty Python’s Spamalot.
Although Thai Paradise doesn’t boast a progressive jackpot like some of the other Playtech online slot games that we’ve just mentioned above do, it has a particularly interesting (not to mention, potentially lucrative) special feature.
When the Free Games Bonus is triggered, you receive ten free spins. Plus, one of the paytable symbols is chosen to act as a mystery scatter symbol throughout. This means that you have much greater chances of retriggering the bonus, and as Playtech haven’t capped the number of free games that you can win, the sky’s the limit!
There’s a rather attractive top jackpot to play for too, which is worth five thousand times your total stake. And, you have the opportunity to claim it when you begin to play the game with a bet of 15p to £15 per spin.
Forget Thailand’s busy cities and resorts like Bangkok and Koh Phi Phi and prepare yourself for a far more relaxing experience when you start to play the Thai Paradise online slot. In fact, Paradise is an excellent word to describe the view that this Playtech title affords you.
In the main game, you have a stunning ocean view, and the water is so clear and warm, that you just want to run on in and enjoy a swim. But, when you load the paytable, the scene changes to that of a sun-drenched beach complete with palm trees and the ocean in the distance.
Just when you thought that the playing experience couldn’t sound any more idyllic, there’s a Thai style musical accompaniment that treats your ears while your eyes take in the impressive scenery before you.
Thai Paradise uses five reels, fifteen non-fixed paylines, and three rows of symbols, and you are paid cash prizes for forming winning combinations using three or more identical symbols from left-to-right across the reel set.
The paytable symbols are all related to Thailand. There’s an exotic pink orchid, a beautiful young female, a white elephant with a red-and-gold headdress and waistband, a picture of a wooden boat sitting by the water’s edge, a temple, and five playing card symbols (N.B., A, K, Q, J, and 10) written in a Thai-style font.
The paytable and game rules can be viewed by selecting the “Info” button at the bottom of the screen, and next to it, there are plus and minus buttons that let you change your line bet and the number of paylines that are enabled. Over to the right of these, there are the Auto Play setting, Turbo Mode, and the Spin button.
In the Thai Paradise online slot, the wild symbol is represented by the pretty pink orchid. It pays out a decent sum for all-wild wins, plus it makes it easier to achieve profitable winning combinations as it can replace all other symbols on the reels.
Somewhat unusually, the pink orchid symbol that acts as the wild doubles as the scatter symbol in the Thai Paradise online slot. Therefore, at the same time that it’s helping you create winning combinations in its role as the scatter symbol, it has a chance of awarding the bonus game.
You need three of the wild-scatter pink orchid symbols to appear anywhere on the reel set if you want to gain entry to the Free Games Feature in Thai Paradise.
Once unlocked, the bonus game gives you ten free spins. But, that’s not all because the game also chooses one of the paytable symbols (N.B., but not the pink orchid wild-scatter symbol) at random to act as a mystery scatter symbol for the entire bonus feature.
The chosen mystery scatter symbol not only pays you scatter wins when it appears twice or more anywhere on the reel set on the same spin, but each time that three or more of it come into view, you get a whole new batch of free games. As the Free Games Feature can be retriggered an infinite number of times, you could enjoy hundreds of free spins on the house!
