All the Gs in the House
If you’re a straight up G – a gambler that is – then Gambler’s Paradise is the slot for you. Or one of them at least. After taking in the ornate backdrop, featuring a stage flanked by rich red and gold curtains and a chandelier overhead, you will almost certainly be distracted by the sultry female who has entered stage left. She’s wearing furs and a slinky red dress that can best be described as revealing.
Once you’ve gotten over the shock of just how much cleavage she’s displaying, your next thought may be to wonder where the spin button has gotten to. Booming Games have gotten clever here, integrating the game controls with the dark wood panelling and vertically hanging the spin and autoplay buttons from the ropes used to control the curtains. They’re not normally this creative, and it’s good to see.
A Peroxide Paradise
If you can stop staring at the peroxide blonde with her cocktail glass and low cut dress for a moment, you’ll spot that there’s nary a J, Q, K or A symbol to be seen on the reels – instead there are suits of cards: hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs. Give ‘em a spin and with a yank of the rope and a mechanical clank, they set off on their mission to usher in the sort of big wins that are commensurate with living in a gambler’s paradise.
This is a fixed payline 5-reel slot, with 20 lines and a total bet that can be set between 0.6 and 60 per spin. As with the majority of slots, to see some sort of real action, the higher you set the bet the more likely it is to happen. When a win arrives, the symbols will be framed in gold, as if set into old fashioned picture frames. It’s all very tasteful and opulent.
Dice are Nice
Notch up a win on the reels and you’ll be given the chance to gamble your winnings in a dice game. Three dice appear atop a gold picture frame, two of them balanced upon one another. Your task is to guess whether the next number will be a one or a six. Pull the rope corresponding to your prediction and, with a small jerk, the dice will perform a neat little flip. Before placing each bet, you’ll be shown how much you stand to make should you call it right. Without getting too carried away, it isn’t hard to rack up a couple of correct guesses in a row, pocketing a tidy sum in the process.
When you’ve had enough, collect your winnings or – and here’s where things get neat – split the pot and gamble half. Booming Games have splashed out on the design on this game; click on the gear wheel icon for example to access the game settings and you’ll be taken to an intricate control room where music, sound effects and spin speed can be adjusted.
Wild About Gambling
Wild, a roulette wheel, is worth 30,000 for five and will substitute for regular symbols except for scatter. Scatter, which appears as a pair of dice, will trigger free spins with three or more in view. Those two special symbols might be the most valuable in the game, but thanks to the gamble feature, they’re by no means the only way to win big.
Try Gangster Gamblers
If you’re looking for something similar to play, there’s also Gangster Gamblers by the same developer. It’s a medium variance slot with 15 paylines and the prospect of winning up to 10 free spins. Thematically, you could also try Original Gangstar by Noble Gaming, but it’s not a patch on this slot if truth be told.
Gambler’s Paradise is a distinctive looking slot from Booming Games that is simple and yet so much fun. It looks good, plays smoothly and it’s easy to notch up wins in the base game. Trigger free spins and you truly will be in paradise. What more could you wish for from a slot?
